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.)

Dear Lenovo, After perusing the recent 2016/2017 comments by multiple users on similar posts about Ideapad Z510 battery from across locations/countries - it appears that the firmware that you had issued last year - has somehow got overwritten / superceded maybe in either late 2016  or early 2017 by some more recent/latest updates. I am writing from India and facing the same probem that the battery is showing 100% and then going off almost immediately. This probem had fortunately got solved last year when you had issued a firmware update - but now when i am trying to use the same files again - it basically conveys that "no battery available to update" because that particular firmware is already applied on our laptop. Hence, can you please release newer firmware update for this same issue -  using a z510 system having current till-date updates for different OS - win 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 - same way as you have released for thinkpad series of laptops too on the weblink - http://support.lenovo.com/in/en/downloads/ds001322 Come to think of it - that if a fully working battery is being "prompted" as weak and "need to buy" - but actually is a fully functioning hardware - isnt it a bit of a letdown for your users??? - what to say of  some who might have already bought and replaced with newer replacement batteries - which is actually a completely avoidable cost? I am sure you need to resolve this issue soon so as to restore c... Read more

Hi guys,I have a one-year old Lenovo Z510, I have already flashed the battery firmware 5 months ago.Now the laptop shutoff at 35% of batter with no warning or notice that the battery is almost empty. This problem was occurring before the first firmware flash and that flash solved it. So please is there any other firmware update because I cannot flash the current firmware (same version).

I have tried every conceivable fix for it from the forums here and none has worked. The problem that I am having is that the battery is stuck at 99% while charging and when it is off charge it will stay on for half an hour and the shut off hard without warning, it has caused me to lose progress in work. The battery gauge reset is no longer working either as it was on for hours and just kept showing 99%. I would appreciate a response back. This seems to be a problem with this make of laptop as far as Ican see.

I have purchased Lenovo Ideapd Z510 about 1.5 years ago. Installed Windows 10 via Windows update 3 months ago. My laptop was working fine until now. 1 week ago I was editing some document and suddenly laptop got switched off without any notification. It did not shut down rather it turned off unexpectedly. Battery percentage shown before tuning off was 70%. I tried to power it ON as well as used Recovery Key, but nothing helped. I plugged in the charger and noticed charge indicator was RED, which means battery is low. I turned on the laptop again and now battery percentage shown was 0. SoI decided to perform Gauge Reset using Lenovo Energy Manager which in turn will calibrate the battery.
 
After two days I though it is fine now. But I kep on my laptop for 2 hours and battery life shown was still 94%. I understood that wrong info is being displayed. I generated enery report from command prompt by powercfg -energy. Once I opened the report I was surprised to see tha Last Full Charge value is greater than Design Capacity, which is absolutely weird. Now it takes two or three hours to charge completely from 99% to 100%. And even after lsitening to music, surfing web and editing multiple documents at once battery percent shown never goes below 94% and thatbtoo it takes more about 2 hours to go from 100% to 96 or 94%.

Hello,I have 3 quick issues.  I own a Lenovo IdeaPad Z510 laptop, which I recieved in December of 2013. When I first turned it on, everything worked, except that a screen popped up that says that the adapter is not fully capable of charging the laptop, and had a hyperlink to open  a windows to buy another battery/charger. Which I didn't particularly care for, until I went to the website. After looking around, I realized that there was, in fact, no available adapter/charger/battery to purchase for the Z510. After owning for several months, it no longer appears every time I turn it on. However, it will sporadically reappear and I wanted to know if anyone else had the same problem. When I turn my laptop off, it says that some programs are still running, and proceeds to show me what appears to be a picture of a blank window (it has no identification stating what the program is). I cancel the shutdown, but everytime I look for the program, I can't seem to find it. After scouring the internet, I have concluded that the said program is Intel Services Manager. I am unsure how to either uninstall/turn off the program so that it will stop showing up everytime I try turning my laptop off. Last question!Recently, when I started turning my laptop on, it wouldn't go to the lock screen. (I am running the most up-to-date Windows 8). It shows that black screen with the white Lenovo print, but does not go on from there. Only after I turn off the laptop and hold down th... Read more

Answer:Z510: Help! Battery percentage is not measured right . terra

hi O_G_A
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you charge the battery while the computer is off, aren't you still able to get 100% charge?
 
