    Default Laptop not charging

    i've been having this problem for probably a few weeks now, but have been too lazy to make a thread about it. I have a Dell Inspiron 15r laptop and it's always plugged in when i'm using it (except on rare occasions).
    This is my battery right now, and i don't know how to actually make it charge..i thought it was automatically supposed to do that when it was plugged in


    So my question is, how do i make it charge while plugged in?

    I had this problem.
    May just need to get a new battery.
    I am unaware if there are ways to change without being plugged in, unless there is a wireless charger.

    Well usually atmosphere's answer is the correct one. You have to run your pc on the battery and not always keep it on charge or it will cause premature failure.
    But here is a link to some other answers. Scroll down to the second to last and the last post.

    I was hoping the actual battery wasn't the issue :/ I don't wanna spend money on something like this unless i absolutely have to, so i'll search around to see if there are some other alternatives. Thanks though.

    It's your battery. Mine is the same way, except at 0%.

    What has said is correct. The technique Clay is referring to is called "conditioning the battery". Never keep your computer plugged it. I always do and I'm regretting it. My battery is crap now and the replacement is expensive.
    The reason your computer is doing this is because it's not conditioned right. It will not longer hold a charge. And at 9% is where it just pooped out, or it randomly charged and got up to 9%. Best bet is to replace the battery, but get a better one if you can. Take a look at the specs on it and find one that lasts longer and is better quality.

    Back to the conditioning. Always let your computer completely die. Never keep just plugging it in at 10% and go from there. Unless you really need to. Once and a while it's fine, but doing it all the time has long-term effects. Always let it charge up completely, don't keep unplugging and go at 50%. You get where I'm going with this?
