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.)

I am a Yoga 700-14ISK user for 2 years. And I had encounter serveral issues with this laptop before (and the service center helped me to fix them) However, now there is an issue I just have now - my battery is draining fast like 1% lost per 2-3 min for light usage (browsing on Chrome or doing my schoolwork either on Microsoft Office or Google Drive) I suspected it was due to my battery wear level. However, as I monitored it, I realised it keep fluctuating (from 19.64% to 42.02%) until I re-calibrate which gives me 38.51% and then 38.71% after a charge to 60%. Is it possible the battery wear level can cause the quick drain in battery?  Is this battery wear level normal? I would also like to point out that I had the battery changed over a year ago and I normally used my laptop for schoolwork and gaming (occasionally now after realising the issue.) I am also going to have an internship (at least 6 months) from July so I am very worried that my laptop can't last long especially its battery. Hence, should I go to a Lenovo service center and request for a battery replacement? Please give me any possible reasons on why the laptop battery starts to drain fast and its battery wear level sharp increase, and also possible solutions for these issues. I would like to know more about it in order to sustain my laptop at least for a year.

Hi guys, less than a month ago I received my Lenovo Yoga 14" (the latest version with the i5 7200u).Well, I have noticed that the battery wear levels are increasing at some crazy high pace. After one month of extremely light use (mostly AC plugged), the wear levels according to HW monitor and Battery Info is already at 22%, as the full charge capacity is already down to 41500 mWh from 53000 mWh.The battery life I would say it's still pretty good, but I am wondering if this is normal? I don't want to replace the battery after 6 months of use, so either this number is incorrect for whatever reason, or something is really off here.Many thanks for your support.

Assuming both are genuine Lenovo. All dimensions except height (which noone bothered to measure) - are the same; even if the 370 battery is slightly higher and won't fit without lower case modification - it's nothing a rotary tool can't fix. 370 battery: 15.28V 51Wh (FRU 01AV433)260 battery: 15.2V 44Wh (FRU 00HW027) Is there any particular reason why it definitely won't work? I'm really on the verge of ordering one and trying for myself, but I'm not sure how does embedded controller (EC) determine if the battery plugged is correct,  and not really want to waste time if the idea is doomed to failure because some technical quirk I am not aware of - hence the question.  Why: while 370 is newer, it has glossy PWM display which ain't bonded with digitizer vs bonded matte PWM-free on 260. 260's weakest spot, on the other hand, is poor battery life - larger 370 battery could definitely resolve this problem. I'm bored until newer Thinkpads are introduced at CES 2018 anyway - so why not give it a try, if there is any chance it may work.

Hello, I bought a Yoga 260 about 3 month ago (i5-6300, 16gb ram, Windows 10 64 bit);I'm happy with the overall performance, but I'm far from working the announced 7 hours of work on the battery. 3 to 4 would be more representative of may experience, even in "eco" mode.Any idea how I could further check if someting's wrong, draining my battery ? Or would it be possible to extend the battery, or find a bigger capacity that would suit the machine, even at some cost (price, of course, but weight, or "foldability") ?Thanks for your advice.

What sort of battery life are you guys getting with this laptop? (The one with usb 3.0 ports and 6000 series intel).  Of the countless issues I've had with this (mostly driver related), battery issue is one of the biggest. I can't seem to get more than 5 hours normal usage. I've got the screen at 50%, keyboard backlight at its lowest setting, and some music in the background. CPU usage averages below 20%. I've got several tests I tried:1. I have chrome minimized with ~8 tabs (nothing playing or anything), and excel minimized. The only large process was Google Drive downloading. I wasn't doing anything on the computer. That gives me 3 hours, 49 minutes of battery life (94% remaining).  2. Browsing a forum while listening to music in youtube. (Chrome eating so much ram Windows is at 6gb used just with 10 tabs open.). 3 hours, 32 minutes battery life (90% remaining) 3. A stress test, Aida64 running a CPU stress test. 2 hours 27 minutes battery life (87 remaining).  Here's what's even more interesting. Battery wear level. Based on Window's battery report, I lost over 9% battery life wear since when I got the laptop (January this year I think). So 6 months. Here's the catch, it's more like 5 months because those first 5 months is when I used the laptop for college. After the semester ended, I pretty much stopped using it. This means that if I used the laptop frequently like in college(which wasn't even that often), I would wear the battery 20% ev... Read more

Hi, the below is a copy-and-paste of a reply I posted in another thread.  That thread was discussing Gen 2 battery run-time (not "life") and I had done a little testing on my Gen 1 for reference:
 
https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/questions-about-TP-Yoga-series/m-p/3704325
 
Not sure how directly this applies to the Gen 2 , but I'm doing some testing with the Gen 1 X1Y this evening.
 
Letting things run long enough for the battery gauge to stabilize:
 
Thunderbird: reading email: 9-10 hours, maybe a little more.
 
FireFox: poking around the forums:  6-9 hours depending on content and how fast I'm navigating pages.
 
Skype video session:  maybe 4 hours.
 
This is an i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB NVMe SSD with the 2560x1440 non-OLED display @ ~ half brightness - which is plenty bright for evening surfing.
 
In my use case(es) it's an 8-10 hour machine for the most part.  I don't use Chrome so I can't speak to that.
 
