"Plugged in, not charging" after upgrade to Windows 10 from 8.1

I have an ASUS X551MA laptop that I recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1. It charged just fine with Windows 8.1, but ever since it upgraded to Windows 10, whenever I plug it in, it shows the status "Plugged in, not charging". I've tried all the solutions I could find, but nothing worked. It does not have a removable battery and I cannot take apart the laptop. Is there any other way to fix this problem?

It is most likely not a problem. If the charging software finds that your laptop is plugged-in most of the time, it does not charge all the way to 100% because fully charging it supposedly reduces the life of the battery. You may find a setting to tell it to adjust anyway, but not sure exactly where on an ASUS driver. Most likely by right clicking the battery icon and exploring the submenus.
