Lenovo G505s Battery

Q: Lenovo G505s Battery

Guys, I've had my Lenovo G505s for pretty much 2 years now. I have a poor battery performace. Recently my charger malfunctions. It won't work till i have placed it at an agle of the charging port, meanwhile if i use another charger from a friend, it works very fine without struggle. Initally, i thought it was my charging port but I'm sure that it's not now. Also, recently my friend swapped his battery for mine (he had 50% charge on his battery), as soon as he put it into my laptop, he saw that it was around 28%. A few minutes after that, the battery died. *One Key Optimizer tells me my battery is weak and needs replacement. Battery capacity is at 42%. My question now is :1. Do i just need a new battery and a charger?? OR2. Could it be from my motherboard? (I'm running the AMD A10 with Radeon gpu) I'd really appreciate suggestions from you guys. Thanks.

my g505s with a10 has serious heating issues even after bios update. whenever i play games, after a while the gpu temperatures shoot up to 85-90 degrees and the game starts stuttering immensely. the fan runs painfully slow. only the lenovo energy management software can control the fan by the dust removal feature. this works for only about a minute. i have tried all fan control softwares but they don't even detect my fan. msi afterburner, speedfan, even amd overdrive can't detect the fan and i'm really dying now. i would please appreciate any help on this as soon as possible.

A:lenovo g505s fan problem

Hi Mngabriel,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G505s Laptop?s temperature is increasing while playing game. There is no other option to increase the FAN speed, the only way to make the FAN run in good speed is by switching the power plan to ?High Performance? mode and then you can choose fan control modes in your Windows Power Plan settings. Select the power icon in the notification area and click "More power options." Click "Change plan settings," then "Change advanced power settings." In the ?Processor power management? submenu, you will find the "System cooling policy" option, if your laptop is equipped with heat sensors. Selecting "Active" runs your fan more frequently, at lower temperatures; "Passive" leaves the fan off until the laptop reaches a higher temperature. Below is the link for the same:

Hidy ho all,

I have a Lenovo G505s I bought in august. Up to this point, its been a great machine. This morning (11/20/2014) I installed some updates from windows update. around 4:30 PM today, I rebooted the machine, because I had an hour break in between classes. During that reboot it tried to install those updates, and it said it failed. After the failure it said it was reverting back to the prior state before the updates were installed.

It then rebooted again. It got to the Lenovo splash screen, and some little white text on the bottom of the screen has said for the past half hour "Updating your system (5%)" with the windows 8 little circle thing spinning around just above it.

I did try restarting it by holding down the power button, but it came right back to this screen.

Google has turned up nothing yet. Has anyone else had this issue? If so, have they (you) been able to fix it?
 

A:Lenovo G505s not booting

I think the quickest way around this issue is to let the OS try to install the updates it might take a while to do so(which is a pain) but I would wait because you don't want to mess up your system you might loose more than the time you will wait

Although, I can see and attempt to connect to my WiFi, it promptly tells me that I "can't connect". After perservering to connect to the network, I can eventually get in, however each time it disconnects I have to keep trying for hours at a time.  I can, however connect to my phones hotspot with ease. I know that it isn't a problem with the WiFi as I can connect to it with other devices. I've already tried updating all relevant drivers and flushing DNS. I'm on windows 10. Thanks for your time.

Hello guys. I got a Lenovo g505s for almost 1 year. In the first 2 months the processor was stable, 1.9 GHZ in idle and 2.3 or even 2.8 in games. But now I got a big problem. While the laptop is in idle, it stays somewhere at 2.3, and it never reaches 2.8 GHZ. While playing games, it dropes to 1.77GHZ or even lower somewhere at 0.88GHZ. I checked for dust, there is no dost. The thermal paste is new. It is set to High Performance. The bios is updated to 3.00 and all the drivers are up to date. What can I do to get my frequency back like it was when I bought it? Please answer, I tried everything, reinstalling windows, Windows Updates... I hear that some guys solved the problems.. but I don't know how.

Hello,

I have a question related to the BSOD on a Lenovo g505s which is running win7. When i try to turn the laptop on, it "loads" the windows, but suddenly crashes with a BSOD error:
UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

I tried the "Last Known Good Configuration" it doesnt help, i did a full disk check but nothing works for me. So my question is: Is the HDD damaged, or are the sectors bad? Should i replace the HDD or is there a solution for my problem?
Thank you for your answers in advance,

dbalazek

What did you use to do a disk check?

