I have a Lenovo ideapad y50.70, and it's battery wont charge to 100%, only 55%.
This havent been a problem since i got it, it started this week.

Is it a simple solution to this, or is it somehing wrong with my computer?
Sorry for my english, but it's not my first language ;)
(It's two months old, and have been taken well care of)

Its set up like that its not a fault. Go into lenovo power manager and there is a setting somewhere like "maximum battery life" or something, you can change it to charge fully or set parameters. If you get stuck ring lenovo they are excellent. Basically it is set like that so the battery doesn't wear out when u use the mains power all the time

Videographer got this pretty much on the head. The power management software prevents the battery from being charged past 60% or so in order to extend the life of the battery. If you typically use it on battery, then you may want to change the settings to allow a full charge.
