Missing power icon from Dell laptop taskbar

  Sapins 15:17 08 Apr 2008

I have a Dell Inspiron 9400 running XP Home+SP2 which, until today, displayed the Icon showing whether it was on mains or battery. when I booted it this morning the Icon is no longer there. I have not made any changes to the settings.

How do I re-instate the Icon on the taskbar please?

Go to `Start/Control Panel/Power Options/Advanced` and make sure the `Always show icon on the taskbar` box is checked.

I checked this first, the box is ticked! I have now unticked the box , clicked apply and re-ticked the box and clicked apply again, the Icon is now back in the taskbar!!!

Funny going's on or what?
