z410 Battery Guage Reset Issues

Q: z410 Battery Guage Reset Issues

Hi Everyone, So after a few months of use with my z410 I decided to take the Energy Manager's (program) advice and preform the suggested Battery Guage Reset. After the reset I have had a terrible experience. The z410 will at times not boot up on battery alone, and when I plug the charger in it will tell me the battery is dead, but shorlty after it everything is running it will tell me i have 100% battery. Now - if I were then to "pull the plug" the computer will act normally and get great battery perfromance...HOWEVER - if I plug ghe charger back in, the battery drops back down to 0%. I don't know what to do - please help...I can't win right now with this computer. I love it, but can't trust it. Please advise - please, and thank you!

Hi shoosh1,

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

Turn OFF the computer.
Remove the AC charger
Press the OKR Button
Once the scren powers up , Stay on that screen and let the computer overnight on that screen until it turn itself off because of power loss in battery.

Now plug the AC back and charge it till 100%

Let me know if this worked for you
Thanks

My Yoga 3 pro is still a nightmare and so far is unusable given onging battery problems. However I digress. The thing wouldn't charge past 72% and took 2 days to get to that from 51%. So yet again I searched the net hoping to find something new and I noted yet another updated battery guage realeased only a few days ago. I also noted that someone had suggested deleting the windows battery drivers in Device Manager after disconnecting the battery which I figured couldn't hurt so went ahead. Once I reconnected the battery, plugged it in and waited for it to download the battery drivers, I noted it didn't install the ACPI component. Now lo and behold, I have no battery guage at all. In fact it says "The battery is not used", but of course it is. I then tried the latest battery guage driver but no improvement. Can anyone help in this age old problem? Cheers

My computer is a 7 year old IBM Thinkpad R31 series, factory installed battery still in place. I rarely, if ever, use battery power, am always connected to an AC outlet. Battery power usually stays at 98% but today it has dropped to 0%. I am a computer novice so I don't know what this sudden drop means, will I damage my computer by continuing to use it? Should I purchase a new battery?

Help will be appreciated. Thank you.

I have a strange issue. I have a Lenovo T60 laptop and I am experiencing problems with the power management/power guage.

It will often show the battery not installed (power gauge is a greyish-white color with dashed lines) or it shows a red X. It does not matter if I am on AC power or on Battery power, it will show the full range of power, battery level, not installed, or an error.

I have searched Lenovo's site and I seem to remember seeing an FAQ about this, but now that I need it, I cannot find it.

What can I check or do to stop this? While it is annoying, I am not sure if I am having a battery problem or not. I did check my battery on Lenovo's site to see if it was recalled and it is not.

I do appreciate any help that any one can give me.

Thanks!

Hi,Have been using Ideapad Z410 from past 6 months.  From past week the Laptop shuts down without warning, and the battery level is at 99% or 100%.  Only when the unit shutsdown, and when I start up again, that the battery indicator starts from 0 and goes to 99% or 100% and stays there.  I have also doen the Battery Meter Reset, but of no benefit.What is the problem, and what should I do.Should I claim under warranty ?

A:Idepad Z410 battery always at 99% or 100%

I wouldn't expect much of an answer from them, the same happens to the Z510 I have and it happens to the Z500 models before it, they'll tell you to send it in under warranty but that will not solve the problem as it will happen again after a few months and I need the laptop for work, I didn't buy it so that after half a year I would have to send it away for 2-3 weeks, I bought the thing because it is needed here. They need a battery firmware update but that too is too hard for them to do. These problems are being experienced by people worldwide and I am seriously considering reporting them to watchdog here in the UK. They should not be shipping laptops that have known issues and then offer no fix.

I have to replace the battery in my Ideapad Z410.  Lenovo customer service tells me to contact product support, but my machine is out of warranty.  The model number on the back of my computer is 20292. I have tried entering my model# on the Lenovo website, so I can find a compatible replacement, and I get a message that they have no info for my model number. I have tried major retailers, and their customer support cannot tell me what is compatible. I just want to buy a %$#@ compatible battery, and it seems like no one can tell me what will be compatible.  Help! Thanks.

