Is there a software for a Lenovo Ideapad Flex 4-1480 that allow you to manage battery settings?

memewarren used Ask the Experts™
I have several Lenovo Ideapad Flex 4-1480 model 80VD that I am running into charging issues.  Most of the time it is stating 0% available, plugged in but not charging.  I had another battery that I installed in this same laptop that was at 40% but when I put it in this laptop it too just drained down to 0% available, plugged in but not charging.  Laptop is running Windows 10 Enterprise.

Leave out the OS. See if you can verify the battery charging state in the bios (some bios' offer that). Or boot some live Linux like knoppix to verify that.
