Thinkpad S540 : Battery died after the Windows 10 upgrade

2016-07-05, 21:37 PM

Hello,

Like many people I took advantage of the free upgrade to Windows 10 for my Thinkpad S540.

After the update I left the laptop in a corner and the battery is discharged.

Since then, impossible to charge the battery, even plugged into the AC.

I have browsed through the forum, but no satisfactory solution has yet been found.

What can I do ?

Thanks in advance. :smileysad:

Hi, welcome to the forums.

 

I don't have that machine but, If it is not a hardware issue or battery failure I would recommend you to try to following to see if you get any results.

 

Please check the support site for the Thinkpad S540.

- Update the BIOS if you have are using an older one. Please be carefull to do not disconnect the power since you don't have battery.

- Update the Lenovo Power Management Driver for Windows 10 (32-bit, 64-bit) - Laptop

 

I also recommend you to install:

- Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion from the Windows App Store.

The Lenovo Settings app has some feature to manage the battery. Maybe some of those will help you.

 

This is what it cames to my mind right now.

Hi

 

I found another reference that recommends to install "Lenovo System Interface Foundation for Windows 10" which is also recommended for "Lenovo Companion" to work.

Let's hope this helps.

First of all thanks for your answers.
I am not able to try your solutions because the laptop did not start at all, even if it's plugged into AC.

It's quite strange. I ran out of ideas... :smileyfrustrated:
