I am having issue with my Ideapad U510 Battery. It's plugged in, but not getting charged. on the battery icon, it's showing up as " 4% avaialble (plugged in , charging) " - but not getting charged. This issue started couple of days ago and so far i have tried few options but no success yet ( restarted the computer, changed few options in lenovo energy management, unplugged teh power for couple of minutes). since last couple of days, it's showing 4% available charge(although plugged in). Has any in the forum encountered this issue ? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
Can you try the following:
1. Turn off the computer but let the AC adapter remain plugged-in.
2. While the computer is off, let the battery charge for about an hour or two and observe the light indicators. When finished, turn on the computer check the battery status.
If the battery still stays at 4% and the battery notification is still "Plugged-in, charging" then I recommend you contact lenovo and report the issue as you most likely need to get the battery replaced.

From your findings, I suspect that the battery is failing -- which explains why it's not holding the charge.
Batteries fail over time due to heat, age, and daily use, In this case, I recommend you contact lenovo on how to go about getting a new battery.
