Laptop Charging but Status Not Showing

I am using a 5 years old HP laptop and using the not original HP battery. The problem has started last 2-3 months before when i replace the battery charger, right now the laptop is charging because i can see the light on my laptop beside the hdd light but the light is not showing in charging point and in windows status. You can check the screenshot below:

It is currently charging but not even showing in windows. I tried in different OS like 10, 8 but still the same problem.

Please let me know why this problem is happening all the time.

Hi Boosters,
Goto device manager,
Expand batteries,
Unistall the top 2
MS Adapter, MS ACPI.


go back to device manager,
They may have re-appeared, if not click on Action select scan hardware this will then re-apply them,
hopefully updated, but check for updates on them both anyway.
