Where to download driver for ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery?
Posted 11 March 2009 - 12:01 PM
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?

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
why won't my laptop work?

I went to device manager, clicked on Batteries to expand it, selected Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery, clicked on Uninstall.
How did you remove it?
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
Using the recovery disks is probably the way to go. There is a download for it here:

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.
