Dear Kamal Melwani


Welcome in Lenovo forums


First please follow the below steps :-


1- Shut down the machine and connect the charger

2- Remove the battery 

3- Hold on the power button for 15 Sec

4- switch on the machine and shut it down again and leave it connected with the charger for about 3 hours and then test the battery performance while it connected with the charger 


- also please send me when you remove the charger , what was the charging percentage exactly 


Please let me know
