X1 Yoga battery not detected

2017-12-01, 10:01 AM

Since a few days I am facing the problem that my battery cannot be detected, which results in the system not being able to determine the amount of power left in the battery. I am using a X1 Yoga with 64-bit Windows 10 version 1709. I have already tried reinstalling the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant driver. I also updated the Lenovo Companion app, disabled the battery in the BIOS and restarted the system. However nothing seems to work. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?

I indeed found such solution strategies online. The problem is that I cannot remove the battery in this X1 Yoga laptop. Following the above steps without removing the battery doesn't seem to fix the issue. Do you have any other suggestions?

Great, thanks for the help. I manually disconnected the battery and reconnected it and the problem seems to be resolved.

Re: X1 Yoga battery not detected

Please help!    I spilled a little water on my keyboard but it was minimal so I read to unscrew the back and take the battery out so it doesn't short.   It turns out the battery is almost impossible to take out so I started to try and jiggle it and then left it there.

 

I let my computer dry overnight just in case anything was wet and the next day I turned the computer on.  Everything is working but I am getting the error battery not deteced.   I followed the steps in this thread to unplug the battery connector.    I did that and plug it back  in but it is still not working.   I also tried to uninstall battery drivers and reset bios to default.   None of this worked.

 

I Know the battery is working because when I boot up my X1 yoga without the power cord it still works.  The laptop also works when I have the power cord unplugged for extended amounts.   I am not good with hardware so please help!

 

Thanks.

You don't have to remove the battery.  You can simply power down, unplug it, hold the power button for 30-40 seconds, reattach the battery and then power up.  This has taken care of the problem for me a few times already.
