X in battery icon has now gone and laptop says plugged in and charging but battery icon fills up 4 times and stops.

Also says 0% avaliable.

In that case :
1. Either your batter has gone dead - mostly this is the issue.
2. Your motherboard or the contacts that charge the battery are malfunctioning. - rare case.

If in warranty Samsung will repair / replace it for free. Else you will have to buy a new original battery from Samsung to confirm the issue.

Feel free to ask any question or concern you may have. I will be glad to help you.
