Battery Plugged in Not Charging in Windows 10 (Fixed)

Fix Battery Plugged in Not Charging in Windows 10 Issue

Peter Plank:

“I just upgraded my laptop today to W10, and now I can’t seem to charge my battery anymore, there were 0 problems before I upgraded from W8. What it simply says is “Plugged in, not charging”, this is pretty bad because my Laptop can only hold a max of 1½ hour (It’s a gaming laptop). Is there any way to check/fix it, because I don’t want to give it to a repair shop, and I have never even seen one…

Thanks for the help! “
