X1 Yoga 1st Gen Thinkpad Laptop only charges when off

2020-09-12, 20:05 PM

This has been a great laptop until a couple weeks ago. 


I was having issues with my charging cable, so purchased a new one. Recently, I noticed that my laptop wasn't charging, even though it was plugged it. 


I have thought about buying yet another charger, but I noticed that at the Lenovo site they run the gamut from a 45W to a 130W to a 170W, to a 230W.  The last one I bought was a 45W.

Could that be the issue?


Also, I noticed that the battery life is super short now, only  maybe 45 minutes from a full charge. Not enough time to run a BIOS update or anything. 


Thanks for you help!
