Take the battery out, with the power plugged in replace battery, orange battery level lights on the laptop will light probably stay on for a few seconds then go out. Repeat until battery level lights indicate a lower level usually one light. continue watching charge state ( the blue battery led on the lower left on the laptop should be blinking) once the battery gets a start charge it should continue to fully charge. Sometimes batteries drained too low don't have enough power to run their internal circuitry to start charging.

Try to perfrom power drain. You must first turn off the computer. Take out the battery and unplug the power adapter. Press and hold the power button for 30 secs. Put the batter back in, plug in the power adapter and power ip the computer then observe.

Let me know if same issue will happen.

Why is my laptop unable to run off battery power, even though battery shows fully charged and AC is unplugged


It's time for you to replace your battery.

how old is your laptop? and how do u use it - do u leave it plugged into the wall socket all the time? It's common for batteries to die out after a couple of years. however, if the computer overheats or if you leave it plugged in all the time, it's life cycle will decrease. Charge - discharge cycles. That's how you are suposed to do it.

What to do if my laptop says, "Plugged in, not charging?"


A lot of newer BIOS version hardware only charge the battery when not in use. Makes sense really as why charge a battery when not in use? It should charge when switched off, if not maybe the battery is faulty.

Battery won't fully charge.


Does the battery % stop at 85% or does it get to 100% and reduce to 85% when disconnected?

I've read several articles about battery charging and several have stated that when the phone hits 100% on the charger it will slowly decline even though it is left connected. Basically, it hits 100% and acts like it's disconnected (even though connected). When disconnected the battery percentage will drop. I'm not sure if this is what you are experiencing or if it's a problem with the device.

To start, I would suggest backing up all data on the phone and sync with Google. Perform a factory reset and log back into the device. This may solve the problem. If not, then I'd suggest going back to your service provider

My lenovo G550 appears not to charge when the charger is plugged in despite turning the mains power on and off to see if power is getting though and the blue neon light showing on the mains...


Hi m529,

I see you are having issues with you G550 charging.

You mentioned that the light on the charger is lit up but then it suddenly switches Off, and you also mentioned that the charge still has a light but the power is somewhat low despite of a fully lit up charger Light.

Have you tried draining the power from the system?

  • Remove the battery and the Charger or AC Adapter as well call it from the G550 then press and hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds to drain power from the system motherboard.
  • Once drained connect the AC adapter but do not connect the battery yet, then turn the Laptop ON to see if the system will power ON using the AC adapter/Charger if it powers up then there is no problem with the AC adapter/charger.
  • After testing the AC adapter if it is working power down the Laptop doing a normal shut down.
  • Once shut down or turned Off insert the Battery back in the Laptop then turn the Laptop ON using the battery only without the AC adapter/charger see if the system will turn ON using the Battery only.
  • If the Laptop powers On using the battery alone with out the AC adapter then the battery is most likely working as well on the issue.
  • Now power down the Laptop then connect the AC adapter to the Laptop with the Battery in the Laptop as well then turn the system ON again see if the problem will Occur again having the battery and the AC adapter/charger if the Problem happens with both Battery and AC adapter on the Laptop then the problem is the Motherboard, most probably the motherboard is having issues relaying power from the AC adapter to the battery and may be sent to the Depot for repairs.
I suggest that you call Lenovo for further information about your system, if you still have warranty and is still in the one year period then your system will be covered for any repairs needed - you can call @ 1 877 453 6686 for troubleshooting, you will be asked for a serial number Located underneath the Laptop on a small white sticker that states s/n meaning serial number.

I hope that this Helps.

Have a nice day,

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

My lenovo x 60 tablet battery shows 0% available, not charging. I have got a new battery and it still shows the same message. can u provide a solution


Hi deepak_nangi,

There are two possible reasons why you are getting 0% available, not charging prompt even if you already got a new battery. It couls be an AC adapter issue or the DC In. Kindly follow the basic troubleshooting below that will help you isolate the issue:

1. Remove the battery from your system and use the AC adapter alone. If your system is not charging using the charger alone, then it's already defective and needed replacement.

2. You may also try using your AC adapter with other system where it is compatible. If it will work with other laptop then the issue is the DC In.

3. The DC In is the port where you are plugging in your AC Adapter. It is buit in to *********** board. If the DC In is loosed your system will not be charged as well. If this will be the case then the mother board needs replacement.

Doing these steps will help you determine the cause of the problem.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

My laptop won't turn on even though it's plugged into the recharg


Try removing the battery and running the laptop just on the p/s. If it works like this the battery is dead. Otherwise the laptop has a problem.

If the battery is dead, buy a new battery or run it on p/s alone.

Laptops should be run on battery alone as much as possible, or the battery dies.

Lenovo 3000 N200 battery not charging.


I just had the same problem. My battery had discharged to less than zero and would not start even though the power plug was in. I tried everything... but what fixed it for me was to remove the power plug, remove the battery, plug in the power cord and start the machine. Once the machine was already booted, I put the battery in and it started charging. Dont know if that will fix your problem, but it fixed mine.

Laptop won't power on


A few things to try:
First remove the battery from the laptop plug in the power adapter and see if it powers up without the battery in. If this works there is a problem with the battery or the battery driver. If it works login go to device manager and disable the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery. If battery works then it was the driver if still fails its a dead battery.
Try with just the battery it is probably dead though as its had no power to charge it.
Check if the power adapter has a light on it some have lights that indicate its receiving power. Also check if the lights on the laptop to say the battery is charging even though you indicated it isnt.
Let me know how you go or if you need further help.
