Flex 2-14 "plugged in, not charging"

Hi everyone!

I have a Flex 2-14. I had upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10.


After that my battery is no more charging. Message is "plugged in, not charging".


I had tried:

- Lenovo Energy Management --> change the setting from Optimized Battery Health , to Maximum Battery Life 

- Lenovo OneKey Optimiser --> change the setting from Conservation Mode to Normal Mode

- reverted to Windows 8.1


OneKey Optimiser reports: Battery status is good; Battery capacity is good; Adapter status is good.

Battery does not charge even when notebook is stopped but plugged to mains.


Now battery is at 0%.


Maybe related to this: i can't upgrade BIOS. Now the bios is A0CN21WW.

Downloaded A0CN37WW. Extracted files. Removed /cpb 30 from winflash64.bat (in order to remove battery check). Run Install.exe from c:\BIOS\A0CN37WW. Notebook shutdown, remains 2-3 minutes with black screen, and then reboots but the bios remains the same A0CN21WW.


Could be a faulty BIOS? How can i force update it?


Thanks for any suggestion.
