Lenovo is known to be a go-to brand when it comes to building reliable and well-priced laptops. They seem to have pretty much every segment of the market covered with their laptops. Sometimes you can come across unusual issues. This tutorial will show you how to resolve charging problems on your Lenovo laptop.
1. With your laptop powered down, flip it over and take note of the laptop’s SKU. The info you’re looking for is on a sticker.
2. Visit Lenovo’s support site with respect to your laptop’s SKU and see if you have any BIOS updates pending. You should also see if there are latest revisions for your drivers (namely chipset and management engine interface, if your laptop is based on Intel). Where applicable, update them and see if the issue is resolved.
3. If you’re on Microsoft’s Windows OS environment, Make sure your OS’s power profile is set to high performance.
4. Disable the options for sleep on both plugged in and on battery.
5. Along the same pipeline, you can also try and mimic the settings for when you’re on battery power and AC power.
6. You can likewise try and open up Device Manager and within the Batteries collapsed arrow are Microsoft AC Adapter and Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery (and possibly one other).
7. Uninstall Microsoft AC Adapter. Follow up with the same for Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Method Battery.
8. Reboot your laptop.
Options 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 assume your power management software is the culprit (and likely the OS being corrupt).
9. If that doesn’t solve the issue, try and back up all your critical files and folders onto a removable storage device. Reinstall your OS after recreating the bootable installation media to rule out a corrupt installer.
10. If that doesn’t solve the issue, you should be able to find a reset hole under the laptop. Either in the center of off centered.
Use a straightened paper clip to press down on the internal button for at least 30 seconds.
11. Connect the AC adapter (if it was disconnected) and power up your laptop.
12. If that doesn’t resolve the issue, inspect the AC adapter’s male output as well as the AC power female input on your laptop. It’s possible that there may be hardware damage. Replace the AC adapter and see if that resolves the issue.
13. If that checks out fine, you should turn your attention to the battery. It’s possible that the battery is faulty or failing. Replacing it should solve the charging issue.
