  4. Use Old or New Battery Flyout Power Indicator in Windows 10

    Battery power indicator

    1. I am running on Windows 10 and the battery state indicator has disappeared from the Task Bar. I have tried to follow the advice from the community but all paths lead me to something blanked out, such as "personalise the Task Bar"

    2. On a list of icons, the battery indicator has the same icon as the Wi-Fi network indicator, the one with the three circle quadrants.

    Usually when it states that it is not charging it is battery related. I would suggest getting a new battery. You can try to reset Windows power options to see if it will charge:

    what you need to do:

    Open the Device Manager by searching for it or right-clicking the Start button and selecting Device Manager.

    Click Batteries on the list to expand it and you should see two items: Microsoft AC Adapter and Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery.

    device-manager-batteries

    Right-click on each item and choose Uninstall device. Yes, you are uninstalling your laptop's battery drivers, but don't worry because they will automatically be reinstalled when you restart your laptop.

    Shut down your laptop.

    Unplug the power cable from your laptop.

    If your laptop has a removable battery, remove it

    If your laptop does not have a removable battery. try skipping this step.

    Put the battery back in if you removed it.

    Plug in your laptop.

    Power on your laptop.

    Click the battery icon in the system tray and you should see that your laptop is plugged in and charging.

    Please let me know if that helped.

  6. Battery Power Indicator in Windows.

    (Windows) Battery Power Indicator is showing an extremely large amount of time left, typically over 24 hours!!

    With the Laptop built-in power indicator showing the expected 3 to 4 hours max and the %'ages left matching the Windows indicator.

    This has happened in the last week.

    How do I check/rectify this issue.

    Thank you in anticipation.
