Mine is Synaptics.  Thanks for the link.

Anyone know what to do about my laptop and battery?

The battery was basically 'drained out' yesterday and it has been
charging for nearly 16+ hours.  After I go to my last class, I'll come
along and see how long I can use it before it kills itself again.

It used to seem to go 3-4 hours, but now it barely makes seemingly 30-45

I'd have to use the System Restore CD to bring it back to Windows ME
before they'd even TALK to me at Compaq tech support however. :(
