recently my laptop stopped charging... the AC is connected but the battry is not charging its telling me "plugged in not charging stil stays at 66%
I suggest you to try charging with the different adapter. You will need to replace the AC Adapter, if the Battery charges from the know good adapter. You may also run the hardware diagnostics to check if all the other components are working properly by following the steps provided in the link below:http://dell.to/11IdRhi
Please let me know about your findings.
