I have Acer Iconia W700. It started showing message plugged in, charging, but not going past 6%. I've tried reinstalling ACPI drivers, etc. and it did not work. Purchased a new battery and changed to it. Then it showed same message with 10%. I've changed power settings to not sleep at 5% and so discharged it to 0%.
Now battery shows 0%, plugged in, charging. As soon as I disconect the power cord tablet goes to sleep.
I know battery is ok, because I kept power cord plugged in overnight, battery still showed 0%, I uninstalled ACPI drivers and then disconnected power cord and tablet kept working. I turned on some long youtube video and it played it over an hour for sure.
So battery is charging and working, but problem is somewhere else.
So far I've tried booting it with battery unpluged, uninstalling ACPI drivers multiple times and even cleanly reinstalled Windows 8.1. nothing seems to work. Any ideas?.
