Hi @indrareddy ,

Do you have Win 7 (32-bit) installed?

If so, you could try uninstalling the Lenovo Energy Management software, recharging the battery to 100% and then reinstalling the "latest" available energy management software suitable for your laptop from Lenovo.

If this doesn't work you may either have a faulty battery or power adapter.

Hopefully this is of some help
