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.

If still the same then take it back

Thanks Fruit Bat, your suggestion worked for me. My laptop was stuck on 98% not charging and now is up to 100% fully charged. I assumed the battery was on the way out, it's a couple of years old now. Simple when you know how eh?
