One of the most common reasons for a laptop not charging is that the charger itself is defective. If you have another charger at home, plug in your laptop.

1. Check Your Adapter

The first thing you should check is your power adapter. Many Asus laptops have a detachable charging cord that connects to an adapter.

Sometimes, the charging cable goes loose and won’t make a connection with the adapter. Due to this, your laptop won’t charge.

Ensure that your adapter is plugged into a working wall outlet and its switch is turned on. We often forget to turn on the switch and check other parts.

Check the charging cable for any physical damage if your adapter is plugged in and switched on. If you find any cuts or frays, replace the cable.

If your adapter and cable are fine, move to the next method.

Remove the battery from your laptop and press and hold the power button for 60 seconds to reset the power controller.

Now, insert the charger and press the power on button. Wait for your laptop to turn on.

If it’s turned on, it means your adapter is working fine. Now it’s clear that the issue is with your laptop battery health or battery driver.

The battery driver can also cause issues in charging a laptop. You should keep it up to date.

4. Update Battery Drivers

Outdated or corrupt battery drivers can also cause charging issues in Asus laptops. You should keep your laptop’s drivers up to date to avoid such problems.

Windows Device Manager

5. Cool Down Your Laptop

Heat is the enemy of battery health. If your laptop is hot because of multitasking, turn it off and leave it for 30 minutes to cool down on a cooling pad.

Your laptop will stop charging when the temperature rises to a certain level. The microcontrollers do this to prevent the battery’s health.

Once your laptop reaches the normal temperature, plug in the charger to see whether the issue is resolved.

6. Change Power Plan Settings

Open Asus Battery Health Charging app from the apps list and change the settings to Full Capacity Mode.

7. Check Battery Health

If your laptop’s battery is not in good health, it might cause charging issues. You can use the Windows Battery Report tool to check your battery health.

To generate a battery report, follow these steps:

Step #1: Press the “Windows + R” keys and type “CMD” in the Run dialog box.

Step #2: Press “Enter” to open the Command Prompt.

Step #3: Type the following command and press “Enter”:

powercfg /batteryreport /output “C:\battery_report.html

Step #4: Wait for a few moments while Windows generates the report.

Step #5: Open the report file (battery_report.html) and check your battery health.

You can also use third-party software to check your laptop’s battery health.

If your battery health is not good, you need to replace it. Removable batteries can be replaced easily, but non-removable batteries should be replaced at the service center.

8. Motherboard Repair

If you have tried all the above solutions, but your laptop is still not charging, it indicates a major hardware fault on your motherboard.
