Preferred Solution: lenovo z500 charger is plugged in but not charging

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: lenovo z500 charger is plugged in but not charging

When this has happened to me with my laptops, it meant a hardware problem. Either the adapter is broken or the power jack is broken inside your laptop, or had been bent off. You can try to solder a replacement back on the motherboard if your laptop isn't under warranty. Or take it to a repair shop if that isn't too expensive. Either way, I don't think downloading anything is going to help you.

Early today I kicked my charger and it unplugged while walking out of my room. I was leaving and I was going to be back in a little bit. So I didn't think anything of it. I came back 30 minutes later and my computer was off. I know my computer wouldn't have died that fast. So I plugged it back in and noticed it wasn't charging. So I unplugged the charger from the actual computer and it shut off my computer. I've tried multiple times and it keeps happening. I also noticed my laptop is running faster and louder ever since it happened. This also happened a few weeks ago when my dog hit the cord and it wasn't charging. But I put the cord back in and it started working just fine. I've already tried doing a few things people recommended online, like the following: >Disconnect AC>Shutdown>Remove battery>Connect AC>Startup>In Device Manager, Under the Batteries category, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listings, and select Uninstall (it?s ok if you only have 1).>Shutdown>Disconnect AC>Insert battery>Connect AC>StartupBut this didn't work for me and after I restarted my computer a second time. The ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery ended up coming back. Any suggestions on what could be the problem?

If the jack on the computer where the charger plugs into is loose, then you need to have the jack soldered back onto the motherboard by a local computer repair shop.

Answer:Z500 touch battery issue plugged in not charging

hi lebanese,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
If you're following this article on how to fix the battery charging issue for the Z500 Touch but a "No battery attached" error appears, try to turn the computer off and hold the power button for 20secs. When done, boot back into Windows and check if the battery is now detected.
 
If same "No battery attached" error appears then I'm afraid this firmware update won't work as the battery or the connection of the battery to the motherboard might be defective (the battery needs to be connected for the firmware update to work).
 
- Link to picture
 
I recommend you contact Lenovo and report the issue as you may need to send the unit for service.

I have a Vista Laptop that is not charging at times. The power jack it pushed in and both my chargers spark when I move the plug around so it could charge. I don?t know if it?s my laptop or the Charger. Should I get the power jack fixed, get a new battery or a new charger? Please Help!!

Answer:Laptop charger plugged in but not charging

Esmmy, look in the hole on your laptop where the power adapter would plug in and you'll see the silver power pin. Using a push button pen, put it on the end of the power pin and see if you can move the pin at all. Any movement on that pin means it's broken and the DC Jack needs to be replaced. Most DC Jacks are soldered to the motherboard and need to be repaired by someone experienced in desoldering and soldering.

If the DC Jack is broken, the power adapter won't charge your battery since it's not making a solid connection inside. Moving it around too much while plugged in could short something, cause further damage or even a fire.. Best to have it repaired by an experienced technician.

I OWNED A TOSHIBA SATELLITE C655-S5128

while using last week charger stopped working
i fixed charger plugged it in- no amber light or green

toshiba laptop when charger/ ac plugged in
computer will work fine on ac power
when charger plugged in computer detects charger and shows the icon on the battery icon
computer detects battery and how much of a charge it has
but it states charger plugged in but not charging
the ONLY WAY I CAN GET CHARGER TO WORK AND CHARGE IS TO TAKE THE BATTERY OUT AND PUT BACK IN
COMPUTER WAL LAH CHARGER WORKS AND CHARGES BUT ONLY TO 97 PERCENT FULLY CHARGED LIGHT (GREEN) DOESN'T COME ON

CAN ANYONE GIVE ME A CLUE TO WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY COMPUTER
&
WHAT DOES TAKING OUT A BATTERY AND PUTTING IT BACK IN DO THAT MAKES MY CHARGER WORK I HAVE LOOKED AND LOOKED FOR A EXPLANATION TO NO AVAIL & THERE IS NO COMPUTER PLACE THAT WILL HELP YOU WHEN YOU HAVE NO INCOME THAT IS MONEY
THANK YOU FOR ANY INFO YOU CAN OFFER~BMS

 

Answer:Charger plugged in, not charging toshiba

If you take out the battery when the computer is totally shut down, and plug in the AC adapter and start the computer, does the light on the charger come on, some are green, some not....

