Specs: Windows 7
I have a dell inspiron 1450 laptop. My battery is not charging while plugged in. I got a message "Plugged in not charging".

I spend last 2 weeks to solve this issue and till now no solution is work on my case. I already done the following steps.

1. Update the BIOS.
2. Remove the battery in power and put it back after some minutes.
3. Remove battery adapter from Device manager.
4. Try a new adapter with my machine.
5. Try a battery with my machine.
6. Change the power plan and reboot the machine and remove the battery.

I try all these steps and all are failed for me.

Did any of you face the same situation before ? Please suggest me solution.

My name is Prateek and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell.
As mentioned you are getting a error plugged in but charging and you have replaced the battery as well,
The problem you are facing can be with motherboard or adaptor. There are a couple of steps which you can follow to fix it.
1) Try to check whether your computer is detecting adaptor in bios or not.
2) You will get a blue screen and 1st option will be system under that you will see battery info , so you have to select that and you will see adaptor type over there , please make sure that your adaptor is plugged in at that time .
3) In case your computer is detecting the adaptor that means adaptor is fine.
4) As you have mention you have already replaced the battery and adaptor that means it’s a issue with the motherboard. So please get it replaced

Hope that would resolve the issue and you can use your computer.

Don't boot the laptop, let it charge up the battery. Allow about 4 hours for charging then boot the laptop and see if the battery level has changed.

If the adapter light is not on then the charger is faulty. If the charger is not the same as the one that came with the laptop then it is not compliant.

Sometimes the power jack can get damaged if the cable is knocked harshly, you might have to take it to a service center if no other resolution works for you.

You should not run the laptop with the charger on, the charger is just for charging the battery when the level drops to about 10% then you charge it while still using the laptop but you need to turn off the adapter when the battery is fully charged (or 99%).
