    Hard reset

    plugged in with ac adapter only - could power on & use

    unplugged ac adapter, put battery in - could power on & use

    with both ac adapter & battery inserted and powered on - no charging occurring and level goes down on use.

    Did a forced shutdown, booted up with ac adap only, uninstalled MS ACPI battery, shutdown, restarted with battery alone, again shutdown - powered on with both

    did a battery test from System diag F10 - passed ok

    tried different plug ports in my house with the same result

    did a powerdefault from cmd

    all the drivers are up to date from product site.


    What do the indicator lights on the laptop show? As far as I know Windows does not control battery charging, it just monitors it. My laptop's will charge the battery regardless of whether Windows is running or not. I'll get a red LED color if its charging. Then a blue or green color depending on the laptop when its charged to full capacity. Even when the laptop is turned off.

    As far as power led indicators are concerned, they show just as they would in a normal scenario.
    It's just that my laptop is not charging, battery getting low.

    I'll explain:

    Only AC plugged - white led

    AC plugged in with battery:
    In power off & power on - white led



    No amber led (the one for charging in my lap) anytime during several attempts.

    Hi,

    I had about 15 updates yesterday. So, I thought this was the big Update.

    However, today, I got 11 new updates on my laptop, and one of them is +400MB big. It said Windows 8.1 Update.

    When I checked my desktop PC, it hasn't installed this big update yet and it also can't find it. Is it possible that the special update will be rolled out in groups? So... not everyone or even every PC at the same household, will get the update at the same time?

    I was just wondering about this, because I have 4 systems to update, and only 1 of them is getting the Windows 8.1 Update at the moment.

    And yes, my systems have been updated last month, so it's all new updates that I received yesterday and now today.

    I still don't think it was one of the Windows updates that did it. If the laptop is turned off, how could the OS affect whether the battery charges or not? An update actually damaging hardware is pretty remote these days. I wish I new what to tell you to try. About all I can think of is make sure nothing is blocking one of the battery terminals. Lint or paper etc.

    Uuug, that let me scared!
    I had already backed up disc image before downloading the update, have to try it soon or do a restore.

    Note: now when i shut down lap totally & plug in lap with battery to AC supply, power led shows as it's charging.

    But, I have not found any problem with power led even while system was on - the battery is not charging that's all, with no errors in the battery icon in system tray nor any abnormal changes in power led.

    It's just that- everything showing up is normal but the lap is not getting charged.
    Some laptops won't charge if you unplug and plug back in from from laptop input. Try to unplug and plug in from power outlet to see if it charges.

    After carrying out various troubleshooting steps (including downloading the KB directly from Microsoft rather than Windows Update), I was initially of the opinion that it was a problem with the KB itself however I created a VM with Windows 8.1 and have since discovered that carrying out a clean Installation of Windows 8.1 and then installing both previously released and newly released updates, the KB2975719 update will install without any problems.

    All of my PC's are configured identically with the only changes being the removal of all the pre-installed metro apps (no use for these) alongside the removal of the following Windows features [...]
    Let me guess, you've removed the Tablet PC features from your system since it's not a tablet PC? Windows Update seems to have this obsession with finding a Tablet PC folder in the start menu of your Server 2012 (or whatever) machine, and if you've removed this completely useless folder then it won't install some updates. To fix this problem, go into \ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\ and create an empty folder "Tablet PC", then reapply the update.

    While you're waiting for it to reinstall, drink to toast to whatever cretin at Microsoft made installs on your desktop PC dependent on having a useless "Tablet PC" folder present in your start menu.
