I noticed about a month ago that my battery meter was no longer accurate as it would discharge. I would get to 15 minutes left, maybe less, and then instead of shutting down or hibernating, it would just turn off, but not the proper way. Now, I can't even get a charge. There's no way the battery just decided to not charge anymore. I bought this in January 2016, so it's not very old at all. Is there something I can do? I tried recalibrating the battery with the One App thing from Lenovo, and that just made things worse. I tried to get it to recalibrate, and it hasn't been able to.

First try removing the AC adapter and disconnecting the battery, and holding the power button down for 30 seconds to drain residue power. Then, try installing the energy manager: http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-y-series-laptops/y700-touch-...
Let me know if that works.
