lenovo ideapad 500s BIOS update for windows 10?

Hi.

I have a problem with my battery not charging (at 1% left and power connected) and get an error message that my battery is not recognized by Lenovo, even though it's the same battery I've had for 4 years (the laptop is as good as new, and I don't want to change it).

Apparently, a BIOS update should work, according to several web forums, and it worked when I had the same problem some time ago. But since then I have updated to Windows 10 and I can't find any BIOS updates for my laptop which is compatible with windows 10. And those that are compatible with windows 10 are not compatible with my laptop. Will there ever be an update, or do anyone have another solution to my battery problem?

INFO:

Windows 10 Home 64 bit

Intel Core i5-3337U 1.80 GHz

8GB RAM

Current BIOS id: 7ECN19WW

Hi and thanks for answering!

It's model name is 20248.

I also  expect problems with upgrading the BIOS because of low battery level, it's a catch 22 situation, really. Any ideas to get around that problem are much appreciated, too. 

Thanks again ☺️

Situation update: the pc is now charging as normal without me doing anything at all. Don't know what healed it.... 

Wouldn't mind if it would be possible to update the BIOS anyway, so if you find a way please let me know.