The error sure sounds like a hard drive failure but in a laptop is good to make sure the drive did not become loose and unplugged.

The battery in my new G505s stops charging at 60%. Clean windows 8 then windows 8.1 install. The lenovo site has no power managament drivers for windows 8.1. Is this because windows 8.1 installed the lenovo app on its own? Because it is on the computer and i certainly didnt put it there. This happened after i upgraded from windows 8 to 8.1. It was 100% before the upgrade and 70% after. The lenovo energy management program has two settings. Maximum battery life and optimized battery health. No matter which is selected, charging stops at 60% and says plugged in not charging. I tried doing the battery gauge rested and it doesn't work. I press start and it does nothing. I drained the battery to 0 then charged it up but that didn't do anything. The dust removal button also doesn't work. On  side note, what graphics drivers is everyone using? i have the ones from lenovo installed. It looks like they were updated a few months ago. Would the generic AMD ones work better?

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G505s Laptop battery is not getting charged above 60% after upgrading to Windows 8.1, I suggest you to install the LEM (Lenovo Energy Management) available for Windows 8.1 but while installing right click on the downloaded file and select ?Run as administrator? option. Below is the link to download the LEM:

A:Lenovo G505s hard drive size?

Always a good idea to look at your service manual / maintenance manual for this information before you order parts...Go to the support tab on this site, enter in your specifics then select your computer from the list. One your support page loads, at the bottom you will find a link to documents, choose it and read up on your service manual. It has quite a bit of good information about updating or upgrading parts, including a white list of acceptable replacements and upgrade paths.Good luck.CB

Hi NeddyNelson , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
You can try to reset the BIOS default and check if BIOS will detect the harddrive. 
It may be the the harddrive itself is bad , so if you have another harddrive to test it with just to islate if BIOS would detect another harddrive. 
 
Hope you manage to abck up your data , you may slave the harddrive in an enclosure and test it on another pc to diagnose its integrity .

The wifi card on the lenovo G505s isn't good at all and I tried to replace it with a spare one I had from a previous laptop but I got that error. "Unauthorized network card is plugged in - power off and remove the mini pci network card" Can someone link me to some sort of list of the wifi cards that are whitelisted by Lenovo so I can buy one of those? Or tell me another brand of wifi card that I can buy that wont give me this error. Thanks.

hi sm222,
 
Sorry to hear what happened,
 
The Wifi card that you should use should be on the whitelist and it should have a Lenovo FRU tag on it.
This is the list

 
Technically the model should match together with the Lenovo FRU tag

Battery Issue - Lenovo V570 (Laptop) - Battery Model L09S6Y02

First off I for the most part do not use the battery. It is normally detached from the laptop. I only attach it to periodically charge it and test prior existing charges' performance.

O.K. here is the problem. I attach battery attachment, computer does not make it to the window screen more often than not. When it does, it freezes at the please wait loading screen.

I rarely use the battery at all, but I want all my equipment up and functional. It's life should still be good for I periodically recharge it. I think since I've had the laptop I've only recharged it a total of 6 or 7 times and that's been a year or so.

I, for the moment at least have the battery working power adapter attached. What did I do? I uninstalled Avast (freeware version) ?

I learned from prior experience that running two of any system utility software can cause problems, but it normally restricts itself to what it is protecting. Then I remembered: "If you remove the possible whatever is left however in probable must be the truth."

Next phase of testing is test the battery on it's own.

I recently purchased an x230 and everything is perfect but the battery fit.  It moves up and down slightly.  I know there are many posts in the lenovo forums for all different models that the battery fits lose in "x" model and solutions of putting paper / foam / tape to make the battery fit tighter.   What I'm wondering is if anyone has actually had the problem fixed by lenovo.  I've read a few posts where a user has had the base piece of the case replaced (where the battery fit's into) and that has solved the problem.  I'm still within my return period on my x230 and am awaiting a call back from tech support to see if there is anything they will do but I don't think I will keep it if they can't fix it.   I'm just curious has anyone actually had luck by replacing the base piece.  From what i've read a replacement battery hasn't worked for anyone.  Also, I know everyone says its by design for thermal purposes but I haven't actually seen any official confirmation of this from lenovo.   Thanks.  

