Hi

 

Welcome To Lenovo Community

 

We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing,  

 

You may want to try below different methods and check which one work for you.

 

Method A:

 

  1. Remove the AC and Battery from the laptop
  2. Press and hold the power button for 30 to 40 seconds
  3. Replace the battery and AC
  4. Boot the laptop up and check if the same message is still displaying
  5. If same error still persist, try to uninstall Lenovo Energy Management, reboot then install the Energy Management software again.

 

Method B:

1.Open Lenovo Energy Management

2.Click on the bottom gear icon between i and ?.

3.Under Battery Health, Click on Start for Battery Gauge Reset. (refer to Fig. 1 below)

4.That should refresh the gauge and let the system finish through the cycle.

 

Method C:

1.Open Lenovo Energy Management

2.Click on the bottom gear icon between i and ?.

3.Under Battery Health, choose "Optimize For Battery Runtime" instead of "Optimize for Battery Lifespan".

Note: The latter option will extend the lifespan of battery by limiting the charging capacity to be between 0-80%.

I tried all the proposed solution and didn't work. I have the laptop since 2 months only and I have windows 7 Entreprise and I am currently in a country where there is no assistance. Would appreciate if you could help sorting this issue the soonest
