That works perfect for me for now, cheers mate. Thank you for the prompt response and sharing experience with Compaq laptop. I actually made a mistake in quoting the series number of the laptop in case anybody else got the same laptop and need a fix to the buggy acpi. It is actually V2314AP and not V2413AP.
