    Why does my Lenovo laptop won’t charge?  I tried to unplug it and re-plug it several times, but it is not working for me.

    I have checked the power socket. There is no issue, still, my laptop is not charging, why?

    Troubleshoot Lenovo laptop won’t charge the battery problem- 

    As far I know, People may face the Lenovo laptop not charging issue due to several reasons like-

    • The power adapter is broken or faulty.
    • The battery is completely dead.
    • DC connection is fused, or not working.
    • Power Ic issue.

    Let me go ahead and tell you how can you detect the reason behind Lenovo laptop not charging issue and how it will get them fixed.

    Check the power adapter- 

    When your laptop is properly plugged in, but it won’t charge. You should inspect the power charger.

    Do you see the burnt wire due to the short circuit? If yes, You need to replace the wire,

    If you do not find your power wire faulty, you should plugin this charging adapter into the other laptop.

    Now let’s see if it charging or not.

    If it can charge the other laptop successfully, it means, the issue is related to your laptop.

    Nothing seems to be wrong with your laptop charger.

    but if your charger won’t charge the other Lenovo laptop as well.

    Check the Dc Connector (charging socket)- 

    If you find your power adapter in good condition, you should check the DC connection on your laptop.

    Most of the time, People are unable to charge their laptop, due to the faulty dc connector.

    It is a charging point, which helps you in connecting the adapter to the power supply.

    If you see any broken wire into the DC connector, you need to fix it, and then connect the charging adapter again.

    The Battery is dead- 

    If you plug in the charger, it shows the charging icon but the storage stays at 0%. It means your battery is completely dead. That’s why it is not charging.

    In such a case, you have to replace the laptop’s battery, then your Lenovo laptop will start charging fine without any issue.

    Uninstall the driver- 

    Sometimes, you may identify this issue due to the driver’s problem.  In such a case, you should uninstall the battery driver, and then start working on your laptop.

    This will help you in fixing many problems.
