battery is not recognized in ubuntu 11.04

Asked by Farouk Abdel-Azeem on 2011-09-14

unfortunately the battery is not recognized in ubuntu 11.04 in my laptop

I have Acer aspire 5745G laptop, I had so many problems with wireless, Bluetooth and battery

I solved all the problems except for the battery, it just tell me that "laptop battery is charged" and suddenly after the battery runs out, the laptop just turns off without any warnings or any indication that the battery is low

please help me, I'm losing my work because of this problem, also when I plug the power cable to use it, the battery become very hot after one hour but when I tried windows OS, it just works fine.

thank you
