My lenovo Yoga Thinkpad, Win 7, 32-bit, has a battery that is stuck at the 2% remaining mark.
I have it plugged in and the Power Manager states that it is charging and that the battery is in "GOOD" condition.
Power Use is set to "High Energy Savings".
The current BIOS is GQET38WW (1.18).
Based on other posts regarding batteries that won't charge, I tried updating the BIOS but I get this error: "Your battery needs to be charged to avoid accidental shut down during the BIOS update."
The laptop will not power on at all without the AC adapter plugged in and immediately shuts down if the plug is removed.
I can replace the system board, but I want to make sure I haven't exhausted all possible fixes before doing that.
