    How do I reset the ACPI?

  • dell_pissed Mar 09, 2008

    Did that, no change

  • dell_pissed Mar 09, 2008

    Additioanlly,

    This replacement battery is recommended for the Inspiron 1100 (6600mAH) and the original Dell Battery was (Type 6T473 6450mAH)

  • dell_pissed Mar 09, 2008

    Battery I installed, (New Replacement) never charged, so when I disconnect the power cord it immediately turns off.....

    When I replaced the old Dell Battery with this replacement it never "recognised" the new install and the Power Meter indicator is "greyed out"

  • dell_pissed Mar 09, 2008

    Yes, the original battery was available in the market, however, this was originally one of the discrepant batteries when they first came out in 2003......

    This is why I chose to upgrade to longer life battery that is considered an appropriate replacement....

    Still, I am wondering if this requires a new driver as the system still doesnot recognize this battery...

  • dell_pissed Mar 09, 2008

    Dell no longer supplies this battery, and this recommendation is the replacement.

    Is there a newer "driver" that is available for the ACPI Compliant Battery?

Laptop will not charge battery. Issue with internal power converter, etc.


The motherboard has charging circuits built in to regulate the charge to the main battery, in rare causes it fails leaving a choice to attempt a repair or replace the motherboard. I suspect this is what has happened to your system.

I have an Dell Inspiron 1525 and its battery isn't getting charged.The battery gets charged every now and then but mostly,the laptop runs on AC power without getting charged.It gives me the message...


if it is the original stuff used...and nothing is changed..then try to install the battery driver so that it will be able to recognize the charger ..o r...you will have to get a new battery cause this one might be dead!..(you may take in counting a bad contact ...but if the battery works by itself when it does charge...it means that its not a contact problem ..but just a new battery needed...)

Understanding battery charging issues
If the <a href="http://www.laptopbatteryinc.com.au/dell-xps-m1530.html">dell xps m1530 battery</a> is not charging or the notebook does not indicate that the battery is charging, the most likely scenario is that the battery itself is operating correctly, but its power management software may have become corrupt. In order to correct the problem, you will need to uninstall and reinstall the power management software by using the Device Manager. This document will explain how to uninstall and reinstall the ACPI Battery listings in Windows Vista, as well as how to obtain and install updated BIOS files, if needed to correct other battery issues.
Uninstalling and reinstalling power management software in Windows Vista
In order to correct problems with the battery's power management software, follow the steps below.
1. Click Start and type device in the search field, then select Device Manager .
2. Expand the Batteries category.
3. Under the Batteries category, right-click the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select Uninstall .
WARNING: Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver.
4. On the Device Manager taskbar, click Scan for hardware changes .
Alternately, select Action > Scan for hardware changes .
Windows will scan your computer for hardware that doesn't have drivers installed, and will install the drivers needed to manage your battery's power. The notebook should now indicate that the <a href="http://www.laptopbatteryinc.com.au">laptop battery</a> is charging.

Dell Inspiron 1100 Bios and ACPI


Please contact your system vendor for an updated bios. If you are unable to obtain an updated bios or the latest bios supplied by your vendor is not ACPI compliant, you can turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable ACPI and allow you to continue your installation."

RESOLUTION
Manually install the Standard PC hardware abstraction layer (HAL):
1. Reboot the computer to restart Setup.
2. When Setup starts again, press F7 when you see the "Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver" screen.
Windows automatically disables the installation of the ACPI HAL and installs the Standard PC HAL. You should also contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a BIOS that is fully ACPI compliant

Laptop Mousepad and Keyboard stuttering, slow


This may be a battery power monitor issue. Try disabling the "Mircosoft ACPI- Compliant Control Method Battery" device. This is located in Control Panel-->System-->Hardware Tab-->Device Manager-->Batteries. Had similar problem with 2 Acer Aspire series laptops (diff models). 2 and 3 year old. Original batteries (both still hold charges for 1.5 hrs of normal usage). Running WinXP, one with SP2 and other had SP3. Both came in the last month with slow jerky TPAD function and nearly non responsive keyboard access. Checked the usual; virus, spyware, hijacking, driver conflict etc. Cloned drive and factory installed..still same problem with kb & mouse. However an external USB keyboard and mouse functioned normally (no lag). Noticed with Battery removed kb & mouse was normal. Finally found disabling ACPI control battery device resolved this issue while allowing laptop to run on either battery or AC.
