  • May be the charger is faulty. You may try this on another computer or use a different charger.

    Get it diagnosed by the technician.

  • Hi,


    Based on my research, , the issue may be caused by several reasons.


    You could refer to the following information to solve the issue:

    Update battery drivers in Device manager.

    Unplug charger, shutdown laptop, remove the battery and plug in the charger, turn on laptop. After 2 minutes again shut down your laptop, remove charger and put the battery back on. Without plugging-in charger. turn on your laptop. See if the problems is solved. Repeat this step 2 times.

    Check the DC power jack. If it’s loose then you should replace it with a new one.

    Check the charger, if it’s working properly and giving required DC output for charging the battery.


    Hope above information can help you.