If the battery still doesn't reach 100%, can you try to download and run batteryinfoview to get a general information about the battery.
 
In addition, if you switch to a balanced power plan and toggle the Low battery notification and Low battery action under the Control Panel (icon views) > Power Options can you check if the low battery notification comes back.

After that reboot and install it back and see if there is a difference specially on the battery status. Also basing on your statement that the unit is with you for more than a year and you have not encountered any problem except recently it would seem that a battery replacement might be in order. Again before jumping into conclusion check the ac adapter and battery based on the procedure given in your hardware maintenance manual.

Dear All, I recently got an annoying problem in my Z510.A couple of weeks ago power manager suggested me to block battery charging to 40% to keep battery safe. Now after two week I got a message that the battery is weak  and need to be replaced. I bought this laptop in june bus since I changed the HDD with and SSD (I had to open the laptop) i guess the warranty is gone (or not?). Moreover, i tried to look online where to buy a new battery but I didn't find anything. On amazon there are batteries for all the models except z5100. Do someone know where to buy (Amazon preferentially since i need a really fast delivery cause i need the laptop ready for work in 10 days) a compatible battery? It's really urgent so any answer or help is welcome.  Many thanks in advance,Ventu

Hi There!Some Questions:1) Is the CPU of the Z510 on a socket so I could upgrade it?I saw a dissambling video, that looked like you could do that.And if one can do that: If you place a i7 on that board will the cooler be strong enough and is the battery able to keep up with the power needed from that i7?And if I'd go totally crazy and replace the i5 4200, upgrade that thing to 16gb ram and change the hard drive to an ssd: Will the battery just vaporize? SO: Is it possible to upgrade the 4cell battery installed in my z510? Thanks for your responses! Regards from Germany,Ruforion

Answer:Ideapad Z-500 - Battery firmware updated but still battery not charging

hi Aledef,
 
If you have the Lenovo Energy Management installed, can you check the following:
 
1. For Windows 7:
Ensure that Maximum Battery Life is selected
 
For Windows 8:
Ensure that Conservation Mode is disabled.
 
2. Uninstall the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method under the Device Manager > Battery
   - Link to picture
 
When finished, reboot the machine and observe if the battery is now charing above 59%. If the problem remains, try charging the battery while the computer (about 30mins) and see if it goes pass the 59% mark.
 
If the problem persists, I recommend you contact lenovo on how to go about getting a replacement battery.

Hello wonderful Lenovo user's and guru's! I have recieved a Lenovo Ideapad y550 from a pawn shop. I grabbed it because I knew this was a pretty good computer. I thought I could fix any problems it has and it would be just fine. =] So this laptop shuts down instantly if I unplug the power cord. Just dies, no time to do any saving or lights to blink. Just instant shutdown. Also when I try to power it on when its unplugged from the AC, it does nothing. Also shuts off in the middle of playing guild wars 2. No other games shut off on me. When I realized I had this problem, I ordered a new battery for my model of laptop. The new battery is doing the exact same thing as the other battery that was in it. It seems the computer has a fresh install of windows except with a .old folder in the C drive. So I am guessing someone did some sort of reformat or recover? the recovery was done through the Pawn Shop. It seems that it has windows 7 64 bit.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Despite the manufacturer's claim of 7 hours battery life on my Lenovo Ideapad 320S-14IKB - 81BN (S/N: MP1CHQTJ), I only get around 3-4 hours. This is with light usage, Reddit, a little bit of youtube etc. CPU usage was mostly around 0-5% the entire time. This was with the max CPU state in power settings reduced from 100% to 85%. However, I do have the screen at 100% brightness. As a different test, I tried doing (almost) nothing (apart from keeping the screen bright), and got 6 hours out of the battery. Is there a simple solution to increase this? It's only a 30 Wh battery (2 cell). Maybe in the future, a 60 Wh (4 cell?) one will come out for this model?

