"I had this problem after buying a new laptop battery. I found a solution that seems to have worked here. The summary is: - Shut down the laptop - Unplug the power cord - Remove the battery - Hold down the power button for 10 secs ""to discharge connectors""(whatever that means) - Re-insert the battery - Plug the power cord back in and turn on the laptop"
When you power on your laptop, if your battery is above 95%. you will get the message ""plugged but not charging"" When you power on your laptop, if your battery is under 95%, you will see the message ""Plugged and charging"" until the battery charge reaches 100% (not 95%). That's why sometimes, even if you see that your battery is at 97% and charging also, that means before starting your laptop, the battery was under 95% and reaches 97% since then.
Here are the steps to fix the problem:
Click Start and type device in the search field, then select Device Manager. Expand the Batteries category. Under the Batteries category, right-click the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select Uninstall. WARNING : Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver. On the Device Manager taskbar, click Scan for hardware changes. Alternately, select Action > Scan for hardware changes."
