Have been using Ideapad Z410 from past 6 months. From past week the Laptop shuts down without warning, and the battery level is at 99% or 100%. Only when the unit shutsdown, and when I start up again, that the battery indicator starts from 0 and goes to 99% or 100% and stays there. I have also doen the Battery Meter Reset, but of no benefit.
What is the problem, and what should I do.
Should I claim under warranty ?

I sent my Z410 with the same problem in for repairs. Mine stopped working one week after the year warranty expired. I'm just glad I bought the extended warranty. Lenovo was able to recreate the problem and replace my battery. I asked them why I wasn't notified if this was a known issue for anyone owning a Z series and they told me it wasn't a known issue yet....I told her to go read the forums. I also purchased in January 2014.

I think I just discovered a way to handle it..
So you have to fully charge it first (it will stuck at 99% for quite a long time but it will reach 100% eventually). And when you'd done this, unplug the charger and it'll work like a normal battery indicator.
Although I still suggest you to get another battery indicator software, I personally use BatteryCare.net and haven't found any problem at all.
Hope it helps!
