Many of us are prone to leave a laptop permanently on standby rather than turning it off. Turn off your Lenovo Laptop then unplug the charger. Wait a minute, then remove the battery from the laptop for a couple of minutes. Press the Power button for 30 seconds without anything connected to it (no battery or charger connected). Then put the battery and power adapter back in and turn on your laptop to see if it charges.

If its solution fails after resetting your laptop, the issue may be a hardware problem in your laptops such as an out-of-date battery driver or missing driver. We will look at how to resolve these shortly.

Disable this threshold setting in your power settings then save the change. Turn off your computer then unplug the AC adapter. Wait a minute, then remove the battery from the laptop for a couple of minutes. Press and release the power button for 30 seconds without anything connected to it (no battery or charger connected). Then put the battery back in and turn on your computer to see if it charges.
