L440 - (Plugged in, not charging)

Hi all,


I'm an apprentice IT Technician and I have been left to my own devices to try and fix a few problems that are occuring with an L440 which indicates that the AC adapter is plugged in, but the battery isn't charging. When the laptop is powered off however, and left overnight, it appears that the battery charges as it was on 100% when I came in to work this morning.


Has anyone had this issue before?


The system is running on Windows 10 with 8GB of RAM and an i5-4200M CPU @ 2.50GHz.

Hello and welcome,;


Any chance it's in airplane mode?

Just to add to what Z said.  Check the below post.  I know you dont have a P70 but it still applies.  In the post it mentions Lenovo settings.  If you have Lenovo Vantage installed it will have the same settings.  Also check if in Windows 10 you have airplane mode turned on.
