Battery Meter Dissappeared

The battery meter that was directly to the left of the toolbar on the bottom right has all of the sudden dissapeared...any ideas how I can get it to show up again? It was the meter that showed the percentage of battery power remaining (i.e. 96%)


Thanks in advance...

Re: Battery Meter Dissappeared



Check to make sure that you still have ThinkVantage Power Manager still installed.  Look in either  Start --> Programs --> ThinkVantage,   or   go to Control Panel -->  Add/Remove Programs and see if it's still there. 


If for some reason it got unintentionally uninstalled, then just reinstall it. 


If it's still installed, then launch it by going to  Start --> Programs --> ThinkVantage --> Power Manager


by hitting the Fn+F3 keys and selecting  Manage Settings


On the Power Manager window,  click on Options  and verify that the  option that says "Show Power Manager Gauge in task bar" is selected.  


If it was already checked and the Power Manager gauge still doesn't show up, try un-checking then re-checking that box.  


If all else fails, try uninstalling then reinstalling Power Manager.