A:Battery Loose / Battery wiggle in x230 and LENOVO ...

As a follow up, I'm just curious if this is a widespread issue?  Anyone have loose battery in their x230 / x220?  I'm not talking about it falling out...but just a few millimeters of wiggle room.  Basically when i pick mine up or place it down, I can feel / hear the battery move.  I'm just trying to get an idea if this is a real problem or thats just how every thinkpad is.  I called support and they are sending someone to replace the base panel and we'll see if that fixes it.  I'll update this post when it get's replaced.   Edit* I also asked the lenovo support rep if they had heard of this issue and they said no, never.  I don't see how this is possible as if you do a google search for thinkpad loose battery there are many results.

Hopefully I get a solution to this question but my Lenovo Y50 has not been charging even after I thought it was my laptop charger was broken I bought a new one of the same exact type and It still didn't work and did the exact same thing as it did with my old charger. (i had this laptop for a year) What did the laptop exactly do? Well my laptop when I plugged it in it didn't work unless I set it up in a certain way to where I wiggled the charger tip around untill it finally said It was charging and I had to hold it into that position like a statue or else it would unplug if it moved an inch. That's not even the worst part! My chargers also heat at the tip. By heat I mean it literally gets so hot I burn myself on touching the plastic part and the metal part was very hot, when this happened on my new charger I made sure to unplug it right away to avoid doing any damage to it. Solutions I have already tried:Went into my control panel -> device manager -> Uninstalled both of the battery things like the ac adapter and the other thing I don't remember what it was called -> reinstalled -> Worked for a bit but not 100% gauranteed and after a while it didn't work Can't do a battery gauge reset because charger always unplugs Already tried BIOS does nothing. Don't even tell me to restart my laptop lol. Summary:Y50 won't charge, Have to have charger at certain angle to chargeTip over heatsdid everything in device manager to fix itno driver up...

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.

Good Evening, I purchased a Lenovo Z50-70 a year and five months ago, It has been running perfectly fine until yesterday evening. I had left it unattended for approximately 3 hours plugged in charging, when I returned I was using it for around 15 mins and then I noticed that the battery was low (even tho it was 5% battery it was saying 2 mins to fully charge), it then turned off and refused to restart until I unplugged the AC but when I plugged the AC in once it had started it just turned off. I tried the power button solution that was posted (press 10 times in 30 seconds) and restarted the Laptop, it started fine and I plugged the AC in and it stayed on but the battery led was flashing orange (Still would not charge) and then the battery ran out and the Laptop turned off and I can't get it to work now. I have tried to use the laptop with just the AC but it will not work. I have ordered a new battery hopefully that will work but I am wondering if it should aleast work on just the AC for the moment.

I don't use the battery very often, but would like to keep it charged 100% in case I need to use it. I would like to get an idea if the 50% option really saves that much on the battery.

Okay so I have a 6 month old G51-35 Laptop that I've been using for gaming. Then earlier this morning when I was playing, the battery went down to 25%. I plugged it in and it didn't charge. I wondered why, and then I thought the power in the outlet was just not flowing so I'll just plug it into a different one later, and as soon as it hit 10% I panicked. I kept searching up solutions, but nothing popped up. So I then told my brother, by the time the laptop was at 1%, and he did some tests on the laptop. A couple hours later he told me that he doesn't know what the problem is, and so I started really freaking out. I searched up the prices for a new battery pack, but there wasn't anything for the g51-35. I then looked at the laptop prices, and it was a whole load of bull because the laptop itself cost $559. My parents would kill me if they found out, but I don't know what to do next. I think the laptop is overheated, but I don't have the tools to be able to clean it. Please help. Thanks.

