I recently purchased an x230 and everything is perfect but the battery fit.  It moves up and down slightly.  I know there are many posts in the lenovo forums for all different models that the battery fits lose in "x" model and solutions of putting paper / foam / tape to make the battery fit tighter.   What I'm wondering is if anyone has actually had the problem fixed by lenovo.  I've read a few posts where a user has had the base piece of the case replaced (where the battery fit's into) and that has solved the problem.  I'm still within my return period on my x230 and am awaiting a call back from tech support to see if there is anything they will do but I don't think I will keep it if they can't fix it.   I'm just curious has anyone actually had luck by replacing the base piece.  From what i've read a replacement battery hasn't worked for anyone.  Also, I know everyone says its by design for thermal purposes but I haven't actually seen any official confirmation of this from lenovo.   Thanks.  

A:Battery Loose / Battery wiggle in x230 and LENOVO ...

As a follow up, I'm just curious if this is a widespread issue?  Anyone have loose battery in their x230 / x220?  I'm not talking about it falling out...but just a few millimeters of wiggle room.  Basically when i pick mine up or place it down, I can feel / hear the battery move.  I'm just trying to get an idea if this is a real problem or thats just how every thinkpad is.  I called support and they are sending someone to replace the base panel and we'll see if that fixes it.  I'll update this post when it get's replaced.   Edit* I also asked the lenovo support rep if they had heard of this issue and they said no, never.  I don't see how this is possible as if you do a google search for thinkpad loose battery there are many results.

My X230 powers down when I try to operate it with a battery connected.  I've tried replacing the battery, but it continues to power down even with the replacement.  I tried changing the power management settings to not shut down while plugged in if the battery gets critically low, but that didn't fix the problem either.  It doesn't shut down when I run it on just AC power without a battery plugged in.  This would be fine, but I need to run a BIOS update to fix a different issue I'm having, and I can't do that until I have a full battery connected that isn't going to cause it to shut down during the update.

Hallo, I have a problem with my 3 yo X230 where the battery is fast empty, only 20 minutes from full charging although I only open 1 program (Excel/word/etc.). Should I change the battery ? In lenovoquickpick.com, the battery seems for type X230T (Part number: 0A36317). Can it be used for X230 ? From the picture shown in web, it is different from the battery installed in my laptop (4 cells). Now I am in Germany and quit difficult to find Lenovo people who can speak English well. Thank you

My X230 with 6 cell 44+ battery was working good. Earlier this week, lenovo system update suggested a battery firmware update and I clicked and updated. After the update, the battery is completely dead. Don't understand how this can happen. Anybody has any ideas? This is the original battery and has been working good and still holds about 2 hours charges before its sudden death.

Dear, I found some strange issue with my Lenovo ThinkPad X230 on Windows 10. When i've attached the battery, I try to shutdown, hibernate and sleep the labtop but the laptop didnt shutdown or hibernate properly. The screen is turn off, the WIFI symbol still bright, the power button light still blink and the fan still spining. i need to force shutdown by pressing the power button for 10 sec to turn everything off. On the other hand, if i take the battery off, pluged the power cord, everything will work fine. I can shutdown, hibernate and sleep. I used Lenovo Service Bridge to scan and install the lastest version of every driver. I also flashed the BIOS to lastest version. Unfotunately, the problem still persists.

Hi, I'm new to the forums, and I tried searching my problem but I couldn't find anything so I decided to post to get some quick help. I had my x230 and never had problem with this for a long time.  Recently I decided to purchase a 9cell battery 44++.  Given the oppurtunity of being in singapore I went around to find a geniune lenovo 44++ battery for my x230. So I got this 44++ with fru 45n1029 put it on my laptop put the ac and boot the machine.  Then I went to the power manager and notice that it still says 45n1023  tried to reinstall my power manager but still says the same 45n1023. I wanted to know if there something wrong or how to I make power manager recognize my new battery?Is my battery geniune?  I'm attaching an image below of the new battery I hope someone can shed some light about my concern.  http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc158/sceptile_ray/Computer%20parts/20140623_203911.jpg and here is the information about the battery that power management shows:

Hi,The Power Manager settings as well as the battery parameters are stored in the registry. So if PM could be removed at all (!) those parameters should be reset. But I hope it's not a single solution.I'm not sure will it help or no, but you might perform the following steps:- PM menu (mouse right click on the battery icon), "Remove and Replace Battery" item,- battery reset.Also let me give you another advice: change the battery charge thresholds for its healthy and lifespan, do not charge it fully.

Hi, my x230 shuts down instantly when the battery is at 25-30% (around 10Wh).I tried performing battery gauge reset with no improvements, but I have the suspect that it doesn't run the full charge-discharge-charge cycle since it shuts down (I didn't attend the full cycle so I'm not sure).I had a wrong "full charge capacity" reading in power manager which I solved switching charge mode in Battery Maintenance from "always full charge" to "optimize for battery health".The battery firmware update tool is not suggesting an update, so I'm apparently out of options.  Thanks in advance for any help

Hi, 1. I have recently bought a 9-cells battery (1 week ago) for my thinkpad x230. I use windows 7 64-bit and I have installed Power Manager. 2. I have performed Battery Gauge reset. 3. The FRU number on the battery is "FRU P/N 45N1027". However, on Power Manager it says that is "FRU P/N 45N1029" and 7 cycle count. 4. Condition is Poor and the battery can store 65% of the its original full charge capacity according to Power Manager (56.58Wh out of 86.58Wh). 5. I tried to update battery firmware but I could not because it says that it  not need update. Question Q1. Is the Battery Genuine (You can check attached)?Q2. Is the battery damaged and need to return it back?Q3. Is there anything else I could do for this battery? Thanks all in advance.Nikolaos