Hello everybody, Last week I installed Windows 10 64bit on my laptop (Ideapad z510). The first time my laptop suddenly powered off, but the battery was far from empty according to windows. When I tried to boot again it appeared that the battery was empty. I have noticed that the percentage that windows reports is incorrect. After 2 hours without power my battery was normally around 30%. Now it was still above 90%. I have power manager installed and I am using the balanced profile. Does anybody have an idea what could be wrong?

Answer:Ideapad Z510 battery problem

Hi niels194,
 
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

Answer:Ideapad Z510 low performance on battery mode

I have some info. I tested it. And what i found is:When i put AC adapter in laptop i have full power, then i disable AC adapter and power is lost, then i chage power managin to low, and change again to high performance ... and what i get ? i get full power without AC adapter. Next i put AC adapter into laptop and disable it, and again...low power, and again i change in power management to low and to high...and again i get high without cable. So what i can tell you ? Its not battery issue, because i can make it that it will work on battery on high performance. Its software problem. Tell me how to repair it ? Becuase when i turn on laptop without AC adapter, it doesnt matter what i switch in power management, it will dont go on maks power, after plug in ac adapter, power is back, and now i can disable it and change managment to low and high performance and its ok. Pls help

I bought my Ideapad Z510 in March 2014, its Windows 8.1. Last few days it shows "battery is weak, needs to be replaced". The battery does not charge, I have to power through AC cable, whenever I disconnect AC, its power is gone. In order to fix the problem, I did the following taks:1. I removed MIcrosoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery, and also Microsoft AC Adapter from Battery option. But after restarting the laptop, those options always reinstalled automatically without notifying. When I open Device Manager, those options are always there though those are removed and laptop is restarted.2. I reset the Gauge, but nothing happened.  I cannot understand why Lenovo provides such a poor quality battery. It is gone after 1 year!!! I cannot believe it! I have 10 years old DELL laptop and still I can use that battery for an hour. But my new Lenovo's battery has gone just after 1 year! Its a shame. Lenovo should respond about explanation that why they provide such poor quality battery. Any idea about resolving it?

Answer:ideapad Z510 "battery weak" issue

I have the same issue, bought the laptop around march of last year, and started experiencing the problems during the start of June.  I've seen many topics with this issue, with the same response from Mods and Admins. It's basically a substandard battery issue, and the only solution Lenovo gives us is to replace the battery (which are expensive with the relative cost of the laptop), and that doesn't even give us assurance that this issue will not happen again in a year or so. Very disappointing.

Before I begin, I have to admit that I tried to find a solution in these forums but nothing worked so far or I m not sure if the firmware/bios is compatibl with my specs . So here is my issue. -I was working on my laptop without the power adapter when suddently it switched off. I had at least 40% of battery according to the indicator. -After that the battery indicator stucked to 100%, even thought you could understand that this wasn't true -Two days later the battery indicator shows 0% and some times it goes to 100% for after a short time after  I reboot. So here are my questions. -Is there any z510 firmware that solved this issue ? ( windows 8.1)-Bios upadate ?-If not, .does Lenovo work on a solution? Or knows what is wrong?-I Think I bought my laptop 11 months ago. what proceess should I follow for having the battery replaced ?  kind regardsMiko

Hi
Anyone had this issue?

My battery indicator (Windows and also the Toshiba PM) don't show the remaining battey life in minute but only in percentage.
is it correct or there are some strage settings in power setting menu?

Thanks

Answer:NB200 - Battery indicator shows only battery life in percentage

Mine does the same, thats just how it is in XP. But I believe the Vista power saver shows the remaining time.

I think you will need to download a battery utility from the Internet to display the remaining time.

So I just downloaded OneKey Optimizer for my Lenovo Z50-70 and there's a green battery icon on the lower right corner of my desktop. Sometimes it'll display the battery percentage, but most of the time it'll display the predicted amount of time the battery has left to sustain my laptop. How can I change the program so that it only displays percentage?

