Dell Laptop Battery Plugged In Not Charging

  • 0

I had the common problem of charger being plugged in but not charging, I tried all the reboot and tapping the power button etc, etc… None worked, so as long as the computer worked when plugged in I carried on, until now. It has completely died on me now, so help…
