Y500 laptop wont charge


I have run the battery meter program from lenovo what is installed last night. And now my laptop wont charge anymore, well it does but i need to take out the battery and replug the adapter first. This is really strange because it seems its not a hardware faillure but more a software one... Can anybody help me please?



This is what i have already done

- System restore
- Took the battery out of the system for about 30 minutes

- Unplugged the adapter for about 30 minutes
- Ive tried to reinstall the battery drivers in windows

- Ive tried  to run the same program again

- And ofcourse i tried another power socket and cable


Can anybody help me? Because the laptop is just 1 day old...
PS: Sorry for my English i hope you guys can understand me Smiley Happy



Already thanks - Jasper

Re: Y500 laptop wont charge

Could you try this?
Unplug charger and the battery. Then press and hold the power button for 40-50 seconds. See if the battery charges.
Hopefully it works for you.
If it doesnt work, then you would want to uninstall the power meter program and see if the battery charges.
