Sorry, I'm a bit confused. Not sure if Machine # 1 or Machine # 2 is having the icon issue. Whichever machine isn't showing the icon ... try rebuilding the icon cache.

Did you check whether it is not hidden in the Customize box.

i try to disable and re-enable it. try uninstall as well with no outcome. try recreate windows profile the battery icon come back but when i restart the icon is not there. additional info, the lan connection went missing as well on the system try. when i go into this turn system icon on and off every icon is gray out except for clock. instead of On it became OFF. i try the option under this link doesn't solve as well.
