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.)
How old is the battery? NC6400 is a very classic machine to say the least.Read other 1 answers
Windows Update really f****d up my wife's laptop. Her Yoga 2 11 was crippled in every sense of the word. Updates killed her Windows installation, which I can deal with. That's a non-issue minus the data she lost. What really screwed her though is that her laptop now does not recognize that a battery is plugged in. Let me expand upon this a bit: Windows (and Linux) do not recognize a battery is plugged in; the laptop WILL run off battery power; the laptop will NOT charge the battery; when running with the AC adpater plugged in, unplugging it will trigger the low battery LED flash on the power button & continue to run on battery power. I've tried installing the Lenovo battery software. I've tried uninstalling the Windows power drivers. I've tried installting different Linux power management packages on Ubuntu and Mint from a live USB. I've tried a fresh Windows install on a fresh hard drive (works fine minus the battery). I've tried new batteries. Hell, I've taken apart one of the batteries to make sure the battery was ok (it was fine). I've tested the motherboard for electrical continuity, and it all checks out. The one and only thing I cannot do is flash a new BIOS because, here we go again, the battery is not recognized. I'm literally at a loss at this point. Her warranty has, of course, expired. I'm open to any and all suggestions.Read other answers

My 2 year old moderately used laptop battery suddenly died after a windows update. Everything was working fine, the battery still held charge for over 2 hours and now it doesn't work at all. When I hover over the battery icon it says '79% available (plugged in, not charging)'. If I pull out the charger my laptop stops as though it doesn't recognise there's a battery. I ran the HP battery test and it told me the battery is dead. How can a normally functioning laptop battery suddenly die after a standard update? I see there are a number of customers complaining about the battery not charging when switched on but my battery doesn't work at all - although it apparently is 79% charged. Is this normal for HP laptops?Read other answers
I think that my netbook (Toshiba NB550D-111, Win7 Starter) may have powered off during Windows Update as now it will not get past the green loading bar with "Microsoft Corporation" underneath. It gives an option to start Windows normally or to load repair files but both end up stuck on the green loading bar. Safe mode (all options) gets as far as classpnp.sys then freezes.
Using a different laptop I made a Window Repair Disk and then copied the files over the a USB (netbook has no CD Drive) as per the online guides. When the USB is booted the repair files load, there is a blinking cursor then it's back into the green loading bar. Safe mode (all options) gets stuck on disk.sys with the USB inserted.
Found some threads with similar symptoms with most being caused by a dodgy HD connection (checked, nothing obviously disconnected) or the wrong SATA mode selected in the BIOS (seems to make no difference between ACHI or Compatible). I then tried a live Linux USB to replace the classpnp.sys file with another from a working (different specs) laptop, this led to the same results.
I have not waited longer than 15 min at the green loading bar and I don't have any installations disks. If anyone has experienced this before or can give any pointers they'd be greatly appreciated, thanks.
It only shows when i hover my mouse over the battery icon.Read other answers

I've tried many times to install the latest critical BIOS update, using Lenovo System Update, and every time it attempts to, it fails after telling me in a popup that I need to turn the system off and make sure I have a fully charged battery. I rarely rely on battery power and use AC primarily, and I used Power Manager twice to do a full reset, just in case. I can't believe I would need to buy a new battery in order to install it, because the battery works just fine. I'm running Windows 7 (64-bit), and exhausted every other update or option, unless there's something else I'm not aware of. Is it just the software toying with me?
Hello and welcomeDo not perform the BIOS update from within the TVSU. It's much safer to use CD/DVD and ISO image from the T530 support page.Read other 1 answers
I have an ASUS K50IE laptop that i had for 2 years now. been working fine until 2 days ago.
this problem has been bugging me for the last 2 days. here's why.
my laptop suddenly didn't detect my battery. thought it was because my battery was dead. I searched the net on things to do before "throwing in the towel" on my battery and today i came across a blog where the instruction was to uninstall the Microsoft ACPI compliant control method battery driver. I did just that and my battery suddenly worked! well sort of. now here's where it gets all weird.
every time i open my laptop i do the following:
1. plug in AC to laptop.
2. turn on laptop.
3. unplug AC.
3. laptop runs on battery.
4. log on to windows.
5. battery icon shows up as an empty charging icon then shows the "Battery is not detected" icon again.
please take note that my laptop is still ON and WORKING. so this means (MAYBE?) that my battery is working.
is it a battery problem? or the driver is just messed up?
please anyone who encountered this and had SUCCESSFULLY fixed the problem. coz i need to fix this right now.
thanks and more power to you all!
I had a problem similar a while back. Try this
1.Shut down the laptop
2.Take out the ac cord and the battery. Hold down the power for about 10 seconds to remove electric charge in the capacitors.
3.Put the battery back in and reboot.
4.Start windows normally, and See if the battery is recognized.
I updated my laptop bios and since then my laptop continuosly reboot when the battery is plug. If I take the battery off the system starts and everything is fine, but when a plug in the battery, in 10 seconds the laptop switch off.

