A:LENOVO IDEAPAD Z510 BATTERY PROBLEM

Hi Mukesh1967,
 
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with battery in your Lenovo Z510 laptop.
 
Try to perform the battery gauge reset, to perform the gauge reset go to energy manager and select the maintenance and guide and select gauge reset option and check if the battery charges.
 
Also uninstall the ACPI, to uninstall go to device manager select batteries option and right click on the Microsoft ACPI compliant control method battery and select uninstall and restart the machine and check for the issue.
 
Best regards,

dear sir, my name is nikhil in my laptop z510 ideapad i am facing battery problem it is not showing correct battery % and also not show batterey low warning message and it is stable at one position 99% please sir help me out from this problem .many of them his having this same problem please give some battery firmware update so to resolve this problem.it is not a hardware problem because it started from two days before previously it is working fine but now it is not working          I purchased the z510 last  july and while the battery life wasn't great on it now it has stopped working altogether. I have tried every conceivable fix for it from the forums here and none has worked. The problem that I am having is that the battery is stuck at 99% while charging and when it is off charge it will stay on for half an hour and the shut off hard without warning, it has caused me to lose progress in work. The battery gauge reset is no longer working either as it was on for hours and just kept showing 99%. I would appreciate a response back. This seems to be a problem with this make of laptop as far as Ican see.

I have a laptop which is mentioned above. Had it for almost 3 years now and suddenly shut off while I was using it. It would not charge nor it would turn on. Tried the power reset thing which holds the power button for multiple seconds but to no avail.  Then went to a service center saying motherboard burned up. Such a shame since I really like the laptop and I spent  lot of money for it since I bought the i7 core version. I was hesitant to buy other brands before actually purchasing this lenovo laptop. I have a netbook (not a lenovo brand) which I had for 7 years now. But my almost 1000dollars z510 laptop broke and it hasn't been a FULL 3 YEARS?  WTH LENOVO! And motherboard replacement is VERY expensive. I'm really STRESSED about this. And ALL my files are there. Photos, work documents etc. I can;t stressed enough about how disappointed I am.

Dear Lenovo, After perusing the recent 2016/2017 comments by multiple users on similar posts about Ideapad Z510 battery from across locations/countries - it appears that the firmware that you had issued last year - has somehow got overwritten / superceded maybe in either late 2016  or early 2017 by some more recent/latest updates. I am writing from India and facing the same probem that the battery is showing 100% and then going off almost immediately. This probem had fortunately got solved last year when you had issued a firmware update - but now when i am trying to use the same files again - it basically conveys that "no battery available to update" because that particular firmware is already applied on our laptop. Hence, can you please release newer firmware update for this same issue -  using a z510 system having current till-date updates for different OS - win 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 - same way as you have released for thinkpad series of laptops too on the weblink - http://support.lenovo.com/in/en/downloads/ds001322 Come to think of it - that if a fully working battery is being "prompted" as weak and "need to buy" - but actually is a fully functioning hardware - isnt it a bit of a letdown for your users??? - what to say of  some who might have already bought and replaced with newer replacement batteries - which is actually a completely avoidable cost? I am sure you need to resolve this issue soon so as to restore c... Read more

I've had the same mouse since 2011-ish, and have been using it with my Windows 7 since then. However, when I connected it to my new Windows 8 laptop, things have changed.
Turning on the mouse once or twice renders the mousepad useless. This sucks because my battery is dying and I can't find a new one, so I'm replacing that but I want to fix the other bug too.

Is there anything I can do to make the wireless mouse stop turning off the mousepad?

That would be correct. Unless you go into Mouse properties in the Control panel and change the behavior, standard behavior will always be to disable Touchpad, while external mouse is attached.

