Laptop says it's plugged in but not charging! Laptop isn't charging!
Okay, so the problem started a week ago. My Samsung Series 3 np355v5c-a01ub laptop which I bought around 2 years ago is refusing to charge its battery. The battery signal says it's plugged in but not charging. I have tried everything, from taking out the battery, booting it with AC power alone, uninstalling the Microsoft battery thingy from device manager. Furthermore, before my laptop stopped charging, I received strange messages stating I should change my battery. Also, I think the battery life had decreased significantly over the two years.
Would changing the battery fix this problem, or is it a software problem? I read somewhere this could be a mechanical problem i.e. some wire or something actually obstructing the charging mechanism probably caused by overheating, etc.
