Windows 10: missing battery meter
Acer Aspire 5750 with originally Win7 Home Premium 64 bits - Intel i5 2.30 GHz - 4GB RAM
I went to the Acer site and punched in your model number (just the 5750, no letters) and chose windows 8 as the os (assuming, as before, that this issue is new with Windows 8 and continues into Windows 10). Under bios downloads they do have the exact same update name I found on gateways site! I used the Acer USA website. It should solve your problem!
The thing is that though I am quite good at fiddling with all kinds of software and the usual computer problems, the BIOS is a bit terra incognita for me - 'there be dragons'... ;-) And I am not so sure if I can get out of any problems I might run into, be it by doing something wrong... But I will certainly have another look at it tomorrow... (5 a.m. here at the moment - got to sleep a bit...)
Fair enough! On my laptop, it's simply an .exe file. You run it and it install and reboots. You don't have to go mess around in the bios setup... It literally installs like a program. Sweet dreams!
Not sure if Home Premium has gpedit. But if it does - I have Pro and this solved my issues.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for this solution! Finally I have my battery icon back
I'm experiencing now this problem (after having upgraded to windows 10 directly from windows 7), and I see that redoing the scan makes the battery indicator reapper. However, my laptop is an Acer Aspire 4830TG, I looked in the website for my model but I could not find any updates concerning ACPI compliant battery, can someone confirm that it does not exist for my model and/or suggest another solution for my issue? thanks
you are a saint, coreyw2000!! This worked for me and your instructions saved me a lot of time. My laptop is also Gateway NV57H, btw
Missing Battery icon.
Thanks a million! That worked like a charm.
As stated in title - no battery icon when not plugged in - and no battery/power icon when plugged in - also no locations icon. I do not care much about the locations one, but the battery one is pretty much vital.

I've read the Windows 10 tutorial on battery saver, but it doesn't seem to address what I need to know. Neither do the various threads on same. I need to know if this particular "battery saver" will preserve my battery if I leave it plugged into the...
