The problem occured after I formated laptop battery with Lenovo Energy Management. After battery charged 100% it started discharging. It discharged completly and laptop died. Laptop stopped detecting charger.
When I unplug the charger and plug it back in again, the laptop doesn't detect it (it keeps on draining the battery and does't prompt that a charger is connected). To make the charger work, I have to do following actions:
OS shut down
charger unplugged from laptop and wall socket
charger plugged to wall socket
charger plugged to the laptop
power button pressed once (laptop boots up)
after succesfull boot I can put back the battery
That is motherboard problem and i live in Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan doesn't have lenovo support center. And where to buy Lenovo Y580's motherboard?
