    Battery time remaining on Laptop

    I've got a little problem on my laptop!

    The battery icon in the taskbar will display the % battery remaining, but won't display a battery time remaining.

    The laptop is an Acer TravelMate 663LMi, and its running Windows XP Pro SP2.

    Any help appreciated, cheers guys!!

    Ummm, one way may be to make sure the battery is 100%, then running it down to zero, i think that kinda calibrates it. But i also hear running Li-Ion batts down to zero can have negative effects so dont try it before someone else on here comments

    Does that laptop support Acer's ePowerManagement software? If so get it installed - it's quite handy.
