    SOLVED!

    I found out what was wrong.


    Yesterday, I had a new keyboard installed as one of the keys was faulty.


    While thinking about what could have gone wrong, I remember watching the technician "connect" the keyboard and how fidgety a job it was for him to slide in the connector.


    Then i thought, maybe with me flipping the laptop around a few times to remove the battery, it may have dislodged something, so I carefully removed the keyboard myself, and boom there it was, the connection was loose. The clip which is supposed to hold it down was not closed properly, and as soon a i lifted up the keyboard, the power source sprang into life.


    So my conclusion is that the keyboard connection,which is a flat piece of plastic with embedded circuits (I know, layman's terms), was causing some kind of short, or bad connection.


    Now everything is okay again.


    Thank you for your help in trying to figure this out, and my apologies for wasting your time.

    Glad you figured it out - cause I never would have guessed that

    It's never a waste of time to help someone.

    Is your battery charging now?
    Maybe I should just let a solved thread be solved

    Thanks for posting the solution you found.

    Thanks,

    Still have the same problem with my battery saying 70% available, (plugged in, not charging) though.

    Tried so many options around the net. You have any suggestions?

    The only thing I can think of is to poke around in settings - anything related to power
    Try changing the power plan
    Take a look at battery saver - turn it off
    Uninstall any 3rd party power utilities - this includes any OEM pgms that help save power

    It's possible that the problem caused by the keyboard also affected the battery. If there is or was a short on the board, then any electronic piece could be subject to failure. Only a technician could tell you that. It's up to you to weigh the cost - if you have to replace the Mobo after paying for diagnostics, it's not much more expensive to get a new machine.

    Good luck, another member might offer other suggestions.

    Is it possible that the laptop wont charge the battery until it reaches a lower percentage of charge?

    Each of my Acer laptop's ac adapters charge the battery, if battery is anything less than 99% charged, until the battery reaches 100%, then stops charging.

    What happens if you run off just the battery so it can discharge the battery then plugging it back in? Another possibility I thought of is that the meter just isn't showing the correct charge state.

    Have you tried cleaning the contacts on the battery? I use to have to take out my cell phone battery and clean the contacts with the eraser on a pencil. When the contacts were dirty the battery wouldn't hold a charge long even though the battery showed as being fully charged.
