IdeaPad N581 - battery not charging



my Lenovo IdeaPad N581 is not charging any more. I tried a new battery, but that didn't solve it.


The battery is detected in Ubuntu ("upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT1"):

Bios is on the newest version (5ECN96WW).


Does anyone had similiar issues?

What could I try next?

Is the power-management tool for windows worth the afford (installing windows...)?


Thanks for helping in advance!
