Acer Aspire 4745 is not getting configured with Ubuntu 10.04

Acer Aspire 4745        AcerDear friends,

I did a grave mistake, by purchasing Acer Aspire 4745 with out primary investigation. I am Linux user especially with Ubuntu. I have been using this for the past 4 years. I installed it many laptops like Compaq, Dell, Acer, and etc. I was having Acer Aspire 5920Ubuntu was configured excellently and there was no problem at anytime. In fact, it was my Linux laboratory. But I am suffering a lot with the present model. The problems are;

  • the battery is not properly configured, the applet at top-panel is missing, even if I add it from 'add to panel' option it appears but not responding to the battery changes.
  •  the gnome-sound-recorder is not working, I could not record any thing with the help of default sound recorder. But I could record sound with the help of microphone in Windows 7 (which came factory loaded) with my laptop.

other than above two all remaining things are good. But you know these two are very much important, and very most is the batter, I don't know when my laptop shutdown, this is the highest insult to me.

You know it is not Acer mistake, it is purely my mistake, I must have done little research before purchasing it.
