X230t win 8 battery 100% and maintains load


I am running Windows 8 on my X230t. All drivers are up-to-date of Lenovo (using system update 5).

I don't use a lot of my battery. I've used several times in the past without problem. However, today, I charged my battery about 70%, and when he reached 100%, he wouldn't charge. I tried to use another AC adapter, restart the computer, remove the battery discharge and then recharge the battery, but nothing worked. The electric windows icon sayins 100%, hip, charge. Green also the charge status LED indicates that the battery is charging. This happens even when the computer is completely shut down. Don't know what to try next.

Furthermore, I installed all drivers Lenovo & software for Windows 8 power management, but the typical Lenovo Power Manager with the thresholds of load custom does not appear on my computer. I have only access to the Windows default power manager. I don't know if the crib Lenovo Power just does not work on my computer or if Lenovo has not yet release a power manager for the X230T running Windows 8.

Thanks for any help!

    No, there is no way to do it. You can move the data to the new computer

  • X61s maintenance manager/battery power and win 7 power management

    I know that my beloved Thinkpad is almost an antique, but I was struggling with the Lenovo Power Manager utility, after a fresh install of Win 7 Home Premium.

    First, it seems like the Lenovo's PM and the management of Aboriginal food Win 7 can have values in conflict for similar parameters (such as low and critical battery levels, for example).

    Most importantly, I can't get the battery maintenance functions in the Lenovo PM to do anything. If I say to manage the level of load to the maximum lifetime, battery charging to 100% and just stay there. If I use the laptop on battery and put back in charge, same thing - it costs just 100% and stays there.

    In addition, reset battery does not seem to do anything either. It is pretty hard to tell if it is still running. What seems to happen, is that I'll go through the steps, and the large button flashes slowly. That means it is running? But in any case, nothing happens. The battery is just sitting there fully charged.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    I have no advice to give, but I can confirm that my X61s with Win7-64 and PM v6.64.2 seems to work very well. I have thresholds of 30% battery charge / 80% of the value. PM keeps the battery charged within this range.

  • Battery problems and speaker

    I have two concerns with my Toshiba NB200 netbook / 00 Q.

    1. the battery

    I always on the use of all the power connected to the AC. When I finished I turn off my computer and when I'm sure it's out I have unplug the AC plug and put away the computer. When I restart the computer I first connect the AC plug and then turn the computer back on, but the battery is always red and "load". Is this a bad battery? Why is it loads if its only source was AC? Specifically, I make sure I have press 'closed' and not hibernate or stand-by.

    2. speakers

    Does anyone else have this problem where, without a helmet, speakers tend to seem stronger on the right and it is very difficult to hear whatever it is on the left. I checked the realtek and volume settings, but the speakers are "centered". any help is appreciated.

    1. it will be certainly charging because he will have lost a few percentage points of full load (at least) depending on how long it has been turned off. If you have some things turned on in the BIOS as the sleep and Charge, then he will lose even more power.

    If you very well use only on AC so you should disconnect the battery completely and only connect the battery up to keep that it loaded somewhere between 40% and 60% of full load. This will prolong the life of your battery.

    I would first determine how much battery is being sold out in 24 hours when it is off, and then we can see if there is anything that can be done to reduce this amount.

  • Lenovo x 240 battery observations and investigations [trendy not supported]

    Hi, have a few observations and questions about the 240 x battery. 1 have not really noticed before, but when you plug the charger, the news of support for internal and external battery should read "connected, charge '? 2. I noticed that the mine only has 1 (internal or external) that reads "plugged in, charging" while the other is not (plugged in, do not load)-I first thought once we're in charge, another would activate and fresh, but it's apparently is not. 3 have not really found the problem, i.e. the hardware or software. Sometimes it's the internal battery that costs, sometimes it is the other - I have two defective batteries? Is this a software problem? Here are the things I have tried/tested 1. I uninstalled the device drivers in the same device, rebooted - Manager. 2. install / re-installed the driver of lenovo power manager - nada. 3 tried to recharge the laptop while it is off - voltage and both got fully charged! Someone has the same problem? appreciate the advise / help and thanks in advance.


    Thanks for the reply and my apologies for the late reply.

    Took the time to observe the laptop, but I guess I found my answer.

    It seems that the laptop is not simultaneous battery internal and external. Noticed it imposes outside first, then residents. Looks like that's how it really works. Fortunately for me not to send my laptop warranty or buy a spare battery.

    Thanks again and happy to be part of the community of Lenovo.

    See you soon and good new year!

  • Z220 CMT: firmware Win 8 factory 7 and install new boot disks (RAID 1)

    My Z220 came with the copy of Win 7 Pro/64-bit factory-loaded, lowered to win 8. The supplied HD is just a Seagate 500 MB to 6 MB/s SATA drive.

