IdeaPad U330 - info battery not reported in linux


I'm on Debian with a kernel I compiled (2.6.28). ACPI relate not battery information (I have the loaded battery kernel module, but/proc/acpi/battery is not present).

Does anyone know what could be the source of this problem?

Thank you


ACPI tells you the battery in a place where the gnome-applets don't seem to currently. Information ACPI battery lie in/sys/class/power_supply/BAT0 (there is a similar directory for the adapter). I'm not sure what are the State of the latest gnome-applets, but those of debian stable look here.

I wrote my own applet gnome in ruby for anyone interested - just send me a PM.

  • U330 Ethernet does not, wireless works fine

    I have an Ideapad U330, which will not get online with the help of ethernet in windows. Before ask you, no, this isn't my router. When I use a Ubuntu bootable disk, ethernet works fine and I can surf the web without problem. I reformatted and installed windows 7 x 86 (it had windows XP before and the ethernet didn't work there either), installed all the drivers and updated the BIOS, ethernet still does not then that works fine wireless. I thought it was a hardware problem, until the ethernet worked without problem under Ubuntu.

  • Real battery not attached! ?

    I have laptop Lenovo Z570 after my installation of drivers, I tried to install the software Center solution for the control of hardware device and system of Lenovo. I have solved all the problems, but there is always a message in the center of solution showing this real battery not attached. I checked the battery series and the number of piece and found it's prescribed parts that came with your laptop and user written in textbooks. What really is the problem, it is the true message please see the snapshot of the message.

    Note of the moderator; photo showing s/n, edited for the protection of its own

    If you're referring to this "Solution Center":

    See under "supported systems": download page

    Your Z570 is not supported for this software. Most of the functions will work on your system, but the battery report no not because you do not have the "Power Manager" in your Z570. I think that you have the software of "energy management".

    I have the Toolbox Lenovo's ThinkVantage (LTT) installed in my Y470 (Win 7). This software is also 'not supported' for my Y470. Really, it was created for the ThinkPads, but everything works, EXCEPT the "unloaded" because I do not have the installed "Power Manager". The error, "genuine battery not attached" isn't the truth and false. You should put your faith in the software of management of energy says.

    There is no "difficulty" to do this, because this software was not created for your 'Z' Ideapad series.

    I hope that this clears the problem for you. Be happy, if all the other "Solution Center" programs in your Z570.

    See you soon

    My pc is a Lenovo IdeaPad u330 that running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit.  I have 3 PC over a wireless home network.  Recently, I have been instructed by the Lenovo Support telephone call center to enter "cmd" in the Task Manager, did so and was taken to the black C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe screen.  I had to then enter "cmk", did and received message next-'cmk' is not recognized as internal or external command, an executable program or batch file.  Support staff advised that this indicated my pc has been seriously infected and needed immediate attention.  My pc works well and I have McAfee installed, having received no warning and a complete analysis of all recommended system was OK.  Should I worry or the person was just trying to sell a service?  Thank you.

  • Tecra 8000: battery not charging

    I have a laptop Toshiba Tecra 8000 works excellently on the radio but cannot get a battery charge! I have 2 new batteries, but when I go to power options it says battery not detected. However if you pass the sector off the power the computer will run on battery for a few minutes.

    Hello Roy

    As much as I know there is no any kind of parameters for the battery. Everything works automatically and power of electronic power control controls this. Software gets some info from the hardware store.

    If the battery is not recognized by the system, I'm afraid, there is not much to do and the unit must be checked by the service of the laptop.

  • Generation of reports on Linux


    LabVIEW 8.6 on Fedora 10.

    I'd be right in assuming that .doc and .xls format of the reports can not be generated under Linux (I can't find anything in the few documents that I read, but it would be logical to assume that)?

    LabVIEW support .odt formats and .ods does for the generation of reports (openoffice)?

    OpenOffice can read and write files .doc and .xls (imperfectly) most, however.

    Just to clarify, the GTA use the API ActiveX Office to generate the report, then it will not work on Linux in all cases (unless something like Mono can allow that sort of thing, but I guess it does not).

    I have a vague recollection that the HTML screws do not exist in reality (e.g. HTML appears in the list of options, but there is no screw actually generate the HTML pages). That said, I can be remembering incorrectly. The code is open source, it should be easy enough to look inside and see. If the screws of HTML code and are only ASCII, then probably you can copy the screw on the Linux machine and use them, although I don't know if that is allowed by the license.

    If your needs are minimal and you know the HTML language, you can probably write the code yourself, although it will take probably a few work.

  • Why not update for Linux mechanism works?

    Firefox informed me this morning that an update was available. In the small window in which this information came, there was a button marked "Update Now". I pressed the button and showed a gray horizontal bar with a short dark color bar moving from left to right. The text in the window says that Firefox has been updated. Unfortunately, that "update" can go on forever with nothing to show for it. So finally, I have to close the window myself (using the window manager).

    So my question is: why the update mechanism does not work for Linux?

