[Bug 1088146] Re: Asus n56vz battery state is wrong or battery not charging at all.


Same problem here. I am running:

Linux Mint 17.1
Asus N550JV
3.13.0-24-generic kernel
BIOS: Version N550JV.207

I have send it for repair three times. First they changed motherboard,
then they changed battery, and the last time they gave ma a new charger.
The bug still appears. I had before Linux Mint 15, and the same thing
was happening.

Only way to fix it is to turn off hibernation and leave it to run out of
batteries. Next time I turn it on, battery starts to charge. Very

This is the last time I am buying ASUS.

  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!
