Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
There's a simple fix for this issue, but if the battery has physical or chemical problem, then I can't assure you. Here's the steps and you won't believe it:
1. Turn off laptop. 2. Unplug AC power. 3. Remove battery. 4. Replace AC power. 5. Turn on laptop, allow OS to boot. 6. Once logged in to the machine, perform a normal shut down. 7. Unplug AC power. 8. Replace battery. 9. Replace AC power. 10. Turn on laptop, allow OS to boot. The battery should once again be charging as normal.
I am not very sure why this works, but it does, after doing some research, it seems there's a protocol controlling the transferring of power between the adapter and the battery which enables to connect them when a specific sequence of connection is established. It's only my theory, so don't take it otherwise.
If this doesn't work for you, you can try uninstalling the "Microsoft ACPI Complaint Control Method Battery" from the "Device Manager", under "Battery: category. (be careful with other components, like similar to ACPI or battery related drivers, never touch them,).
You last option is replacing the battery.
If you need further help, let me know.
Thanks for using FixYa.
