I've recently reinstalled XP Pro on my laptop, and have the power options set to show the icon for charging or AC power. BUT sometimes it shows and other times its not there.I have been into Control Panel > Power Options > Advanced tab and checked the box saying "Always show icon on Taskbar" but the icon doen't appear. I've re-booted and checked & unchecked the box but still its not there. Any Ideas pleas

Thanks

Are you clicking OK, then Apply, then OK?

Used your suggestion, and hey presto the icon has returned, BUT when I look for the Control Panel (its usaully showing when i press START) is not there. Any ideas please?

Try, right click task bar, properties, Start Menu, customise, advanced tab and make sure control panel is listed as display.
