    My dell laptop has had a few problems recently, including a bad boot BIOS (I think that was what the error said) that made me have to re-install Windows 10 entirely. A week or so later my laptop has now stopped charging. It runs fine when plugged into the wall, the battery % doesn't go down at all, but it refuses to charge. If I unplug and re-plug it in then it says it's charging for ~5 seconds, then goes back to 'plugged in, not charging'.

    Update: I turned my computer all the way off and removed the battery, and it seems to be charging again. I did already do this a number of times before posting this thread, but now that I've done it again it seems to have worked for now. It may randomly stop again, though, since every time I got it to charge before it stopped after a little bit.
