Lenovo b570e "Plugged In, Not Charging"

Recently Bought the new laptop Lenovo B570e.

Few days back, the battery icon said "Plugged In, Not Charging"

After googling with the issue I found one fix that worked, it is as follows:

  1. Disconnect AC
  2. Shutdown
  3. Remove battery
  4. Connect AC
  5. Startup
  6. Under the Batteries category, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listings, and select Uninstall (it’s ok if you only have 1).
  7. Shutdown
  8. Disconnect AC
  9. Insert battery
  10. Connect AC
  11. Startup

However, today i experienced the same problem and i went for the same fix as above, but it didnt work...

Please Suggest me a permanent solution for this problem!

Re: Lenovo b570e "Plugged In, Not Charging"

can you check power management for if there is any battery reset option? also please try this: remove the battery, un-plug the ac power, press power button for 30-40 seconds, replace the battery and check if it works.

Re: Lenovo b570e "Plugged In, Not Charging"

Hi Lenovo,


My two months' old E530 with Win8 has the same problem. But if I shut down the PC, it will charge the battery to full.



1) I ordered another brand new battery, it's still the same,


2) I already tried the procedure in this thread many times, it only worked for once or twice. It turned to "Plugged In, Not Charging" again in the next power-on of the PC.


3) The Win8 version does not have "Lenovo Energy Management" software so I can not reset the battery counter.


It is very frustrated. Can you please advise?

Re: Lenovo laptop "Plugged In, Not Charging"

Try this.  It worked for me.  Choose energy management icon from the taskbar (located in the same menu area as "plugged in not charging" - the icon looks like a white car in a red square).  Under the red battery section, select "maximize battery life."  I believe the "Optimize battery life" option allows the computer to almost fully deplete the battery before recharging it.  Although frequently inconvenient if you like to grab your computer and go, this process of near full discharge, then recharge, increases the lifespan of the battery.  Hope this helps.
