Ideapad Z580 won't charge

2013-01-07, 16:53 PM

My basically brand-new Ideapad Z580 has decided to not charge when I plug it in. I registers that the AC Adapter is connected but will not charge. The only way i can get it to charge is by restarting the computer while it is already plugged in. If the AC Adapter gets disconnected at any time, charging does not resume when plugged back in. nocharge.PNG

This is because of a setting in lenovo energy management, which limits the battery charge to 60% and stops charging afte the level reaches 60%.
To change this setting, open the lenovo energy management appliation by using the touch buttons or open it from the system tray icon, then in battery seting change from Battery protection mode or optimize for battery lifetime to optimize for battery runtime.
A more easier way to change this is by shutting down the laptop, removing battery and unplugging the charger and then press the power button for 40 seconds(without any power source). Then Reboot the laptop and see if it works.
Hope this Helps

I don't think that is it... even when the battery is below 60% it will not charge.
