Windows xp battery meter not updating
When the AC power is connected, it always says "estimating", whereas when unplugged, it says "Laptop battery is charged". And Windows 7 Ultimate displays battery as 100% and discharges properly from what I gather, if that helps.
I hope it gets solved soon, thanks to those who tried to solve it anyway! I'm about to try the BIOS update that apparently came out Hi, In mi case I have both Windows 7 a Ubuntu on my laptop.
Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager When I have the laptop plugged to the AC power, the battery indicator shows me the real value of percentage of my battery level.
Nonetheless, when I unplug the AC power and use the battery of the laptop, the battery indicator tells me that the "laptop battery is charged" even though it is not fully charged.
I hope this time I arrive in time to be able to solve the problem.
Problem Type: Bug Distro Release: Ubuntu 11.04 Package: gnome-power-manager 2.32.0-2ubuntu1 Proc Version Signpend Inhibited: No Installation Media: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS "Lucid Lynx" - Release amd64 (20100429) Machine Type: Hewlett-Packard HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook PC Proc Environ: LANGUAGE=en LANG=es_ES.
From a report on The Loop: You can still see the image on the top of the screen, and you can see the percentage, but you will no longer be able to see how much time is remaining before your battery dies.
Windows XP running in Virtualbox does show the correct battery level regardless of the charge history. On 30/10/2012 , Marius Kotsbak wrote: Tested on 12.10: Same behaviour.
Thanks again to everyone and hope this hint leads to a solution!
This happend on Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10, Mint 14 and Mint debian edition to me. When I'm charging my battery, if the charge hits 100%, the indicator got stuck on 100% (never decreases again), until I shutdown. If I stop the charge before hit 100% it works perfectly.
Before that version I do not know if that problem existed since at that time I only used Ubuntu on Personal Computers. Not only does it not read the battery information correctly but it ruins your battery so it never fully is able to reach it's full capacity again.
I have gone through several batteries with my HP 6700t.And now it shows a full battery icon and "Laptop battery is charged" despite being at 38% in the Power Statistics.
