To resolve a battery charging issue in my Acer Aspire 3000 (Windows XP home), I followed advice given in a different website (FixYa):device manager, expand "Batteries" and uninstal "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery".
I need to re-install this driver now, but I only have the recovery disks. I can't find it in the Acer support site. Any suggestion for where to look?

How did you remove it?
This is a Windows component, not Acer. Using the recovery disks is probably the way to go. You will lose all of your stored data
There is a download fot it here:

Downloading Windows files and components from a third party location is risky business at best

I went to device manager, clicked on Batteries to expand it, selected Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery, clicked on Uninstall.

Using the recovery disks is probably the way to go. There is a download for it here:
http://download.cnet.com/Microsoft-ACPI-Co...13_4-56002.html

I don't get it. Why do I have to reinstall with the recovery disk, if you gave me the driver's download link? I went to the link, clicked on Download Now, but all I get is another web page

This driver is installed during Windows installation, so you may find it on your Windows XP disk.
If that doesnt work, try visiting Windows update website http://update.microsoft.com/ and let it scan your computer for updates. Hopefully, it will find missing drivers.

Then the driver must still be in my C: disk, since I never deleted it (only uninstalled it). Device Manager lets me Scan for Hardware Changes, and then tries to look for it. My problem is that I don't know in which directory to look (it cannot find it by itself).

Hi i have a sony vaio vgn-z590 but it should work the same.

I deleted the ISB Utility Folder on my C: Disk and it worked perfectly the screen that was giving me problem was the ISBMgr.exe

You can try tracking it down by searching for it on the C:Disk but first delete its active process first.
