lenovo quality control problem

2010-12-15, 2:26 AM

Very diasappointed with Lenovo quality control. I just got  a new y560 yesterday, and I experienced a problem with the battery. My AC adapter is working, but when I connect with the Li-ion battery plugged in, the laptop no longer holds the charge. Without the battery, the adapter is powering the laptop fine.

I am working through Lenovo support and sales whom I will call tomorrow for next steps. I am in 2 minds on whether I should cancel this order altogether or agree to a replacement. I have bought 4 laptops so far from HP and Sony, and this is my first Lenovo purchase. Very very disappointed.

That's why you should get a Thinkpad and not an Ideapad. :P

(sorry, I had to. )

I even looked at the Y560 when I was looking at a new laptop, but from all the reviews I have read the specs are really impresive for the price but I hear the Y series have been really badly made. I would love to get a Z series for my girl if I read better reviews of the poor Ideapads. :(

To all wondering why this is happening, it is software like I new. It was some rouge setting in windows, please check here for instructions on what to change, read the comments as it explains in full detail what to change(link).



What your suppose to do to fix it in short is Start--> type "device" --> Device Manager --> Battery then from here you nder the Batteries category, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listings, and select Uninstall (it’s ok if you only have 1). Your suppose to do this without the battery in! Hope this helps!
