    Find ISBMgr on start up

    I was facing same issue on my sony laptop but my laptop version is different. One of my friend is suggested this process and now i will be able to charge my laptop. Click start and go to the run command , click on msconfig on that and press enter key. Then you fill find the start up tab and click on that, find ISBMgr is listed or not, and how many times. Just click check on that and restart the system.

    Registry may be corrupt

    isbmgr.exe is a process which belongs to Sony's ISB Utility and support the battery of the sony laptop. Due to installing or reinstalling the program or operating system , It may be corrupt. So i think your isbmgr.exe is corrupted. You need to fix isbmgr.exe through registry fix error software. You can download any free registry fix error software and fix this issue.

    You can help from this from utility disc that come from your sony Vaio VGN-C260E. There are program named ISB Utility on the disc, Just install that utility and reboot your system it may fix your issue. You can also download that utility from sony official website. If again found same issue check another battery charger with your laptop.

    You need to remove ISBMgr.exe from start up and reboot the laptop. This problem is due to ISBMgr.exe utility is not compatible with Windows 7 and create a problem. You can also download utility tool for windows 7 and install on the laptop. If you found any issue check your Laptop battery charger.

    Notebook Hardware Control helps battery in sony laptop

    Sony has hard in the laptop motherboard the detection of sony battery. ISBMgr.exe is an integrated Sony Battery Manager. If your Sony battery dies than it will shown on start up with windows going to sleep mode. I suggest you to download and install a program called "Notebook Hardware Control" to your laptop and check. I think this program help you much more.

    Re: Battery driver issue after upgrading from Vista to 7 in Sony Vaio VGN-C260E

    Hello everyone,
    i agree with calvin and lillebror.
    it seems that ISBMgr.exe has been a problem for so many people who have vaio sony Laptop.
    Let me make it clear that this exe. file has nothing to do with operating system (Windows XP or Vista); it is a file created originally made by sony to disable the laptop when any "not capable Battery" (not made by Sony corporation) is replaced with original sony battery. In other word, Sony wants you to buy thier battery for $400 while you can buy it from ebay for $50!! now if you want to respect thier stupid marketing and purchase the battery from them for $400, go ahead, but for those who want to get rid of the trouble causes by this file and keep the cheap battery working, here is the solution:

    Note: the ONLY reason of this file to be in your laptop is to disable laptop when you use different brand of battery rather than sony, so dont be scare to delete this file from your computer! here is how:
    *file location: C/program files/Sony/ISB Utility/ISBMgr.exe (in some laptop, it appears as "ISBMgr," weithout exe. extention), go ahead right click and try to delete this file: "ISBMgr.exe"
    first of all you need to be in addministrator account to give the permission to do so. BUT, in most cases that doesn't work either becasue the file is protected or hidden. here is how to get that sucker out of the laptop:

    1) click on Start-click on Run (vista users if you cannot find the run, after you click on start, in the "start search" bar type run and it will be listed on top then click on it)

    2) Type in "cmd" press enter.

    3) in the command window type in "msconfig" press enter.

    4) click on the "Startup" tab on top of the window

    **5) UNCHECK the "ISB Utility" from the list** and click on Apply and then OK

    6) close all the windows and go back to the file location which is:
    C/Program Files/Sony/ISB Utility

    7) right click on the file "ISBMgr.exe" and DELETE it (with confidence) this time because you have disabled its stability from Command window, it will be deleted.

    8) just to be in the safe side and not face any wierd reaction from the laptop, you can go back to command window and check the "ISBMgr.exe" file. this will not reactivate it, but by doing so the laptop will not realize any missing file! (tricky ha!).
    Run--cmd--msconfig--Startup Tab--check ISBMgr.exe from the list.

    share this with your friends and let the sony corporation knows that we are not gonna be its victims.
    Good Luck
    Sam

    I also faced the same issue with my sony laptop which was upgraded to Windows 7. I didnt delete the ISBMgr file , instead I reinstalled the operating system again which solved the battery detection problem. I will try and delete the ISBMgr file and see if non-sony battery works on this laptop or not.

    This happens when the user permission is changed. Usually a administrator of the system has the proper rights to delete the file or install a software. This permissions are modified by the virus. You will need to scan your system for the same. Boot in safe mode by pressing F8 on the startup time and then run a virus scan.

    I think that your device is not compatible with the Windows 7. I have checked on the Sony Official site and come to know that they don't produce the software for the Windows 7 for this mode. I think this is the reason that is why you are missing all the functionality of your device. Still you can contact the customer care of Sony and ask regarding the driver for your device.
