I purchased Lenovo Ideapad z510, and regardless it's poor battery performance I enjoy it a lot it's amazing, how ever I am having those issues and would highly appreciate some tips or help :
Whenever I charge the battery it never reach to 100% and when I take it off the charger and use the battery it keeps saying 99% even with no charger on, and does not show warning messages about low battery like 10 % remaning and 7% remaning .. like it used to do in the past and just shuts down..
I tried the battery gauge reset with the Lenovo's Enery Manager app but no luck!
My other question is there speceifc program that can check the fan status? I am afraid it might not be working proberly like before.
And my last question can I buy only specific parts of the keyboard? my cat removed two buttons of my keyboard and it is too expensive to replace the whole keyboard with the backlit because it's working perfectly fine!
Solved! Go to Solution.

I've bought mine Z510 recently and I have the same problem. When I contacted the helpdesk they told me I had to reinstall some hardware things. When I did that the same problem occured. The laptop goes out without a warning, according to the batterypicture in the taskbar I've got plenty power. And then the laptop goes out.
So has anyone of you found the solution? Because I'd rather solve it myself then send it for repairs, then my laptop is gone for weeks.

1. Battery is not charging
2. Battery percentage is stuck at 22% , down from 56%
3. Laptop shuts down when AC plug is removed, even with 40% battery charge.
