Did you check out battery status in setup by hitting F2 in boot menu? Did you see your battery's health in Windows. I am running Dell 1545 and Dell 1525 both with Ubuntu as primary. I also ran into battery related problems recently. Replacing it solved the problem.

It is almost certainly a hardware issue. Get a new battery.
