T450 battery #1

Q: T450 battery #1

Hello, I have a very lightly used T450 laptop and the internal battery #1 is not being recognized by the laptop. I have read in other forums on other devices that the connection might be loose. It is under warranty but I have no Lenovo service center near me. How difficult is it to access battery #1 inside the laptop to check on the connections? Is there a detailed diagram / instructions someone can point me to? If I do this, will it invalidate my warranty (I have nearly two years left). Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

here's the manual:

https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/t450s_hmm_en_sp40g54937_01.pdf

There is no way the battery can become disconnected by itself. The connection is very secure. If you remove the bottom cover, the internal battery is obvious and easy to access. You won't affect the warranty unless you break something taking it apart or removing parts

I have a ThinkPad T450 with a built-in and external batteries.  Is there a setting in the BIOS or in the Lenovo suite of software where one could set how the batteries behave when they're being used? I'd like for the external battery to drain first so that I could then switch it for a different one before using the internal one.  It's always easier to replace the external battery vs. having to remove the bottom case entirely to access the internal one.

Hi all, I recently acquired a very-nearly-new Thinkpad T450 (i5 5300, 8GB) but I have found that under Windows 10 power options it shows the removable battery at 100% (after charging) but the internal battery is "not available for use". I have checked the BIOS for options to activate it without success.

Hello, I am getting a refurbished T450 tomorrow however it has not had a new battery put in it. If I find it needs a new battery (any size) does anyone know the battery part number or maybe have a link to where I can buy one? Thanks

Hello and welcome,
 
I can at least get you started with part numbers.  The T450 can have an optional internal battery plus one of 3 different sizes of external battery.

It is just like my Thinkpad T450 can't see more than one battery. If I click the battery icon I can see that battery 1 is 100 % and full charged but it is like it is battery 2 which is used and when it is below 20 % warning pops up. Battery 1 is still at 100 %. Lenovos test program find both batteries ok and the cycle count for the main battery is 129 and the secondary battery is 400. I am not quite sure which battery is the main battery. Have others experienced this? Using T450 and Windows 10 with latest updates. Peter

Hello,After shutting down with my battery around <12% when I next tried to boot my power button flashed 3 times and the laptop failed to power up.  I reset the CMOS and my laptop worked again. However, when ever I shutdown or suspended the laptop the power would reboot and the machine would turn back on by itself a couple of seconds later. I have now updated the BIOS but this did not help, nor did turning off wake up from LAN. I once removed the battery but this resulted in my original issue and I had to reset the CMOS again. Now aftering disabling the battery in BIOS, I am again unable to boot even after plugging in the power cable. This time resetting CMOS has not worked in getting my laptop to boot. Now I am also seeing the keyboard lights for fn, mute and mute mic all lit up even when the battery is removed and the power cable is unplugged.  Can I get it to boot again, given the CMOS trick no longer works? Thank You

I recently bought a new T450 which originally had Windows 7 installed. After getting it I upgraded to Windows 10. I've noticed that the battery charges correctly when it's mostly charged, but if I am not plugged in and both batteries (internal + external) get low, then I plug the machine it, the battery won't charge. The system tray will say "Plugged in, not charging" and the power light will constantly blink (sometimes consistent rapid blinks, sometimes long-short blinks). I bought a second external battery with the machine. When I'm in this state, if I swap to the fresh battery the computer will instantly start charging correctly. If I leave the machine charging for a while (15-30 min) then swap in the depleted battery, it will now start charging correctly. It seems as though if I didn't have the second battery I might in a really bad spot. FWIW I've tried installing "Lenovo Power Management Driver for Windows 10" and the "Lenovo Settings" app for Windows 10 that has controls for the battery. Does anyone have an idea of what is going on here? Should I downgrade back to Windows 7? Thanks in advance.

After my friend's laptop wouldn't run on battery power OR charge the battery I tried many "fixes."
 
Shockingly none worked that I found.
 
Only one thing worked for me to my surprise.
 
A last ditch effort was to open up the laptop (sony pcg-81114L) and disconnect the cmos battery for a few minutes to reset the CMOS.
 
To my surprise, when powered on, the battery instantly showed it was charging AND when removing the power plug the battery POWERS the laptop now! (and I'd thought I was wasting my time.)
 