Hi, At times, my battery would get stuck at 70-90% for a period of time while plugged in, then suddenly dropped to 0% when I removed the charger. Within minutes, it hibernates. When i plugged the charger in again, although onekey optimizer indicates the battery is charging, it get stuck at 1% for a period of time. It estimates a 12 hrs charging time.  However, when I get lucky, the battery randomly rises from 0% to 100% within seconds, and I was able to use the laptop for 2 hrs. Yet, when I plugged the charger in, the same problem occurs.  I have tried to uninstall ACPI-Compliant Control Method battery, but it doesn't solve the problem. I always put my battery in conversative mode, and tries to keep my setting low (brightness, etc) to perseve my battery. I only have this laptop for a bit more than a year and my warranty just expired for 2 months, which is really upsetting. This problem happens to the my last lenovo laptop that I owned for roughly a year (right after that warranty expired too), and it seems like lenovo product is very fragile and doesn't last more than a year.  afuY40

I'm assuming that this thread may not even receive any replies based on the times I've attempted to receive aid from any professional within the Lenovo community. I'll give it a shot anyways. Hello, I've had my Lenovo y40-70 for a little over a year (so that means my warranty is expired--do not tell me to use my warranty to fix my issue). After updating to Windows 10, I've had extremely bad battery life. It would drop from 100% to a hibernating state within the hour. Previously, I've received acceptable battery performance with maybe about 3-4 hours of usage. I've tried updating all my drivers and playing around with battery settings etc. I've uninstalled the energy manager application and am unwilling to perform a gauge reset due to the potential negative effects it may have on the my system. Anyone have any idea on how to fix this issue besides rolling back to Windows 8.1? Oh yeah, I've also tried calling Lenovo support but I was literally on the line for 2 hours listening to a song. Any help is appreciated. May have to end up getting a different laptop if this problem persists.

A:Battery Drain Lenovo y40-70

I have similar issues with my Y40.  Add to that a loss of notification when the battery is low, so the Y40 goes into Hibernate without warning.  Also the data displayed about the amount of charge remaining in the battery stays above 90% most the time while running on the battery, even after 90 minutes of use. Tried uninstalling and updating the Energy Manager. And have tried various adjustments to the power plans. Nothing has solved the problems of unpredictable and erratic battery life, or at least what the Y40 thinks the battery charge level is at.

Hi, when my Lenovo U41-70 is unplugged, it won't turn on even if it still has charge inside. The battery LED indicator blinks repeatedly in white after I push the power button when unplugged. (I think white doesn't indicate a lack of charge in the battery)The laptop only turns on if I plug in the power adapter. And the laptop won't suddenly shut down if i unplug the power after I plug it in, so it means that it still runs on the charge in the battery. But if I shut down and power it up again(when unplugged) it still won't turn on. I think there is a problem with battery detection  (see pictures) What is the solution for this, as I really need this laptop for work. I can only power on this laptop if I plug it in.https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8OHjy59ECrLZl9XcHRNN1ZtSEU/view?usp=sharinghttps://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8OHjy59ECrLT3pxZXY3UDY5dVE Thank you

Hi, I am having some battery issues with my Y40 laptop which I purchased in late 2014. It seems that the battery gauge reads 100% even though the battery is discharging and the power cable is not plugged in. I have tried completely draining the laptop and charging it again, when charging from 0% it does update the percentage correctly on the battery gauge. However, after I close the laptop lid and it goes to sleep, if I open it again, it reads 100% even though I know its not at 100%. Then it just dies after it discharges but I have no idea when to plug it in since I can't trust the gauge.Any ideas what could be causing this? I had a similar issue in the past and sent it back to Lenovo and they replaced the battery but could it really be the battery again after only 8 months of usage? The battery holds a charge fine, it just doesn't update the battery gauge on the taskbar properly it seems. I've gotta say, if thats the case, I'm quite dissapointed in this laptop . I read a bunch of the other posts online about similar issues but nothing specific to this laptop that has fixed the issue. I'm not sure what else to try and if there is something else I can do. Note that I am running Windows 10 instead of 8.1 which is what the laptop came with initially. Thanks for the help!

I've had a battery issue (the known one : battery says 100% and suddenly falls at 0% and shut down) and in September I sent my computer to Lenovo. It tooks about 6-7 weeks for the battery to be replaced. My warranty was supposed too be extended, but was not. Now, my battery has the exactly same problem. I do not want my battery to be replaced again : it takes a too much long time and I can't wait that much long again. Can someone help me please to resolve this problem?Thank you.

A:Lenovo Y40 Battery Usage

Hi Ebon_Knight,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
Using the computer with the AC conected is just fine.
     
 I would say it is OK to use the your laptop while plugged in,
Because once you plugged in an AC adapter, Your computer switches to AC power mode where it gets power from AC charger while charging the battery.
  
  Now about overcharging , If you have the Lenovo energy Management Software configured to "Optimized battery health" then you should not have to worry. it will prevent charging your battery to a 100% and prevents from over charging, 
 
If the computer did not came with the software, Lenovo Energy Management  can be downloaded from support.lenovo.com just choose your computer model and OS version.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

One day while using my laptop, the battery of my laptop was about to drain completely so I plugged it in. But the battery was not charging. I changed the plug point thinking there was some problem with the socket but still it did not worked. I removed the battery, reinserted it and tried to charge again but the problem still presisted. Then I removed my battery and plugged in the laptop. The laptop was working fine. Keeping the laptop plugged in (laptop shut down) and reinserted the battery. The battery charged for a while then the power button and power light (in the front on the edge of the body) started blinking. Therefore, I removed my battery. So now I charge my battery by first plugging in the laptop (battery removed) and then reinserting the battery. The blinking poblem also occurs very often.  Also when the battery is attached to the laptop and I try to charge it the laptop does not powers up. Model: Lenovo B40

Hi, I recently bought a Lenovo S20-30 (around 6 ~ 9 months ago) and I am having some problems with battery. The laptop had Windows 8 preinstalled that I used for a couple of weeks, before installing Ubuntu MATE. On Windows, the battery life was around 2, 2.5 hours. After installing Ubuntu, the battery life shortened to about 1 hour, 1.5 at maximum, however in the last couple of weeks it is barely lasting 30 minutes. I checked and there is no viruses and/or software draining CPU or battery. Also, every time I turn on the PC, the system shows the following message:Error MessageI am very dissapointed with Lenovo. This laptop was barely used, it is almost new and I can't rely on it anymore. I think this laptop was already old when I bought it, for months in store shelves waiting for a buyer. Regards,

At some point in the last few days or weeks, the green battery indicator simply vanished from my X1 Yoga (Win10) without a trace, and it seems I'm not the only one with that problem. I tried downloading it from the support page, but the software was removed from the list, and a link from google only leads to a "page-not-found" message. So, what's going on? Will there be a new version of the battery indicator? Why was the old one uninstalled and not just simply updated via system update?

It has gtten to the point where I always need to have the charger in it, otherwise I can't use the laptop at all. Every time I unplug the charger the laptop turns off.  Do I need a new battery? Is the battery bad, or is there something I can do to fix this? I've heard new battery drivers might help, but I am lost.

I have an issue with a G50-45 notebook. The owner is an older acquaintance of mine who couldn't use it with the WIndows 8, which is the original OS comming with it, so in order to install a WIn 7 was needed an update of the BIOS (Downloaded from the official Lenovo support center ofcourse). After the update I finaly managed to boot Windows 7 on the notebook, but now it won't turn on, while battery is on. I tried the battery draining suggestions mentioned not once or twice in this forum, and nothing gave result.(Ref: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-B-and-G-Series-Notebooks/G50-won-t-start-on-battery/td-p/2140152 )  When pressing the power OR the Novo button it is getting in a cotinous boot loop while battery is on. I tryed many varieties, but while the battery is installed - the notebook keeps restarting, but when I remove it and power on only on AC, evrything seems to be going quite well. So after I installed the new OS, I digged myself into the forum, and I ran onto the above mentioned techniques, but unfortunatelly after several tries - I give up. My question is - do you have any other ideas? Is my problem hardware, because it does not exit when I remove this particular hardware - the battery, or it is some issue because of the updated BIOS?  I hope somebody will give me the next direction how to fix what I did, please =) Thank you in advanced  BRStacy

hello, I have a lenovo g50-45 laptop. It's a great laptop but recently I have been having a lot of trouble with the battery. Afew days ago, I started noticing that while the computer is plugged in to power, the battery always stays at 0%. It says that it is "charging" but it remains always at 0%. The Lenovo Energy Maneger says that "the battery is weak and needs to be replaced". I tried to do a "gauge reset" but it did not do anything. Under my laptop, the region under the power connection is very how while the battery is very cold.  I am not sure what's going on. Can anyone help? It is unique because it says that the laptop is 'charging' yet the battery always stays at 0% and does not actually charge. I suspect its the "Lenovo Energy Manager" that is preventing the battery from charging because it thinks that the battery needs to be replaced. I tried uninstalling the "Lenovo Energy Manager" but I am not sure how to do it. It does not show up in the list of programs in control panel. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

When on battery my screen flickers to the point that the laptop is unusable.  No problems while it's plugged in.  This issue started under Windows 8, but only appeared when using heavy graphic applications like Photoshop.  Under Windows 10 it starts happening almost immediately when unplugging the power. I've tried changing the power options to ensure it's set to maximum performance while on battery, and tried both on and off for the adaptive display options with no improvement.  I've seen "replace the LCD panel" as a solution in another thread but that does not seem to be a logical fix given that the system works fine under power. Anyone have any other suggestions?  This seems to be a common problem, so I'm hoping there's a driver/update fix.  Has anyone tried getting a new battery?Thanks!!

Prior, it had been stuck at 60% with charger plugged in and once taking the charger out, computer would shut off in 30 min.

Hey Lenovo Forum:
 
I'm having a battery charging problem that seems slightly different from any on this forum so far. I just acquired a T430 running Windows 7 (64-bit) like a charm. After a few issues with the audio drivers, everything has been running smoothly. 
 
Abruptly, yesterday, when I plugged it into the wall socket (the same socket that it had sucessfully charged on earlier) it failed to charge. Thinking it was the outlet, I tested it. The outlet and adapter are both working fine (the adapter powers the computer no problem with the battery removed from the system). The lock switch on the battery is in the propper position (i've tried both). The battery is not overheated (it's cool to the touch). I tried removing everything and holding the power button (apparently that discharges some built up charge in the system) then reconnecting the battery and AC adapter, nothing. 
 
I just downloaded the power manager which (when the laptop is, in fact, running off of AC power (the battery charge indicator hasn't draining in hours of continuous use) reads:

A:lenovo g5080 battery problem

Hi Venu1,           
 
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with battery in your Lenovo G50-80 laptop.
 
As you have mentioned that the battery does not charge <60% turn off the conservation mode. To turn off the conservation mode go to energy manager, select the settings tab turn off the conservation mode and check if the battery is charged upto 100%.
 
Let us know the result.
 
Best regards,

I have a T440s which I bought in July 2014. It is out of warranty. Lenovo companion reports my "primary" battery is "BAD" but says absolutey nothing else even though it reports a full charge. In fact the lenovo battery icon in the corner of my display shows battery is green and 100%. I'd like to understand whether this battery is bad in the sense that it should be removed from the computer immediately, or whether it has detected that it is no longer holding a full charge and could be left there. I am almost always at the desktop in a docking station so I don't need the full charge. I don't understand why all they report is "Bad". Any suggestions as to how I might find more or if it is just reporting lower capacity and nothing more? Also, it was kind of confusing which battery they meant when they said "primary" is bad. I could see an argument that either is the primary battery. Better to have used the terms integrated and removable. I removed the removable battery and reran the test to determine the primary battery is actually the integrated battery. I think the service person said the opposite. The lenovo companion page that reports the battery is BAD has a link for more information and it goes to a general lenovo webpage that has nothing to do with support. They are trying to get me to apply for a lenovo credit card I think. Its so disgraceful how they dropped the ball on this one. Alex

I've recently purchased a used Lenovo T430s. The battery appears to be dead, so I purchased an EBK battery from Amazon. The EBK battery appears to work fine as long as the charger is not plugged in. Shortly after the charger is plugged in the system reboots. I've read that Lenovo laptops will not charge a 3rd party battery. Is this correct?At this point in time I can't be sure that the charging system in the laptop is functioning correctly. Is there a utility that will test the laptops charging system? Thank you,Alan

My battery seems to charge very slowly when connected to AC and when I unplug I lose power in less than 20 minutes and the diagnostic says battery is in "Fair" condition and only charging at 41.38% of its original full charge capacity.  When I called customer service since I am still under warranty, they just said I could send in the laptop for repair which takes about 7 business days or go to a Best Buy for the GeekSquad to repair.  I went to Best Buy, but the Geek Squad said they would have to send it off for 13 days so none of this was helpful as this is my only laptop and I need it daily so to send it off for 7 business days would be difficult.  Are there any other options for repair that reduce the time significantly?  I can't believe Lenovo doesn't offer overnight shipping to expedite the process

Hello, I'm having problems with my battery removal. As my title shows, I have a Lenovo ideapad 100, and I am supposed to be sending it off for repairs. For my issue, I need to take the battery out because it's not part of the problem; however, I can't get it out. I read on here to take the base off, but when trying to do that, it seems that it's breaking the inner clips keeping it attached. I don't want to keep breaking these off just to pay for them to be repaired later on. Is there a simpler way to take this base off?

