Lenovo G560 battery charges but laptop won't run on it

Q: Lenovo G560 battery charges but laptop won't run on it

Long story short - I spilt water over my laptop keyboard and uplugged both AC cable and battery. 3 to 4 days later i plugged it in again, placed the battery and it was charging and running on it without any problem for 2 hours. Then i decided that it's just fine so I plugged the AC cable and I haven't used it on battery for 20-30 days. Well, today I unplugged the AC cable and my laptop turned off.
I downloaded a diagnostic tool called BatteryMon and it says:
(Since I'm unable to post images which is sad - please copy and paste it into your browser adress tab)

So, can anyone please tell me what does it really mean ? I can see that it says it's 120% charged which is overcharging, isn't it ? I'm not really into electrics, so please help me - how am I supposed to get my laptop battery working if it isn't dead ?

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.)

A: Lenovo G560 battery charges but laptop won't run on it

The battery contacts could be corroded by the spilled water. It takes time for this corrosion to develop so that's why the time that the laptop worked. The water could have affected other internal circuits too over time. The laptop needs to be opened up and inspected

Ever since yesterday I've had this problem, I tried several solutions and none of them worked. Basically the problem is: The laptop only works on battery now. When the battery is at 0% the laptop turns off even if the AC is plugged in. To make matters worse, when the laptop is on I get this message "plugged, not charging". So basically the AC no longer works by itself and only charges the battery when the laptop is off. Here is what I tried so far:- Changing the settings on the Lenovo Energy Mangement tool- Uninstalling the Lenovo Energy Mangement tool - Taking off the battery and AC, pushing the power button for 30 seconds, putting them back in and turning on the laptop.- Starting the laptop on safe mode- Praying to God None of these things worked. Somebody help.

Hi I own a Lenovo G560 with an Intel Pentium CPU. I upgraded to Windows 10, and it worked fine for about a year. After I deleted a few viruses and a few garbage programs off the machine, the battery refused to charge past 87%. I have heard to check Lenovo Power Manager, but there is no such software on the system. Is there any other solution I could try?

I've an Inspiron 15 7560, it's just just 3 months old. The design capacity of the battery in this thing is 41,998 mWh but windows batteryreport and hwmonitor are showing a full charge capacity of 39,079 mWh. That's 7% less. But the strange thing is that batteryreport as well as hwmonitor show a charge level of 107% when the laptop is full charged. And that's not on one occasion, every full charge is shown as 107%.. The thing that's even more strange is that according to battery capacity history of powercfg batteryreport that drop in capacity happened just around the time I changed the battery charge setting from "Adaptive" to "Primarily AC Use" in Dell Power Manager Lite. What's happening here?

A:7% battery wear on new laptop but battery charges up to 107% according to batteryreport

The lowering of the threshold is what is intended.
This link will give you more information on the charge options.

For your specific case  
"Primarily AC — Extends battery life by lowering the charge threshold, so that the battery never charges to 100 percent capacity. Recommended for users who primarily operate the system while plugged into an external power source."

Hi, I have 2 of these laptops and one has a battery problem. In Win10 it shows that it can only charge to 93%. I can leave it for few hours and it will still only say 93%. If I take power brick from the other (that can charge to 100%) charging stops at 94%. The light indicator is white when on 93% but the % in windows indicator is bothering (not to me, but to the user). I think that there is a problem in Win10 indicator (since light indicator lights white), but even formating (and converting from Legacy to EFI) didn't solved the problem. Is there a problem with battery? EDIT: At what % does LED turns from orange to white? I checked indicator for white LED when laptop was turned off and charging. So I can't confirm if it charged to 100% and if it charges to 100% when turned on.

 I purchased the Lenovo IdeaPad 100 in May 2016.  I am on my laptop every day for school and work related, and I tend to put my laptop to sleep instead of turning off most of the time.The battery drains fast; lasts at least an hour or less without an ac adapter.  When I charged my laptop with the ac adapter it takes at least 2 hours, 3 hours at most, for it to charge which I think it's not normal. I can't remove the battery from the laptop because I don't want to cause any damage. I do have a warranty for it, yet I like to know any solutions for me to fix this issue.

Hi all, My laptop is new, i've had it for just about a month now. There's usually an orange charging light on the side of the laptop that illuminates when the charger is plugged in. However recently, whenever my laptop is on and i try to charge it, the orange light illuminates for a matter of seconds and comes up with the message "plugged in but not charging" and then the light just turns white and the laptop continually runs as if nothing is plugged in. However, when the laptop is turned off, the orange light will iluminate and will  charge to 100%. The charger is completely fine as it appears to charge the laptop when it is off. I have even purchased a new charger and that has made no difference. It appears as though it's some type of settings problem, but i have checked settings and nothing seems to be different. Any help would be appreciated, as i'd hate to have to keep switching of my laptop just so that it will charge.

I had to fix a friends laptop today from the phone because she lives in another city. She has Windows7 and apparently the machine was freezing quite often. Checking her config.sys to find out what was loading at start up I found she had 8 entries with the manufacturer marked as "Unknown". Told her to remove the check mark from them and re boot and it became worst.

