Re: Lenovo Legion Y530 Battery Issue

2019-09-10, 8:01 AM

Same problem here. My Y530 tried updating the battery firmware yesterday and failed. Now it doesn't work except when it's connected to the AC. I'm from Moldova. The question is: Should i wait for a fix from the Lenovo team or send it back from where i bought it to replace it with a new one. I'm still on the warranty. The laptop is 8 months old.

Guys, it seems I found a solution, (at least it worked for me).

 

First things first - the hardware is not damaged! Today my new NVMe SSD arrived, after I installed it, I cloned the Windows to the new drive, after which I tried to start the old driver and thank goodness it worked! Everything works again, the charge shows 100%, the light does not blink and the laptop works without an AC. I think that Windows (or the hard disk), is to blame because these are the only parts that I changed. Below I will attach the old (working) version of the driver (no viruses) and some proofs. This is a software error, take your time and do not send laptops to the service center.

 

Good luck and have a nice day!

 

P.S I also changed BIOS boot settings from Legacy to UEFI.

I've already tried this. I format everything including backup disks and installed Windows from beginning. But the battery light was always flashing during clean installation. After installation I downloaded drivers and tried to install, battery firmware failed again and turned off the computer. How did you find old firmware? I tried to do it via Lenovo firmware update assistant.

I found it here, on the Russian-speaking Lenovo forum, almost the same problem has happened before and one guy there shared a driver, it seems to be in released in June 2019, but I don't care really, Now I follow the rule - 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it'. I'm gonna uninstall **bleep** Lenovo vantage once and for all.

Do you guys think we can solve the problem by flashbacking back to an older version of the bios? I'm not entirely sure the devs are tacking our issue that much in consideration which i hope they do.
