    Hey,

    I just got my computer back from having the motherboard switched out because of another problem, but now my battery will not charge. The light is on and it says it is charging, but it isn't. Should I attempt a gauge reset or something else?

    It is a Lenovo y50, which I have had for 3 months. The battery needs to be unscrewed from the back.
    Thanks!

    If it is not charging maybe the battery is defective.
    Did they gave you back the original charger?
    Did they install another different motherboard which might use a different charger?
    You may need to contact the person who repaired it to find out.

    I never thought about the charger. Do different motherboards need different chargers?

    P.S. Found that i charges, just up to 47%

    If you have Lenovo power manager installed, check that the settings are set to fully charge vs a set parameter.