Searching on the web I found how to re install Windows7 on a Lenovo G560 from the D:\ drive and we went through the process and all looks fine so far.

But now she has an icon in the taskbar which says "Drive D: has not enough space" and checking the drive I found that out of 30GB space there is only 3MB free space. All files on that drive looks like they are Windows files and she has no private files in there.

Anyone knows why this icon appeared and what I have to do to fix it?

I have a HP stream x360, and it is having battery problems. First of all, it drains even when I shut it down completely. I shut it down with approximately 90% battery and about a day later it wont turn on. So I go to charge it, which leads to my second problem. It charges insanely slow. It has been plugged in for 12 hours, and when I press power, the button lights up for 5 seconds and then turns off. It isn't a kink in the wire because I store it properly, and it is unravelled when charging. It isn't the outlet because ai have moved 3 times, which means totally different outlets, but all with the same charge speed; SLOW. Finally, it is actually fully plugged into the computer because the little red light IS on, indicating it is charging. So what do I do? What is wrong? I can't take out a battery because it is internal. And currently, I cannot do anything with the computer because it is still dead, and it has a habit of taking 2 days to charge. About. Please help. I got it about 9 months ago. It isn't even a year old.

Hi guys, I have a problem with my laptop battery. It refuses to charge unless it's completely drained to 0%. It has no problem charging back up to 100% afterwards, but it just won't charge if it's anything above 0% even if the laptop is turned off, which has me baffled. I've searched for this problem but all I've found are instances where the battery WON'T charge after a complete drain, which is like the opposite of my problem...

Battery Issue - Lenovo V570 (Laptop) - Battery Model L09S6Y02

First off I for the most part do not use the battery. It is normally detached from the laptop. I only attach it to periodically charge it and test prior existing charges' performance.

O.K. here is the problem. I attach battery attachment, computer does not make it to the window screen more often than not. When it does, it freezes at the please wait loading screen.

I rarely use the battery at all, but I want all my equipment up and functional. It's life should still be good for I periodically recharge it. I think since I've had the laptop I've only recharged it a total of 6 or 7 times and that's been a year or so.

I, for the moment at least have the battery working power adapter attached. What did I do? I uninstalled Avast (freeware version) ?

I learned from prior experience that running two of any system utility software can cause problems, but it normally restricts itself to what it is protecting. Then I remembered: "If you remove the possible whatever is left however in probable must be the truth."

Next phase of testing is test the battery on it's own.

Hi All,

After trying everything I decided to come here and post.

I have a Lenovo G560 Laptop. Usually I put my machine in Hibernation mode. Because Whenever I turn it of it take multiple power offs to restart and working normal

In Hibernation I boots in seconds. So my machine go the windows 7 update I rebooted the system this time It never came up.
When ahead with last option FORMAT.

My system booted now it was like dead slow and I was totally annoyed. After that I thought it my the processor which might over heat open the back panel cleaned it up good. Well again it was same. I opened it again however after this it didn't even boot
Not even the bios screen screen didn't power on.

Other than that I also noticed that now the HDD LED was not blinking was off.

Fine I did some internal hardware check no good.

I have a SATA to USB converter I connected the Laptop Hard disk via the SATA to USB to my other MSI (LOVE IT) laptop
So when I power it on my MSI detects the System drive which I believe holds the MBR and later my MSI too get hungs as soon as I power off the HDD my MSI works fine...
I suspect issue with my HDD of G560 I have lots of data on it I need to recover any solution ?

Test the Lenovo's hard drive with the drive manufacturer's DOS version diagnostic software which is an ISO cd-image file from which you can make a bootable CD with IMGBurn (see below for links). Boot your Lenovo from that CD and the testing tool will automatically open. Select the drive and run a "long test' if that's available.

Hello everybody,my problem: Lenovo Y700 15 ISK with Windows 10 x64 charges the battery only to 95%. The bar at the bottom always shows "95% plugged in, charging?. I have no battery settings (maintenance mode etc.) activated, especially because I have no software to do so. As far as I know there is no such settings in Windows 10. I just bought it. Have immediately (without looking whether it loads to 95%) formatted the SSD and Installed Windows 10 and Drivers from http://support.lenovo.com/de/de/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-y-series-laptops/y700-15isk?qu...I installed only the Drivers and Lenovo Utility + Lenovo System Interface Foundation (which have no interface). I also tried to install Lenovo Companion and Lenovo settings and change battery settings such as conservation mode, etc. While it change the indicator from "charging" to "not charging" and back it still does not move over 95%. Does anyone have any advice for me?

