    Could you please explain more about the problem and what makes you think that you need to update this driver? Is there a hardware conflict in device manager?

Touchpad and keyboard no respond


The problem for the Acer Aspire 3000 series is into the chipset battery, that comunicate to the PC through a serial protocol (probably I2C) to sent information, charge, status, etc.
Due to an ACPI bug, the battery module is not recognized by Windows. Bios upgrade doesn't solve the problem.

To solve the proble there are three ways:
- change the Hal driver to "PC standard"
- disable (not uninstall) the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery " and "Microsoft AC adapter"
- unplug the battery for 1 minute and re-plug it (with windows running).

The first metod work fine but Wi-Fi doesn't wok. All the rest of hardware yes, "Suspend" not possible, you must torn off the PC manally. Not Good!

The second is the right. It work only if your PC (HAL driver) is configured at "PC uniprocessor ACPI", see Microsoft documentation for help (HAL options after Windows Xp setup...).

The best way is to install a fresh Windows Xp, WITHOUT BATTERY INSERTED!!!. Windows configure it automatically in the right option.
After installion start Windows, important leave battery unplug,
then go to the device manager, expand "Batteries"; than disable "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" and "Microsoft AC adapter". It's fondamental to not disinstall them, otherwise windows re-install them at next boot!
Now you have a complete usable PC with ACPI enable (suspend, auto power off,...), windows does not comunicate with the battery, and the system doesn't freeze. The PC is also able to charge the battery and use it, the only unusable function is the battery status.
The battery infact is charged by hardware not by software. If you are in battery mode you can't now how charge remain.

I have an Acer Aspire 3005 WLMi, with the same bug and now i use it without problem.
Sorry for my bad english,

Stefano Bassi.

I have a hp pavilion dv6500 notebook pc which is having problems holding a charge. I recently replaced the power adapter with a 65 Watt power adapter and same problem. Not sure the wattage of the original...


start with removing the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery from device manager. Right click my computer > manage > device manager. right click unistall the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery.
If that doesn't work look for a BIOS update on the HP website. Known issue with this series.

Acer Aspire 3000 keyboard failing


The problem is the battery as mentioned before. Disabling "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Battery Method" should solve the problem of the keybord and the mouse, this is, because the driver dosen't work properly with a bad battery. I think it fires a lot of hard interruptions that are blocking the keybord and the mouse interruption to the system (each time a key is pressed an interruption is send to the processor... if the battery driver sends a lot of interruptions, the key interruptions don't have time to be processed in time - that explains the fact that the system responds to a key press is that bad)
