Acer Aspire one netbook goes to "critical battery" randomly.

Asked by Wyatt Spellman on 2011-03-30

During the the duration of use of my computer. The battery will suddenly go from a full or partially full battery to critical battery and then hibernates immediately. I will then turn the computer back on and the battery is back at full or partially full. This problem happens at least twice during a 1/2 hour use

Thanks for the help, the second website that you linked me to was extremely helpful it told me exactly what was wrong. And the acer aspire one that i have is known as the 532h. With the Ubuntu this happens with every 532h model. An update of the BIOS from the acer website fixes the problem. Thanks again