And, does the computer work normally if you are using just the AC adapter?

I would not use a battery that charged only to anything but 100% and here is why> overheating can result and cause a fire, I have had one laptop battery explode and it is not a pretty scene.

The AC adapter might also be damaged, but just answer the questions and will try to help further. I buy this type of Toshiba adapter all the time, and can point you to some reliable but not over expensive ones.

This is in response to the problem everyone is having with the battery not charging when plugged in. I found this in the guide for my idea pad Z400. It should help many of you to finally make peace with your battery Battery (B):      Battery Mode (B-1):  By using the battery maintenance function, it is possible to extend the battery lifespan. Before you use this function, read the precaution. Energy Management 8.0 can automatically track your habit of battery use, and then provide suggestions on selecting a battery maintenance mode for extending the battery lifespan. Two battery modes are provided: Maximum Battery Life and Optimized Battery Health.       Maximum Battery Life: In this mode, the battery has the most powerful charging capacity. Note that this mode cannot optimize the battery circle lifespan.       Optimized Battery Health: In this mode, the battery limits charging to 60% of its full capacity. This can reduce the battery degradation and extend the battery lifespan.

Hi ABHAYHENDRE,
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible?
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point. Check the battery health in BIOS (if applicable).
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional. 
Test with another adapter and battery and check.
Force the BIOS flash if required - http://dell.to/2hnhjs4
If the adapter is not detected, test another adapter. If the adapter fits in loose, replace the dc port - http://bit.ly/2hxR3OO - this is the part you need.
If nothing works, then I would suspect a motherboard fault.
You could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
My personal suggestion is that, if the motherboard is being replaced, then you could invest your money on a new machine than to repair this system. However, that is your discretion.

Hello. First of all, thank you for taking the time to view my post and potentially help me out. So the problem is that my laptop will not start. I was using my laptop here one day and it was working fine, but it was unable to charge for some reason and ended up shutting down so I went to bed. The next morning I tried turning it on, but it was dead. I have tried a different charger as my sister also has a lenovo laptop, but this did not work either. I would think if the battery was the problem, the laptop should still be working with the charger in? I have tried calling support line several times with no answer, the warranty has gone out and I forgot where i bought the laptop sadly.

All, my Inspiron 15 5000 15-5545 is having an error with the battery charger saying that it is not recognized and that the charger will not charge my computer.  I know that this is an official Dell charger (it is the charger that came with the laptop) - so there shouldn't be an identification issue.  
I have noticed that there is a pin problem, however.  There are six pins in the laptop charging port (2 for charger identification in the middle and the four other pins that connect to the charger itself at the 3, 6, 9, and 12-o'clock positions).  Whenever I plug in my charger the pin at the 6-o'clock position gets bent upward towards the 2 identification pins.  This may also be bending the identification pins upward, but I am not sure because it looks like they are in the same place, just the 6-o'clock pin is not in the same place.  
I believe that this may be the issue, and has this happened to many people before?  Is there a permanent solution to this?  Do I need to replace my charging port?

Answer:Inspiron 5545 AC charger not recognized (Battery plugged in, not charging)

It sounds likely there's damage to the DC port, yes.  You may want to try another adapter before replacing that.

Hello, I have a 3 yr old Ideapad Z510(that came with Win8)which worked absolutely fine until recently. If I plug in the charger when the laptop is on, it abruptly turns off and would never boot again until I remove the charger. However, this is not how it behaves every time. There are some rare instances where I could still operate the machine with charger plugged in.  When turned off, battery is charging and also goes to full 100%. When turned on(battery mode) it does not drain rapidly - I could still get a fairly decent stand up time. So I am assuming the battery is good. I don't see any thermal issues either. Things I tried:-------------- > Tried with a different charger - no help.> Updated the firmware - no help.> Update the entire driver pack - no help.> Applied windows patches, reinstalled and also upgraded windows to Win 10 - no help.> Reseated the battery and associated cables - no help.  I am not sure if there is anything that I could do to at least diagonize the problem before I give it to the service station. Any pointers on this is much appreciated   Thanks much in advance.

