im not sure if this is the right channel for issues with my Lenovo 3000 Y410 laptop, but appreciate any assistance rendered
My Lenovo 3000 Y410 laptop will never charge its battery beyond the 40-50% level. Whenever it reaches around 45% charged, it will automatically cut off the charging, although the charger is still plugged in and power is on. I have to turn off the laptop for the charging to continue, and after a while it will automatically cut off again.
When i remove the battery (with A/C plugged in an switch on), the laptop works perfectly fine, just like any other desktop PC. So i doubt its a problem with the charger.
Is this a battery problem, a hardware problem, or some weird settings that i am not aware of? Thanks a lot.
Anyway i'm using Microsoft Windows Vista.