Yesterday my labtop (Thinkpad 510) recieved an message from Lenovo saying an update to the firmware of my battery has just come out. So I installed this firmware and it was almost through the final process of updating this when at 91% it crashed saying the update could not be finalized, and said i should restart my computer. Ever since my battery has had no charge and always has to be plugged in. Any way to fix this or is my battery toast?
Hello and welcome,
I've moved your post from General to T-series, but perhaps it belongs somewhere else. There are several models with a "510".
Please confirm your laptop model - and series - so we can put this post in the right place.
First was XP 32 Media Center. Was able to use a Windows 7 product key to update to Windows 10. I noticed that certain models of my lap top are upgradable to 4 GB of ram. Would like to know if my is upgradable to 4 GB. I also noted it looks like my battery was recalled and I missed it or wasn't notified. Can I still get a replacement Battery. Laptop Model RG390UA#ABA (or A8A) hard to tell. (V6105NR). I would really like to upgrade this to 4 GB if it's now supported. Do need a specific BIOS update? The last curiousity, is there any thing to watch out for if I go to upgrade the Hard Drive. Thanks for your time.Read other answers

Hello,I recently bought the pavilion x2 12 detachable b003tu. I was having a strange problem. When I fully charged the device, the battery reduced directly from 100% to 93% without the anything in between. I contacted Hp technical support. They gave me some intel driver updates and BIOS update. After doing that the battery issue was not resolved. However the battery backup drastically reduced by 2 hours. I did a factory reset and updated to my previous BIOS but the issue was not resolved.Now I am having another problem apart from the battery issue. Usually Microsoft downloads updates when the Battery Saver option is turned off. My battery saver option is turned off but then also when I open the Update page it says "Battery Saver option is turned on" and will update after the mode is turned off. The same message is displayed even when I plug in the power adapter. Hence Microsoft is unable to download any updates. Pls help.Read other answers

However, it comes with a Dell labelled original wrapped (unopened) CD entitled "Dell BIOS Upgrade".

1 - why this is needed.
2 - if I can simply plug the new battery in to use and charge it.

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!

First of all, i have to apologize for my bad English if it is not as good as should be..., after this, i could start to tell all of you what happened to me in the last few weeks...
I have an a C50-A-154 Toshiba Satellite Pro, and I use it for some home stuff like watching some youtube videos, listen to music, and that kind of things than a normal user do.
A few weeks ago, a Toshiba Tempro Alert remind me that there were some software updates avaliables to download for my laptop, so I installed them, I normally unplug my battery when I have the AC cord plugged, so, i didn't realize after a week after that my battery was not recognized like it should be for my toshiba.
At first, the windows said that it was totally charged and no need to continue charging, so I unplugged the AC cord, and the laptop shutted down (with battery plugged and seems so be 100% charged).
When I plugged again the AC cord, windows said that the battery was empty, and said, PLugged but not charging...
At the same time, a new update from toshiba was released, this time was for the bios, so i though that it will probabbly fix the problem with the battery, so, I updated the BIOS and then windows said that the battery was full charged again... i couldn't believe....!!
But the system still goes down when yo unplugg the AC cord, and now de battery says again that it is empty..