I have a one year old Ideapad 500S - 141SK with mousepad problems.  Everything worked well until recently, when the mousepad suddenly got far too sensitive.  I have changed to as little sensitive as possible, but this does not work - it seems like the sensitivity is the same regardless of the settings. I can see in other forums that deactivating the "click-funktion" may solve this problem.  But I do not find any place to do this...   I also have an other problem with the pad:  Sometimes it seems like there is "sand" under the pad.  I don't know if there is a connection between these two errors.  A theory:  May be small particles (crumbles etc?) gets under the mousepad because the sealents are not good enough? Anyone else who have experienced this and know why? I would be very thankful if anyone out there could help me

Did you install the touchpad drivers from HP? If so, you may have to play around with some settings for it in control panel. If yo did the upgrade isntall its supposed to keep all your drivers, but sometimes it doesn't retain all of them.

Hi, I got a Lenovo Ideapad 110 for Christmas, and the zoom option on the mouse/touchpad is driving me insane. I have gone to mouse properties, and I do not see an option to stop this. I want to disable pinch zoom! Is that not possible?!  Another note: Less than a week after this computer was bought for me, the actual buttons on the mousepad stopped working. I could not right-click. I took it back to the place i bought it since it's under warranty, and the man had to plug in a USB mouse and reset the entire mouse properties, but the problem of zooming is still there. He told me as far as using a mouse on these computers, people usually use a USB mouse when possible. He said the touchpads are far too sensitive and he's had to troubleshoot this type of problem with buttons not working, the touchpad not working, etc. Just a note, if any advice/experience, please LMK!

Hi all, I bought a used Z510 off Ebay a couple of days ago as a small upgrade from my Z500. I have a modded whitelist removed BIOS on the Z500 and use an Intel 7260ac WLAN card. Now just learnt that modded BIOS's cannot be flashed on the Z510 without hardware programming. I'm so annoyed at Lenovo for this selfish restriction and I'd seriously consider ever buying their products again. My question is: are there any 802.11ac WLAN cards that will work on this model? I've looked in the Hardware Maintenance Manual and all I can see are BGN cards, not AC. I've seen a Broadcom AC card mentioned in a thread but the model number was not given. PS: Does anyone know if the screen brightness issue was solved if one uses a FHD screen on a Z500? I know the Intel HD4000 drivers caused the issue but this thread seems to suggest that using a FHD screen reproduces the problem.Thanks a lot!Andrew

Hi kingphilip,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
It would be best if you can share the details of your machine using the MTM / machine number from the sticker or get it from here. Knowing the specifications of your machine and acknowledging your needs would help you approximate on how far you would like to upgrade things.

Hi everyone, I bought my Z510 notebook about 2 years ago and this problem started about 2 weeks ago. A significat drop on performance occured when playing games that previously had no problem to run smoothly. It's quite annoying because now it's impossible for my games to run fluently - instead they almost run frame by frame like I had too weak graphic card.. It happened suddenly - one day it was OK and the other everything went down.I cannot watch YouTube videos in 1080p quality. 720p is max and if I chose higher quality, videos cannot run smoothly - the situation is almost the same like with my games. Video needs to take some time to load for about 2-3 seconds - it also lasts for about 2-3seconds.My notebook also needs much more time to start up and switch off. It used to be a copule of seconds and now I feel like this time has doubled. In general, my PC works slower.I scanned it for viruses a copule of times and even reinstalled Windows. Nothing helped.What is happening? Is it because of the graphic card or is it because built-in technology making the hardware obsolete and forcing buying a new PC? In advance thanks for You help.

I have an ideapad z510 which I have been using without any problems for the last 2 and a half years or so. For the last few weeks, it won't turn on if it's unplugged: the lights under the keyboard turn on for a brief moment, so does the power button, but then it all stops. When I plug it in, the first time I press the button it doesn't turn on either (same behaviour as when unplugged) but on the second attempt it turns on propperly. Once running, I can unplug it and it will keep working propperly.  What could be going wrong? How could I fix it?  For your interest: I cannot (easily) remove the battery, in case that matters.  Thank you for your help Leo
