If the laptop is old, chances are the battery is too old.

This problem started a lot of time ago,a year maybe after the warranty.. with windows the battery freeze the pc,now with linux work but don't charge.. but the led status is green.. so i don't know if the battery is savable or is permanently dead

Given that it's an Acer and people have reported short battery life on that brand I would think you need to replace the battery.
