I bought a compatible battery for a Sony VGN-CR42S laptop but it would not charge. After a little trial and error I found it was down to a Sony application called ISBMGR.exe. This is located in the Sony programs folder. Rename this, restart the computer and hopefully your compatible battery will be charging properly 🙂
