Windows 7: Battery Problem

Battery Problem

Since I installed Windows 7 RC1 on my PC, I started having a problem related with my Sony Vaio VGN-FE41S battery. When I insert it, my computer displays an error saying that the battery is incompatible and the computer will hibernate because of that.

Any solution?

Hi Reckoner and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

This sounds like a power management driver issue. What does your laptop actually do when the battery is installed (apart from displaying this message)?

Thanks for the welcome message.

Well, after I put the battery, Windows 7 recognize it but that message appears and nothing more. After the message, my PC just goes to hibernate mode.

Did you install Windows 7 with the battery inserted, and was the battery charged when you did so?

OK. Try reinstalling Windows 7 with the battery inserted (and charged).

That would take much time and patience. Is there any other solution?

I'm pleased that you have managed to solve your problem. I note that it was, as I suspected, an issue with the power management drivers.
