plugged in, not charging

good day, new member here, i have a lenovo ideapad, i have read some of the threads under "plugged in, not charging" with the solutions on the device manager control method battery uninstall and install. but here is my scenario, my laptop is 4 years old, everything was working just fine, my laptop was unplugged and im working with it running on battery power, when it suddenly turned off (the battery was not drained it was 95%), it did not re start until i plugged it and it was running plugged to the AC charger, but now it wont charge, if you un plug it, the laptop turns off as well even if it still had some battery percentage left, it is now a compact desktop, can somebody help?

Most likely you need a new battery.

Four years is a pretty good life span for laptop batteries, and when they go they do not always give warning. Sometimes it is "blink", just like a light bulb.

One thing to check is that the battery is fully seated and clicked in, and that the contacts are clean and not obstructed by dust.

Other than some change you made to settings or hardware, if everything was status quo and it just stopped working then it is probably no more complicated than that.
