Question about PC Laptops
The Battery display icon in my laptop's area notifications always shows 50% and don't alarm about baterry's status. My C500 run WinXP pro service pack 2 (ghost edition). Plz give me 1 advice!
Power down your laptop. Remove the battery and power for about 2 min. Plug in the power only. Boot up your XP. Right click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager. Click on View>Show hidden devices.
If it lists a battery catagory, click on the + , right click on your battery, and select Uninstall.
If it doesn't show, don't worry. Now plug in your battery, without powering down. That should cause XP to redetect your battery. Reboot and your Battery icon and powersaving settings should all be ok.