Good day, I bought my Lenovo G580H 1 week before, and before few days i saw, that the battery is not charging. First time the battery was on 61%, later when i was watching the film without AC adapter and after it pluged the AC adapter i saw, that the battery is on 7% and not charging. So no it's not charging too and when you want to watch a film or something without ac adapter laptop is truns off autmatically. So for what i should be angry? For Lenovo or for Windows? Thanks for your help, and sorry for my bad language .Regards from Lithuania.

I have a problem with my z500. Bottom of the charging socket was suddenly broken and it cant charge itself. I bought this laptop from turkey and now I'm studying in the netherlands. How can I find a official support?

Answer:Lenovo z500 charging problem

hi alessionikky,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Just to verify, is there any physical damage on the charging port or around the plastic area?
 
Looking at the International Warranty Services (IWS), the Lenovo Z500 is serviceable in the Netherlands. To get International Warranty  Support, you will need to contact Lenovo Netherlands:
 
Language: Dutch
Telephone number: 0900-654-654-0 (0,15?/Min)
Hours of operation: 9AM - 6PM / Monday - Friday
 
Note:
if the damage on the charging port is physical (i.e. cracks on the plastic base) there will most likely be a fee for the repair.
 
 
Regards

Answer:lenovo ideapad z500 laptop won't boot up without power cable plugged in

Hi maoxiaomin,Thanks for posting and welcome to the community. Based from your post does sound a bit similar to a machine I have which is the Y500. In my case I had to send my machine in to servie for board replacement as they detected it to be faulty. However in your case, I'm not saying that this is the exact same case but let look at the the possibilities first and if all still fails you'll need to contact our service team for further diagnosis.Understandably we've established that you've update the BIOS, battery firmware and ever rest you BIOS.Firsting first though could you uninstall the Lenovo energy mangement and reinstall it back from the Link belowWin8 :http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/em8.08.0.2.4.exeWin8.1http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/em8180214.exeHope this helps and please do post back your results.Regards

I had an issue with my 4 months old y50. Everything was fine until this evening, i left my y50 charging for about 2 hours. When i came back i realized that my laptop doesnt detect the plugged in charger. I tested the power cable using multimeter, and in shows 20.5v means it is in good condition. But when it is plugged in, the adapter will produce somekind of beeping sound repeatedly until i switch off the switch or disconnect the charger from the laptop.the sound is not loud but u still can hear it clearly. Is it a problem related to the power supply hardware inside the laptop? How much it will cost? Please help me if anybody here have been through the same problem with me.

I am facing a problem while playing any game on charger plugged in mode my laptop Lenovo G50-70 turns off and when I play the same game on battery mode it run flawlessly. Please help me out. It's so irritating because battery drains out in 1 hour. 

More replies
Relevance 73.39%

Symptoms:

1. It reads 99% available (Plugged in, not charging).
2. HP Battery Care Adviser tells me that the battery needs replacing.
3. Battery was losing a charge (Plugged in, not charging) whilst on the HP dock. I transferred it to the charge on the computer itself and it charged up to 99%. The dock still reads my peripherals (external hard drives) just fine.
4. I don't need portability with my notebook. The reason I have it is because I typically spend nine months of the year in one country and three months in another. Otherwise, I'd simply use a desktop. So, I've only used the battery without the charger in a handful of times.
5. Notebook is only eleven months old. I have no other problems.
6. I run Vista 32bit SP1
7. I read online that a BIOS flash may solve the problem. I'm not too keen on a BIOS flash; but I checked just to make sure, and yes, HP released a new BIOS 7-2009. My own is, of course, a year old.

Thoughts:

1. notebook runs fine; if it ain't broke don't fix it.
2. This computer is like the Berlin wall of my life. If this goes, the whole thing goes; so I tend to be paranoid.