Answer:OneKey Optimizer: Showing battery time instead of battery percentage

I'm having the same problem too. My mom has a Yoga 2 13 and for some reason it did not come with OneKey Optimizer already on it. I downloaded it today from Lenovo's website and though some of the options on that app are on my computer but not on her app on hers, it works just fine. However, I can't seem to figure out how to change her battery icon from telling her the approximate time until the battery dies to showing the battery percentage, like it does on mine.Every time she plugs in the charger, though, the battery percentage displays itself on her battery icon, no doubt because it can't exactly tell how long it will take the battery to run out when it is plugged in, but when she unplugs the charger cord, it reverts back to showing how many hours and minutes it will last. This is very frustrating to her. I haven't been able to find answers to this question anywhere on the internet, so I hope someone will promptly repost a solution to this problem.

Hi CuriousFox ,

To isolate fastest is to have another battery to use or charging the original battery on a known working compatible laptop.
The power checkout guide of the hardware machine manual provides steps to check battery charging integrity (example form Z510 manual page 21) .
 
You can also try plugging the laptop but not turning it on for 1-2 hours checking if there would be changes with the battery indicator LED.
 
Would it be the same using similar energy manager and operating system that came originally with the machine?
How is the battery health and battery report?

I have two Lenovo Y40-70 computers that I purchased within a couple weeks of each other.  They came with Windows 8.1 but I upgraded to Windows 10. A few months ago, I noticed that my computer battery meter was reading 100% for an hour.  I continued to work unplugged until the battery died while still reading 100%.  I recharged and the battery again read 100% for more than a couple hours, then died.  So the battery lifetime is as good as always, but the reading is not right.  When I reboot, it still reads 100%. Strangely, the second system, whcih I had not used for a while, was OK, but a few days later, it started doing the same thing (though it was reading 87%, the charge when the computer last worked right.  I suscpect that this happened after a critical update, which the second system went through later. Recently, I downloaded from the Lenovo website the newer power management software on both computers, and it did not help. Then I noticed the Battery recall so downloaded the "Lenovo Battery Utility 2015" to see if my system was afffected by the problem.  When I run the utility, I get the mssage "No Battery Detect."  So it would appear that there may be an issue with the software detecting the batter. Since I can't know the state of the battery (it appears to not want to recharge until it's empty, I gues because it thinks it's 100% charged), I cannot count on this computer when it's not plugged in. Now I ...

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.

Hi friends, I have a peculiar problem. More than an year ago I purchased a Lenovo Z510 which worked well. Unfortunately, just after an year of the purchase, the battery started posing a problem. I spoke to the concerned in India who promptly rejected my plea for a new battery. As such the battery was not taking any charge and remains at 0% of power. The service personnel tested it and concluded that the battery was weak and needed replacement. For all reasons, I did not purchase new battery. Recently, I was to format my laptop for some other reasons and during the course of time it started taking charge even to the extent of 100% and worked for about an hour which in fact was amusing. But my concern is all about the event as to how and why it is happening. My other question is that how long it would go. Was it because of formatting and subsequent updates!! Kindly throw some light and reason it please. DVKNRao

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.

Greetings! I have a Lenovo Z510 8GB Ram, Core i7, 1tb hdd, which I purchased less than a year ago. Off late I've been experiencing major battery problems. It started off with the laptop randomly shutting off without any warning, even though there was considerable life left, for eg. 90 pct or so. This became worse when the laptop didn't start up at all, until I plugged in the charger. The only way I can now operate the laptop is by connecting to charger, but the battery still remains at 0 pct, doesn't charge. The battery light keeps blinking red, Also, I have used an application BatteryInfoView to analyze this, and it says teh battery still has 83 percent of its original capacity, However I receive a message everytime on startup saying the battery is weak and needs to be replaced.

