Battery issue (Charges for a while then says not charging)

Jump to solution

I have dell inspiron n5110. I upgraded to windows 10 pro.... Everything was okay but since the past week it shows a battery issue. When I plug in the charger, the battery shows charging for like 5-6 seconds and then it shows not charging. I again pull out the charger from laptop and plug it again and the same happens. Nothing changes on moving the charger a bit here and there...... Only charges  for 5-6 seconds when I plug it off and on.

When it stops charging check the system to see if the AC adapter is not being recognized (or gently jiggle the connector).  If the adapter shows unknown (F2 at powerup to check) the battery won't charge.  If the adapter remains recognized, it's more likely a dead or dying battery.

And yeah it actually charges for those 5-6 seconds. Don't know what's the issue.
