My p500 shows that it is at 40% and that it IS charging (most of the other stops states that it isn't charging). It could be that windows thinks the battery is charging, but it obviously isnt because when I pull the power plug, the laptop immediatley shuts off. Obviously the battery doesn't have a charge.
I got the latest version of the lenovo energy manager, but that didn't do anything. Also, I don't recall the enery manager being there. I am almost certain that it was not there prior to windows 8.1 upgrade.
Device Manager shows all of the hardware with no missing drivers/unknown hardware.
I have been running the battery conditioner which is suppose to run the battery down and then charge it back up. That has been going on for a few hours and it is still at 40%, where it has been stuck from the start.
Windows did an update today, and now my pc won't run on battery power. The battery icon is just empty and says plugged in and not charging. This is the first time I've encountered this problem. When I unplug it, it immediately dies.
I recently just received my Ideapad y510p laptop back, and I unplugged it and the battery dropped to 60% but when I try to charge my laptop, it'll just stay at 60%. The battery says its plugged in but it won't charge.
I have a P400 Touch that was purchased just a few months ago (February I believe) and it's been great so far. This past month, however, I haven't used it (until now) and noticed that my battery icon is stuck on "36% available (plugged in, charging)" but the thing is it's not charging whatsoever. What's worse is that if/when I pull the adapter from the laptop, it cuts off completely. The battery indicator light is steady white when the adapter is plugged in as well.
My battery stops charging around 58%. I have the power plan set to "optimized battery lifespan". I understand it has something to do with a charge/discharge threshold setting. How do I go about changing that? Also, what would be a good level to set it to (good for battery health).
I've had my P400 for a few years now and today it stopped charging. Not like where it says "plugged in, not charging" but the battery isn't getting any power, when I plug my charger into the port on the side I noticed that the battery light that normally . I took it apart and I checked where you plug it in because I found that this is a common problem with laptops, but it's fine.
My Lenovo G570 battery is stuck at 90%. It says plugged in, not charging. It just happened over night. Next day battery refuse to work.
In windows it says battery 90% and is not charging but battery has no charge at all. When I disconnet the A/C power laptop just shutdown immediately. As soon as I unplug the power laptop just shutdown as there is no charge in the battery.
I did reinstalled the Power management and also updated it. I all unplugged reboot in OS, restart, put battery back and boot into the OS back. Nothing seems to work.
I just installed Lenovo Energy Management in windows 8 before I was trying in windows 7. In the battery tab there are two options
Maximum battery Life Optimized battery Health. It is selected to "Optimized battery Health" and won't change regardless of power plan. I click on "Maximum battery Life" and when I open the app again it reset it to "Optimized battery Health".
Lenovo Solution Center say that battery life is GOOD. "Your battery is in good condition".
I bought my lenovo z400 ideapad beginning of April this year and just about two days ago it just turned off and though I plugged it in later it started saying 'plugged in but not charging'. What do you think is the problem?
Furthermore I lost the receipt ( the sales receipt) but there is still the model/series no. , is the warranty still on?
I installed windows 8.1 pro with WMC on my lenovo z510 laptop and installed energy management driver from laptop's drivers dvd. After I installed LEM (lenovo energy management) i started the gauge reset process for my laptop.
After some hours i saw nothing is happening so i made a mistake and cancelled gauge reset in the management software and after that when i restarted my laptop my battery icon says PLUGGED IN CHARGING but it just remians on 0% !!!!!
Problem solved by for example uninstall and reinstalling MICROSOFT ACPI. but notice that i reinstalled my windows 8.1 ! i changed in to windows 7 ! again changed it to windows 8.1 !!!
I updated the energy management software ! nothing happened !
Then try to restart to BIOS menu and from there restore BIOS defaults ! but i couldn't enter BIOS from any ways ! from pressing F1 ! from the way based on windows 8.1 and UEFI frimware settings (somthing like that) ! from none of them i could enter the BIOS!
So now my battery is still facing the problem !you know that it's not easy to unattatch and reattatch z510 battery that is internal ! so at last i must say that i've checked a lot of ways and now my battery is still having problem !
Can i disable battery charging on thinkpad x201, so i don't need to pull out my battery every time? Because although my battery stop charging when it is fully charged i don't want to use battery as power sourse after that.
I have a problem with my Lenovo ThinkPad X300 computer. The battery charging stuck at 99% (remaining capacity about 69% and 300 cycles). The Power Manager displays, the battery is at 100% but "status" periodically changes - both Power Manager and Windows battery indicator - between "No activity" and "Charging".
