What causes a Lenovo x140e laptop with Windows 10 Education installed to not charge at times?

I have an X140e Lenovo that is having a problem charging.  Charging for this laptop is sporadic.  In looking at the Device Manager, the d is listed as "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" and the  other reference is "Microsoft AC Adapter".  The date on the driver is 2006,  Is there a newer driver for this or would uninstalling and reinstalling these devices possibly fix this?

Also that is not a new machine, so the battery may need replacement (battery life is 3 years sometimes 4 years)

As noted, battery or adapter might cause this too.

Take the battery out (machine OFF), plug in the adapter and start the computer. Lightly wiggle the plug. Any issue?  It will be apparent if there is.

Otherwise likely the battery.
