Model: Acer Aspire E5-575-338M
Time owned: 21 months
The problem has started recently in the beginning of the year of 2019. The laptop is being moved quite often, from a desk to a table, therefore the charging cord has to be rellocated as well. I usually keep the charger on the laptop all the time, unless there are times like "looking something up in a browser late at night" or "cheching social media and mail early morning" where the latop charger may be off, and the battery isn't being charged.
It has started with a small, almost unnoticable issue, where after moving the laptop to a different place, plugging in the charger into the laptop would not show that the device is charging and the orange light would not show in front of the laptop. Replugging the wire to the charging port a few times fixes the issue.
A couple months later, it got worse and worse. I would have to replug the wire up to 50 times before it will start charging. I believe that isn't actually a good thing to do, as mechanically it will weaken the port itself, and may cause damage.
Lately it can take more than 50 times, before the charger would start working, and I found out that if I turn the device off, while it isn't charging while the charging cable is plugged in, once the laptop shuts down, it will start charging.
And even now, this trick almost does not work either.
On the additional note, when the battery is charging during the laptop being operated, sometimes it just stops charging, causing me either to keep replugging the cable or shutting the device down for the trick maybe to work.
Once the laptop is set on a desk or a table, it is mostly stationary, and the AC adapter does not move. I highly doubt that the problem is with the cable itself or something in the charging port mechanical wise, since wiggling the plug in the port does not help any. The charger can start charging on it's own.
I believe at one point it will not charge at all.
I have tried the solutions that were given in the similar topics in this community:
1. Pressing the "battery reset" button with a small pin, while AC adapter is out, and waiting for 15-20 minutes. That worked for me right off the bat for the first time 2 months ago, a day after it changed back to the same state.
2. Uninstalling the battery drivers in the Device Manager. That did not do the trick either.
I would apprecite any help on this issue.
