If it is connected properly, open Device Manager, expand Batteries, and uninstall Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery. Shut down & reboot. Windows will reinstall the missing driver once windows reloads. If this does not fix your problem, how old is this laptop/battery? The life of a laptop battery is 3-4 years at best if used regularly.
