First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

Lenovo 3000 n200 bad bios flash


You can try removing the CMOS battery for a few hours. Did the BIOS update come from Lenovo website? What was the reason for the BIOS update, a problem? Altering the BIOS or the System Registry is like taking a stroll in a minefield, one wrong step and............well you know. Take a look at this forum: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-3000-and-Essential/Help-How-to-reset-CMOS-on-3000-N200-model-0769/td-p/57678

Lenovo 3000 N200 0769wont charge, i brought a new battery and charger which both work the problem is the power doesnt seem to be going through to the battery to recharge it what could be causing this


Was the adapter you bought directly from Lenovo? I just know that dell builds in a chip to detect the adapter, if not original it will not charge the battery. I do not know if it's the same issue.

Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop not starting up, power light on


Keep pressed the power button of your laptop for about 30 seconds, the machine will power down.
--The above step may not be required as already so many days passed by.
Then plug it into the power adapter.
Switch the laptop on.
Boot in "safe mode" (F8 during boot).
This will fix any driver or some operating system issue during previous failed boot process.
Once it boots completely, do a normal shutdown and reboot your laptop in standard mode (no more F8 this time).
Now your laptop will be ready to use.

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.
