    r u sure that ur battery isnt broken?
    if it isnt flashing and upgrading ur bios shud fix this issue.
    download the latest bios from ur laptop vendors website n install it.
    beware upgrading to a faulty bios may cos hardware failue so select the rite one.

    wat is ur laptop/desktop specifications??
    just go to the HP website in the download tab u ll find ur bios.
    if u r having windows on the same machine just download it u ll get a exe file run it.

    @OP: It sounds like the battery is shot, I doubt a BIOS upgrade would fix it. Get in contact with HP and see if they can help you troubleshoot it.

    Can you boot in to the bios when on battery and stay in there for a long period of time? Then reboot and try to load Linux and see what happens. It maybe just a bios update you need.
