Battery icon is missing

I run a tx 2000 tablet notebook, with AMD Turion X2 64, and Nvidia graphics.


Lately my computer has not been showing the little battery icon in the corner. There is a little paces where it belongs but no matter what I do it won't come back. I have to leave the Battery check open to know how much power I have so my computer doesn't shut down on me.


I restarted, shut down, left it alone, and even ran the icon restoration program . Which only managed to scatter my desktop icons.


Is there another way to fix this?




The icon normally sits between the pen flicks and the internet icon.

Re: Battery icon is missing

At first this didn't work,the icon would be greyed out, but a restore point and a restart fixed it right up, thank you.
