I have a Dell inspiron 1150. when I was running Ubuntu off the live CD, it told me the battery level fairly accurately. now that I've taken the plunge and installed it, it stays at 100%. now I did some research, and someone put forth the idea that if it works off the CD but not off the hard drive, it's a BOIS problem or a hardware problem not the fault of the OS. I'll accept this, if indeed it's the case, but how do I fix this problem? as it was working under windows, should it not also work under Ubuntu?
need advice, please and thank you.
