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?

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.