FWIW,

Hi, welcome to the forums.
 
I do not know a solution for your problem, but I want to suggest you some trial an error to see if it can be software related issue.
 
1) Check the Lenovo Settings and see if it asks you to update the System Interface Foundation drivers.
2) Check the support site and just in case check that you have the latest BIOS and the latest "Lenovo Power Management Driver for Windows 10 "
 
After that check the "Lenovo Settings" and give it a try turning on the option of "extended the battery life", set it to a 80% and give it some time for it to discharge. After that disable that feature to see if the battery charges back again.
 
Also on "Lenovo Settings", on the same "battery/power" page it has a "restablish" options, maybe you can also try that later.
 
Sorry that this is just some trial and error, but it is what it cames to my mind right now.
 
Regards

About a month ago, I finally received my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 460 and I couldn't be happier with it. Every was running great so far, however monday last week, the device suddenly went into standby mode out of the blue. After I started it again, the battery had dropped from around 70% to 3% and soon it died completely.I recharged it, laptop was running fine again. Around 2h later, the same problem again. Standby, battery drop, dead. I tried everything software-wise, from driver to OS updates to battery recalibration, however with no luck. Additionally, the 'Lenovo Settings' app tells me that 'battery recharge has been deactivated due to high temperature' and 'the capacity is only like 2,93% percent'.Now, to me the temperature of the laptop feels pretty average and doesn't really increase while in use. Also, I opened it up and checked air flows and such, but everything looks fine.Could the battery be dead? Anyone experiencing the same issues?

A:ThinkPad Yoga 460 - Battery dead?

artganify,I have had similar problems as well. My laptop has become a desktop for the moment being. One night it was taking ages to charge (about 5 hours to charge to 30%). I then got it up to 66% and thats it. I called up Lenovo support and told them that my laptop wasn't charging and was flickering between "No Battery Detected" then "Charging". I was told to run the battery down completely which I did. Ever since then the battery hasn't charge past 3%  I called up Lenovo once again and they said that they would send me an external battery to test if the internal battery is faulty (I'm pretty certain its only the battery). So fingers crossed. So to reply to your question, I am experiencing similar issues.

Have you tried resetting the battery? Power off the laptop. Underneath the laptop, located in the middle is a small pin hole. Using a straightened paper clip or sim card remover pin, press the pin hole. Power on the laptop and check again. As the battery is integrated, there is no physical way to take it out and put it back in. The pin hole (reset) mirrors this process.

It isn't a problem.  The battery has a nearly full charge, so the charging turns off so as not to "cook" the battery.  If you unplug the battery and let it run down a while, then plug it in, it will charge.  I tend not to charge mine until it gets under about 70%.  A Lithium battery slowly degrades after a certain number of charges.

Hello all, Please forgive if this has been posted. I couldn't find an answer: I purchased a replacement for my battery, but on installation it wouldn't charge. I tried disabling AC and battery in device manager. I tried complete shut down and reboot. Couldn't get the new battery to be recognized. The old battery still works a bit, so I'm not in serious trouble. but with the battery going on a few years old, I wanted to replace before it left me stranded. Is there something that must be done to tell the system (Win 8.1 x 64 pro) to recognize that the battery is new, and to reflash the battery firmware and reset the driver? Simply replacing the battery didn't quite get the job done. Thank you for any response.

Hope someone have seen this and found a way of fixing it. The Thinkpad Yoga 14 was bought new from BestBuy, with Windows 10 already installed. A few days ago, after I finally allow Windows 10 to install the "update", the battery started to "disappear", ie the power icon has a "X" and with a message "No battery is detected". The battery driver has a June 21 date, a months after the purchase. So this must be the driver brought in by the Win10 update (note: this is not from Win7, Win8 etc to Win10, but an update of Win10). Removing and reinstalling battery driver did not fix the problem as the same driver is installed again. I also cannot roll back the version as Windows does not show any previous version. I also cannot "restore" as Windows does not actually restore the system: Windows shows the update still installed even after it was "restored" to a state prior to the "update". I also tried to install Lenovo's new power management driver. No help either.  Any suggestions, other than to returning the computer? This is for my son. He'll start his school right now! Thanks!

Battery drain in sleep mode is excessive compared to other Windows laptops. Leaving the office with a full charge, not powering on the unit at home, I come in the next day and the battery is 89%. Same scenario over a weekend - Leave the office with 100% charge, come in Monday morning, having not used the laptop and the battery is 78%. This has nothing to do with the fancy OLED or anything - it wasn't turned on. Hope this can be addressed in a BIOS update. I really want to love this laptop but the short battery life compared to advertised specs and the excessive battery drain while sleeping leave me with mixed feelings.

By coincidence the management software also kindly informed me that it could manage the battery better and stop it wearing out by only charging up to 90% - fair enough, but don't treat me like a muppet and disable it without any way to get it back. Tons of Windows 10 updates today (after not being able to use it for a few weeks) but still no battery. I tried F1 BIOS but nothing there to enable the battery (only to disable it). This is frankly a joke - timing shows it's due to the firmware update because the battery was fine and lasted a couple of hours right before. In 25 years of countless laptops, have never had this problem - batteries weaken gradually but don't suddenly lock up and require a paid replacement suddenly. How do we run down our original battery properly before polluting the planet? Phil
