This is a known problem when you connect Ipad to Windows computer or Laptop, it displaying “Not Charging” Message in status bar. Even it may happen in old Mac models.

Not charging
Does it not charging at all? No, really not. The reason why you receive this message is because the computer USB ports are not delivering enough power to charge the Ipad.  However it will be charging your device slowly if it is in sleep mode.

You can fix this problem by installing any third party software like Asus Ai Charger to boost the standard USB power output to charge Apple devices. The software claims that it does support all the motherboards and charge Apple devices 50% faster.

However the best charging solution is use the power adapter that comes with the device or high-power USB 2.0 port to charge it directly from the computer.
