    BATTERY PROBLEM

    I have a thinkpad T 430. running windows 10 Home. I bought a 9 cell battery. The directions said to run it down to 2% then fully charge it. I ran it down
    to 3% then tried to charge it. The battery icon said plugged in Not charging. My Lenovo power adapter is 65 watts. How can I fix this?

    A real common problem with laptops is that the jack where the power supply plugs in break.

    You can try giggling it a little to see if it makes connection.

    It charges my other battery. Is this a Windows 10 problem.

    Is the new battery an exact match or is it an aftermarket battery?

    It is a 9 cell bigger battery. My laptop charger is 65 watts and 20 volts. Is that a problem or is windows 10 not allowing a charge?

    If this was a new battery from Lenovo, they might be able to help or exchange it. If it is a third party battery made in a back alley noodle shop and battery factory in Bangladesh, you might have more difficulty. A 65 watt charger should be able to charge a 9-cell battery, just slower. Windows 10 should not be a factor, especially if the computer is powered off during charging.