I have my lenovo x230 laptop set to sleep when I close the lid. When I close the lid the "sleep" icon on the back of the screen lights up. But the batter will not last through the night on sleep mode. Within five hours or so, the battery is completely drained and I have to plug in and boot up the system. I've never seen such poor batter performance during sleep mode on any other laptop I've ever owned.  Another thread in this forum blames the USB port that allows you to charge mobile phones/etc. during low-power states and recommends disabling the "always power on" option fo this USB port in the Bios settings. I've done so, be it doesn't seem to have helped. At least my laptop still will not make it through the night in sleep mode.  At this point, it seems my ownly option is to use sleep mode only when the laptop is plugged in and hibernation mode when on batter power, which is disappointing. I've never had to worry about this in the past with other laptops.  Perhaps/probably related is the fact that the lenovo ThinkVantage Power Manager (v. 7.16) hangs at the splash screen when I try to open it, so I've been trying to manage the power through the windows control panel power settings.













Solved!

I bought a replacement battery for my Sony VAIO and whenI install it I get an obnoxious "Battery not compatible with...." window that opens and won't go away. Contacted the battery company and they gave me several things to do neither of which works. Anyone have a clue how to work around this with a VAIO running Windows XP? Theres got to be something I can turn off/unload to get around it. Trying to get around the $199 cost of an actual Sony battery. I see many battery manufacturers offering replacements for this model VGN-SZ120P. Certainly they can't all be bad..?
 

A:Replacement battery not compatible...?

SOLVED: For the record and future searches.... there is a SONY file running at startup called ISBMgr.exe. Apparently its only function is to monitor the battery and make sure you spent $200 on one of theirs. When you haven't it pops in and tells you. Once it was disabled through msconfig the battery works and charges just fine. I do see online that results of doing this vary on the newer Sony laptops. The battery will work but not charge. On older units such as mine, 2 year old VGN-SZ120p running XP, the fix works fine. I won't get into the should they should they not do that argument....

Is VGN-FZ190 your laptop model or the number from the battery? It is possible the new batt needs to charge for a few hours before first use as well. I don't know why a battery would have any compatibility issues with any OS. It is a simple power source.

Hello I have a Lenovo V510 laptop. The exact model is 80WQ00NLBMWhen I bought it the model was advertised with the possibility to add a second battery in the ultrabay.I searched for this battery with a P/N 4X50N82407, found an official supplier for my country and ordered it with a wait time, because it was not available in their storage.The battery arrived 2 months later. When I tried to install it, it became clear that my laptop does not have the required port for the battery and also the fixing screw is not in the right position at all.So I called the supplier and tried to return it. They said that it is not possible because I ordered with a specific P/N. Now I've paid for a battery that I even don't have, because I sent it to them, I can't use it at all.I tried to contact some support at Lenovo to ask why my laptop does not have this port which is advertised. But when I go to the support site and even type in the serial number of my laptop the only option is to come here - to the community support forum, but there is no option at all to contact some Lenovo representative with my problems and questions.What can I do in this situation ?

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!

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.

Hi guys. I have a T470 and after the latest Windows update I encountered a battery naming issue. Before the update batteries had proper order and were named accordingly: battery 1, battery 2, no surprises here. But after the update I noticed the order has changed to battery 0, battery 1 (attached pic below) Yeah yeah, I understand arrays start at zero but what is that? I was just wondering is it just me or you guys have the same situation going on with your batteries? Is there a way to change the order back to "normal"? .

I'm looking at purchasing a used X230 laptop from someone and trying to confirm the LCD panel it has.  The description is listed at 2325-DN3 and I can't find any info on that model in any of the reference books.  The Lenovo website shows it with IPS but indicates it's a generic listing. The buyer is a large website so sort of difficult to have them send me the serial #. Any ideas how I can confirm before making the purchase? Thanks!

Hi all.I have read around a bit and don't personally see any reason neither of these should work, but I've read some reports of people having issues with the Corsair not working and having to return it and the second pair not working. Then the HyperX for some reason mentions all the chips sets around the QM77 which is used in the X230 but not the QM77 itself, which again puts doubt in my mind. Can you confirm if either or both of these RAM kits (2x8GB) would be suitable?http://www.ebuyer.com/370065-corsair-16gb-ddr3-1600mhz-vengeance-laptop-memory-cmsx16gx3m2a1600c10http://www.ebuyer.com/646128-16gb-1600mhz-ddr3l-cl9-sodimm-kit-of-2-1-35v-hyperx-impact-black-hx316l...In case links get blocked because I'm a new user they were:Corsair 16GB DDR3 1600MHz Vengeance Laptop Memory{Kingston} 16GB 1600MHz DDR3L CL9 SODIMM (Kit of 2) 1.35V HyperX Impact Black

A:X230 RAM compatibility

Is the X230 actually using the QM77 or the HM77 chipset? Today I have seen websites claiming both. HM77 is listed as good for teh HyperX RAM whereas for some reason the QM77 isn't...

Hi all,I am considering buying this monitor: https://displaysolutions.samsung.com/business-monitor/detail/1287/C43J89 and wanted to use my work provided x230. I know I wont be able to have the max resolution of 3,840 x 1,200, however do you think i could use one of the docks (i.e. ThinkPad Mini Dock Plus Series 3) and use the Display ports to connect to two of the inputs (one USB-C up and one Display Port)? So effectively giving 2 x (1920 x 1200) ThanksDom
