Thank you, I tried the ACPI advice, no luck. I noticed I have two instances on my list though - maybe an issue? (I think my notebook somehow accepts two batteries in theory though).
I’m no the legacy fw driver for Win7 already, others didn’t work, and I also tried a pmcmia adapter with a ricoh or nec though, far worse performance.
Really stumped. I guess 2012 will need to see a new system coming, but I prefer a mobile setup and the list on notebooks with FW and esp. a TI chip plus the features I would like it to have… pretty short for now.
I might give N4 a go when I get back, but so far N5.5 has been fine for me with no real reason to go back yet.
