Lenovo Flex 2 - 14 battery problem!! 0% available ( Plugged in , Not charging )

I got a lenovo flex 2 on Window 10 which is 0% now and it shows plugged in but not charging 

 

-I know it is not the Energy Management system as it is 0%

-I have also tried to delete the Microsoft ACPI- Compliant Control Method Battery and restart my laptop

-I have also tried to hold the power button for 40second after it is shut down. 

 

Any other solution which I can still try?


Thanks

Welcome to the Forums Wayne.

 

  1. Unplug AC adapter (remove from notebook).
  2. Remove main battery
  3. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds (power drain)
  4. Replace main battery
  5. Replace AC adapter

 

Update us how it goes.

With battery installed and AC adapter plugged in, boot up laptop. Go to the Power Options control panel (may also be accessible by right-cling the battery status icon in the System Tray). Set the System Standby option when plugged in to Never. I also choose the Always on Power Scheme, but I don't know if this aspect is crucial, whereas I'm pretty sure the long or never sleep/standby option is. It should be OK to let the monitor and HDD have a timer setting for turn-off, but if in doubt, put them to Never as well, esp the HDD. I also had the Running on Batteries System Standby set to Never, but I wouldn't think that applied in this case, as the AC adapter is being used. However, just to be sure, set it to Never!

 

Go to the Device Manager and find the Batteries>Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery, right click, and uninstall the driver. Go to the Action menu at the top of Device Manager, and Scan for Hardware Changes. This will reinstall the driver (as will logging off and on, or re-booting).

Batteries now have charging circuits built into them that relay their charge level.

 

There is also chances it may have damaged this circuit. Also you try updating he BIOS

 

Update us how it goes.
