My z510 shows that plugged in, not charging.I tried to reinstall energy manger and to update the battery firmware.Also tried to uninstall Microsoft APCI but with battery, for some reason my notebook doesn't boot without battery.The only way it can charge is when I change to conservation mode and then back.

Hello. First of all, thank you for taking the time to view my post and potentially help me out. So the problem is that my laptop will not start. I was using my laptop here one day and it was working fine, but it was unable to charge for some reason and ended up shutting down so I went to bed. The next morning I tried turning it on, but it was dead. I have tried a different charger as my sister also has a lenovo laptop, but this did not work either. I would think if the battery was the problem, the laptop should still be working with the charger in? I have tried calling support line several times with no answer, the warranty has gone out and I forgot where i bought the laptop sadly. Really frustrated over here, and any help is highly appreciated!

Hi CuriousFox , 
 
Greetings.
 
To isolate fastest is to have another battery to use or charging the original battery on a known working compatible laptop.
The power checkout guide of the hardware machine manual provides steps to check battery charging integrity (example form Z510 manual page 21) .
 
You can also try plugging the laptop but not turning it on for 1-2 hours checking if there would be changes with the battery indicator LED.
 
Would it be the same using similar energy manager and operating system that came originally with the machine?
How is the battery health and battery report?
 
Update us how it goes.
 
Regards

I have an XPS 9550 6th Gen running Windows 10 (Just over 1 year, out of warranty).
The issue is when the charge plug is plugged in and hovering over the battery icon it says that battery is charging.  However the battery is not charging but discharging until the laptop switches off.  The only way for the battery to charge again is to deplete the battery until the laptop is unresponsive when the power button is pushed to switch lap top on.  Once there is no residual power in the battery it will start charging again to 100% after which the cycle repeats, discharge.
Things I have tried.
Latest Bios update - no change
Another A/C charger - worked ok for a few days
Replaced battery - no change
Bios settings - reset to default (info related to battery and A/C charge reports all good)
F12 - Dell diagnostics, reports all good
When Battery is disconnected the laptop works normally
The laptop charge socket seems tight and secure
I have searched the internet exhaustively but have not found this same issue reported.  The only feasible way I can use the laptop is to disconnect the battery.
Can anyone suggest anything?
I would also like to disable the battery instead of having to open it up to disconnect, is this possible?
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

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 battery all of a sudden won't charge. The computer works with remaining battery (when AC is not plugged in). The computer works with the battery removed when plugged in. But if battery is in and the computer is plugged into the outlet, it does not charge the battery, nor does it recognize that it is plugged in. It only tries to run on the remaining battery. WHen the battery is in and the computer is using the AC adapter, I get a blinking white light next to the plug for the AC adapter. I have two separate batteries, and it is doing the same thing on both batteries. I have tried deleting the  Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery and the Microsoft AC Adapter in the Device Manager section. It didn't fix my problem. I also used HP Support Assistant's HP Battery Check diagnostic tool. It says my "battery is functioning correctly, but the AC adapter is not attached. To completely test your battery, please attache the AC Adapter." The strange thing is, my AC adapter is plugged in, but the computer thinks it is not attached. So it is not recognizing my AC adapter when the battery is in. But does recognize and use the AC adapter when the battery is removed.  Does anyone have any recommendations for a fix? Thank you!

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:

Hi Kevinottokoit,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
The hardware manual provides the steps for check operational charging that you can perform her in page 21-22.
 
Taking note of the same battery indicator (I am expecting that is is blinking amber for less 20% charge), keep the computer powered off and connect the ac charger for 2-3 hours without turning it on. We are expecting the battery indicator to go from amber to white to know if the battery does charge.
 
Other wise you may want to check a known good battery to test the machine or use the same battery on another compatible model to verify if the battery really needs to be replaced.
 
I hope this helps answer your query.
Update us how things go.

I purchased a used Toshiba Satellite L305-D, it did not come with a power adapter. I purchased a new power adapter but soon learned the battery wasn't very good so I purchased a new battery. I shut the laptop down, put in the new battery and let it charge overnight. In the morning, it showed 100% charged. In an effort to "condition" the battery, I let it run on battery power until it shut down, then plugged it in to recharge. It first charged to 40% when I noticed it was not charging any longer. I unplugged it, plugged it back in and it started recharging again. It stopped again at 62%. I can't get it keep charging to 100%.

The system shows that it's plugged in, but not charging. When I unplug and replug back in the battery charge light will come on for a short time, then go out. Any suggestions?

My Lenovo G710 works fine when it is plugged in and the battery is removed. With the battery installed and the AC adapter plugged in, the battery isn't charging. Note that I do NOT get the message "Plugged in and not charging" from Windows when I hover the mouse over the battery level indicator. Rather, there is no indication that the laptop is plugged in at all. The battery level indicator does not have the plug icon on it. However, as mentioned before, if I remove the battery completely and plug the laptop in with the AC adapter, the machine works fine. After the battery was completely dead (the machine wouldn't even turn on with the battery installed), I tried leaving the laptop plugged in with the battery installed overnight with the machine turned off. The next morning, I started the machine, and the battery level indicator in Windows showed the battery level at 1%.  Is this most likely a problem with the motherboard, the battery, the AC adapter, or something else?

I received my new P72 a few days ago. It would not power up on just the battery so I plugged in the power supply that came with it (230 Watt) and it started right up. The battery gauge in the taskbar showed "0% available (plugged in, charging)".  It was like that for the next day and a half while I continued setting it up with everything from the old P70. The P72 was attached to AC for over 24 hours by that time.I eventually got to Lenovo Vantage and followed some leads in the forum about resetting the battery status to more accurately reflect the status.  I initiated the 'Battery Gauge Reset' from Lenovo Vantage and this screenshot (I manually added the text from the taskbar icon in the black rectangle to the screenshot...)  didn't change for four hours. I hit the red 'Stop' button and continued scanning the forum.I disconnected the battery and reconnected it with no change to the "0% available (plugged in, charging)" for a few hours. I thought that the connection 'seated' a little better but I'm not sure. I unchecked the "Airplane Power Mode" selections in Lenovo Vantage (hint from the forum). No change.  Then I disabled the "Battery Charge Threshold" setting. No change.  I added a second 'power plan' (High performance) to the 'Balanced' plan and selected the new one (can only run on AC anyway).

Recently I noticed that the amber LED on my HP Probook 650 G1 flashing constantly, even when the laptop is powered off.   The System Tray battery indication is 100%, fully charged, when on AC power and 100% on battery power shortly after undocking.    I find the Probook won't power up if AC power is not available (no response when pressing power button) but remains powered when I remove it from the docking station.    Have the electronics that control this LED flashing and power up when not on AC gone bad?    Is this an indication of other failure? thanks
