Hi Acer Community,
I purchased my Acer Aspire Laptop v3-771-6621 in 2012. It was not used much for the 1st couple of years. Over the last couple of years, I have been leaving it turned on and plugged in to AC most of the time, and using it quite heavily.
In the last couple of months the "plugged in, not charging" warning has been displayed at the bottom right of the system tray and I have watched the battery icon get lower over the past few weeks from i.e. 80% down now to 39%. I also see an orange light flashing on the front of my laptop (seems to be for the battery).
How can I get the battery to start charging & check the battery quality (hope I don't need to replace it or the adapter)? I tried the recommended process of "uninstalling the MS ACPI Compliant COntrol Method Battery, Scan for hardware changes" a couple times and it did not fix the problem.
Your assistance is appreciated. Thank you.
