W530 battery does not charge

2012-09-24, 16:42 PM



I have just got a new W530 (2436CTO) with the battery (70+?), BIOS ver is 1.07. The battery does not charge even I plugged in the AC. The battery status is ok and charging on the power control panel, but there is no estimated charging time and the level has been at 4%. I have changed all types of battery control profiles but that does not work. I have even followed another fellow's example and updated in the display card, but that does not work either. I have updated every possible thing except for the BIOS of the laptop, which requires a fully charged battery to update. I hope someone who has similar experience can give me some pointers.

the 70-series battery is correct for your machine. since it's new, i would call Service:

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?DocID=PD008370 and ask them if they'll send you a replacement battery.

if a new battery fails to charge, then it could be something amiss with the charging circuitry in the laptop, but best to take one step at a time.
