Hi,

 

Yes I have downloaded power management software given by lenovo, but it doesn't have alarm function, I have also cheked in Control Panel/ Sounds...the sound is active for low battery and critical battery....still it doesn't sound alarm. Is there any third party software which will be helpful? ...

 

Thanks

Hai, I thing u have mis-understanding on the function on ControlPanel>sound. = this function to setting you would like to hear, and this doest not set the alarm warning for your battery. As you are mention you already download/installed the power management software, you should set the low battery alarm on the power management software and not in ControlPanel>Sound. Examples, after you install driver the chipset for power management for your system, you also need install Energy Cut software provided by Lenovo, beside this Power management software provided, you are able to set on onside this software example 20% low battery alarm.