Worked with an off brand battery also.
 
Many times this has saved many computers that have odd "unsolvable" things wrong with them.
 
Surely someone else has done this also but I haven't seen it posted anywhere to my knowledge.
 
Thank GOD for bringing the idea to remembrance!

Currently I have x230, but need to invest in a new battery for it (some £40 for a genuine one) so not sure If I want to do that since I have had this laptop for a long time now and I'm kinda looking for a larger screen as well and extra battery run-time you get with the new series wouldn't be too bad either.I have been waiting for a moment when the t450 drops in price and you can get one for around £300 now which still has got some 2+years warranty, and I can sell my x230 for some £200 probably. so sounds like a good very cheap upgrade...however...I watched some video today where the guy had opened up a t450 and did and ssd/ram upgrade and It finally hit me- That laptop looks like some cheap chinese pokemon toy compared to x230 or t430 which I also have + it hasn't got the thinklight anymore and generally the t450 looked just very cheaply made.. I get it that it's slimmer and smaller but it just looked sooo cheaply made in the videos I saw So I'm not too sure anymore if I want to even get the t450 because it looked like a cheap pokemon toy compared to x230/t430 I have What about the t460 does it got better/more solid build quality than the t450 or they are about the same? I'm not looking at the t440 because I see the internet is full about reports about how bad they are.. Probably next year this time the t460 would cost some £300 as well if a new model gets released so I might as well wait for it to drop in price if I get something way better in build quality over the t45...

We have ~60 Thinkpad T450's deployed, periodotically some of them do this weird thing when the users try to wake them up, the volume mute, microphone mute and FN key are all lit, but the screen is off. No matter what we do, we cannot power the machine on/off (not sure of it's state, even holding the button for prolonged periods does nothing). The only solution I have found is to unscrew the back cover and pull the secondary battery, which isn't practicle, espically if a user is traveling. When the laptop comes back on, there is no error in event viewer. Not too sure what's going on?

Hello everyone! Not sure if this is an issue but it's surely annoying to know, that battery N1 drains at 5% and the other stays at 100%. Is it possible for a mixed discharge between both batteries ?After all the LIFE of the first battery (while using battery only power) is shortened a lot! Is there any option in LENOVO VANTIGE that I am no aware of ?I looked everywhere and i can't find anything.. Bios latest update 1.30 Thank you very much!

A:T470s BATTERY 1 drains to 5%, BATTERY 2 stays at 100% (BATTERY PRIORITY)

Sorry  but see below post.  Basically you cant set discharge order.  The laptop checks battery wear and bases discharge order on that.  Many people including myself have asked for a BIOS switch or at least an option on discharge order but nothing has happened so far and I dont think its going to happen either.  I do not speak for Lenovo..

Hey, I really need help. I'm having problems with my laptop. It's a dell inspiron 7559 and was bought around January. Recently I have seen that the battery has no longer been as hot as it used to be when I first started using it. Along with the sleeve on the tip of the screen power adapter (below the part where the adapter lights up) has started to come off, exposing the wires. The battery has continually dropped down its percentage rate ever since I bought it, and it won't go back up. It is currently at 0% battery life and it says when you highlight over the battery icon ( plugged in, not charging). It also happens to show the BIO setup when I start the computer and shows that the batteries wattage and type cannot be determined. In the BIOS setup, the ac adapter type is unknown. The battery has not been through any harsh conditions along with the laptop. I have tried removing the battery, starting up the computer with the ac adapter (which is 130 watts), then adding the battery back, and ac adapter, then turning it on, but it had no effects. If I remove my ac adapter while my computer is on ,it instantly turns off. If someone can support me with this issue, it would be gladly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Laptop battery not charging, battery not identified, 0% battery life

It sounds likely the charge circuit on the mainboard is damaged.  Contact Dell to have the mainboard replaced under warranty.

Looking at a laptop for personal use but not sure what to get between T550 and T450....to replace my X220 Just wanted to get information on M2 SSD compatibiltiy for these laptop... I am guessing they both should be compatible with 2240 M2 SSD but just wanted to confirm to make sure that I can have 2 HDD Currently on my X220 I have mPCI SSD to boot OS and using 2.5" SSD for data storage and wanted to do the same on one of these... also if anyone want to put some input comparing T450 or T550 that would be great.... Still tossing between these 2 laptop, T450 or T550, T550 still seems to be still portable but never had 15" laptop so not sure how massive that would be.... Current work laptop is T440 so I should get used to T450 more so then T550.... i might get good use of extra screen estate...... Thanks for your input.