What do you think? Do I get a new battery? Do I just be fastidious about backups and not worry about it? Your thoughts appreciated.

Thank you.

Answer:Laptop Charger reads "Plugged in, not charging"

If you don't use it on battery then I would say no need to replace it - its not required for the proper operating of the computer. It does provide one nice feature, if the power goes out then you can keep running the laptop and not have it power off on you and lose your data. However being less then a year old I would be contacting HP and complaining, a battery should last more then that. If HP advises a BIOS update when you talk to them then I would do it, if it breaks its their fault, but it doesn't affect the data on the drive which if you care about then you'll already have it backed up to at least one other location.

The charger supplied with my Lenovo G700 recently stopped working completely (it was making a weird bleeping sound when plugged in as well), so I purchased another genuine Lenovo charger identical to the first. However, my laptop doesn't recognise that this is an authentic Lenovo product and keeps telling me that I'm using an 'unauthorised battery', so my laptop can only be plugged in, and not charging. So far I've been unable to find a suitable fix on google. I'm reluctant to buy another charger as they are so expensive, in case I encounter the same problem again.  Any suggesions/experiences would be very helpful! Thank you  

Answer:Genuine Lenovo charger 'unauthorised', G700 not charging

If the original charger made strange noises, you might have damaged the power circuitry on the motherboard

I had this problem. It is related to Lenovo Power Management, and the electricity used by your house.You have to unnistall the Lenovo Power Management, and install the last driver.Buy an UPS (Uninterruptible power supply). I believe that's the only solution.Since I bought my computer in US, when it came to my country there were a difference between electricity, which was causing that problem. I have an UPS for all my system, especially for Y510P, and it's really rare to happen

I just bought a new Lenovo G50 about a month ago. The only strange problem I have picked up in the last 2 weeks, is that even when my notebook is NOT plugged into the charger, it still indicates that it is charging from an incompatible power source. Where my previous notebook, warned me on 10% battery left, my new Lenovo does not, because it is under the impression that it is 'Charging'.The battery life is not really affected and when plugged in, it charges the battery normally.Can anyone help me with a solution, before I take it back to my supplier. I know simple fixes like this can take up to WEEKS if I have to take it in. Thank you in advanced.

Answer:Lenovo G50 NOT plugged in, but 'charging'.

hi dentonbronkhors,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Can you try these steps:
 
  Open Device Manager and look Under Batteries, Right click and uninstall the item Named Microsoft SCPI compliant control method battery.
  Shut the computer down instead of doing a restart like the computer ask.
  Now Remove the Battery and Unplug the Ac adapter, Hold the poer button down for at least 10 sec.
  Turn the computer back on and See if that resolves the issue.
 
Let us know your findings
Cheers!

I have been using my lenovo Y50-70 since the past 1 year to play games like witcher 3 and Fallout 4. Recently, when I started playing Metal Gear Solid 5 and Battlefield 1, I have been facing some issues with the battery. I usually keep the charger plugged in while gaming, Since the laptop needs to be plugged in for better performance.  But recently, my laptop automatically stops charging randomly in between eventhough it is connected and the power button and the charging led start blinking.  As soon as i unplug the charger and put it back on, it starts charging again. But after sometime again stops charging and lights start blinking. I've noticed that this happens faster when I'm playing a game vs. when I'm doing something else.

Hi rohitreddy77,
 
Thanks for Posting!
 
Try resetting the Battery gauge meter.
Turn OFF the computer and unplug the AC adapter.
Press the Novo or OKR Button to boot up with options.
Select Set up utility or Enter Setup
  You should arrive at a page like this

 
Now Stay on this screen without the AC adapter plugged in until the computer shuts off itself due to power loss.
This will drain the battery to zero (May take couple of hours)
 
Now Plug in the AC and charge it till 100% and it should be good to go.
 