Every time stuck at the same "Remaining capacity". As i noticed during battery user windows and the Power Manager displays different information about the remaining battery level and time.
I had brought a new G500 Lap it was nice to work with it, but fo past two days when i connected it with charger it shows me "Plugged In, not charging". what to di with it but some times to get charging .
i have a very peculiar problem with my lenovo g550 lap, i kept it aside without using for 2 days, when i switched on the next day it didn't start, i removed the battery and tested but nothing worked only the battery charging light was glowing. suddenly after an hour and half it started working automatically and it worked fine throughout the day, next day i had same problem it started about 2hrs later...
I was just wondering what the average time was for a totally dead y510p to charge while using it for some light browsing on the internet. It seems to charge really slow especially after it reaches about 80 percent or so. I was curious to see what other owners have had in terms of charge time. I seem to have narrowed it down to about 5 percent every 10 minutes while my cousins HP charges way faster. Not too upset about it but a bit curious. For example as I am typing this out it's been at 99% for the past 20 minutes or so, and HW monitor shows it charging really slowly but when its at like 50 percent it charges at a decent rate maybe about 10 mwh every 5 seconds or so.
I've had my IdeaPad Notebook P500 for over a year, and rarely had an issue with it. Today, I accidently touched the F11 key, which happens to be the "Brightness minus" key.
Immediately, the screen went very dim, to the point where it actually hurts my eyes to be typing this.
I can adjust the brightness sliders up and down on the screen, using both the F11/F12 keys and the slider box available from the "Brightness" selection under "Settings". Even though the sliders go up and down, the screen stays the same very dark level.
Windows 8 64-bit is my OS.
I have uninstalled and re-installed the Intel HD driver.
I have shut down the laptop and turned it back on while holding the F12 (Brightness plus) button. It was useless, though.
I have a Lenovo Ideapad p500 Touch. I recently upgraded my router to an AC1900 Router, and with it i wanted to update the internal wifi on the Lenovo. I purchased an Intel 7260 AC Dual Band with Bluetooth seen HERE . Install was pretty straight forward, seeing how im a IT Tech. Where I had an issue is with the drivers and getting bluetooth properly set up. The wifi part works without an issue. I can't seem to get bluetooth to work at all. When i go to device manager I see bluetooth but only if I select to view "hidden Devices". Im running Win 8.1 64x, Ive tried installing the drivers from intel, but it never seems to actually install the bluetooth driver. I don't get the icon in the system tray.
I updated my Lenovo P500 touch lapyop to Windows 8.1. The hot keys do not function. I already updated my BIOS to V 1.21. I also had a problem with my screen brightness. I updated my driver for the display. What do I need to do to fix this?
With my Lenovo P500 IdeaPad I CAN connect via wifi but NOT with ethernet cable. It just stopped working one day. Windows 7 device manager no longer recognizes device. I assume I need to replace the ethernet card. True? If so, is this possible or is it part of the motherboard?
It was working fine a few minutes ago, i closed the laptop for a few moment, but when i came back the screen was black at first. so i did a hard shutdown cause i though the computer crashed or something. but when i turned it back on, it was suddenly white. if i tilt it a bit, it sometimes goes black. I don't know what to do, i used my friends monitor and it worked so it not the computer...
I recently purchased a lenovo p500 ideapad from bestbuy around 3 weeks ago. just on thursday, i press the f11 key to lower the brightness and it imidiatley went very dim. i cannot bring the brightness back up even tho the button and the computer says the brightness is all the way up. the screen is at the dimmest setting possible. i am running windows 8 and i have checked the drivers to see if they are updated and they are but i cannot bring the brightness back up. this is very frustrating.
All of a sudden, my Lenovo Ideapad P500 (running Win 8) is having sound issues. The sound will stay on for 5-10 minutes when I start it up or put it to sleep and then wake it up. After that, the sound will just quit working? FYI, the Windows 8 updates that were part of the Microsoft monthly security fixes were installed last week and the problem started today?
Ideapad P 500 Touch - What driver do I use? I tried em8.08.0.2.4 driver. It will not work. It also has caused an error using my function keys on my key board. Error message:
"Compatibility issue between your power management system and Windows Your power management system isn't compatible with this version of Windows. The model name of your power management system is Lenovo ACPI-Compliant Virtual Power Controller."
