about a day or two ago i split my hard drive so that i run ubuntu on 30% of it and windows on the other 70%. every thing is working great on both systems but one thing. when i plug the power cord in it wont charge it wont charge on ubuntu or windows it says that the battery is at 1% and it doesn't go up. i can still use my laptop when its plunged in but that about all. any help would be greatly appreciated

Turn if off, take the battery out of the laptop, wait like a minute or two,put it back in, the plug the power source, wait a little more than turn it ON and see.
