Lenovo G50-80 won't start unless battery is plugged, AC only charges battery when laptop is off

2017-11-25, 18:15 PM

Ever since yesterday I've had this problem, I tried several solutions and none of them worked.


Basically the problem is: The laptop only works on battery now. When the battery is at 0% the laptop turns off even if the AC is plugged in. To make matters worse, when the laptop is on I get this message "plugged, not charging". So basically the AC no longer works by itself and only charges the battery when the laptop is off.


Here is what I tried so far:

- Changing the settings on the Lenovo Energy Mangement tool

- Uninstalling the Lenovo Energy Mangement tool 

- Taking off the battery and AC, pushing the power button for 30 seconds, putting them back in and turning on the laptop.

- Starting the laptop on safe mode

- Praying to God


None of these things worked. Somebody help.