I'm having a problem: Since today, when I connect the charger to my laptop, the battery LED blinks every five seconds, when it is supossed to be a constant orange/white light; it has been that way until now and I don't know what that means. It only happens when it's charging, when it's unplugged or not charging, it's a constant light. If someone could explain why this happens, please help me solve this, I'm afraid this could mean a problem with the battery, power supply components or something related, the laptop costed a lot of money and sacrifice to acquire, so I don't want a product that failed my expectations. I still have warranty so I can still send it for repair.

We have several Lenovo B50's which we are noticing are powering themsleves off  randomly, the laptop then refuses to turn on dispite the power cable being plugged in and gives a red/orange flashing light. We know that this is due to the power supply not being connected in time and the battery running down too low for the laptop to function . The light continues to flas even if the power supply is plugged back in after shutdown. and the laptop will not restart until the light turns to a solid state. However we are noticing that the laptop only seams to be lasting about 2 hours in total with normal used (tested with a youtube video being played). I have also read articules that say that the battery normal starts to go into sleep mode at around 14% which we think maybe desciving staff. Has anyone had the same exsperiances with this? we are running Windows 10 and have already changed all the power settings to never sleep etc.

I have had ongoing issues with the Battery on my Lenovo G700, from when I first recieved it.  The computer thought that my factory battery was a fake and refused to charge it. Currently the battery after getting plugged back in to the wall is inconsistent about starting charging the battery again. This leads the the battery just dying while I am using it plugged into the wall. Who else is experiencing Lenovo Battery issues while plugged into the wall? Is this a common problem for all Lenovo systems?  If so, why has it not been resolved by now? I see messages from older systems than mine that had the same or similar issues too.  Thoughts??

Hi guys,  My battery is no longer going above three percent when plugged in. I have a lenovo y40, the warranty just expired last month, and lenovo is not really helping. I'm very frustrated. Everything was fine, until I turned my computer on this morning and realized it wasn't storing power. After reading around on the internet I determined a few things. A) The battery itself is fine, I ran a battery report... and it shows a sudden drop from 97% to 0% to 2%, and then back to 100% in a matter of minutes. Battery Log   < Click to see my log B) I think the issue is primarily a software one, becuase when I disable microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery in device manager my computer still runs for hours at 0% without being plugged in. Anyone else have this issue or know a solution? I'm a college student and I need this laptop to work on the fly for me. It's barely been over a year, and im already having issues.... someone help I can't afford a new lp!!!!

A:Lenovo Y40 Battery wont charge.

In response to customer reports of unexpected battery gauge behavior on Y40-70 and Y40-80 laptops, Lenovo determined the battery gauge software is performing as expected. The unusual gauge results being reported are a reflection of the battery reaching end of life.
 
Lenovo has released a Service TIP to assist customers with obtaining battery replacements under warranty, or if out of warranty, to find a replacement battery from Lenovo-approved vendors. The Service TIP can be found here: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/sf16-I0023
 
The part numbers for Y40-70/80 batteries are:
Y40 SP/A L13M4P01 7.4V48Wh 4cell bty (Y40-70/Y40-80) 121500248
Y40 LG L13L4P01 7.4V48Wh 4cell bty (Y40-70/Y40-80) 121500249 substitute part 121500251
Y40 CP/C L13C4P01 7.4V48Wh 4cell bty (Y40-70/Y40-80) 121500259 substitute part 121500251
 
To determine which battery came with your Y40 notebook, instructions for removing the bottom cover can be found in the Hardware Maintenance Manual pdf here. An alternate to opening your system (which does not void warranty) is to search for batteries using the model/product number located on the bottom cover.

A:Lenovo Z510 Battery Issues

I have had this laptip for about 4 months and this started a week or so ago. I have stopped getting warnings that my batter is low, these used to occur at 10 and 7% battery life. This wouldn't be a big issue but the battery life indicator is not accurate. It shows at a constant 80+% and the next thing I know my computer shuts down for a low battery. Please help me fix this.

Type powercfg /batteryreport then press enter key.3. Open using file explorer C:\Users\NAME\battery report.html to examine the report.
