I have an ASUS laptop and my battery although at 52% and charging it's not actually charging and if I unplug the power cord it will shut down.

The problem cant be software related since even in linux or windows it's the exact same situation.

Also the battery is pretty new (under 1 year) and should not die yet. I've also used a program to check the wear level and it's at 8-9%. But I'm haven't really been using it to much except for moving the laptop around since it lasts for only about 1 hour since this is a gaming laptop. So just some very short usages from time to time.

Can someone give me a solution to save my battery?

if its under a year, it should be under warranty. Why not take advantage of it? – Journeyman Geek Nov 11 '13 at 0:06
Sounds battery related, perhaps a bad battery, perhaps a connection... – AthomSfere Nov 11 '13 at 0:11
but this is the second time it's happening and I dont want to repeat it (the last battery got burned from overcharging). So I need a fix for each time it happens – Guestul Nov 11 '13 at 0:11
