Z500: After full discharge battery is not charging - "Plugged in and not charging" message is shown

[ Edited ]

Good day,

I have reached the next problem: after I've returned back from a vacation, I have inserted AC adapter into my laptop and the orange battery indicator was not displayed. I have turned on my laptop and found, that the battery doesn't charge - there is "Plugged in and not charging" message near the battery indicator in the tray.

 

I have tried to follow the steps from the http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-and-U-series-Laptops/Ideapad-Z400-or-Z500-battery-will-not-cha... , but it didn't hepl - the program freezes on the first step "Now configuring the program..." http://take.ms/k0TBi

 

Have also tried to delete/reinstall Energy Management - nothing helped.

 

OS - Windows 8.1 x64.

Power Management Version 8.0.2.14. (have also tried to reset battery via that toold - didn't help).

 

Thanks in advance.

Might be a driver glitch, no point closing as this could relate to others.
