Hello
It sure sounds like a defective battery to me (one or more dead cells in stack), it takes more voltage to boot up than run once booted, so if the battery is failing that would give the symptom you have. I suggest you have a local Radio Shack test the battery.

    Sorry didn't read in the post that you had a new battery. At this point I would email Lenovo Tech support, the service is free and they may be aware of a problem like this in your model Laptop, I would have contacted them 1st before going here to FixYa, they have a much larger knowledge base on their products than we do here.

Hi there.

Please try to power drain. Take out the battery, remove the power adapter. Press the power button and hold it down for about 15 seconds. Then put the battery back in. See what happens.

Let me know.

Thank you!

Battery not charging in lenovo y410 laptop


If the charger cannot charging is the problem,then you need to repair the Battery management software,because you say that the battery is working,then the error should be on the software,that it doesn't indicate that the battery is charging,first go to Device Manager (Right click My Computer,select Properties,click Hardware,click Device Manager) by type "Device" on the start menu and select Device Manager
Expand the Battery categories and right click on Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select Uninstall
WARNING: Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver.
On the Device Manager taskbar, click Scan for hardware changes

Please let me know if it's working

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My MSI U100 Netbook won't charge. I purchased a new battery, and it still won't charge. So the battery was not the issue. Can the the AC power cord go bad as well and I should replace it? Or is...


Yes the AC Cord does go bad , you can also look at the power jack at the back of the Laptop to see if it is loose when you plug it in. I always start with the plug they are usually cheaper than a battery.

My battery was was not charged for 2 days over the weekend and now it won't run on batteries. I need to have it on AC power every time I use it.


Hello,
Laptop batteries can become unchangeable if they are completely discharged, and left that way for too long. This happened to my Asus. IF you leave it charging over night and it still doesn't work you will need a new battery. If you contact the manufacture they will probably charge you over $100 for a new battery. If you use eBay, the average price is $32.

Lenovo y550 laptop, battery shows fully charged, everytime i un-plug the charger,system shuts down, and won't start back up until i plug it into an outlet


Quite simply, the battery is dead. What is happening, is that the battery is charging, but the cells cannot retain the charge and it drains straight away. You need a new battery

If the battery is fully charged when i plug the charger stopped charging or not in Lenovo z560 ?


Welcome to FixYa

When the battery is fully charged and you still have the ac adapter plugged in then the battery would no longer be charged. The computer would then be running on ac adapter power.


hope this helps

Lenovo y410 laptops turns off suddenlty while using it for long hours


hi

is the computer dissipating excessive heat from bottom ? is the heatsink fan working (is it blowing out air from fan on the side ? if not, then replace the heatsink fan. This shut down occurs to advise you that something is not working well , and to avoid damage to the CPU and/or mainboard, its letting you know that.

if the fan is working fine-- are you on the computer while the AC adapter is NOT plugged in ? Are you fully charging the battery before you use the notebook without the AC adapter ? If you are NOT using the AC adapter, running on battery life only, then do this : shut down the notebook, disconnect the power adapter, remove the battery back up from rear of notebook.
reconnect the AC adpater and start the computer -- perform normal function on the computer, run it and work with it for a few hours. if the same issue occurs, (unwanted shut down) , then perhaps the AC adapter is faulty, which is not charging the battery to full capacity.

let me know what happens-- i'd appreciate your feedback w/o receiving bad rating