I think it could be an ?software? related issue.
In device manager you will find the entry Micorsoft ACPI compliant method battery. This belongs to the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface.
I would recommend you to uninstall the three entries which you could find within the battery area.
Then reboot the notebook. After new reboot, the system should install all the removed devices once again.
Usually this should helps to sort out the issue in case its just system problem
My laptop's battery stopped working - is sitting at 0% "plugged in, not charging". I know the battery may be dead but trying to do everything I can.

Hi,I recently updated my Inspiron 17R (7720) to the latest bios however as soon as it completed the process the battery stopped working. When I go into the bios there is the following message:"Your battery is temporarily disabled. Please turn off your computer and try again when the unit is back to the operational temperature". The machine has been left off for many hours now and is very cool to the touch however the battery wont engage and the issue persists between multiple battery packs (I have a backup battery too). As far as I can tell it is the bios that has broken my laptop and I am unable to fix it on my own.

Hello,a week ago I updated the BIOS of my Thinkpad T460 from Version 1.07 to 1.10 and then some time later I noticed that from there on the internal battery pack was discharged before the external one. Normally it has to be the other way round.In the beginning I couldn't imagine that it has something to do with the new BIOS but today I installed the old Version 1.07 again and now it works just like before the update and the battery packs are discharged in the right order.I heard also Lenovo engineers and programmers read in this forum and so I decided to write about this problem here. Maybe it's possible to fix this bug in Version 1.10 with a new BIOS-Update. 05-01-2016:Today I installed the update again to see if it's a problem which doesn't appear every time and at first it was just fine, the internal one was discharged at first then the external one followed. But when I started to charge my thinkpad I noticed that now it's just here the other way round, so the external battery pack was charged at first and not the internal one as it would be normal. So I think it's really a bug in T460 BIOS-Version 1.10 which affects the Battery-Management.Read other answers

My computer is a year old. It was completely fine until I noticed it had stopped charging the battery. After some googling I found there might be a BIOS update I had missed. When trying to install the BIOS update I get a message saying I have to plug in my computer first (which it always is as the batter doesn't have a charge).
The BIOS update program says it wants to upgrade as follows:
BIOS Version : Current Ver.2.60 --> Updated Ver.3.20
EC Version : Current Ver.1.80 --> Updated Ver.1.90
OS: Windows 7
BIOS file I downloaded: bios-20110714132558
Is this a known issue with a fix available?
Are you sure that you have downloaded and used the right BIOS version!?
I read about the similar error message and finally the user used not compatible BIOS.
Furthermore the VAP (value added package) should be installed in order to update the BIOS!!! In you case I would recommend reinstalling this tool too.
But I?m not quite sure if BIOS update will help you to fix the battery issue?
Maybe you need to replace the battery?

Seems like internal battery memory was corrupted due to flashing interruption.
I assumed the root cause is internal software error.
I've tried the same on Windows 7/8/XP with all LnvBFU revisions (from v1.2 till v1.15) without any success.
But LnvBFU.exe still recognizes the battery, it still able to start flashing.
And I still have hope to install battery software correctly.
Dear Lenovo experts:

2. Please advise how can I get logs of LnvBFU to figure out what's wrong.
3. Please fix this issue in the next LnvBFU revision.

When I try to install KB3182373, a "Security Update for Microsoft Silverlight", Windows Update reports failure with the message "Code 643 Windows Update encountered an unknown error".
I ran WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab. It reported that "Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem".
What can I do to fix this? I'm running Windows 7 Professional.
I cannot update windows 10 to anniversary update. Every time I check for update, this came out
"We couldn't connect to the update service. We'll try again later, or you can check now. If it still doesn't work, make sure you're connected to the Internet."
I am connected to internet, Mozilla firefox is ok, utorrent is ok, everything is fine except windows update.
I have try disable the firewall, turn off windows defender, disable antivirus, none of it work.
I downloaded windows10 update assistant, did not work.
I don't know what is blocking windows update form connecting to internet.
Any suggestion? or perhaps solution.
