Not really

There is some advice but a battery if used daily will wear out since it's only a 300 cycle unit. There are other issues such as noted in the sticky post at the top of this forum so I won't duplicate that.

And you have connection issues that you send it in for repair.

It's at 99% Why should it charge?

My current laptop is set on battery saver mode which let's it hover around the 80% mark. If it goes to 79% it does not start charging. Good way to cut back on charge cycles.

Not charging

Chances are it is one of two things, the charger/ac adapter or the battery. You can check the output of the charger/adapter with a volt meter, or take it to a shop, even radio shack to have it tested. If the adapter is putting out the proper charging current, chances are the battery has gone South. But....there is another thing that is fairly common with laptops, the input at the laptop itself, which of course is tied physically to the motherboard, a broken connection there can create a no charge situation and that, for most, is usually a shop job. First things first, check the output of the adapter.

Worked for me!

After going through all the instructions on many different sites, it wound up being a simple fix. After trying absolutely every install and reinstall and battery issue, it was fixed by simply moving the plug the other way from where it was normally sitting and it started charging right away. The female outlet to the ac adapter was worn. it's a little tedious, but it works. Not sure if I'll get the outlet fixed or not, but I'm back in business!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
