Hello guys, I have a problem with my beloved Thinkpad X260 relating to the CapLocks. Today the CapsLock screen indicator (native pop-up) has stopped showing up in my screen and it is quite an inconvenient as I need to do guess work when introducing password and working on emails. Is there anyway to make it appear or manage this? Thanks in advance for your help

Hi, I have both my internal and external batteries complaining about being plugged in but not charging. I used it all of yesterday on battery as normal and plugged it in at night but this morning when i started it up, it is complaining about the internal battery being at 0% and battery 2 stuck at 38% plugged in and not charging. I've followed the steps on this forum to uninstall the microsoft ACI from the device manager but neither of the batteries are still charging. Any help?

I have a problem with my Thinkpad x260. The battery is stuck at 96% with a message "plugged in, not charging". I'm pretty sure i haven't had this issue before. I don't have any thresholds for charging turned on, the battery always started charging even if it was at 99%.  I restarted a couple of times, fiddled with the adapter and battery - took it out and put it back in - nothing helped. How can I fix this and should I?I've looked up this issue on this forum, but haven't found a single clear reply on what to do with that

Initially my device was working just fine. Of late though (I don't know exactly when) I've noticed that only the internal battery discharges - then takes me to low power, plug in your charger, without discharging the external battery. I've installed all the latest updates for drivers and BIOS. With the laptop plugged in, the external battery is charging. But when I disconnect the AC it tells me the internal battery is 'in use' and gives me an estimated battery life based only on the single internal battery.

Hi Dell Community,
I have recently bought a used XPS 13 L322x in excellent condition with Windows 10 64-bit on it. However, power/charging light present in front of the trackpad is not working normally. When the laptop is ON, the light is white and when the laptops is charging, the light is orange. But when the Laptop is fully charged, the light does not change to white but it remains orange as long as the laptop is plugged in. When I put the laptop to sleep, its power indicator does not blink but instead the light turns OFF.
Latest BIOS and Drivers are already installed on the PC, Everything else is working fine. What should I do?
Any guidance would be appreciated.

A:XPS 13 Power/Charging Indicator Issue

If it's a Dell OEM adapter and correctly recognized (F2 at powerup to check), given that the system is about three years old - if the battery is original to the system, it's likely in need of replacement.

I just did a clean install of Windows 8 Pro on my 3 years old Asus Laptop.

Everything seems to be working fine, except for the battery indicator and some Asus Fn keys..

The battery cannot be charged, it keeps showing 0% charging even after a few hours.

I tried disabling and re-enabling the Microsoft ACPI-compliant battery driver, but to no avail.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks =)

Hello, where can I find the charging indicator on the Thinkpad Yoga? When I'm charging the machine (turned off) I don't see any light or other charging indicator. Is this normal? ThanksRegardsRango

A:Thinkpad Yoga Charging Indicator

Hi Rango,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to inform you that Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga doesn?t have a dedicated indicator for charging status.
 
The illuminated dots in the ThinkPad logo on the outer lid of your computer and on the palm rest show the system status of your computer:
 
? Blinks for three times: The computer is initially connected to the power.
? On: The computer is on (in normal mode).
? Off: The computer is off or in hibernation mode.
? Blinks fast: The computer is entering sleep or hibernation mode.
? Blinks slowly: The computer is in sleep mode.
 
Hope this clarified your query!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Hi everyone, Just received my T450s. Installed the rear battery, then plugged in the power.  On my old T510 I have an indicator showing me when I have power hooked up, and indicates the charging status of my battery.  I don't see anywhere on the T450s chassis that indicates the status of the battery charge. The only thing I will see is the dot on the "i" on the top cover, flash when I connect power.  Surpised there isn't a status indicator. Peter

A:Just got my T450s - no battery charging indicator?

No, there is no charging indicator on the T450s. By popular demand, Lenovo added one back to the T460s.

For me, the removal of an external charging indicator on the T440s, compared with earlier models, is a great misfortune waiting to happen.   Can I ask Lenovo to consider- making a new BIOS that flashes the external red LED in a disinctive way when the device is charging- producing an adapter tip, or a whole charger with a tip, that lights when succesfully delivering charge to the computer?

Hi. This is my first time posting on this forum, so go easy on me if possible. I recently just purchased a Lenovo Yoga 720 15" (the 4K version) online and have received it today. When I first unbox the laptop and charge it, the laptop charged to a 100%. However, after about 3 to 4 hours of leaving the laptop unplug and replugging the charger again, I was not able to charge the laptop. The laptops indicator lights was not flashing and the settings does not have battery conservation. I have checked and tried everything possible such as using different outlets and the one I originally used to charge the Yoga, but nothing works. I hope that by posting on this forum, someone can be able to help me out solve this problem. Also, the Yoga is at 29%, so attempting anything must be quick or the laptop will go "dead".

Normally, my X1 charging light indicator (LED that is next to the charging port) was solid orange when it's charging, and became solid green when the battery is full.However, recent days, I found out that my charging light indicator is gone, not any light showing. Except this, my X1 is still working fine. At first I thought about sending it to warranty site, but I rarely saw this charging light indicator flashed orange light once. So I think the physical LED is not broken (?) yet.Any suggestion ?Thx in advance.