Answer:Lenovo z510 unauthorized battery warning help

hi cy96,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try these steps:
1. Shutdown the machine, let the battery charge (30mins to 1hr) and observe the battery light indicators.
    - Link to picture
 
2. Uninstall the Lenovo Energy Management / Manager software from the Control Panel (classic view) > Programs and Features. When finished, restart the machine and observe.
 
If the unauthorized battery" is now gone but the battery isn't charging, uninstall the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method under the Device Manager > Battery then reboot and observe.
   - Link to picture
 
If the above steps doesn't work then you will need to contact lenovo on how to go about getting a new battery.
 
Support phone list
 
 
Let me know if the above steps works for you.
 
Regards

 Hi, This could be coincidence, however it seems unlikely. I made the rash move of upgrading my Z510 to W10, since then the battery will not charge.  It says its "0% Charging" or "2hrs 32min to full charge", but this never changes. Other than this the laptop is fine. Obviously if you disconnect the mains power the laptop immeadiatley powers down (it seems to manage to hibernate most times but not always). I now also get a message popping up which says 'Weak battery needs replacement" Before the upgrade to W10 I had no battery issues at all could happily work for several hours on battery. It seems to coincidental to not have something to do with the upgrade. Any ideas? Chris

You can google it on how to go about it in case you don't know how.

I purchased Z510 a year and 3 months ago, I really enjoyed it's performance and stability. but after installing windows 10, I faced the usual battery issue that most of the users here complained about, and I upgraded the firmware and everything went fine after that. but 2 weeks ago, I opened the laptop to find that the battery is 0% and it's plugged in but not charging, The Energy manger was confused too sometimes by showing me a message of "Unauthorized battery" and sometimes it detects the battery but it remains 0%. so basically I was working on a laptop with no battery after a while the laptop started to restart frequently, till the situation was unbearable. I sent it to the support and they told me that it needs a new battery and a motherboard and they will cost me more than 50% of the laptop price. I don't know what to do now? I'm really pissed from Lenovo support here in Egypt, they don't even know what they are doing and their first diagnoses was even wrong and I had to ask them for a second one to solve the frequent restarting problem. Any suggestions or recommendations?By the way, The restarting thing never happened to me while in Safe Mode, does this mean anything?, I already reinstalled the windows 3 times.

Answer:Lenovo Z510 is Dead, Motherboard and Battery

I have ALL same problem too. It hasn't been three years as well and the motherboard broke. i wasted a lot of money for this laptop since I bought the i7 core version. And mother board replacement is VERY expensive. WTH lenovo.

Hi,  I have an Ideapad Z510 with Windows 8 since a few days ago. My problem comes when i tried to use the power management app. When I try to manage this, I found an error message that tells me that my battery is not genuine and I can´t use this power management.  The computer is new, buyed at Mediamarkt (Spain) last week. I tried to reinstall drivers from official Lenovo's website, but the problem is still there. I likes a lot this computer but, with only a few days with me I find this problem. I'm worried about battery life if I can't manage the power. May I tried to refund the machine to mediamarkt? Thanks

My Lenovo IdeaPad Z510 shuts down after 30-40 minutes when running on battery, without any notification. The battery level displays 99% battery.I've tried various troubleshooting steps, including gauge reset, charging for 10 hours when shut down, charging couple of times in BIOS mode. The energy manager says battery health is "normal". Battery report says :DESIGN CAPACITY43,200 mWhFULL CHARGE CAPACITY48,000 mWh My laptop is under warranty, but service center has refused to replace battery because report says it's healthy. Kindly provide some solution.

Answer:Z510 automatically shuts down at 99% battery, when running on battery

Could your processor be overheating? If it gets too hot there is an auto-shutdown feature to prevent hardware damage. What kind of work are you doing when this happens? HW Monitor and CPU-Z can give you temperature information.

Dear,  Hi. I just bought Lenovo Z510, 6GB Ram, Nvidia 740m, 1 TB Hard Drive.  I noticed when i'm playing or like opening stuffs like browsers and applications it became lag when the charger is unplugged. And then when I plugged in the charger everything became smooth and very good performance. So what could be the problem? I tried making the max performance in battery options right side of the corner below the screen (near the time)Also I tried changing the high performance mode in Energy Manager application. Also I tired changing the Power Option in Inter HD Graphic Control Panel when On Batter = Maximum Performance. And it seems like it doesn't change at all. It still laggy.

