Hello There;

I bought MSI Cyborg 15 A12VF Notebook. The user manual which came with notebook said that I could charge my notbook with USB-C connection point instead of standart Power Adapter and Cable but when I tried to charge my notebook with 25W 5V 3.0A Adapter and USB-C cable (I am using this adapter and cable for charging my phone) I can't charge my notebook. How can I charge my notebook with USB-C connection?

you have misread the Manual it does not allow it to be Charged Via USB-C it allows you to charge a Phone or the Likes VIA its USB-C connector at 5V @ 3A when the Charger is connected not the other way

USB 3.2 Gen 1 Port (Type-C) (with DisplayPort function)
USB 3.2 Gen 1, the SuperSpeed USB, delivers the higher interface speeds for
connecting various devices, such as storage devices, hard drives, or video cameras,
and offers more advantages over high-speed data transferring.
The slim and sleek USB Type-C connector features reversible plug orientation and
cable direction and supports 5V/3A portable charging power when AC power is
connected. However, the maximum portable charging power limitation may up to
5V/1.5A while only battery DC power is connected. And it also supports scalable
performance to future-proof solution, including USB 3.x, DisplayPort, Audio

its the Opposite to what you thought.

Laptops that Allow charging VIA a USB-C state Type-C (USB / DP / Thunderbolt™ 4) with PD charging as PD Charging is Power Delivery Charging and you need a USB-C charger that can do 20V @ 5A (100W) to be able to do that if it supports it.