I have had my Lenovo IdeaPad Z410 since around January, and I have just recently expierienced the problem of the battery dropping to zero. What happens is my battery will be draining at a normal pace then all of a sudden my laptop will shut down and will not go back on as it thinks the battery is dead. If it is plugged when this happens then the orange battery low light will begin flashing and the message goes from saying "Fully charged (100%)" to "1% remaining (plugged in, charging)". This is quite annoying as I cannot take my laptop anywhere without fear of it randomly dying on me. I would assume I wouldn't need a new battery after only having the laptop for a few months. Also, if you are not familiar with this model, the battery is built in internally so I cannot try removing it and putting it back in myself. Any advice would be appreciated; I'd rather not deal with Lenovo's customer support unless I absolutely have to.

A:Lenovo IdeaPad Z410 Battery Suddenly Drops From 100% to 0%

hi LordMothim,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Based from your findings, it's possible that:
- the battery circuit inside is not working to unload the charge, or
- one of the battery cells have already reached its life span
- the chip that handles how the battery gets charge/discharge and checks the charge level of each battery cell (both are controlled by a firmware) is malfunctioning.
 
Batteries degrade overtime due to heat and daily use. If you're still under warranty, I recommend you contact lenovo and report the issue as you most likely need a replacement battery.

Hello.  I would be grateful if someone can help me with solving the following battery issue.
My XPS13 9343 (with Windows 10, 2015 model) recently stopped charging when connected.  I have conducted BIOS test, stress test, system test, battery test recommended on Dell forum, but could not find any issues.
Then ran device manager and checked & updated drivers, tested for virus, scanned the system, but could not detect any issues.
Lights on AC adopter is on (static) , and the front light under the touch pad turn on white briefly when connected then turn off immediately when plugged in (when disconnected, orange light comes on).
It seems charging is disabled...I might have touched keys without realizing (I checked whether there were hot key to enable/disable charging, but could not find one).
Since it is an ultrabook, and the battery has no issues, I have not opened the back to take out the battery.
I brew into the connecting hole, but it did not solve the issue.
Please help!

Hey there,
Yes you read it correctly: I have just received mine, which I purchased because of battery life and overheating and fan noise issues on the Dell XPS 13 i7 7th gen. The 8th gen was supposed to have solved all the issues the previous version was plagued with...
Well... I unboxed it, loaded all of my softwares, installed all the WIndows updates, Dell drivers, you name it. Charged it and started using it. When I unplugged the power cord, first estimate was 4hrs on the Windows battery indicator. Then I installed BatteryBar to have a more reliable estimator. Same.
Later on, I discovered a very strong and very loud fan. Unsurprisingly, the underneath was burning hot.
Got the support team on the phone, whilst I was talking with them, the fan kicked in and I even could give them a glimpse of how loud that was over the phone.
Has any of the lucky owners of the XPS 13 i7 8th gen come across similar issues? 
Sometimes, I am just baffled by the world there is between the promise and the reality....

A:XPS 13 8th gen i7 16GB RAM QHD+ Battery Issues 4hrs battery life tops

A brand new system may have an unusually high level of background tasks running simultaneously, such as Windows and other applications checking for and downloading updates, Windows monitoring your usage to optimize technologies such as PreFetch for your usage patterns, etc.  You might want to conduct a battery test after things have settled in a bit more.  The QHD+ display takes 2-3 hours off of the expected battery life, but you should still get 7-8 hours under normal use.  Then again, if you're heavy on WiFi and max out display brightness, you'll get less than that.  The fact that the fans are kicking on also suggests there's an unusually high level of background activity running, so check Task Manager to see if you can find out what's responsible for that.

