Ok so for a few months almost a year, my battery from my Lenovo y560p laptop wouldn't hold a full charge, it then had the windows replace your battery warning. Then, since I'm going to buy one anyway, I did the freezer trick, thawed it on paper towels and now when I plug it in it now says "charging, plugged in, 0%" and I left it for about an hour and a half and it still says that, so then I booted into bios and tried to charge it from there, no dice. And the battery led on the front is doing its flashing red as if the battery is low/dying...which if is. And it won't boot when it's not plugged into the AC adapter, did the freezer trick kill the battery?

It probably just happened after the "freezer trick" by chance, I have an HP that one day decided the battery just wasnt going to charge anymore.

Same issue, it starts off saying "charging, plugged in, 0%" then after a few minutes it changes to "not charging, plugged in, 0%"
