    I have a similar problem on my Lenovo y530. It says "plugged in, not charging". I can temporarily fix it by removing the battery and putting it back in, but next time my computer shuts down the battery will stop charging again. I got a new battery, but it didn't fix the problem.

Had the same problem with a manufactured refurb, would go to 79 %, if you go to power options, change plan settings, change advance power settings, then to the Lenovo energy management tab, press the big enable Lenovo energy management, click on the blue gear to the left of the question mark, if "Optimize for Battery lifespan" is selected it will only charge the battery to 80%, change this to "Optimize for Battery Runtime" and it will charge to 100%

I had the same problem.....it used to say battery plugged but not charging......but now i corrected it......when you use AC power to ur laptop for most of the time..then that battery will degrade faster as it is always in full charge...so the energy management software switches to best battery health mode where the charging wont cross 50%......this is done to preseve ur battery.....you can change this option to optimize for battery runtime option...once you switch on you can see tat battery is charging......I hope it helped you....

So when the battery is plugged in, it doesn't charge?

This is almost always a problem with a component not working correctly on the motherboard.

Sometimes it's the battery, but not usually.

There's not much you can do other than replace the motherboard.

You could try updating the bios, but it's a long shot.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!

    Just checked IBM's site and there was a bulletin about this problem.

    BUT I can't help you if you're going to leave a negative rating without even replying to my solution.

    Bad advice. Don't listen to this guy he has no clue what he is talking about. It is very, very rare that the problem is a motherboard. In fact it is almost never a problem with a bad motherboard. The problem is almost always with the battery itself. This issue is often shows up with cheap Ebay replacement batteries. Some obvious things to try first is Remove and again reinstall the battery. If your OEM battery is not holding a charge very long (but it still charges), then the replacement battery is defective if it does to 100%. Check the battery software (Power Manager) make sure battery settings (threshold is set to 100%) and also try the battery (Perform a battery Reset), this fully discharges and recharges the battery. Lenovo laptops are not always compatible with aftermarket batteries and sometimes will not charge properly with Lenovo software. Some blame Lenovo for trying to force you to buy only from them. When IBM was running things the quality was outstanding but Lenovo does not care about customer satisfaction as much as company profit unfortunately.

Have the X1 carbon on windows 8. Run the Lenovo Settings app, click on power and scroll all the way to the right and you will see battery health mode. If it is set to automatically optimize for battery life, you will only get ~47% charge, set to always fully charge and you should get 100%.

Other than concluding right away that your problem is your motherboard. do check the date from which you purchased your laptop. usually the batteries are good only for a certain period of time. in this case... its between 18 months to 2 years.

what others are saying is for you to do the "swap". from good batteries to old ones or from good laptops using the "supposedly" good batteries.

if this doesnt solve your problem. lenovo service centers are always there to assist us.

I recently purchased a Lenovo SL410 and experienced the "loose battery" problem whenever I transported the laptop out of its case onto my desk.

Apparently, Lenovo engineered the batteries to "pop off" in the event of a drop or mishandling, thereby spreading out the force of impact.

So, solution...I always move the thing with two hands and never grip it with only one. Seems to be working.

Oh, and I'm thinking about getting a laptop mount.

Will not start up


hi , Reuben

I would suggest you try safe mode.
Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words "Safe Mode" appear in the corners of the display to identify which Windows mode you are using. If an existing problem does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes.
If you don't know the cause of the problem, you can use the process of elimination to help you find the problem. Try starting all of the programs you commonly use, including the programs in your Startup folder, one by one, to see if a program might be the cause of the problem.
Follow the steps to boot the computer in safe mode with networking:
1. Restart your computer if it is powered on.
2. Tap the F8 key after your computer initially powers on.
3. Once you see the Advanced Boot Options menu you can stop tapping.
4. Use the up/down arrow keys to highlight your selection.
5. Select Safe Mode with Networking and press Enter.
6. You should see drivers loading, and then please wait.
7. You should then be at the Welcome Screen.
8. Logon to your computer using an account with Administrator privileges.

Are 2002 Aztec computers compatible


I am assuming you are discussing the 2002 Pontiac Aztec, the early crossover with the rather distinctive look. I would assume that since they were made by the same manufacturer and they used the same parts that their computers should be compatible. I can't say so for certain as you haven't provided much information, but, unless one of the Aztec owner swapped out the original computer and replaced it with an updated device, the computers should be compatible.

If you are thinking of trying to swap computer chips, I would advise you to wait and let a professional do it at an independent shop. The reason I suggest this is simple, unless you know how to access the computer chip correctly, you risk accidentally ruining it. If you handle the replacement chip incorrectly it is entirely possible that for a stray static charge to ruin the chip by blowing out a trace. Also, if you damaged the socket from which the original chip was removed then it is possible that you will not be able to reinsert the new device without bending any leads on the bottom. If the leads are damaged, then the new computer won't work.

Even if the new computer chip and the original chip were already installed in installable cases (the way most desktop computer chips are installed), it is possible that when you removed the computer, you might have damaged the receiving socket which means that when you go to insert the new computer carrier it won't work correctly because a few or many of the pins on the bottom of the board won't sit correctly.

Removing bluetooth chip


Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

B) Do you have a wireless router?
Dunno.
Do you have a wireless connection set up?
No.

You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.
