U430T suddenly not charging. Charger not recognised

Hello,

 

My U430T has suddenly stopped charging. Plugging in the charger doesn't do anything to the laptop. I have tried using a different wall power socket. I have also tried seperating and reconnecting the charging block and the end of the cable that connects into the laptop. In addition I have also tried powering down the laptop for about 10 minutes and removing the cable. I've also disabled conservative mode in Energy Manager.

 

This isn't a case of 'plugged in, not charging' it doesn't even recognise it as being plugged it.

 

This issue was not present earlier today and it was working fine with the charger. It is also the original charger that came with the laptop and has had no previous issues.

 

I believe the last time it was working I pressed the power button to hibernate the laptop and then later removed the power cable. Upon turning it back on the laptop froze momontarily before working again. Upon inserting the power cable nothing appears to happen.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Thely,

 

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.

 

Since you have tested on different power outlets (which you know works) , high probability that the AC adapter for you unit is dead or something.

Have you tried, plugging in the adapter into your unit without the battery attached? If you have done so and even if your unit still does not detect an adapter being attached, then i would suggest you to visit the nearest authorised service center for hardware assistance.

 

Let us know how you get on.

Regards,
