I am running linuxmint 16 release candidate (so based on ubuntu 13.10) and have the battery issue. When running at 100% charged with power supply connected it shows as 0% charged. Looks like incorrect figures in /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0 maybe.

My laptop is Compaq Presario C740.

I dont think its really a BIOS issue per se, after all it worked fine in linuxmint 14 and 15. Its sounds like the the kernel (maybe) is not reading the battery state correctly for some reason.
