Two years old notebook --
I'm plugged in ....The screen dims- I re-plug into a different outlet at wall ( can even be the same recepticle just the second outlet )
Screen brightens ( icon shows charging )
after a few minutes icon not showing as charging but says Plugged In
Shortly thereafter it simply gives the batter life ( right now says 50%)

I plug in and out again at wall ( plugging in and out at the DC port has no affect - has to be at the wall )
same cycle

So far I re-installed the battery driver

I have ordered a new battery, but am wondering if that is not the problem ...

Does this sound like a power block issue ?

I doubt it is the battery. I suspect it is either the power block or an internal power supply issue (inside the laptop). Is this new behavior or had is been happening for a while? Does the battery charge when the computer is turned off? If there is a power LED on the laptop that lights when the block is plugged in, does it stay on?

After a week like this it seems to be acting normally -- go figure ---thanks for your reply though --if it starts happening again I'll re-start the query / but it definitely seems like something and not the battery /