Regards
Solid Cruver

My Lenovo G700, which is a week old, is saying that it is "plugged in, not charging". It was working fine until last night when I closed the lid to put it into sleep mode for the first time. I have checked that it is set to maximum battery life and it is still not working. It's stuck on 98%. I am severely disappointed that something like this has happened a week into having my first Lenovo. I hope someone can help me rectify this problem.

hi Zadeth,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try to:
1. Turn off the machine and remove the AC adapter and battery
2. Hold the power button for 10secs then plug the AC adapter back in.
3. Turn the computer ON and when it gets to Windows, slide the battery back in place and observe the charge.
 
Alternatively, try to use the battery charge until it asks you to plug the AC adapter and observe if the charge goes all the way to 100%.

can you check power management for if there is any battery reset option? also please try this: remove the battery, un-plug the ac power, press power button for 30-40 seconds, replace the battery and check if it works.

Could anyone please advise a solution: my Lenovo Flex 2-14 (Windows 8) is suddenly showing "plugged in, not charging" message. It is completely impossible to use it if it is not plugged in, as soon as you unplug it just goes dead. I have already tried the uninstall Microsoft AC Adapter way and it didn't help. Has anyone else had this exact issue? Thank you!

Answer:plugged in, not charging - Lenovo Flex 2-14

Hey, have you tried this -
1) Shut down the laptop and unplug the power supply
2) Press the power button for 40 seconds
3) Reconnect and start the laptop
 
Have you tried doing the "Battery Guage Reset" functionality?

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad 510 80SV0037ED (plugged in , not charging)

Hi AhmedMagdyy,Have checked in Lenovo Settings app if Conservation Mode is enabled. Conversation mode is under the battery icon of the app. If enabled, kindly disable the feature. Conservation mode helps extend the battery life of the tablet/laptop by limiting the max charge the battery can hold. Hope this helps.Cheers,

My battery was charging fine and then I clicked on the battery icon today to open up and the menu and it went from telling me the battery was plugged in and charging to plugged in and not charging. It was like clicking the icon turned off the charging capability. This is a brand new computer, I've only had it for a couple weeks. The battery and adapater are both okay according to OneKey Optimizer, so I can't figure out why it's not charging. Currently running Windows 10 if that helps.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 3-1120 Plugged in, not charging

Does your battery stay at about 60%?  If so, then there actually is no problem.  Lenovo Flex 3 has a feature called "Conservation Mode," which keeps the battery from charging all the way.  This will supposedly increase the lifespan of the battery, which is a good thing, since the battery isn't meant to be replaced.  If you want to charge the battery normally, just click on the battery guage on the taskbar.  You'll find the setting there.

Hello, I have a lenovo yoga 3 that I purchased last september 2015.  Recently, it has been shutting off at random and not turning back on for sometimes days at a time.  I updated the drivers and BIOS and everything else, and now it isn't even charging.  The laptop must be plugged in to turn on, and the only way to get it to shut down is to unplug it.  Just clicking on the shut down link only puts it to sleep.  And in the battery icon there are three dashes with the image of a plug beside it.  Any suggestions as to how to fix this issue?

Hi!My Yoga 500-15ISK Laptop seems to have a battery issue. For some time now, whenever I plug my laptop into the AC power, I get this message, e.g. "(% charge) available, (plugged in, charging)", however for some reason, the battery level actually stays the same even after a significant amount of time of being plugged in to the AC supply. Moreover, the battery icon initially shows the animated one which indicates charging is indeed in progress, then after a few moments, it will freeze on the estimated level.Before this, my laptop's battery usually charges relatively quickly. Also, I have not turned on the Conservation Mode so it must charged up beyond 50-60% especially if I leave it plugged in overnight. This issue is really bewildering me right now. Any comments or suggestions on how I can address this issue?Thanks!Other notes re my laptop:It's been around 10 months since I've bought it and I have encountered this issue only a few days ago.I have no other issues with it.

