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.)

I've got an old G40-70 running Windows 10. I think the power area was damaged and now when the laptop is plugged in, it says "plugged in not charging" and the power slowly drains away. Then when the laptop is turned off, it will charge back up to 100%. Then when I turn the laptop on, it will say "plugged in, not charging" and the power will drain out. I've tried taking the battery out but the laptop won't start (when plugged in). I've bought a new power adapter/charger so I think its something to do with the laptop. If I bought a new power jack, would it need to be soldered in? Thanks.

I have been using my lenovo Y50-70 since the past 1 year to play games like witcher 3 and Fallout 4. Recently, when I started playing Metal Gear Solid 5 and Battlefield 1, I have been facing some issues with the battery. I usually keep the charger plugged in while gaming, Since the laptop needs to be plugged in for better performance.  But recently, my laptop automatically stops charging randomly in between eventhough it is connected and the power button and the charging led start blinking.  As soon as i unplug the charger and put it back on, it starts charging again. But after sometime again stops charging and lights start blinking. I've noticed that this happens faster when I'm playing a game vs. when I'm doing something else. I'm scared about the damage it would do to the battery. Please suggest something. Thank you !

My Lenovo G700, which is a week old, is saying that it is "plugged in, not charging". It was working fine until last night when I closed the lid to put it into sleep mode for the first time. I have checked that it is set to maximum battery life and it is still not working. It's stuck on 98%. I am severely disappointed that something like this has happened a week into having my first Lenovo. I hope someone can help me rectify this problem.

A:Lenovo G700 Plugged In Not Charging

hi Zadeth,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try to:
1. Turn off the machine and remove the AC adapter and battery
2. Hold the power button for 10secs then plug the AC adapter back in.
3. Turn the computer ON and when it gets to Windows, slide the battery back in place and observe the charge.
 
Alternatively, try to use the battery charge until it asks you to plug the AC adapter and observe if the charge goes all the way to 100%.
 
Let me know your findings
 
 
Regards

My Lenovo Thinkpad is not charging the battery and shows a "plugged in, not charging" message. I have a pending Bios update that won't update since the batteries are not charged.  Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this? Is there a way to update the Bios with just power plugged in?     

A:Lenovo Thinkpad with "plugged in, not charging"

What charging threshold do you have set in either Lenovo companion or Lenovo Vantage app?  For me I have it set at 70% and 80%.  In other words my battery wont charge until it falls below 70% and it will stop at 80%.  So if its at 75% for example it will show "plugged in, not charging"

My Lenovo T470 Laptop is one month old. Yesterday, I was traveling and plugged it into a wall adapter on a train. I used the charger that was shipped with the laptop. I was given an error message stating that this power adapter was not powerful enough, and to please use the charger that was shipped with the laptop. Now, any time I plug in, I am told that I am plugged in but not charging. When I returned from traveling, I connected the laptop to my dock, which charged at first, but now won't charge. I've updated the system, installed Lenovo Vantage, restarted several times, and tried it in a variety of outlets.  Anyone have any input?

Hi,
 
I know you have a T470 BUT please check the below article.  I also know you were on a train.  However if you turned on "airplane" mode or the system "auto" detected airplane mode the system may not provide enough power to charge laptop and power dock.  So check in Vantage if you have airplane mode on.

Hi acejavier10 , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Initially , in such issue first to try is remove microsoft acpi-compliant control method battery .
 
Try uninstalling Energy Management and shutdown the pc,  unplug the ac charger and remove the battery . 
Without battery and charger , press down the power button for 15 seconds to drain remaining power. 
 
Place back the battery and charger and use the Novo button (Item 2 page 9 left side) to turn on pc. 
Novo screen should appear offering BIOS set up . F9 to load defaults , F10 to save and exit. 
 
Without the Energy manager , restart the pc and check .
You may reinstall it back from the support site under power management.
 
You can review the power checkout step guide provided here (page21-22) .
 
Update us how things go.

Ok so a bit over a week ago I bought my ideapad 2 in 1 and about two-three days ago I noticed the battery was at 95 %. I keep it plugged in but it's not charging. Right now it's at 94% but that's probably because I moved it out of my room where I usually keep it to work in the dining room for a bit.Does anyone know how to fix it without removing the battery because I think I have to unscrew the back to get to it and I really would rather not do that or is it normal for the battery to be at a 94-95% charge. I really am hoping I don't have to bring it in to Best Buy because I just bought this and I can't financially afford to get it fixed right now

Hello!I write here with a problem that I have since the day before yesterday.When my Laptop is on and the charger is plugged in, the battery won't charge, giving the notification "plugged in, not charging". Laptop works like the charger wasn't plugged - energy drains from battery.I suppose that is a software problem, because when laptop is turned off or hibernated it charges normally.Formating didn't help at all.Microsoft support told me to recalibrate battery - didn't work.Lenovo support told me to try another charger in service - I will try if nothing else works.Maybe someone had the problem like that and solved it without going to service, which I want to keep as a last resort solution.Thanks in advance!

Hi!My Yoga 500-15ISK Laptop seems to have a battery issue. For some time now, whenever I plug my laptop into the AC power, I get this message, e.g. "(% charge) available, (plugged in, charging)", however for some reason, the battery level actually stays the same even after a significant amount of time of being plugged in to the AC supply. Moreover, the battery icon initially shows the animated one which indicates charging is indeed in progress, then after a few moments, it will freeze on the estimated level.Before this, my laptop's battery usually charges relatively quickly. Also, I have not turned on the Conservation Mode so it must charged up beyond 50-60% especially if I leave it plugged in overnight. This issue is really bewildering me right now. Any comments or suggestions on how I can address this issue?Thanks!Other notes re my laptop:It's been around 10 months since I've bought it and I have encountered this issue only a few days ago.I have no other issues with it.