So, I bought this top of the line Latitude 12 M7 with 4K screen, and that was a biggest mistake for all...
The battery life is like 2h 2o min, and that horrible keyboard with a stand behind the screen is not user friendly. I can't even use it on my lap, and thank you for some "horrible" re-engineering design, the Latitude 12 doesn't have a keyboard like the 11 or 13 has! So no built in battery to power the tablet, and no regular laptop style closing lid. Why??? Why someone design something backwards ?
By any chance the Latitude 11 keyboard with the built in battery would fit with the 12? Or in the near future they will realize this model is way overpriced, and the battery life is a joke ?
I am at the point to sell this, forget about I7 and 4K and just buy a Latitude 13 6 gen M5 with a working battery life. Any of you have a suggestion, what I should do? Is any other model recommendation with size of 11-13 , with a decent battery life?

Suddenly, the battery meter shows a very low battery level (5% ?) and an error message says I might have to change the battery. This after two years of usage only.
Before buying a new battery I want to try a battery reset.

https://www.techwalla.com/articles/how-to-reset-a-laptop-battery says there is a battery reset button. I don't see it on the R930-1C8.

Any idea how where to find a reset button on a R930 ? Does it exist ?

The user manual says about resetting on p.5-6
Fully discharge the battery by leaving it in the computer with the power on until the system automatically turns it self off.Connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack in the computer and to the power network.Charge the battery until the battery indicator glows green.Repeat these steps two or three times until the battery recovers normal capacity

Did you reset a worn-out battery and did the reset solve the problem ?

I checked voltage of my charger and it seems to be fine.Anyone have an idea of what might be the cause?Thanks in advance.

Hi Andyy,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with system not booting in your Lenovo Z410 laptop.
 
Try to charge the battery for sometime and try to power on the system, also check with different adapter. If still the issue persist then it might be issue with the motherboard please visit the nearest service center.
 
Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I?m sure they will be a great help.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists!

Dont use Battery Gauge Reset ! Only if you have a battery you can throw it away you can try perform this action , otherwise if you have a battery lets say 40% life time remaning and you perform this action ,you'll see from 25whr it will drop down to 20whr and also the capacity ! I am saying this becouse i try ( like a full) on a baterry 80% lifetime and 30%lifetime. Its a program made by Lenovo to drop down your battery in the eventuality you will buy a New battery from them! The only good news is if you keep your old battery and if you manage to change the cell inside the battery will perform better ! But still remaning the little motherboard inside the every battery wich till right now i dont know to reset it! On every battery i have on my laptops I reuse the cell inside for other device fitting with 3,7v LiIon or multiple, like a meteo wireless station , factory power 2x1,5v AA,right now work better (and LONGER) with 2cel battery 3,7v from a lenovo battery !

Hi, guys!

I am in need of some help here. Mine is a Compaq Presario 2100 series Laptop, and I've been using it since it was new (some 3-4 years ago). My battery pack provided me with up to two hours of power, of course, depending on use, and open applicaions, until about two weeks ago...

These past two weeks it has been behaving very strangely: it began marking 100% charged, but provided with about only 30 mintes of power... this week it came down to 10 minutes; tday I couldnot get it past 4 minutes. It doesn't even has the power necessary to hibernate or suspend.

... I understand battery's normal wear and tear, but I use it with a lot of care: I discharge it fully at least once a week, I calibrate it using a Batery Optimizer tool... and I believe this reduction in power capacity is not normal; but rather excesive; I had an older laptop (Texas Instruments) which lasted with me for some 5 and a half years, and the battery could last for an hour and a half by the time I sold it...

The Compaq Presario battery has a power indcator built on it, and it shows 5 leds which lite green, yellow, or remain off, depending on the charge. When fully charged, this gauge will lite in yellow (meaning low charge), on the first led, and green (indicating full charge) on the other 4 leds.

