  1. Battery Monitor Problems After Installing 20H2


    I updated my laptop to Windows 10 20H2 and now the battery monitor doesn't recognize that I have a battery attached to my computer. I can pull the power cord and the computer keeps running, so I know the battery is functional, but the battery monitor in the Task Tray still says "No Battery Is Detected".

    The Laptop is an Acer Aspire 7741Z. It is not in it's factory configuration. I have upgraded the ram from 3GB, to 8GB, the 320GB HDD to a 500GB SSD and the CPU from a Pentium P6000 to a Core i5 M 560. All of these upgrades were months ago and have not affected the battery monitor. The monitor worked until the upgrade to 20H2.


    Any ideas of how I might fix this? I guess it really doesn't matter since the system still works with the battery, it would just be nice to see how much was remaining so I would know to get back to a power source.

    :)

    Make sure you remove everything related to the Battery monitor in Settings|Application Management|installed Apps



    • Battery Monitor Installer (left behind after install, another bug due to shoddy programming)
    • Battery Monitor
    • Battery Monitor Service
    After removing all that you should be able to redownload.



    Note that 1.2 does NOT address any of the issues in 1.1
