If you also receive this error, you can try the following measures.  

Fix 1. Update the Battery Driver

A driver contains information about a hardware device. With this information, the computer can communicate with the device. The battery driver can identify the battery and detect the battery’s power level.

Sometimes, the PC isn’t charging just because the driver is outdated. Updating the driver will fix the issue. Here is the guide:

  1. Press the Windows logo key + X and then select Device Manager from the menu.
  2. Find Batteries and expand it.
  3. Right-click on the AC adapter and choose Update driver. Then, follow the wizard to update the battery driver.

Fix 2. Check the Cable and the Port

Sometimes, the laptop plugged in not charging issue is caused by the damaged cable or the wrong port. Therefore, you should check if the power cable is damaged and if the port supports charging. If the port is the power port, you should check if it is loose, dirty, or damaged.

In a word, you should make sure the power cable is fine, the power port is clean and fine, and the power cable is correctly inserted into the power port.

Fix 3. Make Sure the Charger Is Compatible with Your PC

In general, the charger and cable included with your PC must be compatible with the PC. The incompatibility issue only occurs when you use a third-party charger.

If the third-party charger isn’t powerful enough to charge your PC, the third-party charging cable doesn’t meet the power requirements for the charger or PC, or the charger is connected to your PC through an external hub or dock, then, the laptop plugged in not charging issue may occur.
