I have serious problem reggarding this Battery Gauge Reset. I started it on my Y580 and went to work. When I came back the laptop was turned off and I could not start it. There were no indicators that the power addapter was pluged in. When i press the power button the red light in front just blinks 3 times and that's it. I cannot start it and it is not showing that the battery is charging. It's like the laptop does not detect the AC addapter nor the battery.
The laptop is out of warrity!
Thanks in advance and Best Regards,

there is a thread below with someone with a problem with his gauge and didn't want to do the reset for this specific reason. I offered an alternative which might work.
Well you can read that now. I have no idea what if might have done. You could try pulling the Ac, Battery, pressing the power button in for at least 15-30 sec maybe it will discharge the memory enough to come back to lifel. Leave the battery out for an hour anyway. Plug it in on AC only and see if it come on and runs. Then try adding the battery.

Thank You very much for Your help!!!
Let me share how it works:
- Unplug the AC addapter
- Remove the battery
- Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds and then plug the AC addapter while still holding the Power button
The laptop started normally. I will turn it off and place the battery and try again and share my thoughts.
Once again : Thank You very much for Your advice!!!
