Re: Locating the battery gauge

If you right click on your desktop open properties and go into you power setting and once there you should see a place in the lower hand of that window to have a antimated battery icon show up on your task bar, that should show the battery now and if your roll your pointer over the battery in the lower right hand side of your taskbar it will say how much power is left try that if it don't work let me know and I'll help some more, OK Thanks

My Batter is never fully charged , I am always on mains. HELP PLEASE

Unfortunatly, laptop manufacturers dont usually tell you that running your laptop on mains, after the battery has fully charged, damages the battery. This is especially true of LI-ON batteries.
You are supposed to charge the battery, then either disconnect and use on battery, or remove the battery and stay on mains.
This is not of much help to you if your battery now no longer lasts more than a few minutes.
You will need a replacement battery if you wish to use it on battery again.
