Battery problem-plugged in, not charging. Lenovo
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%
My internet speed is slow.I connect it via bluetooth.
Internet broadband connection is much more faster because it is directly connected via physical connection from the modem (typical setup for home use). But now a days wireless internet can now compete with DSL thru a 3G/HSPDA network. In our country we can have a maximum bandwidth of 2.5Mbps using 3G wireless network.
Yes you can speed up your connection using your phone as a modem but you need to consider some aspects.
- your phone is a 3G capable phone
- you have 3G network signal that an indicator "3G"can be seen next to the signal meter of your phone.
- your network provider has 3G services.
What happen to you most likely is that your are connected using only a GPRS/EDGE. This is equivalent to a dial-up with maximum of 56kbps transfer rate. There is a great gap between the two if you compare it.
I already tested mine with maximum receive/downlink of 2,501 Kbps. I was really amazed.
Hope this things help you. If it does, please rate me.

Battery not present lenovo g530
sometimes 3rd-party battery MFR's do not produce batteries that are FULLY compatible with the laptop; and some laptop MFR's are built to reject non-OEM replacements. It is also possible that you have a bad battery.
Before purchasing a laptop battery, always read the reviews to look-for any that indicated a problem of not recognizing, like you have now.
To answer the question though....if it does not recognize it now, that will not change in the future by any means at your disposal, (like installing new software.)
