T430 charing issue when powered up

  Matt Flynn 02:24 25 May 2019

Hi, upgraded my t430 laptop with 1600x900 screen, 16gb ram, i7 qm CPU & backlit keyboard. Everything working as checked info & seems good. However, the AC Adapter now wont charge the battery while the machine is on. The charger works and powers laptop with no battery attached, the battery works with no AC Adapter attached & AC adapter will charge the battery while laptop is off. So do I need a higher wattage or amp AC adapter? Current one 65w...advice is very welcome as is other suggestions... I have tried uninstalling battery drivers etc but no luck...
