    Windows 10 64-bit

    Laptop charges only up to 60%


    Hello,

    I have a Lenovo IdeaPad G510, and when I bought it came with a software called Energy Manager, which allowed me to use an option that limited the charging percentage to 60 in order to extend battery life.
    Now, after the Windows 10 update, the software is gone and instead I get a software called "Power Manager", which does not have this option, so I am stuck with battery at 60%.

    Does anyone know what should I do ?

    Thanks

    If I remember correctly, the name change to conservative mode or something.
    If not, can you post the screenshot?

    Maybe try the Lenovo site for a download. I did an in-place W10 upgrade and Energy Mgr still works.

    "download and press it"???? Do you mean double click on the downloaded file?
    You should have got cagt26ww.exe when you downloaded.
    When you double click on it, it should extract files then start the install.

    Hi there
    Laptop batteries do eventually wear out and need to be replaced.

    However before you do that download ANY decent Live Linux Distro (you can run it from the DVD / external USB stick) without touching your internal Windows HDD and simply see if the laptop charges up more than 60% using the Linux OS.

    It's probably your battery though - probably gone defective.

    Cheers

    Windows

    I don't have a Lenovo but if the program still shows the program being listed as being installed you might want to run the repair function if it is available for that program. High lite the program and see if it is listed. Have you tried completely draining your battery till your computer turns off and then fully recharge it before use (The calibration might be off). There might be other Lenovo Models that use that program and you might be able to get it from those other models listings of programs.
