I am having a message that says "Genuine Lenovo Battery Not Attached" message that appears after Windows 8.1 starts up. A similar sort of message appears before even Windows boots up, and I need to press the 'Esc' key in order for Windows to boot. This seems to have happened after a recent Windows update. I have uninstalled an reinstalled the Lenovo Power Management Driver but it does not appear to have fixed the issue. My BIOS is the latest version. This issue is on my Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S1. Any assistance is appreciated.

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga is displaying a message stating ?Genuine Lenovo Battery Not Attached?.
 
I would suggest you to perform Flee Power ? remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer. Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect the battery and AC adapter to turn ON the computer.
Get into BIOS and load defaults, save and exit.
 
Open Device Manager and under Battery Look for Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control method Battery, right Click on it and uninstall it, Restart after uninstallation.
 
Please let me know the happenings!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Hi guys. I recently purchased a "Lenovo Thinkpad L540". I encountered an odd WARNING when I was reading its documentation. this WARNING is as following:
________________________________________________________
Notice for users in the U.S.A.Many personal computer products and accessories contain cords, cables or wires, such as power cords or cords to connect the accessory to a personal computer. If this product has such a cord, cable or wire, then the following warning applies:WARNING: Handling the cord on this product or cords associated with accessories sold with this product will expose you to lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
________________________________________________________
I got confused! Does this mean that every time I handle or touch my power cord, I should wash my hands? I have to tell that I live in IRAN. Do you guys know anything about this warning? pls explain it for me.
thanks a lot.

Hello,  I have a L540 (20AV006TGE) and it currently has 8GB RAM - I know that it can be upgraded to 16GB of RAM. As far as I found out (because the Notebook is on a remote site) it should have 8GB of SO-DIMM 1600 PC3L-12800 Module. From an FRU List in the Forum I found that for this Notebook it should be followingFRU 03X6657 1 8GB DDR3L 1600 SODIMM My Question is, if I can use any DDR3 SODIMM with 1600Mhz to add to the existing module or would there be compatibility issues. Can I for example use this RAM ? Thanks for your answers

Dear Lenovo Community, we are experiencing major performance drops when chaining 2 Displays using displayport 1.2 on a L540. The performance drops to like 1-10 FPS in windows. We tried to fix the problem with using the newst firmware / drivers and bios update. Turns out it didnt help at all.See attachment for the stats of the machine. The strange part about this is that we are using the exact same setup a L540 (same stats) and same displays, newst firmware, drivers for another employee without any issues. we are using 2x DellUltraSharpU2415 Displays. (chaining from one Display to another with Displayport cables and enabling displayport 1.2) If anyone knows a solution to this problem, please share it. thanks in advance. sincerly /nik.

Running Windows 10.  TYPE 20AV-CTO1WW After having performed the Lenovo update (as advised by the software, done this many times before) the laptop is now in a state in which it will continually restart, with the message "Configuration changed - restart the system" shown during the cycle. I have tried to break this cycle by pressing various keys, but no luck there.  I then removed the main battery, AC power, and CMOS battery, and all this did was add the warning "0271: Real Time Clock Error - Check Date and Time Settings" to the above message.  It won't boot from a recovery USB drive I made months ago for this computer. Long story short, a Lenovo update bricked my computer.  It was working just fine before the update, and now it's a doorstop.  I've seen that this error has plagued many ThinkPad owners, and the usual excuse is a motherboard problem.  I really don't see how that's the issue. Anyone got anything?

Hello Everyone, I am considering the purchase of a specific power bank for my L540 laptop. The product is the Vinsic 30000mah. I can't seem to get clarification on whether my Lenovo laptop will successfully hook up with the PB and take the charge. As far as I can tell, the PB has a lot of muscle and is well-recommended. The PB comes with 8 adaptors; for Lenovo products it lists a  7.9*10 mm adaptor. It says it has 3 output ports: 1 DC output up to 19V 3.5A, with a max output current of 4.5A; and 2 Smart USB outputs, with output up to 5V 2.4A.  It also says it has 2 Input ports: 1 DC input and 1 Micro USB input. I am uncertain if the specs on my L540 make it compatible with the features listed shown above. Can someone with expertise advise me if I'm Ok to go ahead with the purchase based on the features? Many thanks!

Full discharge  The process performed full charging followed by complete discharge of the battery which caused the laptop to shut down.   When I tried turning on my laptop, it could not start.  The battery charging indicator LED wasnt switched on even though the power cord was inserted into the laptop.  I could start the laptop only after removing the battery.   Once the laptop was on, I inserted the battery back in and it began to charge.  After about 50% of charging, I removed the power cord and inserted it again.  Now the battery couldnt resume charging.  I again had to shut down the laptop and repeat the above steps of inserting battery after switching on the laptop without battery.  Only then the battery would resume charging. After this, I decided to allow the battery to charge to 100%.

A:LENOVO Y500 BATTERY NOT CHARGING AFTER USING LENOVO'S BATTERY GAUGE CALIBRATION

 
 
ADMIN Edit - While the original post below is marked as the solution, because service will be required if the battery will no longer charge after performing a battery reset, I am adding a Lenovo update here to confirm.   Normal operation will allow the battery to relearn its capacity characteristics when using the battery reset function.  Typically this is not needed in normal use..   Batteries are equipped with a safety feature that will permanently disconnect them (like a fuse) if cell imbalance or an internal short is detected.   This tends to be statistically infrequent, but also normal, and would require a battery replacement.  (Batteries have a 1 year warranty).   This battery feature can also  produce similar results to what is being discussed in the thread, so it should first be considered by service.   This particular  forum discussion also involves a situation that could affect a limited number of systems, and could lead service to replace the system board during warranty.  
 
If your system experiences these symptoms, please contact service during the warranty period.

If it was purchased from Dell, it's genuine.  Otherwise, ask the seller.  That product ID's date code indicates the battery was built 2012 -- so if it is original Dell, it's been sitting on a shelf for a while - or is used.

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 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.Click to expand...

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.

Despite the manufacturer's claim of 7 hours battery life on my Lenovo Ideapad 320S-14IKB - 81BN (S/N: MP1CHQTJ), I only get around 3-4 hours. This is with light usage, Reddit, a little bit of youtube etc. CPU usage was mostly around 0-5% the entire time. This was with the max CPU state in power settings reduced from 100% to 85%. However, I do have the screen at 100% brightness. As a different test, I tried doing (almost) nothing (apart from keeping the screen bright), and got 6 hours out of the battery. Is there a simple solution to increase this? It's only a 30 Wh battery (2 cell). Maybe in the future, a 60 Wh (4 cell?) one will come out for this model?

Hi all - I recently purchased what I believed to be a genuine 44++ Lenovo 9 cell battery, however a few things have caused me to suspect it might not be genuine. When it arrived the sticker was loose as shown in one of the photos below, I thought Lenovo serial numbers had to be 22 characters and this only has 20?  The batteries I can see under the loose sticker I believe are the correct type though for the model? So perhaps the sticker was just loose and the serial number is fine and I'm worrying over nothing. Any ideas anyone? I tried to contact Lenovo on Facebook but had no response, can't find a support email address and can't raise a new ticket as I don't have a working serial number to use. Thanks Tim 

A:Bought as genuine new, possible fake 44+ battery

This is a fake battery with no doubt. In general, we don't want to give public details why it's fake, so producers could possibly fix issues after.Anyway, from my recent experience, all of these are using LG or Samsung cells which are actually good and durable. Are you satisfied with battery life?If you purchased it on eBay, I advise you to contact the seller and ask for a full refund, especially if it was advertised as "genuine".In that way, after significant amount of refunds for "genuine" batteries, maybe we can impact that market.

I have recently purchased new laptop battery for my Dell Inspiron 15R (N5010). I tried to find the battery on dell official website but couldn't find it. So I ordered one from Amazon India website. It had mentioned that the product was from Dell. I received it today. It is behaving usually. It charged till 96% and then suddenly showed fully charged battery! As soon as I unplugged, it again dropped to 96% and then kept discharging at uneven rate as time passed. I just want to make sure that its a genuine Dell part.

Hi,
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop with Battery of type: RN873, Rating: 11.1V, Capacity 56Wh.

Currently this battery is not available in the market and whenever I purchase online for a battery of Inspiron 1525, I am getting battery of different type, Capacity 48Wh. Can you help me to get an genuine dell battery?

Please would appreciate your help. Thank you!

A:Need and genuine DELL 1525 BATTERY

For a genuine Dell battery you'll pay $80-100 -- consider carefully spending that on a system that has a resale value of between $50-75 on the used market (in other words, you'll be spending more on the battery than the system is worth).
