Lenovo battery "Plugged in, not charging"

Original title:Battery issue

I bough a lenovo laptop two months ago with windows 07 installed and I have already a problem with the battery. The icon constantly shows like the battery is "plugged In not charging". I brought the laptop back to the shop and it doesn't seem to be a problem with the battery and with charger neither. Does anybody know what that can be due?


This is not necessarily a technical fault.

Check your PC manual, the Lenovo support site, the Lenovo folders in Start menu All programs & the BIOS for a battery utility.  Several PCs have utilities with names like "Battery life extension" that will only charge the battery when its charge falls below some threshold such as 80%. 

If you search this forum for battery not charging, you'll see several examples of this.  Review the search results for ones concerning Lenovo PCs to get you to a solution more rapidly.
