    Default Windows 8, Plugged in, Not Charging

    Good Day Everyone,

    I just purchased a new Lenovo Ultrabook Twist (Built in Battery that does not come out). It is less than 1 month old, and runs Windows 8. My battery will not charge more than 50% while it is plugged in. I receive the message "plugged in, not charging". I have read other posts stating, to uninstall the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery, turn the computer off, take out the battery, then put it back in.

    I do not have the ability to take the battery out of the Twist. I tried to uninstall the ACPI, and turn it back on, but it does not work.

    Can someone give me some advise on how to fix this issue?

    Please help,
    Kim

    I had this same issue, the problem is the APM(advanced Power Management) on the bios. to reset the APM turn off the computer, and then press the power button for 10 seconds, then release and wait to turn on. it should turn on and the battery value should be reset.

    Isn't there something on the Lenovo site to show/explain how to reset it.
