Thinkpad Yoga 460 Battery "disappeared" / suddenly not able to charge anymore

Hey, 

Recently i got my Thinkpad Yoga 460 back from lenovo battery replacement.

 

Now today, after a week of a perfect working battery, i got a "lenovo unauthorized battery warning" and the battery wouldnt be charged

 

When i remove my AC-Adapter the laptop works fine for a few minutes and then looses power.

Sometimes i got a warning that i have to reinstall oder change the battery.

Lenovo settings doesnt show a battery either.

 

Anyone got an idea what i could do?

Hi

 

I read on other forum thread about this message, but it is a different computer. Some people suggested to do a hard reset holdind down the power button for 10-15 seconds and then power up again. But I'm not sure if will work.

 

Just some wild thoughts:

1) Check your model on the support site, I think it is this one, but please check.

2) Update the BIOS of the computer.

3) Update the power management driver.

 

My last idea will be to send it back and ask to check the battery.

 

Regards
