Thinkpad X270 battery stops charging suddently

2019-08-30, 14:39 PM

Hi !


The battery of my Thinkpad X270 recently started to stop charging 2 or 3 days ago.

  • Removing and putting back the alimentation cable worked at first, but now it doesn't anymore.
  • I have tried to remove the battery then put it back with no success, though sometimes switching off the laptop makes it charge again, and sometimes not.
  • Since I use Windows 10, I tried to use the Window's alimentation troubleshooter but everything seems fine. By the way, I use Window's last update (may 2019).
  • I've read that it could be because I need to do a BIOS update. Unfortunately, I cannot run this update without any alimentation... (Lenovo Vantage won't let me, and anyway I won't take the risk)


I'm running out of battery and this is my only computer... Any ideas on how to solve this ? Do you think this is a problem on the charger, the battery driver, or the battery port inside the computer ?


Thank you very much for you help,
