Plugged in, not charging. Lenovo Ideapad Y700

Hello!

I write here with a problem that I have since the day before yesterday.

When my Laptop is on and the charger is plugged in, the battery won't charge, giving the notification "plugged in, not charging". Laptop works like the charger wasn't plugged - energy drains from battery.

I suppose that is a software problem, because when laptop is turned off or hibernated it charges normally.

Formating didn't help at all.

Microsoft support told me to recalibrate battery - didn't work.

Lenovo support told me to try another charger in service - I will try if nothing else works.

Maybe someone had the problem like that and solved it without going to service, which I want to keep as a last resort solution.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Plugged in, not charging. Lenovo Ideapad Y700

Hi there, Karmilen -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

  1. turn off the computer and remove the battery and AC adapter.
  2. press and hold the power button for 30 secs and reconnect the AC adapter
  3. turn ON the computer and continuously tap F2 to boot into the BIOS, when you're in, press F9 to load defaults and press F10 to save and exit.
  4. boot into Windows (while still having just the AC adapter plugged-in) then reinsert the battery.

Also, check Lenovo Energy Management

 

Update us how it goes.

 

 

 

 

Regards,

Sounds like Laptop not getting proper power from the AC adapter. Most likely there is wrong with the adapter but just in case test it with a voltmeter to make sure the output voltage is correct.

 

Update us how it goes.

Re: Plugged in, not charging. Lenovo Ideapad Y700

Good Day, I am having the same problem with my y700 ideapad , when switched off it charges fine but when plugged in it just says not charging the whole time. I can not remove battery seeing that it is built in battery.
