Question battery charging/not charging

Aug 24, 2019
hi guys ive had a recent problem where i put my charge rin the laptop and every 2 seconds it says charging/not charging...charging..not charging..
this can go on for an hour while the battery slowly drains..only once ive managed to see it go down to 1% and it miraculously starts charging properly.....
its gonna come to a point where it will drain completely & wont be useable

update: tried it again last night but what i did was because i wrap the wire around the plug

when i unravel it it in little hoops and twisted so i tried to straighten them out as much as possible..
then plugged it into a 4 plug extension which i normally do but chose a different socket..

managed to charge the whole laptop whch i aint been able to do for 2 weeks.... but im not sure if its a dodgy socket or the wire unwravelled
