    Hello @numan

    I am sorry to hear you are having issues. If you didn't try yet, I would suggest a battery reset attempt: 
    1. Unplug the AC power adapter.
    2. Insert a small paperclip in the battery reset pinhole and hold the button down for 5 seconds.
    Here is a video with the reset instructions



    If the issue persists We recommend the  contact with the support

    Best Regards,

    This is what Acer suggested to me.


    In this case I'll suggest you perform a battery reset please follow the below steps:

    Battery reset: Make sure the laptop is off or Press and hold the Power button down for 15 seconds until the system off.

    Unplug AC power adapter.
    Locate the battery reset pinhole on the bottom of the computer.
    Insert a small paperclip or Pin in the battery reset pinhole. Press and hold down the PIN for 10 seconds (Please do not apply to much pressure when pressing down the with the Pin as if it is found damaged Acer will not be held response for the damage, so proceed with caution) and release it.
    Let the computer sit for 10 minutes with no power.
    Connect the AC adapter and power on the system and charge the laptop for 30 minutes then switch on the laptop and monitor the battery indicator until fully charged.
