Windows 7: Battery meter not refreshing/updating properly

Battery meter not refreshing/updating properly

Hi,
I tried to look for a solution online and in this forum and I kinda failed...

Anyway - I don't know if it has anything to do with the problem, but I recently changed the battery from one that wasn't working properly for quite a while.

As for now the battery meter only refreshes if I right-click on it.

What should I do? :\

Thanks,

Amit

I was going to suggest updating, but I can't find any software updates on lg's site for you, hopefully someone else will have a suggestion.

It probably is but aside from going to their site and contacting support I don't see anything there containing a list of driver updates for the system or anything similar which is actually quite odd. I've always considered LG to be a decent company. (own a microwave and a portable air-conditioner made by them.)

Short of using their support/contact feature I don't see anything specific related to that laptop but a summary of it on their site though.

Battery Meter
Have a 1 year old Dell notebook. Just noticed that the battery meter is showing that it's only 49% charged. It shows that it's charging, but from time to time I would check how much and it only shows 49%. How can I correct this problem. Thanks
