I tried this but when the download starts it says, " the AC adapter and battery must be plugged in before the system BIOS can be flashed" although I already do have both plugged in.
Hello - I am attempting to install the newest BIOS driver but I've received a notification that the battery must be at 10% for BIOS to flash. But as the nature of my problem is that my battery can't charge, there's no way I can get my battery up to 10%. Is there a way around this?
Dear Mr. Saharsh_Kapur
Thanks for you help.
I know the post too old, no need to create new post,
I have same issue, but i cannt install any bios driver.
cuz the battery charge less than 10 percent.
So I cann't try your suggestion!
I looked at a dozen websites for solutions. They all seemed to say to uninstall the ACPI Compliance Control Method Battery File, but that didn't work for me no matter whether I did it with the power or battery on. I gave in and bought a new battery and experienced the same "plugged in, not charging" issue with the brand new battery. I then tried going to the same part of the computer--Control Panel--System & Security System -- System -- Device Manager -- Batteries, but this time uninstalled the Dell AC/DC charger. And when it reinstalled after it was plugged back in, it worked! I now remember that when I unplugged the computer the portion of the cord connecting the charger box to the outlet separated from the portion of the cord connecting the charger box to the computer, and believe that is what triggered the software issue. I hope this works for others (preferably before buying a new battery).
Saharsh, thank you so much--this post is from 2012 but I stumbled on it today and it fixed the problem of "plugged in, not charging" immediately upon reboot! I downloaded the BIOS update and when I rebooted my battery icon was back (the icon had recently disappeared), it indicated that it was"plugged in, charging," and it charged--good as new. Thanks again.
