Few days ago I found that although my Sony Vaio laptop was plugged in to the charging source the battery was actually not getting charged at all. I left the laptop on charging mode for almost two straight days but the battery charge didn't move up even by 1%.
|Sony Vaio battery not charging|
This was very frustrating since the Vaio Control Care tool showed that the charging performance of my battery is still "Good".
I, frantically, searched all over the internet for the solution and found that quite a few people have faced this problem and there are multiple solutions to solving this, which may vary from case to case.
Finally I found this one solution which worked in my case! Try it
- Put the laptop on charging mode.
- Shut down your laptop.
- Remove the battery and restart it.
- Now uninstall the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery driver. For this go to Device Manager >> Batteries >> Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery >> right-click Uninstall.
- Once this is done, shut down your laptop again.
- Now install the battery back into it and restart.
- That's it. Now your laptop should be getting charged.
Tip: You can set the amount of battery to be charged using the Vaio Control Care. To do this open the Vaio Control Care software and go to Battery (inside Power Management) >> Advanced Settings. Lower the percentage higher the battery life but lower the amount of standby time on battery mode, which is self-explanatory I guess.
Hope this helps you.
