Problem with recognition of the battery on a Sony Vaio notebook.

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)


I have this issue with my notebook battery. I get an error message from a Sony Vaio utility (see screenshot in the attachment). The message box can't be clicked away and it wants to put the computer to sleep. I can only avoid this by killing the task ISBMgr.exe using the Task Manager.

Here is the English version of the text:

The installed battery may not be properly connected to the computer or may not be compatible with the computer.

Click "OK" to enter Hibernate mode, and remove and reinsert the battery.

See the VAIO(R) User Guide for more information about using the battery.

The utility that causes the error message can probably be deactivated from running at the start, though I haven't tried this, but I'd rather not to because I'm booting Win XP from a physical partition.

I'm quite sure this is not a VBox problem at all. The virtual pc that is seen by your XP guest is not the Sony, so it's quite likely Sony utilities simply don't work as they expect to see the real machine.

So don't use them inside the VM.

Seem I have found the solution to this problem. Start the (virtual) machine created from Vaio image in Safe Mode, go to Computer Properties and open "Manage". Go to Device Manager and on the "Batteries" Branch disable all Adapters (despite the warning).

In my case (The machine was created by Paragon Software P2V tool from Sony Vaio VPCX ultralight netbook) this stopped that nagging messages.

Cheers Mirek
