Also had this issue on an N550JV with Ubuntu 12.04LTS. When booting into Win8 via grub the issue remained - battery would not charge, flashing amber light. Returned the machine.

I'm considering getting N56JR, at least that model has easy access to the battery compartment. I'm a Linux noob - what's the prognosis for a complete fix on a hardware compatibility issue like this?
