I recently purchased a new battery (found here
) for my ThinkPad R52. However, neither PCLinuxOS (2010 KDE) nor Windows (XP SP3 with Lenovo utilities) will recognize it. That is, both give me "battery not installed" messages. I don't think the battery is from Lenovo (it's not branded, at least), but as far as I can tell the contacts look almost exactly the same and it should, in theory, work perfectly. Any suggestions?
