Hello I am fairly new to Linux and I am having 2 issues that I think may be related. First I have no Acpi settings no battery indicator or power save options. Second I get a no touch pad error after the boot. Both problems lead me to believe that my Laptop thinks its a desktop. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