I believe this is an indicatr of the battery stuck on charging maybe only one cell, and leaving the others empty. Another indication for this is that it used to take a long time to charge, an... Read more

My laptop was working fine while i was playing (league of legends to be exact) when suddenly my fps went down greatly then i found out the problem was my laptop was running on 800MHz (using realtemp) and won't go up. I could not find the problem much less the solution. When i couldn't find anything i tried the one key recovery to revert to factory settings, but still the problem persisted. I found on the net that most people with this problem used throttle stop so i did too. It was working fine but then my charger broke (my battery is dead too, broke around a week or two before my charger). I thought that my charger was causing the throttling because my laptop worked great again after buying a new charger. But that lasted only for a day. It is now throttling again at 800MHz. I am afraid that something will break again but i can't seem to find the problem. temperature is consistently around 40-60 degrees C. I hope someone knows or previously had this problem that found a solution. or at least knows exactly what the problem is.

Hi dlyssy84 See if you can borrow a similar charger for your model (just check that the power input/output is the same). Let it "charge" for a while, then try to run it on battery. A friend once had the same problem on an old Aspire 5315 (I think) latop. The charger had enough power to run the laptop, but not to charge it as well. He bought a universal charger that solved the problem! Obviously, if the problem persists, then the battery will be at fault & will need replacing.

I have to unplug it from wall soccet and plug it again to works. I think that AC power supply have any high current safety system and power off the voltage.  Maybe problem is in battery.

Hi all I have a Flex 2 from 2014 experiencing the issue where the battery gauge stays at 3 (or 1) percent. I tried to download Power Management, and then Energy Management, but got a message 'This system is not supported or is not confgured for battery firmware update.' The machine is running Windows 10, 64-bit. Is there a solution to perform a battery gauge reset on this machine, or is it no longer supported? Thanks in advance for your helptroy

My computer was running extremely slow so I factory reset it but I had fallen asleep while it was resetting and must have knocked the charger out and it died while it was at 64% reset now it is on a seemingly endless loop of restarting every time it reaches 64% I have checked other websites which have told me to press either F2 or F11 which do not work. Is there any way I can fix this?

OK, it's a Acer Aspire 9300. Someone brought it to me, they thought the battery had died and bought a new one. So I discovered that Acer doesn't really have anyway to calibrate a battery...either know with a new battery you really shouldn't have to. So the situation is that if I take the new battery out, and unplugged the AC Adapter, help the power button for 20 seconds like the acer website says to...plug in the ac power and its fine. I put in the new battery and press power, nothing. Plug in the ac power and it boots up, but...device manager sees the battery, I try to open power management and acer has this thing called eManagement and stuff that's supposed to help with these things and then I get an error message saying index is out of range...I'm at a loss and the acer website to even email their technical support isn't working. any suggestions would be great.

uninstall all acer power management software. just look what the windows will tell you about battery. the battery assembled with bq2085 battery controller. it's quite smart and it will do all work for you

I have performed the battery reset procedure by pressing the reset button on the underside of the laptop. The computer will only remain on for a minute or two before randomly turning off. The computer has no issue while the power adapter is plugged in. Any other suggestions?

A:The battery reset procedure will not solve my powe...

Hi dlyssy84 See if you can borrow a similar charger for your model (just check that the power input/output is the same). Let it "charge" for a while, then try to run it on battery. A friend once had the same problem on an old Aspire 5315 (I think) latop. The charger had enough power to run the laptop, but not to charge it as well. He bought a universal charger that solved the problem! Obviously, if the problem persists, then the battery will be at fault & will need replacing.

I have an Acer Veriton X490G,with Core i3 cpu,4 gig RAM,running a windows 7 32 bit...now this machine requires the CMOS battery to be reset all the time it to boot. Otherwise it doesn't seem like there's any form of power that's going to the motherboard. How do i go about fixing this?

I have a problem with my battery gauge which doesn't seem to show the right battery level and at this point my laptop just dies with no warning when the gauge is at around 40 %. The battery gauge reset doesn't help at all. I've even tried with a new replacement battery, but the results are the same.I hope there is a way to fix this.
