A few weeks ago the laptop stopped charging. If you remove the power cord and plug it back in, it will occasionally charge for 1-2% and then stop charging again.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" as most threads on the interwebs say this is the solution. But that has not worked for me.

Other threads suggested a more complicated procedure with reinstalling that driver, but you need to remove the battery, and this laptop has a built in battery.

The 1 year warranty is up in a few days, I just wonder if anyone has any ideas before I go and fight with the store to get them to fix it.
Thanks!

If the warranty is up in a few days, I wouldn't dally here waiting for an answer. I suggest backing up all your data, taking it to the store, and then ensure they repair/replace it under said warranty.
