    system upgraded, now the battery won't charge (XP)

    Hi

    My husband recently upgraded my laptop to Windows XP Professional from Windows 2000. Now my battery won't charge at all and the function keys for sound and display brightness don't work. Has anyone come across this before and is there anything I can do?

    You need to get the new software from the OEM of the lap top.
    What make and model do you ?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    What model number?

    We use the Sony's and they (Sony) have updated XP drivers and software for MOST of their lap tops.

    Weird, I thought I already replied to this, but it hasn't shown up on the board.

    Anyway, I checked your link out but it only applies to American versions, so my model wasn't on the list. I have a PCG-FX109K. Can you tell me what I need to be looking for? I have original OEM disks for a different VAIO that came with XP installed, so could probably copy whatever drivers I need from it. However, there are 4 CDs with files on them and I don't know what I am looking for.
