Hello Southpaw69343

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

I believe this means that the battery is critically low, its possible that you have a faulty battery on your hands.


Try another charger if you are able to at all.


Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.

(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)
1. Turn the unit off
2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter
3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds
4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter
5. Turn the unit on as normal


Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