A:T450 & T550 M2 SSD Compatibility

Officially Lenovo does not support M.2 SSD as a boot device.  M.2 SSD is only supported as a cache device, and then, only when it is configured that way as an option from Lenovo factory.  This is the official Lenovo support position.
 
I can tell you about my personal experience.  I have T550 and I ordered an aftermarket 256GB Transcend M.2 SSD to put in it.  There was no problem for BIOS to detect it, and I could easily install Win7 on it.  As long as I was actively using the system, there was no problem.  But whenever I left the system idle it would eventually BSOD with code F4, usually after 30-45 minutes.  My conclusion is that there must be some incompatibility between this SSD and T550.  There was not any firmware update on transcend's website that I could find, and I'm using the latest T550 BIOS already.  So I really have no idea what the problem could be.
 
Now I'm using the T550 with a single 2.5" 512GB samsung SSD and it is rock-solid reliable.  So definitely, my problem had something to do with the Transcend M.2 SSD.

Hi, I noticed recently that my touchscreen on my T450 is not working.Also on my computer properties it's says that there is no Pen/Touch input available. Sometimes it appears and still doesn't work and most of the time does not appear. Is there some kind of diagnostic or procedure to check if it's hardware or software related problem?

A:T450 TouchScreen Problem

It is hard to diagnose without seeing it.  Do you have a warranty?  If you do, call support.  When the touch screen isn't visible, do the other USB devices still work?  (Touch digitizer connects as a USB device.)  I don't know what devices use the same USB hub controller, but if other USB devices are also "missing", I would guess the problem is a controller chip on the motherboard.  (USB devices include touchpad, keyboard, USB ports, camera, bluetooth, microphone)  Otherwise, my best guess is the digitizer itself.

Hi everybodyI am having some random issues with the wifi on my Lenovo T450.  It sometimes goes really slow or completely drops off connection while other devices on the same network keep working fine. This happens on both windows (where I have installed the latest drivers) and Linux (same, althought they are still quite old as far as I can see). In Linux it seems that rebooting fix the problem almost every time (while trying to reset the wifi only by "service network-manager restart/reload/force-reload" does not), but for windows sometimes it isn't enough (indeed in past months I'm using mainly linux also for this issue).  I'm fearing it is a hardware problem, but does anybody has alternative ideas?  thanks!

Hi, I want to ask if someone knows how I can open the "Dell Dimension XPS T450". Thanks,Lolletje:smileyvery-happy:

A:Open Dimension XPS T450

You unscrew the thumbscrew on the back--not all the way--just until it is loose. Then you press the top and bottom back edge and slide the panel back. Your manual explains with pictures. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dkub/  Look under Removing and Replacing. Make sure you detach all cords and power and then press the power button to release any leftover charge before you open the case. Then ground yourself before touching anything inside the computer. Look at Safety Precautions in the manual.Message Edited by Mary G on 08-17-200612:31 PM

downgrade t450 to windows 7I bought a T450 laptop sometime back which came with Windows 7 preloaded but I was given the option to update to windows 10 afterwards. I did update to windows 10 but I had horrible issues of 100% HDD utilization. I tried all methods avaliable on the internet from disabling services to increasing page files but none of them work and still HDD is 100% active time. Looks like an issue with windows 10 and microsoft is not accepting it for some reason, you will see a bunch of internet threads related to the issueNow I want to down grade to windows 7 as it came pre loaded. I can see a recovery partition of 19.5gb where 8.66gb and there are hidden files inside.I tried to boot the setup using F11 recovery mode and tried the backup from advance options, it says unable to find back file, backup failed.my question is how do I recover using the files avaliable in 19.5gb setup file.

I have an issue with the miniDP connection. I use it for an external monitor via miniDP to HDMI connector. It was working fine until I moved my laptop last weekend. Now the laptop does not detect that it even has a DP. Only VGA output is available.I have updated everything from the Lenovo support center and tired re-instaling video drivers. No changes so far. Any ideas?the graphics card is Intel HD5500. Running Windows 7.
