    The battery's own internal charge control chip has failed. You need a replacement battery. Google A515-51G & battery for vendors that ship to your region. Price about $38USD for a new battery. Jack E/NJ

    If the laptop is booted and running, you don't need to do anything with the button. Jack E/NJ

    Turn the machine off. Remove the charger. Gently insert a paperclip into the battery reset pinhole on the bottom for about 30 seconds. Plug the charger back in. The charger LED should be steady orange. When it turns steady blue, turn the machine on again. Jack E/NJ

    Nope, Tried but didn't work out I would also like to add one more thing battery is only charging in turned off mode then runs fine for 2-3 hrs but not a single percentage raise during turned on mode.
    Video sharing is not available here else I'd like you to take a look at blinking pattern while pluging in then leter on it keeps on going in 1:3 ON and OFF manner.

    Open Device Manager. Click batteries folder. Right click on and uninstall each driver you find in the battery folder. Exit Device Manager without reinstalling anything. Then Open Control Panel. Search 'button' Click on 'change what the power buttons do'. Click 'change settings that are  currently unavailable'. Scroll down and uncheck the box for fast startup. Then shutdown Windows normally. Then turn it back on again with the charger plugged. Jack E/NJ

    @JackE
    I've tried gaming in battery removed mode, short with direct connection and laptop suddenly stopped like shut down.
    You sure my graphic card is ok and battery is gone.
    Because in my experience battery stop charging when there is a load on graphic card like gaming and stuffs required load on graphic card.

    >>>I've tried gaming in battery removed mode, >>>

    If this was heavy CPU/GPU power drain gaming, it might have exceeded the charger's rated power output. It may damage the charger, trip an internal charger circuit breaker, or cause the mainboard to shut down. Why did you try to run high power loads without first installing a replacement battery?  Jack E/NJ

    None of shipping dealers here have this product and those who have are charging way too much like almost $60USD. So I was just trying something assuming game might run without battery but didn't work out.

    >>>Only charging problem during gaming.>>>

    Battery power is complementing the charger power when the total power load demand exceeds the charger's power output. During those times, the battery is not being charged but discharged. Jack E/NJ
