Disable device windows XP

  eshroom 19:25 05 Feb 2008

Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 5300. A while back the keyboard and mouse stopped working. Having googled it I realised the problem lay with the battery.

The solution was simple, disable the battery, I followed the instructions and hey presto it all worked again. Proble is I have now re installed windows and cannot remember how to do this.

It was in some menu with all the drivers perhaps? I checked device manager and couldn't find what I was looking for. Any ideas?

As a side note, it was a long list of items, one of which was battery related, rather than just selecting the battery driver from within device manager.

Thanks again.