    I want to change my boot disks for a pair of WD series RE 1 TB disks in a RAID1 configuration.

    The 220 came with a series of restore disks: disks of recovery system 1,2 and 3 for Win 7 and a DVD of recovery Driver for WIn7 and WIn8, as long as the DVD of the operating system - Windows 8 Pro.

    So, if I install the pair of RAID array using the Intel RAID software, can I then use CD Win7 game to restore the Win7 system to the new RAID array? Is there a potential problem of activation here?

    My other idea was to use Clonezilla to clone the current Win7 system on the RAID array, but I don't know if it will work, as the discs in question are not the same...

    If you look at your partitions on the disk HP of the computer/manage/storage/disk management you should see a hidden partition which you can draw the active OS itself and also to make an installation USB or CD/DVD set.  But you already have those in hand, I believe.

    The restore thing can be confusing.  What I would do, is get a stunt or set of disks drive and start experimenting.  One of the disks is an "Activator" disc which you start with, and it gives you instructions as you go along with a clean installation, including installation RAID or simple installation on hard/SSD options.  Just keep your 500 GB out of the workstation and work with the readers of stunt.  For those, I liked the 80 GB WD Velociraptors... two correspondent off eBay are cheap, and they are quick to reformat/load/erase.  It will start to make sense fairly quickly.  For RAID works, you can experiment on 2 160 GB drives, but a full install of W7 with Office 2007 is less than 45 GB.  You just start from this first optical disc and start digging.

    The thing about the COA... When you perform a clean discs HP restore, as if your HP hard drive has failed, the process puts on a HP OEM COA serial number that is different from what is on your COA sticker.  For example, you can clone a facility and it will work on an another Z220 CMT without activation.  It checks only the BIOS of the workstation to make sure that it is a legal installation.  If you try the same thing with a W7Pro64 OEM System Builder build the clone will work but will recognize that this isn't the same job that it has been installed on original and you give a few days to feed another series of COA number.

    A clone must come from the installation of restore HP OEM with the internal controls of HP and OEM HP serial number to make it work on another box without activation problems.  Stick to right side of things and you'll be fine.

  • BlackBerry Z10 battery discharged during the loading of the next day

    Interesting to note, that I just got my Z10 a few days ago and have used my old BB Bold charger to charge my Z10 overnight. He worked for several days, but this morning I woke up and my battery had drained to load zero despite being plugged into the charger. I see reports of this occurring... If anyone has any suggestions, please comment! I was able to plug back in this morning and its currently, but I'm not sure why he would have discharged the battery completely while that plugged. I am with Verizon, and the last Verizon have made in OS:

    Your old "BOLD" do not recharge an optimal power needed on the Z10. the old charger can provide a lower power compensation charge.

    Use the OEM charger.

  • Win 7 (64) "sleep" and "hibernate": power supply for USB devices

    Hello: Just ordered a new PC with Win 7 Ultimate (64) and I need advice on creating a power plan. I learned the hard way with Vista Ultimate (32) that "sleep" and "hibernate" cuts the power of USB, such as UPS devices with battery backup. It was a bad function, since my UPS runs the software that automatically stops the system if necessary. However, when the Vista computer went to 'sleep', the connection to the ASI has been cut, while the UPS is no longer communicates with the central unit. Therefore, if stopped and directed were needed when the system is idle / "asleep", UPS might not make it. The only solution I could find was to create a custom power plan that stops the CPU (and that only updates the display on screensaver for X minutes and then turns off the screen). Obviously a question of wear for the system, being never in mode 'sleep'. Windows 7 behaves similarly, depriving USB power in "sleep" or "hibernate"? Will I need to apply the same workaround? Please notify. Thank you! daledoc1

    Right click on the USB device device manager concerned and select properties then power management and clear the option to Turn off energy-saving and activate the option to wake up from its sleep.

  • Unload the battery G450 and stop problem

    When this unit is operating in mode 3G as modem battery discharges and stops.
    I tried to remove and replace the battery, as is stated in the user manual, but still no results.
    Somethimes do this but not all the time.
    It is very annoing to find in the middle of a conference and stop.
    I tried to contact toshiba Romania, they said that another version of the software is under development for this device, but 5 or 6 months I did not hear anything on their part.

    Best regards!

    I do not joke with customers of Toshiba. Maybe you're on the wrong forum.
    At the top of this page says Toshiba computers support forum.
    AFAIK G450 is perhaps mp3 player or your phone, but certainly has nothing to do with computing.

    I recommend you contact your local dealer where you purchased this device and ask for help.
    If all goes well, they will be able to help you with this problem and propose the right solution.
