The low battery indicator popup has disappeared from my Samsung LT. Now it just dies if I don't realise the battery is low. I have checked in Power Settings in Control Panel & the indicator is definitely 'on' but not happening. Help!

When I Google Samsumg LT I see a 24" TV. I assume it's not one of those.

Are we talking about an LED indicator or something in software like a notification icon, next to the date and time?

It's a popup. Just says 'low battery'.

Without knowing the exact model, I've no idea what software could be running to indicate power levels. All laptops I've ever used have a power icon which can be displayed all the time, if required. From that you can see the battery level. The icon is display at the end of the task bar, Then in the control panel, you normally have settings and action for power, which can be adjusted. Some PCs may have their own software for controlling this, which would not appear on the control panel. Sometimes this overrides Windows.

Thanks Kev. All the settings seem to be correct. I have icon in tray but don't notice it when working. The pop up was really useful but think I'm going to have to manage without it
