[Ideapad 300 S] plugged in not charging



I just purchased Ideapad 300 S since Februari 2016. But only in 1 month the battery show message "plugged in, not charging". So I went to Lenovo Service Center and replace the battery


It worked normal after that. But one month after the battery show same message again?


What can I do with this? Please help me.... 


Thank you so much

Re: [Ideapad 300 S] plugged in not charging

Welcome to the Forums Nunuaz.


The Lenovo Energy Management is probably limiting / protecting the battery from overcharging.


Reinstall Lenovo Energy Management and observe:


If you still get the same error, try to:

  1. turn off the computer and remove the battery and AC adapter.
  2. press and hold the power button for 30 secs and reconnect the AC adapter
  3. turn ON the computer and continuously tap F2 to boot into the BIOS, when you're in, press F9 to load defaults and press F10 to save and exit.
  4. boot into Windows (while still having just the AC adapter plugged-in) then reinsert the battery.


Update us how it goes.
