Lenovo Yoga 3 14' multiple battery problems

The Problems

  • Won't start without being plugged into charging cable
  • If charging cable is removed or power outlet is turned off, the computer shuts down immediately
  • Battery level stuck on 38% and will not increase.
  • Screen flickers constantly

 

The Story

I have had my Lenovo Yoga 3 14' 940m for a long time now and was very satisfied with it, up until a few days ago. Suddenly the computer wouldn't start. I tried holding the power button for +10 seconds and nothing happened. Then I plugged the charger in and it started up. However when i got to the desktop the battery level was at 38%. I let it charge for about an hour and when i got back it was still at 38%. Furthermore the screen was constantly flickering. In some applications the flickering is worse than i others, ex. Google Chrome flickers a ton but in Adobe Acrobat it is a lot less. Is there any solution to this? Help would be greatly appreciated

Hi Pandanananana and welcome to the community,

 

Its sounds to me that the battery is dead and that is why you are experiencing the issues with this. The screen flicker could be that a windows update has been applied that he effected the Lenovo Driver, Please reinstall the driver from the Lenovo Support website.

 

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on
