Y500 not charging after Lenovo Energy management

Hello,

 

I have been using my Lenovo Y500 for 2.5 years now and like 1 month ago i have used the Lenovo energy management software to recalibrate the battery. 

 

Next day at school my laptop didnt wanted to charge up when plugged in. After trying so many ways to let it charge i finnaly found a way to charge it up. 

 

- Unplug the charger and remove battery.

- plug in the charger and then in the wall-socket

- insert battery

 

I have to do this everytime when i want to charge my laptop. 

 

The nex day i tried to find the problem. I did try another original adapter and battery. But that was not the problem. 

 

So i went on the internet and search if this problem was more common. 

 

After some research i found 2 websites telling the same problem as me and say that this is an motherboard fault caused by the lenovo energy management after battery calibration tool. 

 

Now i am pissed at Lenovo for ruining my laptop with their own software. 

 

I dont have any warranty on it anymore so what can i do? Just accept it that Lenovo screwed me? Or will this be fixed?

Xono, I don't know if you're checking this forum anymore but I have the same issue and ran out of warranty, I am going to replace the motherboard and see if that fixes the issue. I will keep you updated.
