G505s Battery stops charging at 60%

2013-12-16, 5:23 AM

The battery in my new G505s stops charging at 60%. Clean windows 8 then windows 8.1 install. The lenovo site has no power managament drivers for windows 8.1. Is this because windows 8.1 installed the lenovo app on its own? Because it is on the computer and i certainly didnt put it there.

 

This happened after i upgraded from windows 8 to 8.1. It was 100% before the upgrade and 70% after. The lenovo energy management program has two settings. Maximum battery life and optimized battery health. No matter which is selected, charging stops at 60% and says plugged in not charging. I tried doing the battery gauge rested and it doesn't work. I press start and it does nothing. 

I drained the battery to 0 then charged it up but that didn't do anything. The dust removal button also doesn't work.

 

On  side note, what graphics drivers is everyone using? i have the ones from lenovo installed. It looks like they were updated a few months ago. Would the generic AMD ones work better?

 

Solved! See the solution

Hi,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

I’m sorry to hear that your G505s Laptop battery is not getting charged above 60% after upgrading to Windows 8.1, I suggest you to install the LEM (Lenovo Energy Management) available for Windows 8.1 but while installing right click on the downloaded file and select “Run as administrator” option. Below is the link to download the LEM:

 

Do post us back if the issue still persists.

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Hi Chris,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

I’m sorry to hear that the same issue has occurred in your G505s Laptop, please let me know if you changed the battery mode to “Maximum Battery Life” or else if battery mode is in “Optimized Battery Health” it charges only to 60% and stops charging the battery and then it take its power from the AC Adapter.

 

Hope to hear back soon

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, but I have a G505S that I purchased in April.  Windows 8.1.  I downloaded the lenovo power utility and it didn't do anything.  I've tried adjusting the power plan settings, battery life choices etc.  and it still will not charge beyond 60%.  I'm about to go on vacation, and honestly at 60% it lasts for maybe an hour if I'm lucky.  Does it need a new battery already?  Thanks.

Try going into lenovo energy managment and setting it to maximum battery then shut off your laptop, disconnect ac adapter and battery. wait a while then put battery back in. That helped me once when i had the problem

Hi Jfhwy,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

As the issue persists even after changing the battery mode using LEM (Lenovo Energy Management), please perform “Battery Gauge Reset” in the computer and if the issue persists the only available option is to contact our Technical Support for further Assistance to get the details of the nearest Authorized Service Center to get the issue analyzed.

 

Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I’m sure they will be a great help.

 

Do post us back for further queries.

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Re: G505s Battery stops charging at 60%

Hello, I'm having the same problem.  I'm using 8.1 on my G505s.  I tried downloading the power driver thingy linked above, but that didn't help.

 

I only just bought this thing yesterday, and spent the day removing a whole mess of bloatware.  I guess I removed the settings utility in the process.  Is that something I can just re-install, set my battery to charge to 100% and remove it again?

 

If it helps, I used revo un-installer to remove everything.  Just deleted everything it found.

Hey Guys,

 

For all those who has issue with their laptops "Battery stops charging at 60%"

 

Here's the solution: (These are the settings of my Lenovo ideapad Yoga 13, yours will be similar or slightly different)

 

- Go to control panel

- System and security (Category View)

- Power options (Small icons)

- There will be one option selected for your power plan.. click on "change setttings plan" of that plan

- Now click on "change advanced power setting"

- You now will see two tabs on the pop up window that comes up.. "Advanced Settings" and "Lenovo Energy Management"..

- so go to tab which reads.. "Lenovo Energy Management"..

- now click on "Enable Lenovo Energy Management"..

- You will get another pop up window for "Energy Management"..

- Under the Battery option which is in the center you will see 3 options..

- Click on the centre one.. which has a "wrench" symbol meaning for settings..

- And now click on "Start"..

- Voila!!! Problem Solved..

- Now battery will be able to reach 100% complete charge..!

- Have a Gr8 day peeps! :)

 

Best Regards
