Ok the gist of it is, "Plugged In, Not Charging". Bascially. my battery somehow was running dry and my laptop had somehow become unplugged. I was curuious, I dont have Dell RapidCharge anymore {it borked] So I had to find a quick fix but I dont know if its a permament fix.


Namely, I found a 6 step guide through DeskDecode. I forgot to come here. My steps were


1: shut down laptop

2: remove battery

3: Restart laptop

4: Device Manager; remove MS ACPI battery and MS Complaiant AC Adapter

5: Shut down laptopm reincert battery

6: Restart laptop when charge indicator comes on


So far it is charging at this time


But I am curious as this isnt virus related, is it a perm fix, or will it happen again ?


Much thanks!

Only time will tell. It's a suggested procedure for dealing with a problem that happens sometimes, and may or may not ever occur again.
