Lenovo Y50-70 Battery not charging

2016-04-24, 11:23 AM

1. I am using Lenovo Y50-70 laptop since 18 months.
2. Laptop battery is indicating few issues.
3. It shows battery is 100% charged, and if I removed power cable then laptop gets shut down.
4. Suddenly from 100%, battery charging has dropped to 0% and saying "plugged in, charging" but in actual, it is not.

May I replace battery or should performe gauge reset ? Is there any harm to do so ? In case of reset, how many hours it takes to complete it ?

( I have never performed it )

Try installing the battery manager: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Lenovo-Y-Series-laptops/Y50-70-Notebook-Lenovo/downloads/DS100498


Also, always good to try the BIOS update: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Lenovo-Y-Series-laptops/Y50-70-Notebook-Lenovo/downloads/DS100998
