T430 Windows 10 after BIOS update get message "plugged in, not charging"

Hi everyone.

So I got a pop-up telling me there's a new Lenovo update I'd be required to install. So I followed the instructions, it contained a BIOS update, all fine, I finish the installation and afterwards, everything runs fine except that in the bottom task bar, my battery icon shows an empty battery with the power supply icon. When mouse hovering over it, it tells me "plugged in, not charging". When unplugging the AC, the laptop immediately shuts down. In the energy options, however, it says 100% charged.

I searched for this topic and found none with the exact same problem, fixes where I can switch the battery preserve mode on and off only apply to anything up to windows 8.1 whereas I have windows 10 and everyone with windows 10 only seemed to be wondering what the message was without having the problem that it does not load an empty (or perceived as empty) battery.

So, as I would like to rely on the battery and not only on constant power supply from time to time...Help please?
