Acer aspire 3000 battery problem

Hi

i was just wondering when you disable the Microsoft ACPI-Cobmpliant control method battery. it doesnt tell you when the battery is getting low. Is there any other way of sorting out the original problem without disabling the bit in the device manager. or is there any other way to monitering the battery.

Thanks

Are you talking about the CMOS battery? These last for years.

    Thanks for the rating. I guess that is what you were referring to.
    The CMOS battery is like a big remote control alarm battery. That is what is in desktops. In Laptops it is a smaller battery like an over size watch battery. Think about a watch battery. It last a couple of years. The computer battery does the same thing. It keeps your BIOS settings the same. If it does go out, your computer will not stop working. Y ou will get a message that you BIOS settings are set to default. This is when you will know that it is dead. All you have to do is go into the BIOS and set them back. It will do this every time you turn the computer off. The settings do not change when the computer is running. In a laptop the battery is sometimes very hard to get to and is sometimes soldered to the motherboard. On a desktop it is not soldered. It is the thing that almost looks like a quarter. The only purpose is for it to keep the BIOS settings. These are important settings. When you take the battery out it will reset these settings. You do not want to take it out unless you have to.
    I hope that you understand what the battery is for now. Feel free to ask me more questions in the future.

  1. Install the BIOS. (from acer website)
  2. Reboot, log back on, delete the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery"
  3. Shut down.
  4. Removed the battery, unplug the power, waited a few minutes, tapped on the keyboard with voodoo chicken feet.
  5. Plugged it back in without the battery, booted it
  6. Logged on, deleted the ACPI driver again.
  7. Plugged the battery back in (hot, not shut down)
  8. Rescanned for hardware changes.

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.

Just resolved same problem on Acer Aspire 5000 by removing the battery, then goto device manager and disable "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" you can then put your existing battery back into the latop with any problems with the keyboard and touchpad.

I SOLVE THIS ISSUE 100% WORKING
THE MAIN PROBLEM IS ON THE CONTACT BETWEEN THE BATTERY WIRES AND LAPTOP
IF YOU MOVE THE BATTERY IT WILL WORK SO SURE THE PROBLEM WITH THE LINK BETWEEN THE BATTERY AND THE LAPTOP
SOLUTION : TO MOVE THE IRON OUT OF THE LAPTOP TO THE RIGHT TILT THEM TO RIGHT SIDE A LITTLE BECAUSE THE BATTERY WIRES IS TO THE RIGHT SIDE (WATCH THEM) NOT IN THE MIDDLE AND AFTER THAT PUT A STICK ON THE BATTERY TIGHTED IN ITS PLACE SO IT WILL NOT MOVE ITS NOT FREEZING NOW THANKS

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)
