The battery in my Dell laptop is not charging - how do I fix it? When I check the battery status, it says 74% available (plugged in, not charging). It's been this way for about 1 week.

Unplug the power and let the battery run down all the way, then charge it all the way back up. This will calibrate the battery. You might need to do this a couple of times.

Thanks for the suggestions. I checked for updates and after installing them, the battery began charging again and now appears to be working correctly.
