Default Windows 7 laptop battery

I upgraded my sony vaio from windows xp to windows 7 and it is not detecting my battery. It says "no battery is detected." Any advice on how to fix this problem?

Thank You

Is it running on battery? (no power)

Did you install chipset drivers?

Chipset Drivers are installed, battery does not work at all, it is running solely on adapter.

Then your battery is bad. Get a new one.

Does your device manager detect your battery, or does it give any errors on any devices? Is there a BIOS update for your laptop by chance?
Does your laptop run at all when you unplug it from AC and just leave it on battery power?
