Back to your problem, if, after leaving it for a long time as you have
described above, if you boot into windows does the battery show as
still virtually flat? If it shows that it is now at least partially
charged then the problem is not that it is not charging running
Ubuntu, it is just that the indicator is not showing correctly.
