    Exclamation Battery charges and discharges continuously

    Hello. I have a HP G60 445DX laptop and a 10.8V 4160mAh battery. I'm currently using Ubuntu 11. If I work with the battery plugged in, it constantly charges and discharges, as you can see here:

    If I let the battery charge with starting ubuntu, it charges correctly, so it's not a hardware problem.

    If you need any more info just tell me.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance

    Try an alternative battery measuring tool to check... i've had the odd problem with "power management" , it showed odd stats, i stuck an "acpi battery" screenlet on screen and it was much more precise and useful.

    sudo apt-get install screenletsyou'll find it in : Applications - Accessories - Screenlets

    dunno if this 'll help?

    Thanks for your reply! I think it's not a measuring problem, the laptop battery charging led also switches on and off constantly. Anyways, I'll try what you have just advised me.

    I have the same problem (Dell Mini 9); the machine was supplied from new with Hardy Heron, but the problem only started when I upgraded to 11.4 this spring. I don't know whether this is hardware, BIOS or software. I haven't found a solution.

    It's annoying, but not critical
