Notebook battery would not charge

Windows 10 just told me that my notebook battery cannot be charged.

Here is a solution which worked out fine for me:

  1. Shut down your notebook.
  2. Unplug the power supply.
  3. Remove the battery.
  4. Press the notebook’s ON/OFF button for 10 to 20 seconds.
  5. Insert the battery and the power supply again.
  6. Turn on your notebook.
  7. Done – the battery should be charged again.
