Windows 7: "Plugged In, Not Charging"

"Plugged In, Not Charging"

So, after this problem has begun to plague my fiancee for unknown reasons, the same has happened to me. I've searched high and low and have tried what I could, but nothing works and I, in fact, have no idea what may be the issue here. Everything in my laptop was working PERFECTLY until just now, where I find out the battery is not charging and I find the "plugged in, not charging" message from Windows 7. I'm at a loss, as I have no money to go out and unnecessarily buy a new charger or battery. I very recently got this ASUS, it can't be the hardware, can it?

Please and thank you for any assistance provided.

Problem with this is there are multiple solutions, heres one that i used to fix a laptop a while ago.

>Disconnect AC
>Shutdown
>Remove battery
>Connect AC
>Startup
>In Device Manager, Under the Batteries category, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listings, and select Uninstall (itís ok if you only have 1).
>Shutdown
>Disconnect AC
>Insert battery
>Connect AC
>Startup

See how that goes, you can find other methods to solve this problem here and here
