Having problems with your Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 Notebook ?

My battery in my Y510 Ideapad shows full charge but when I go to unplug my power cord the computer shuts down as if there is no battery in it. Is there any way to diagnose this problem? I always keep it plugged in and never drain the battery. The computer is only 18 months old...


Answers :

Check your power settings in windows set it for max run also Sounds like your battery shows the volts but no capacity 18 mo old this is very close to a replacement sugest aftermarket ebay battery Usualy when you do not run down lithium batteries they become unstable this means some of the cells in the battery hold less of a charge than others in the pack so this is the weakest link senario so you get the volts but when you put a draw volt brop right off and the computer shuts down. some times they can be reconditioned so all the cells hold the same cap but there is no warranty and cost about half of what a replacement battery cost. shop around.
You should let the battery drain occasionly.it keeps them longer.id say you have wore out the battery by constantly charging it.only other could be adapter is bad.
