    Default Battery not working;

    This is a new laptop, an MSI-VR602. Im booting from the BT3-usb version.
    If I go to Power Control I get this:
    Your computer seems to have a partial ACPI installation. ACPI was probably enabled, but some of the sub-options were not - you need to enable at least 'AC Adaptor' and 'Control Method Battery' and then rebuild your kernel.

    I did follow http://masbuchin.com/upgrade-bt3-kernel.htm
    But I mustve gone wrong somewhere, because when I boot into the "new" kernel, Controlcenter says its still 2.6.21.5

    Also; In my drivers/acpi I have container.ko

    FAIL! You started a thread about having a battery problem so instead of following the advice that was posted you decided to rebuild the kernel.

    Good luck

    No, I started before that reply was there.
    I didnt see the reply until after I finished.

    Also; As im new to all of this the most relevant thing from that link I saw, was to check the drivers/acpi. Thus.

    Yeah still my point is valid. Why would you move on to something else when problem "a" is not fixed?

    Because of:
    ACPI was probably enabled, but some of the sub-options were not - you need to enable at least 'AC Adaptor' and 'Control Method Battery' and then rebuild your kernel.
    So I went through enabled those, and rebuilt.
    Also; In a hurry because I wanted to get this done before I left tomorrow night for the week. </3.