Hello everyone, I hope everyone's doing fine.Anyways, I've been having battery troubles with my laptop which has the specs: Lenovo B560Core i3 370MBios - 39CN16WWRAM - 4GBWindows 7 - 32bit Now, the issue is that the original battery which came with the laptop is done with...I mean if I unplug the laptop, it takes just a couple of minutes and the battery drains out. I have been searching for the battery in the market and I did find some but now when I connect the "new" battery, I get "plugged in, not charging" when I hover over the "battery" icon in the tray.  I went through the details on the sticker of both the original battery as well as the new one and the only difference I found was that mine said "48000" where the other one says "44000"...Can that be the reason behind this problem? Also, I cannot find the battery with 48000 in the market or online. Can anybody please shed some light on this? I did try the method of turning off the laptop, removing the power cable and battery and pressing the power button for a couple of seconds. That didn't work either. Thanks,Abdullah

Answer:Lenovo B560 battery "plugged in, not charging"

Try to release charge, - turn off the computer, remove AC adaptor and battery. Press and hold power button for 15-30 seconds, and power on the machine again.Also you can try reinstal energy management driver.

I have Lenovo G500s which has problem with charging. When I plug in power cable to laptop then Power managment shows that Plugged in, not charging . But if I change the setting in Energy mangaement -battery-maximum battery life, then Power managment shows that Plugged in, charging. Why is it that the system does not show a similar message in the setting in Energy mangaement -battery-optimized battery life?

Hey srkv121,    welcome to the forumsOn1. Optimized battery run time, the energy managment completely charges the battery to ensure maximum battery performance2. On best battery health, energy management charges only 50% of the battery, it ensures maximum battery life but not performance  hope this helpsregards

Recently my T410 laptop has had issues with charging the battery, the battery is plugged in and not charging.I have attempted updating the firmware for the battery, it failes half way through as the battery cannot be not identified.The lenovo power mannager does not resolve the issue either as it cannot detect the battery. Any advice on diagnostics or resolutions would be greatly appreciated, as after contacting lenovo support, they simply told me to replace the battery. Which I am happy to do but only as a last resort.

Okay, so my keyboard dock works fine. I restarted it once (paperclip method) after dying on me, but afterwards nothing was really wrong with it. Now, the tablet's battery is acting funny. At first, I thought it was just my keyboard dock not charging my tablet, so I detatched the keyboard, and the tablet completely shut off. I plugged the AC adapter into the tablet, and it came back to life, but it would not charge at all. The keyboard dock would be at 100%, but the tablet itself would only be at 8%. I have installed the Lenovo Dependency Package thing and the firmware update, but it didn't change anything. Now, even though it says (plugged in, charging) on my tablet, it's not really charging. So, whenever I unplug the tablet or detatch the tablet from the keyboard dock, the system completely turns off because it's only at 8%. Please help me! Thank you!  EDIT: Okay, so I unplugged the AC adapter while the keyboard dock was on and then Battery #1, the tablet battery, drained down to 0%, and its status is now Plugged in, not charging, while Battery #2 is plugged in, charging. I also got a pop up notification saying there's an error in battery #1, see replacement options. I clicked it, but it was a dead browser link.Also, when I go to the Support app, it says under messages that my battery is not valid... but I don't know how that happened. I've only had my Helix for about 2 months now.

Welcome to the forum.   First, have you already updated to latest BIOS and installed this dock firmware update?
 
Also, could you check the battery health setting as per this tip?

Hi,

I have a Lenovo Z50-70 running Windows 8.1. The laptop is relatively new, bought in Jan. 2015.

Some time ago, the original battery suddenly started to have a problem where it would say 45% available, plugged in, not charging. No matter what fixes I tried (after looking through a lot of articles, posts, comments, etc.), nothing made the battery start charging again. It always stays at 45%. Also the battery light/indicator on the front of the laptop is always blinking white.

So I got a new battery, put it in hoping that it would work and charge up to 100%, but the new battery is having exactly the same problem as the original old one! It will only charge up to 45%, then it says plugged in not charging. The battery light is again always blinking white.

What do I do? How can this be fixed? What's going on?

Appreciate any help. Thank you very much.

check the warranty is still active, as thats one route you could take with a relatively new laptop.

also, try uninstalling the energy management and restart the system and check for the issue. also try uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI from the device manager and restart the system and check for the issue. for more info on this action see this thread in the link:
