Lenovo G50-80 sometimes turns off upon plugging in charger

Q: Lenovo G50-80 sometimes turns off upon plugging in charger

I have a Lenovo G50-80 (Model: 80E5). The issue I am facing is that whenever i plug in the charger irrespective of the amount of battery charged it sometimes turns off the laptop. One of the things i have observed is that if I plugin the charger inserting the jack very slowly into the charging port it usually does not turn off. Has anyone else have this kind of a problem and can help me with this! Its really annoying to have your laptop restart whenever I have to plug it in. (My laptop is almost 3 years old but the problem came up after 2 years i believe. Suggestions are welcome!!!!!!!

Hi I've been using my X220i for the last 3 years or so and decided to upgrade to an i7 X230 a few days ago. After a few days of no problems, using the same charger I've been using on my X220 (the 90w slim travel charger) I plugged it in to charge while the laptop was powered on. The laptop powered off instantly and now it will not power on again. There are no status lights visible and nothing happens when I plug it in. I have done all the steps of removing the battery and pressing the power button etc and on putting the battery back in the fingerprint sensor light was flickering orange - it is now back to no signs of life at all again other than the left side of the palmrest gets hot when I insert the battery. I am strongly suspecting a fault with the charger fried the motherboard when I plugged it in but am wondering if anyone else has any suggestions before i try to make a claim within my remaining 1 week of warranty. Thnaks

The past few days, my laptop has been freezing after about 20 minutes (lately the amount of time has been decreasing to now about 15 minutes). First it would only freeze if it went idle but now it's freezing randomly. It would only freeze when I plug in my charger.

I replaced my adapter to see if that was the problem, but it wasn't. I also tried changing my set up so that my computer wouldn't sleep but still, it would freeze. I also launched CCleaner to try and clean up my registry and though it did fix up some problems, yes once again, my laptop would freeze.

I installed several anti-virus/malware programs as well but none of them seemed to work. They wouldn't detect anything through quick scan but once I try full scan, it would freeze. I tried going into safe mode, but before making it in, my laptop would stop and go into regular mode. And just a few minutes ago, I got the blue screen of death.

Please help!

I recently bought a new Dell XPS 15 9550 laptop. Whenever I plug in the charger to charge the laptop, the IMDb webpage of the movie "Don't Breathe" opens. This only happens once, i.e. when I plug the charger for the first time and not after that. It's a really bizarre problem, which I am not understanding. Can someone else please shed a light on this?

First of all, thank you very much for all your previous help. I'm back with more difficulties. 
 
My laptop (HP Envy dv7) recently forced a Windows 8.1 update. Ever since, whenever I plug or unplug the charger, the screen goes black for a second or two. Troubleshooting didn't fix it? Help is much appreciated.

A:Temporary black screen (un)plugging charger

That means your display driver is not usable for windows 8 and windows 8.1. I would advise you to download and install Windows 7 display driver in compatibility mode and review if it helps.
There are few steps to set up window 7 display driver
 
Install & download display driver
Right click on the driver & go the properties
Select compatibility’ tab and test the box "Run this program in compatibility mode for” and click Windows 7 operating system from the drop down.
Finally click on button ”apply” then “ok” and run the file to install it

I was wondering if anyone is familiar with a method to enable sounds for when you plug in or remove a charger connected to your laptop. It is not a problem with my pc, but is an option that is not available for me which i would like to install to let me know if i accidentally unplugged the charger, particularly if I'm working on a full-screen feature. Any help would be appreciated.
I have Windows 7 home Premium 32-bit installed.

A:How to enable sound when plugging/unplugging charger for laptop.

In the System Sounds, there is an option for device connect or disconnect. This will probably do what you want. You will have to assign a sound for those functions.

The System Sounds panel can be accessed from Start/Control Panel/Hardware and Sounds. Click on "Change System Sounds".

I recently bought a wireless 3G USB modem / hot spot. Although i use it primarily by plugging in my PC USB port, It just occurred to me that my smartphone charger also has a USB port. So i was wondering if i can use the modem by using the charger USB port or not. That way i will not have to keep my PC powered on all the time. My charger has a output rating of 5V and 830mA. I reckon there shouldn't be a problem but want to be sure lest i damage the modem.

Hi! I have 4 years old Lenovo Yoga Ideapad 13.  The problems started couple weeks ago, when the computer wouldn't run or start up without being plugged in. I followed some other people's advice and got a new battery. It seemed to fix to problem for while. Now few weeks after the same problem stands with the new battery. It won't start or run, but when plugged in it says the battery is 100% and charging.   I tried checking if the charger isn't working, but it charges all fine on my other Yoga, which has the same charger model. So please note that this isn't the common problem that is seen here on the forums, that the battery doesnt charge. I'm pretty frustrated, as this problem persists even though I changed the battery. Anyone have ideas? I figured it could have something to do with the battery wire connecting battery to the motherboard, but there doesn't seem to be any defects or loose wires.  However, I tried taking off the battery connection wire when plugged in, and then I get the message "No battery detected" instead of the regular "100% Fully charged". Any help is appreciated.

Just noticed this whenever I plug or unplug the charger. The laptop lags for 1-2 seconds before returning to normal. This is noticeable when playing games or watching videos. Haven't seen any abnormal drops or spikes with the temperature of the CPU, GPU and HDD which would suggest a hardware issue. Tried doing this while running 3DBenchmark, and there is a huge drop in FPS, from 130-200fps down to almost 16fps esp. when unplugging the charger.Is this normal?

Hello, I have a Y510P notebook and I am having some problems with it. Once I was playing on this laptop and it suddenly it turned off. The power cord would make a weird noise and it wouldn't turn on. After a while it started to work normally. It was probably a high voltage spike in my house, since we already lost a cellphone. After that I notice that the laptop would turn off, as soon as I plugged the power cord. I ordered a new power cord and battery, but this issue is still happening. Anyone has an idea? Thank you!

Hi Tiagoramosleite,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
You can initially start isolating the issue using the power checkout guideline (page 21). 
Try to notice anything on the DC port like bent pin , unusual appearance / marks or smell of burnt . 
 
Would any led status light (page30) still be lit when plugged in. 
 
It would be best to have it further checked for further isolation for dc in port issue against failure on the systemboard itself with nearest service center or call in technical support for further recommendation. 
 
Update us how it works best for you.

I have an Acer Aspire E15 laptop, I've been using it with Windows 8.1 until I did a clean install of Windows 10 recently. Normally, when I get the warning notice that I have 10% power left, I plug in the power cord and continue work.  But now when I plug the cord in, it turns off the screen (goes black). I still get audio but no video. If I unplug the cord, the screen comes back. What's going on? I've never had this issue with Win 8.1 or any other OS version before.

Check your power saving settings (Search for Power Options, then change the plan settings) and make sure the 'turn screen off' option isn't set somwhere weird when running on AC. Also make sure the brightness isn't set to zero.

Hello guys,

Since yesterday i'm facing a strange issue.. Whenever i plug in my laptop to charge, it just automatically turns off (not proper shutdown) within a few moments. This duration before power off varies at times. Its runs without any problem when on safe made. This problem happens only when win 7 is in normal mode. I noticed that the fan speed increases as i plug in. However, this also used to happen earlier. On searching online, some said it may be due to heating issue. But then how does it work normally in safe mode? Also, when i start in Diagnostic Start up mode, it starts perfectly. It does not start when i remove my battery and plug in..it powers off just after entering windows. This problem does not occur when in BIOS. Please help in finding a suitable solution.

Thank you.

A:Laptop turns off when plugging in for charging in normal mode on win7

Post make & model in case this is a "known issue" that can be google-searched for.

By "normal" mode, do you mean not "safe mode", or not "selective startup/msconfig"?

Does the problem also happen in safe mode?
Does the problem also happen in Selective Startup?

Otherwise, what do you mean by "normal".

One guess is that you have a problem with a 3rd party power management software. It's supposed to start "doing something" (such as report the battery status) when it senses a power plug is inserted, but instead it shuts down.

Is the shut down orderly (Windows is shutting down), or is it abrupt, like someone suddenly killed the power?

What's most interesting so far is the possibility that the machine works & charges fine in Safe Mode, but not in MSCONFIG or Normal mode. If that's the case, we're looking for a software problem that can probably be solved by reinstalling something, compared to a hardware problem which can be serious, expensive and/or insolvable.

My charger is fine, and does recharge my computer. I've tried 2 different chargers, both with same results. The problem persists which leads me to believe it's a problem with my computer. I plug in my charger, and then sometimes it begins flickering between charging and not charging. Sometimes there is a 5 second interval before it changes, sometimes it's every second.

This really downs the performance of my PC, especially when playing games, as it lags and stutters while it keeps flickering.
It seems to be tied to my RAM usage, and then again sometimes not. If I make no actions on the PC, it stops after a while. If i proceeds to open google, it begins to swap on and off like crazy. After a while, it stops again. If it doesn't begin flickering, I can open a game, which will then trigger it somehow. However, some days I can take as many actions as I'd like, use as much RAM as I want, having 20+ programs running and nothing happens at all. Sometimes the problem persists even after letting my labtop shut down for hours, and when I turn it on it begins again. Some days it just doesn't appear, and everything works as intended.

It also seems to have a "cooldown". If it flickers, I can most of the time stop taking actions and it will stop after a while. If i keep on not doing anything, I can after some time open a game and run it with no problems, however it will after some time begin to flicker between charging and not charging again.

So I apologize ahead of time if I'm breaking any noobish rules, I'm only slightly frantic here... Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!!

I own an Alienware m17x r4 that's about 3 years old. I was playing a game on it and it just suddenly turned itself off (had my headphones on and heard kind of a popping sound, dunno if relevant). I checked the cable because it comes out sometimes, but it was still plugged in, but the light on the cable where it plugs into the laptop itself was turned off.

I thought the cable connected to the power brick had come unplugged but that was okay too. I plugged the cable into a different outlet and the light came back on (it wasn't plugged into the laptop at this time) so I plugged it back into the laptop but the light immediately went out and nothing. I tried unplugging the outlet cable from the brick and plugging back in, but no dice. (did this a few times with light coming on but turning off when plugged into laptop.)

There's a button on the bottom of the laptop right by the battery that when pressed, five lights turn on. Just noticed this so I don't really know what it means; I'm assuming it tells me how charged the battery is. If so it's telling me the battery is fully charged then.

Correct if pressed and released tells you what the charge is. If held down the amount of light that light up tell life of battery or something to that effect.






I read somewhere about a bad charger overloading something or other. Could this be possible? Also, my main concern is the things on my laptop.

Hello, I have a 3 yr old Ideapad Z510(that came with Win8)which worked absolutely fine until recently. If I plug in the charger when the laptop is on, it abruptly turns off and would never boot again until I remove the charger. However, this is not how it behaves every time. There are some rare instances where I could still operate the machine with charger plugged in.  When turned off, battery is charging and also goes to full 100%. When turned on(battery mode) it does not drain rapidly - I could still get a fairly decent stand up time. So I am assuming the battery is good. I don't see any thermal issues either. Things I tried:-------------- > Tried with a different charger - no help.> Updated the firmware - no help.> Update the entire driver pack - no help.> Applied windows patches, reinstalled and also upgraded windows to Win 10 - no help.> Reseated the battery and associated cables - no help.  I am not sure if there is anything that I could do to at least diagonize the problem before I give it to the service station. Any pointers on this is much appreciated   Thanks much in advance.

My Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't recognize charger any more. And unfortunately my warranty expired 2 month ago.It was plugged in and working in the morning, but then in the afternoon I noticed that it was running on the battery only. It wont start without battery (just charger plugged in).

This is why for a debugging purposes it was good.I took my charger and plugged in to his computer. And it works. Definitely not the charger issue I guess. And when I plug charger in to my computer, green light is still on the charger. And I have the original charger that came with the laptop.
2. Now, laptop works on the battery only, so this means that motherboard is working. I guess.
3. Next thing I did was unplugged charger and removed the battery from the laptop. Then I pushed and hold "Power" button for 45 seconds to discharge a flea charge. Plugged charger back in but laptop wont start.
4. Next I started laptop on the battery, went to BIOS and checked if the charger is recognized in the BIOS. No, it doesn't recognize charger. So, if it is not a charger then what else can it be?

Hi CJ777,
Thanks for reaching out with your query. You pretty much figured out all points of failure. Good job.
If the adapter is not detected in BIOS, it most likely is an issue with the mother board. In the BIOS set up, AC adapter should show up as 65w or 90w. If the adapter status is 'None' or 'Unknown Device Installed', it indicates that the mother board is not detecting the adapter for which the battery is not getting charged. Once the battery charge drains, I'm sure the adapter will not charge it again. Replacing the system board should resolve this issue.

Was becoming fed up with all of this and just imported it from US. Now, I know the tip is interchangable, but noone (here in Portugal) is able to tell me where I can buy the EU tip, obviously I can always use it with a small adapter but would be neat to have the EU tip. I attached some photos for reference,  thank you in advance, Hugo

Is there a different charger fitting to N500 compared to for instance T43/42/41. The plug seems to fit but it's not charging...

A:Charger Lenovo N500

According to the N500, T41 and T43's Hardware Maintenance Manuals the problem is related to voltage output of the AC adapter.  The N500 needs a 19 to 20 VDC adapter and the T41 / T43 uses a 15.5 to 17 VDC adapter.  Here is a link to those manuals for your reference.

The AC adapter should have a label that lists the DC output of the adapter.

Is this the right charger? Because I think the store who sold it to me made a mistake and gave me a ThinkPad charger instead.This has an indication of 20V and 3.25A while my Lenovo Yoga laptop indicates (bottom of notebook) 20V and 2.25A.

Hello there folks. I've got a ThinkPad T410 that I has no charger as I threw it away, the cord frayed, didn't work and threw off sparks everywhere. Since then the T410 has just been sitting in storage but now I'd love to get it up and running again. Thing is, I don't remember which charger I need. Lenovo's official page for the T410 says it supports a 65w and a 90w charger and I don't know which one it needs. Does it matter? Thanks, have a good day.





Have a good day.

Hi Ram,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As I understand that you have query regarding T410 AC adapter. Yes, you can use both 65W & 90W Adapter depending upon your usage.
Normally 90W Adapter is used when you are using the system with dock as it will consume more power 
List of universal adapter for your T410 65W & 90W
And for more details you can go through the parts list or HMM, page 179
 
I hope the above information helps. Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!
 
 
Regards,
Prabhansh

Hi! I recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 710-14isk in France which comes with a charger known as "Wall charger" : this one http://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories-and-monitors/chargers-and-batteries/chargers/PWR-ADP-BO-65W... I'm moving to Canada next month for 2 years and I would like to know if this charger can be turned into a US / Canada charger by changing only the wall plug? It seams that the plug can be separate from the rest of the chaeger but I didn't find how.I didn't find on the lenovo store any plug to replace my french plug as well. Do you know if something like that exist and where I can find it?If not I guesss it's easier and cheaper to buy only a universal plug adapter, but since I'll stay in Canada for a long time, a proper integrated solution seems better for me ! Thank you for your help !
