I cannot charge my laptop

Hello guys,

There is something strange going on.
I cannot charge my laptop battery.

Before I plug my adapter into the side output of the laptop,I always make sure that the other end is plugged into the socket.

But the laptop is charging! There is not electric power coming in!

Could you advice please?

Thank you,

Yes, I have tried but unfortunately to no avail.

When you run your laptop from mains power it is also charging the battery - sounds to me that it is working normally

Hello Sea Urchin,
Thanks for your post.

No, even if I run a laptop from mains power, after plugging in charger I cannot get any electric power in the laptop.

Should it be obsolete or too weak battery?
My laptop is one year old.

Thank you

When the adapter is plugged in try pulling it slightly to one side, if it then works then I'm affraid it will proberbly be the socket that is connected to the motherboard.

First remove the battery just try running it on mains. If it works you need a new Battery, if not you need a new mains adapter
