x270 Battery 2 plugged in not charging

2019-01-16, 9:18 AM

Hi everyone,

 

I have a very annoying problem with my x270: when plugged in, only one of the batteries charges.

 

I've tried the power cycle, running on one battery then the other, removing & re-installing the Microsoft drivers, all the suggestions from the other posts on the forum but nothing works.

 

A friend of mine suggested booting into Ubuntu from a USB drive, and what do you know - both batteries are charging fine, which would point to the problem being with a driver/Windows 10 x64 v1067.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

 

Thanks

I have an intermittent problem with an X240 and Battery 1 not charging/not found!  I suspect it's related to your problem, but in my case, it happens sometimes (usually when I could make use of that battery, of course) but not all the time.

I have the same problem, came after a recent windows/lenovo update. For me it is battery #1 that isn't charging (at least not displaying correctly, but seems to charge, since I can use the pc long after 0%)

you all should be using windows 10 version 1903 as older versions are not being fully supported

Strangly I had the opposite experience, I upgraded windows, and then it stopped charging. Pulled the batt, and disable the backup in BIOS and did the 30 sec. power button hold (not sure if that really matters.) Now the battery charges.
