  Asus n56vz battery state is wrong or battery not charging at all.

Status in “upower” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have an ASUS N56VZ notebook. There are some bugs I have mentioned and they are known on ubuntu forums.
  Sometimes I am getting strange results in battery power state, that are not even close to be accurate.
  So bugs are:
  1) Then I am turning on the notebok with not enough power (3% for example) the fan is going to it`s full speed (no CPU loading at all) and the power indicator shows that power is insufficient. Plugging the power adapter didn`t solved the problem - it was not charging and notebook soon turns off. 
  2) As I described above, I can`t feed the notebook sometimes (especially on low battery level).
  3) I am getting the strange battery state result: sometimes it looks, that it`s charging very slow. Am am working about a hour and my power level just rised from 30 minutes to 40 minutes.
  4) I am not sure about this bug, may be it`s a hardware one, but then I turned notebook off with plugged in power adapter, it was not charged at all for the whole night!
