Then something has failed. At over a year we pop in a new battery then a new charger in that order. If that doesn't fix it we know it's a connection (RARE!) or the motherboard (no one replaces those.) Owners seem to hesitate on replacing the parts. Can't figure out why they do that since these parts do wear out (the battery) or fail.
I'm wondering if someone can please help me.
I have an Asus X551M running Win8.1. I haven't used it in quite a while (since October 2017, if the update history is anything to go by) and now it won't charge. It either says it's "plugged in, not charging" or "plugged in, charging", but either way it does NOT charge.
I left it plugged in overnight while switched off, hoping that would help but when I switched it on, it says it is "plugged in, not charging".
Please help. It may not be the world's greatest laptop but it has never let me down before and I like the machine. Plus, I won't find one running Win8.1 these days (yes, I LIKE Win8.1, thank you!) and right at the moment, I can't afford to replace it.
I mean, I can use it while plugged in but it's not very mobile then, is it?
If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.