My Dell XPS battery charges only to 99%. Technical support said this is a "normal" occurrence if you have "adaptive" charging on in the BIOS. They asked me to update the BIOS and then change it to "custom" charging. The battery now charges to 100%.
Is this normal behaviour or just a messy "fix"? I just want to confirm if this is a papered over fault, because I suspect that it is. Personally I am not too pleased with having to call Dell technical support on the day I opened my new laptop!

hi Preben,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you're running on Win7 on the G560, can you try these steps:
 
1. Open a command prompt as administrator and type:
  diskpart
  list disk
  sel disk 1 (where disk 1 is the primary drive)
  list part
  sel part 4 (where partition 4 is the hidden recovery partition)
  set id=12
  exit
 
 - Sample image
 
2. After exiting diskpart, try running OneKey Recovery again and observe.
 
In addition, try also creating a recovery disc (see this article) as an alternative way on restoring the machine to factory settings.
 
 
Let me know if this works for you.

I have a HP amd a8 laptop - approximately 15 months old. Over the past 3 months I have noticed that it is not charging when plugged in. I used to be able to fully charge it, unplug it and work for 2 hours plus before having to recharge it. I would then plug it back in to top up the power. 3 months ago I noticed when I was doing this it was no longer topping up the power. In fact, the red light (which normally stays on when charging) would only flash once - and then go white and stay white; draining  the remaining power very quickly. I have tried other charges but to no avail. The laptop battery will charge when the laptop is off (lid closed) and in sleep mode. The battery port does feel a little loose but I don't think this is the problem as when I take the battery out and plug the main power in the laptop will power up. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Clary

The posts you read are correct,
Most OEM have a list of pre-configured supported hardware and is locked in the BIOS
as per your System Maintenance Manual here are what's should work

 
Flashing the BIOS is not recommended as any wrong move may brick the system and void the warranty also rendering the system not working.

I am a proud owner of a Lenovo G560 laptop that I have upgraded to Windows 10 64 bit. After upgrading I was unable to use the fn + f5 options on my laptop and even trying to turn it on by settings, it still does not allow me too. I have switched it on by the small switch in front of the laptop and still not going on.

Hey Guys, I purchased hp au006tx 2 months ago. There has been this issue with the battery. Everytime I put the laptop on charging, the battery goes staright to 99 % in like 40 minutes or less and then its stuck there. I kept it on charge for like straight 3-4 hours, nothing changed . The battery check tool from HP shows status as good but it shows the full charge capacity as 99% . Why ? Should I get my battery replaced by HP. I have it under warranty?  Any help would be appreciated.

Whenever I have my laptop turned on and plugged into the mains now, it'll give a message saying (plugged in, not charging) after the power percentage and stay at that level without charging up. But it'll charge when I have my computer off!
 
It will run off the battery and charge when the computer is off so it's not the battery itself. And it'll boot up and run if I have the AC adapter plugged in with the battery removed, so it's not that either. How do I fix this?
 
I looked all over the web for a solution to this but nothing I found worked at all so I had to come here.

A:Battery "plugged in, not charging", only charges when off.

Sorry to hear about the problems with the power.Many times when there are issues with the battery or power to the notebook, it will be one of three things: the power supply, the system board, or the battery. You might want to take a look at this document that has instructions to troubleshoot each of these.  If you follow these instructions, you might find the problem, or at least you will be eliminating them as being the issue.  But I think maybe you'll find the answer in this document, Battery Does not Power the Notebook or Hold a Charge, Thanks,

Just purchased Envy M6-W103DX. The battery charges when the unit is off or asleep, but it shows "plugged in, not charging" when in use. Performed battery test with HP Assistant, and it says the battery is okay. Why is the battery not charging during use? I have not had a laptop ever do this.

As and IT Professional I realize that the more information that I provide the easyier to dignose the issue.  So here is the issue and what I have already done to resolve the problem. LAPTOP IS An HP Paviliion g7 Notebook product number B5Z52UAR#ABA. OS - Windows 10 - 64 bit.  My Laptop stopped showing charging even though I have it plugged in.  I thought at first it was the charger but now realize it is something else.  Here is what I have done. I ran the HP Diagnostics on the battery and the diagnostics shows the battery is good.  What is strange is when the diagnostics is running the battery icon starts showing charging and when I hover the mouse pointer over the icon it says plugged in an charging.  But as soon as the diagnostics finishes the icon stops showing charging and when I over over it the battery shows plugged in and not charging.  If I continue to run the diagnostics the battery charges a little more each time. I have performed a routine suggested on a website where I unplug the power cable, power down the laptop, remove the battery, plug the laptop back in, and start the computer.  Then go to Divice Mangaer and Uninstall the Microsoft ACPI-Complient Control Method Battery, power down the laptop, unplug the laptop, re-install the battery, and plug the laptop back in.  Then when I load the OS the Microsoft ACPI-Complient Control Method Battery reinstalls.  When I do this the battery icon sh...

I am running One Key Optimizer and have a red dot on the battery level, which I thought meant that my computer needed to be optimized. (It did, to be honest.) However, after I did the Checkup, nothing showed up as wrong, but then when I went into the Battery area, it showed that the battery should be calibrated, which I tried starting. It started, but it only charged my battery up, and not discharged it to recharge it. I have it currently on high performance setting to help drain the battery, and I have it unplugged to try and discharge the battery. I know it has to be plugged in, not allowed to sleep, or not to power down the PC, but if it won't discharge, then what's the sense of a calibration? What is wrong?
