Taskbar Power Setup/Confusion

  Da-B-Man 14:44 30 Dec 2004


windows update has downloaded a patch for me to install, sp2 i think, however when
i click the taskbar (windows update icon) it starts installing and then says

"The machine needs to be on AC power before installing"

My problem is the machine IS on AC power and there is a little AC power icon in the taskbar
telling me this...even though it shouldnt be there (desktop pIII 866MHz PC, WinXP Pro). I have gone into control panel
and looked at the power options and all seems to be fine.

i recently added a tft monitor to this computer...would this be the problem? and noticed i couldnt
get rid of the AC Power icon in the taskbar even when i changed the settings in control panel.

Any help would be of great assistance