Hi, I've got a Fujitsu Lifebook AH531 which won't boot up. No charging lights when plugged in either with or without the battery in the laptop. I have tried different power sockets. I can hear a tiny tiny high pitched noise coming from the charging pack, although I am very sensitive to noise and can often hear these coming from my chargers. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

I have a ThinkPad L380 Yoga (20M7). I recently updated BIOS to 1.21 through Lenovo Vantage and after that I have noticed the charging indicator turns off when connected to power. When I disconnect and then reconnect the power, it lights up for a second and turns off again. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance....

A:L380 Yoga charging indicator turns off after connecting to power

I think I figured out why the light turns off after connecting to power.  I have also set up the Battery Charging Threshold in Lenovo Vantage to 95%. So when the battery is charged to 95%, the light turns off as it no longer charges the battery and runs on direct AC power.

this is my first Lenovo computer, I bougth it form a friend that was not using the laptop because he lost the charging cord and was lazy to buy a new one, I bought the laptop for 300 bucks, and managed to find an used cord for 20 bucks, the battery was dead when i pluged it in, but it did turn on when I pressed the power button and the battery charging indicator light was blinking, just as normal, the problem arrived when I discharged it enough that windows asked me to plug in the cord, when I did nothing happend (the computer did not recognize the cord on the task bar and the battery light was not blinking), I was worried thinking that the cord was not good (since it is the 90w version), but to my surprise, the battery porcentage was rising up, but the time remaining was not rising, but when it reached 100%, the time refreshed and all is normal now. the only thing is that when I disconnect the cord it jumps form 100% to 95% instantly.. What should I replace?

I have an x230 and in the Power Manager I have "Custom charge threshold" enabled, with "start charging when below 15%" and "stop charging at 98%". In doing this I am assuming if I left the laptop plugged in the battery level will oscillate from 15%, to 98%, then drain away back down to 15%, recharge back to 98%...... etc. However, the battery is charging up to 98% and then simply remaining at 98%. I do not want this because it's bad for the battery health. I would like the battery to drain charge, as per what the Power Manager settings state. Anyone know why it's not? I am using Windows 7, 64-bit

Actually the battery will discharge very slowly below 98% until it eventually reaches 15% and then the recharge begins. The issue is that this discharge is extremely slow, perhaps 1% per week.
 
That said, if you want to maximize battery health, the charged threshold should be well below 98%. Some people recommend cycling between 20% and 80%. This is certainly better than going to 100% (or 98%.)
 
But Lenovo Battery Manager's default thresholds are something like charge at 60% and stop at 65%. If you run the X230 mostly on mains, I'd recommend Lenovo's very conservative thresholds.

When the laptop is turned off i can charge my laptop but when i try charging it while windows 8 is running it keeps flickering.
I have reinstalled windows 8 but that didnt fix the problem. And if i try to run the laptop on ac-power it will shut down when booting or shut down after 10-15min. Before this problem i was charging the laptop while working. I dont know if its the charger or the battery. I have measureed the charger and it is gives 19v all the time.

Hi ! Over the past two weeks I've spent my time troubleshooting why my recently (used) bought X240 is not charging the internal battery. Short timeline: 1. Bought used X240 in good condition but with dead internal and external battery - working well when using power supply.2. Came home and tested that thing -> both batteries show "0% - not charging" (with Win10Pro installed) *suprise, surprise*3. Ordered both new internal and external battery.4. External battery came 1.5 weeks ago. Installed it and worked like a charm (Battery 2 (external): X%, charging).5. Internal battery came the day before yesterday. Installed it and did not work -> "Battery 1: 53% - plugged in, charging - Battery 2: 6% - plugged in, not charging)6. Waited the recommended 6-12 hours like it was written in the "manual" to get it fully charged.7. Next morning -> Batterystatus unchanged (see point 5) ... It's stuck at 53%. Though the status says it's charging, it doesn't.8. Simply tried out what's going to happen when I pull the cable of the power supply -> Notebook instant off *hmmm*9. As the external battery was obviously blocked from charging by the internal (as it was not charged), I've taken out the internal battery again and et voila, external battery is charging again.I've tried to remove both batteries and perform the "Magic Trick" (press the main power switch for 30 secs) and I've also pushed the "reset" switch on the backside near the battery. Sadly without any result ;-(... Read more

i have been using this laptop for 2 years i get it from my friend .

from start it always charges battery upto 56 percent.

and i thought that there is problem in the battery cell and in few months battery backup becomes very short.

Yesterday i bought a new battery for my laptop but it is giving me the same problem which i had with my previous battery.

So this is not battery problem.



Things i have tried



1)Removing battery and uninstalling windows ac adaptor from Device manager.

2)Removing both battery and power Adaptor and pushing the power button for 20 sec if there is any residuel current.



Nothing has worked for me so far.

I would be thankful for your guidance.

Thank you

Windows 10 reporting that battery OK, adapter "plugged in, charging", but it is not charging. Battery is not pretty new (2015/12), but it's not used and AIDA64 reports good state of battery.
