U41-70 - 2 battery problems (Battery not charging and charge loss in shutdown mode): Model Lenovo U41-70

I am facing the below given 2 problems with the battery of a brand new lenovo U41-70 i5 Red model.

 

1. The plugged in but not charging error. Some suggestions in the web ask the user to remove the battery and change some stuff in the device drivers, but in my model the battery is not removable.

 

2. The battery dissipates a lot of charge while in complete switched off mode (not in sleep, nor hibernated). I have also disabled the windows fast boot mode from the power options, but doesn't work.

To give an estimate, in approximately 9 hours of shutdown (and the charging removed) the battery dissipates from a full 100 to 70%.

 

Note: I have updated the laptop which came with Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. Hence, the system is running on windows 10 now. The laptop is 10 days old.

 

 

Mod's Edit: System model added to front of Subject line to improve visibility / clarity.

I don't have a spare battery or a charger, so, I am unable to test that.

Otherwise, I had trying uninstalling the drivers etc. but didn't work.

 

Also, what is the solution for the battery discharging in the shut-down mode? Is it a faulty battery problem??

 

Regards

Try to update the BIOS and check for the issue.

 

Click here for the BIOS update for windows 7,8,8.1 and 10.

This is the error that I get while trying to update the BIOS. I guess the bios is already updated to this version?
