I use a Lenovo Ideapad z510 running Windows 8 x64 and earlier today, during a snowstorm, power went out. Later, power came back and I got on my computer. As I was using it, I — idiotically — lightly smashed my hands on the keyboard and my computer crashed.
I could only turn it on when running off of battery power only. Trying to turn it on with the plug in would either:
- Not let it turn on.
- Crash the computer a few seconds after turning on.
I have tried draining the battery then turning it on with the plug but it doesn’t seem to help. Running from battery works fine, however, I am having issues charging said battery. One of two things is happening right now:
- The battery is not charging at all, even when plugged into computer that is turned off
- The battery is charging very slowly when plugged into computer that is turned off
