Missing Battery Time Display ? Time Remaing on Battery

Hi I have an HP Pavilion dv4 and i noticed that when i move the mouse cursor over the battery icon in the system tray. It only displays percantage of battery, not displays the time remaing of how long my battery life is. So, Is there a setting somwhere or something I can do to make it appear?

Thanks

Some HP laptops do not have the option to show the "time left" they only show percentage. I don't know if your falls into this category. If it does you could always try this free proggy

Hi Yutada- I've got a HP Pavilion dm3 and I can confirm that it's not possible under normal system settings to view battery by time remaining :/ good luck trying out 3rd party programs though! Let us know if you find anything that works

Cheers,

I have an HP Pavilion DV6 and it only shows percentage. I installed BattteryCare and it seems to do the trick.