Hi Mina,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
1)  Shut down the computer.
2)  With the battery in (but AC adapter removed), attempt to turn on the computer by holding down the power button for 30 sec. This should not turn on the computer.
3)  Remove the battery.
4)  Again, attempt to turn on the computer (AC adapter not plugged in) by holding down the power button for 30 sec.  This should not turn on the computer either.
5)  Replace battery, plug in the AC adapter, and turn on the computer.  The battery should begin charging.
 
I hope the above information helps.

At first, I thought it was just my keyboard dock not charging my tablet, so I detatched the keyboard, and the tablet completely shut off. I plugged the AC adapter into the tablet, and it came back to life, but it would not charge at all. The keyboard dock would be at 100%, but the tablet itself would only be at 8%. I have installed the Lenovo Dependency Package thing and the firmware update, but it didn't change anything. Now, even though it says (plugged in, charging) on my tablet, it's not really charging. So, whenever I unplug the tablet or detatch the tablet from the keyboard dock, the system completely turns off because it's only at 8%. Please help me! Thank you!  EDIT: Okay, so I unplugged the AC adapter while the keyboard dock was on and then Battery #1, the tablet battery, drained down to 0%, and its status is now Plugged in, not charging, while Battery #2 is plugged in, charging.

So I bought this laptop 3 days ago. It seems like it has a charging problem. It sometimes charges when I let the laptop in sleep mode or close the lid. I sometimes get a full charge but then, when I'm using it, it just stops charging for no reason. To "force charge" it, I discovered that if I first unplug the charger from the laptop itself, then disconnect the cable from the power brick, plug it back in the laptop and connect the brick back again, it seems to charge for around 4 more minutes. I tried updateing the BIOS with the support from the official Lenovo support site (this one) but it does not work. I heard about the removing the battery and pressing the power button but I can't remove the battery.  The power brick and charger are original and seem to work fine. Should I try buying another charger? Please resond to this as I'm desperate. Thanks much !

Hi AhmedMagdyy,Have checked in Lenovo Settings app if Conservation Mode is enabled. Conversation mode is under the battery icon of the app. If enabled, kindly disable the feature. Conservation mode helps extend the battery life of the tablet/laptop by limiting the max charge the battery can hold. Hope this helps.Cheers,

Hi,

I have a Lenovo Z50-70 running Windows 8.1. The laptop is relatively new, bought in Jan. 2015.

Some time ago, the original battery suddenly started to have a problem where it would say 45% available, plugged in, not charging. No matter what fixes I tried (after looking through a lot of articles, posts, comments, etc.), nothing made the battery start charging again. It always stays at 45%. Also the battery light/indicator on the front of the laptop is always blinking white.

So I got a new battery, put it in hoping that it would work and charge up to 100%, but the new battery is having exactly the same problem as the original old one! It will only charge up to 45%, then it says plugged in not charging. The battery light is again always blinking white.

What do I do? How can this be fixed? What's going on?

Appreciate any help. Thank you very much.

check the warranty is still active, as thats one route you could take with a relatively new laptop.

also, try uninstalling the energy management and restart the system and check for the issue. also try uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI from the device manager and restart the system and check for the issue. for more info on this action see this thread in the link:

Hello Any suggestions for a Lenovo G50-80 that won't charge in Windows 10? When hovering over the battery icon, the message shows "plugged in, not charging". However, it will charge when it is shut down and off. This leads me to believe that is a Windows issue. Possibly a corrupt driver? Any suggestions? Is re-installing Windows 10 the only option? And will that fix it? I gotta think so, but am open to suggestions. Thanks.

hi MlodyDziura,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Can you Verify that when the Computer is Plugged in and Turned on the battery icon on the lower right states that it is Plugged in not Charging.
      And how many Percent it says on the status.
 
Thanks
Solid Cruver

Hey Community, I'm in dire need for help, my lenovo Y50-70 has been working fine for the past 3 years now and JUST after the warrenty is up, my battery becomes funky. I noticed that whenever I load up a game, the charger becomes unrecognized and instead of regular led lights, i get one blinking white light and one blinking orange light. When I remove the AC adapter and plug it back in, it'll recognize the charger and ocasionally it'll take some time to recognize it. It stops charging when the LED lights begin to blink. I've tried to1. "remove the static" or drain the battery by unplugging the AC adapter2. holding down the power button for 30 seconds (I didnt remove the battery because it's not a removable battery, Should I?).3. Changed the power settings to high performance and no conservation of power.4. I bought a new adapter and it's still happening, I have no idea what to do. Intially prior of buying a new adapter it drained and I couldnt figure out a way to get it to charge. With the new adapter I was able to charge it till full, but when I have it on, it does the same thing.  Please help me community, you kind souls. Best,Richard

Hi.I don't usually utilize the full laptop battery and it stays plugged in for the most part. Today I let the battery go to 0%. After plugging in, it shows 'Plugged in, Charging, 0% available'. It's been several hours since I left it plugged in but it still won't charge up. As soon as I remove the Adapter, the laptop turns off. The product is still a year inside warranty. Is there a diagnosis of the problem? Is it a hardware issue or something else? How do I go about rectifying it? I have exams in the next 2 weeks.

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?