    You have write rights to the Firefox installation folder?

    You are using a Firefox installation from the repositories of your Linux distribution or you installed Firefox yourself?

    If you used the deposits then you need to update via your software management.

    Otherwise, you may need to be updated as long as user root.

  • Equium A300D - 16 c - battery not detected after replacement

    I have an Equium A300D - 16 c. The original battery was shot while I bought a stack of real PA3727-1brs 12. I have put in the laptop, it seems to load, but in the corner, he always says no battery not detected even if its load on. When I leave the charger it says remaining unknown.

    I tried the usual stuff to go into Device Manager and uninstall control compliant apci and still he has not solved it self. I've also updated my bios to the newest one. I just wanted to know what could I do so I can see how much battery is left, and if the laptop can recognize I..

  • Qosmio G10-133 - battery not detected after upgrading to Windows 7

    Hello, I hope someone can help my frustrations here.

    In recent weeks, I successfully upgraded my laptop to Windows 7, an increase of memory to 2 GB, bought new power cord for laptop, new battery and resolved all the issues that Windows 7 has cast on me. The laptop and runs like one dream other than a question that seems to have had worse.

    The laptop no longer recognizes the new battery. (battery with a cross through it and a photo of current) For about a week after installing the battery, this has worked fine but now does not detect everything. I don't have any errors in Device Manager and windows recognized the ACPI etc battery inputs and has no problem. I also loaded the package of Toshiba value added that Windows 7 has found for me but still nothing. Battery not charge even though sometimes the battery works for about 30 seconds to start up if the battery is back removed and implemented, then stops again (once Windows loaded) I tried many things like the disabling of the driver, reinstall battery etc, but nothing. I tried the iniitally of battery with Windows XP and worked well.

    I have also searched the web and saw that many other laptops with Windows 7 have had this problem, including Toshibas. Some say update the BIOS, but Toshiba have not released an upgrade from the original in 2004 (which is for WIn XP Media Center), and there is no settings in my BIOS for ACPI etc.

    In addition, I can not calibrate the battery because I can't do anything with it. I don't think it's a question though.

    If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it or all the links to the drivers etc.

    If this is sorted my laptop should last for 5 years!

    Thanks for reading this.



    First of all, I doubt that many other laptops equipped with Windows 7 have this problem. I've never heard of this and normally charge the battery will not be controlled of the OS. It happens automatically and your battery will be charged if the AC/DC is plugged. If the OS doesn't affect it!

    To be honest, I also don t know why your battery isn't detected, but what happens if you turn off the laptop and let the AC/DC adapter plugged in for 24 hours? After that, it should be possible to work on the minute of the battery for 1 hour or more.

    If this isn't the case, it seems to be a hardware problem, maybe the battery doesn t work correctly and should be replaced. You should contact the retailer where you bought

  • Toshiba A300 PSAGCE battery not detected

    Hello everyone.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A300 (PSAGCE) which worked well since I. Recently, he showed "battery not charging". I went to see what I could do and someone advised that I should update the BIOS. So, I went to the website of Toshiba and downloaded the update for my BIOS. I have install without problem. He now has the version 2.20. The problem of "battery not charging" had disappeared.

    I had a new problem: battery not detected!

    The battery worked well and he gave me 2 hours of normal use. Now, it is not "detected". I did everything I could think of. Do you have the BIOS reset (pressing on the WE / OFF button / stop for 30 seconds), I left it with the battery for a few days, etc...

    When I connect the battery, it shows an orange light for 5 seconds and he died later. I don't know what more I can do. I contacted Toshiba in my country without success. They have not yet responded to my email.

    Any ideas? I tried with another charger than computer shows the same.

    I have install as a program of "" and it shows that I have 1.40 hours of battery, but as soon as I remove the cable ca, the computer shuts down without power.

    I guess I won't be needing help... I flashed my BIOS with a lower version that I had (2.20 > 1.80) and now it does not start even upward.

    I'm kidding not things for good.

    Any changes to save it?

  • Battery not charging - Thinkpad E531

    Dear Lenovo,

    I have been using Windows 7, but I recently changed to Windows 8.1.

    In Win7, I was able to install and use the Lenovo power management software, and I changed the threshold of 40 to 50% battery.

    After I installed Win8.1, I realized there is not any software for Windows 8.1 E531 power management, so I can't charge my battery above 50%.

    It seems that power management software makes somekind of related material change or do not remember my previous settings which I did in Win7.

    How can I change the thresholds without reinstalling windows 7 and power management software?

    Could you give me a link to a management software can be used for Windows 8.1 E531 Thinkpad power (which is 100% working)?

    Another solution?

    Thank you!

    Hi Tray86,

    Welcome to Lenovo Community!

    According to the request, we understand that you are facing problem with the battery not charging over 50% on your ThinkPad E531.

    You must change the setting of control dependence of Lenovo to always fully charged, please visit the link below and follow the steps from that.

    I hope this helps.
