I’d suggest that you follow the steps mentioned below and check for issue resolution.
I would suggest you to update the BIOS on the computer. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, then download the BIOS required onto the system and install it.
Also, we will need to determine if the issue is with the AC adapter or Battery. We will have to check the status of the adapter in BIOS; if the adapter is not detected properly the system will continue to receive power but will not charge the battery. Please follow the steps mentioned below to check if the adapter is detected properly.
Also, I would suggest you to run a thorough test on the battery. You can download Support assist from the link below and run the PC CHECKUP on Battery to check for issues
Please let me know the findings.
What I did was open the laptop and found the fan not spinning. Once I got it going the bios recognized it and it charged. Went off and on for a couple of weeks and now is charging regular. If it happens again I may just replace the fan.
I have a 5323 that is doing the same thing. I cant take the battery out, or do not know how to. I tried another charger and the message is the same. What should I do?
