go to control panel, double click power options, click advanced tab, tick the "always show icon on the taskbar box".

tryed that one ticked ..still no show...from what i`ve read it might be something to do with start up and various progs trying to load at same time messing up icons...ahhh well not thats it that important...if i`m running on mains will just have to set power alarm to beep a little earlier if running on batts...thanks for trying anyway.

From another Forum.

Problem solved.

I tried uninstalling all the battery and power supply drivers and rebooting the laptop (I should have thought of this before). This restored the missing tabs to the power options applet. A bit of further logging out and in and playing with the icon settings eventually produced the battery icon in the tray.
