    Hi guys,

    Today, I plugged in my laptop's charger, everything was fine until my laptop indicated it's "100% full charged" then I unplugged the charger and everything totally shut down. I connect the charger again, I found out my laptop is blinking with an orange light like 2 times every second, I hit the power button and it's working totally fine but when I unplug the charger it shut down again.

    So I'm seeking help with you guys what to do. By the way, I tried uninstalling then some battery driver in the device manager like most of the available youtube video regarding this issue and it didn't work.

    Laptop is Lenovo U430 Touch, Windows 10 and battery life is 6 hours(yesterday)

    The battery isn't working. The 100% charged is a false reading.
    You need to take it somewhere where the battery can be tested.

    I just went through this with a laptop. I bought a new replacement battery. It worked fine for 10 days, charging/discharging and supplying power. Then the light started flashing amber and it would not charge. Fortunately, I bought the battery locally and it comes with a 1 year warranty. I took the laptop and battery back to where I purchased it. They tested the battery and it failed so they gave me a new battery under warranty. Ihope this one lasts more than 10 days.
