Elitebook 840 G5 Health Care edition
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My fabulous HP elitebook 840 G5 HC is not showing battery remaining time on windows power icon. I've done lots of research and already done the registry checkup for the parameter on "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\EnergyEstimationEnabled" set on 1 without success. I've tried checking and upgrading BIOS because of information on other forums with no avail. This BIOS has no "show estimated time remaining" option. 

 

All my past elitebooks did show the battery remaining time indicator without problems.

 

Any information, please advise.

Did they run Windows 10  or Windows 7 ?

Windows 10. Last year I had an elitebook G2 with outstanding battery life.
