We have installed Windows 7 on some of our older Toshiba Satellite S200-300 model laptops to keep them inline with the existing network infrastructure.

I am aware it is a known problem but am after some workarounds to rectify it. Maybe a driver or registry hack?
The Battery shows up with an X over it when on battery or charging and states Consider replacing your battery. The batteries report fine when used in a compatible fitting device that fully supports Windows 7 however.

Oddly enough the older A100 & A120's have no issues about complaints over batteries.

I'm probably asking a bit of a simple answer for a more complicated question really, but any help would be appreciated.
