Have you checked that the battery is inserted properly?

If it is, it may be faulty, and require replacement.

Laptop Battery not showing Charging 1. Turn off the computer, 2. Take the battery out 3. Take out the power supply 4. Push the power button down for 30 seconds. 5. Reconnect power supply 6. Then the battery. Should now show 100% charged. This is because sometimes the mother board gets static and this clears it and the reason it showed not charging was because it was fully charged.

Do be aware of the fire crisks of cheap replacements

Go for the genuine arrival