Answer:Lenovo Z510 Battery Problem (Plugged in = Smooth, Unplugged = Laggy)

I think overlocking something might work but it is kinda dangerous too. So I guess turning the option conservation out of energy management settings to 60% is the best way.

Hey, I own a Thinkpad E220 (5380-CTO) and the "Lenovo Thinkpad Toolbox" gives me daily alerts that I have a "critical battery issue". The link leads me to a page to download and update the battery firmware. "Battery Firmware Updates for Main and Slice (external) batteries - ThinkPad Edge E220s, Edge E420s, X1" http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?DocID=HT062049&AID=10429688&PID=3719336&CJURL=http%3A%2F... I've gone through all the steps to update the firmware numberous times, including doing the battery recalibration and I STILL get the daily "critical battery error message". Please help, the daily scans eat up RAM and it's annoying that I have to cancel it daily. The battery, from what I can tell, works otherwise. Thanks!

Answer:Solved: Edge 11 AMD K325 - Battery Problem need Battery Firmware update?

Hello mate, You don't have a problem with your battery. My T510 indicates the same with a 57wh. Under average usage patterns your ThinkPad battery maintains approximately 70% of its power capacity for the first year of operation. Average usage is defined as the number of recharge cycles. A cycle is defined as each time the battery discharges a total of 85% or more and is recharged it counts as one cycle.

Seems like internal battery memory was corrupted due to flashing interruption.
I assumed the root cause is internal software error.
 
I've tried the same on Windows 7/8/XP with all LnvBFU revisions (from v1.2 till v1.15) without any success.
 
But LnvBFU.exe still recognizes the battery, it still able to start flashing.  
And I still have hope to install battery software correctly.
 
Dear Lenovo experts:
1. Please provide steps to correct this error.
2. Please advise how can I get logs of LnvBFU to figure out what's wrong.
3. Please fix this issue in the next LnvBFU revision.
 
Thanks in advance.

Answer:Battery Firmware Update has killed Brand New E420 battery

Hi, I have a comparable problem over here. Got a brand new Lenovo Yoga 260 three weeks ago, worked completely fine until last wednesday. Processed some lenovo updates including Lenovo Solution Centre and Power Management and now my battery is dead. Everytime i turn on my Yoga 260 i get a battery error message after a few minutes that says the battery is not charging and it should be replaced due to a bad condition. When i open up Lenovo Settings and search for energymanagement it displays the same message telling me the battery is defect due to normal wear and it should be replaced. My problem is that the battery worked completely fine until the moment i installed some Lenovo software updates. I hope lenovo support can provide steps to correct this error instead of forcing me to return it and wait 2 -3 weeks. Thanks in advance.

Hello! I am new to Lenovo and picked up my 1st laptop yesterday when my HP died. I have always had HP and grew tired of how easy they break & poor battery life, so I wanted to try a different band. I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed. I have done my fair share of google searches and many people have had these same issues too, but no good solutions outside of deep computer hacking, I don't want to have to do that on a brand new computer. Thanks for any and all help!

Ever since a recent trip I took my Lenovo will not charge. When I tried charging my laptop on the trip I thought it didn't work because the plug outlet was out of position and messed up in the hotel I was staying. But then, when I returned home and tried to charge my laptop it still would not charge. When I plug it in and everything the red light blinks and blinks but no matter how long I leave it there it will not charge. When I  try to turn the laptop on (with the charger) it makes the beeping sound it usually made before when I plug the charger in except it keeps on beeping as if I pulling the charger out and putting it back in every half-a-second. And then, the laptop only starts up for  a few secons before it shuts off again. When I turn the laptop on (without the charger)...well, it just doesn't turn on. I just want to know if the problem is with my charger or the actual battery or something else? Any suggestions?
