    "go to device manager disable both 'microsoft ac adapter' and 'microsoft acpi-compliant control method battery'
    then re-enable them again."

    Dis-abling & re-enabling the adapters worked for me but I had to refresh the battery device list (scan for hardware changes) first as only one adapter was showing.

    The second device. 'microsoft acpi-compliant control method battery' was missing however once it updated I did as you suggested and works great cheers!

    that may sound like an obvious answer but i have had the same problem and i did something so easy which fixed it. i just restarted the Windows Explorer process in task manager. that's all
    This worked for me when the others didn't. Easy and quick. Thank you!

    Thank you very much for your help. However, this only worked for me until I restarted my laptop... any suggestions on how to permanently solve the issue?

    It's simple


    Just open task manager, find "Windows Explorer" -> right click and end task. Then run new task and type explorer.exe to open it again. Amazingly your icons appear again )). Just tell me if this help you.
