Hi,
my battery is not charging even though the charger is plugged in. The green light is on but it still says "not charging" and remains at 90%. Have tried unplugging, rebooting etc but the issue remains?

While normally you'd see it at somewhere between 93-95% in this behavior read the following tech doc. Try running the battery down a bit, then connect the charger again (personally I'd calibrate the battery, second link)
