No Desktop Pop Up Alert for Low Battery

Q: No Desktop Pop Up Alert for Low Battery

I own two new Dell Laptops, one a Precision workstation and the other an everyday Latitude, both running Win 7 Pro. Both have new batteries, so that's not an issue. Please do not suggest I check my battery. My system power settings are correct for both AC power and on battery, so that's not a problem either.
I replaced a Dell XP machine and an older Compaq machine running a Win 7 32 bit upgrade from Vista. Both of the older machines, upon reaching the preset low power settings limits, would open a pop up window on my desktop and alert me to either save my work and shut down or plug in the power cord. It would supersede and open on top of any work windows I had open. Both of the two new machines have no such pop open alert window and my computer often hibernates unexpectedly. Not a crisis, but a real pain when in the middle of work. I know that there are taskbar icon notifications and audible alert tones, but neither is useful for me. I must keep my computer muted when working and my taskbar is set to extreme hi-res with small icons, so you can't really notice the taskbar alert when concentrating on your work. Is the desktop pop open alert window gone forever, just turned off somehow, or what? Some one please advise. Thank you.

Preferred Solution: No Desktop Pop Up Alert for Low Battery

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: No Desktop Pop Up Alert for Low Battery

PS - I should explain. When I write "concentrating on my work", I mean that I create complex 3D solid models for expensive tooling and manufacturing businesses in a program which often is on top of the taskbar for screen optimization. They require my full attention and, as the result, the taskbar low power notification is pretty much useless for me. The desktop pop up window, which doesn't now open, worked great.

Hello. Recently, everytime i started my laptop, i've been receving a message stating "The system has detected the storage capacity of the battery below to be very low. For optimal performance, this battery may need to be replaced.Primary (Internal) battery (601)."In fact, i noticed the laptop is descharging way faster than when i bought it three years ago.Searching on the Net, though, i've read about people saying that, in this case, the battery to be replaced is not the internal one but the removable one.I'd like to ask what battery is actually the one to be replaced.Thanks for the attention. Gialdof P.S. sorry for bad English

Hi everyone, So, yesterday I started up my computer and the fan was running unusually high and then shut off immediately.  I plugged my charger into my notebook and then started it up only to find the Primary (internal) Battery (601) message popping up.  This laptop is just over a year old so I searched up on HP forums and found the fix where you uninstall the 'ACPI - Compliant Control Method Battery', turn off your laptop, unplug the charger and charge it into a wall outlet, and then starting up your computer.  I repeated that process twice and then my battery worked again.  I ran a diagnostic test and it showed that my battery was still at 90% capacity.  All seemed well so I went to sleep, only to find that the same problem occured when I woke up and tried to turn on my computer - wouldn't start, alert message, uninstalled the driver twice and then it finally worked, and my battery is holding its charge now.   Does anyone have any suggestions or input that might be helpful? Thank you.

My Lenovo Thinkpad x131e is now used only to record TV shows off an antenna and is always plugged in. The battery died from old age a while back and I get a Lenono warning message in Windows 10 every time I boot the computer. The messaye is that the battery is dead due to normal use and cannot be charged (or something like that). Does anyone know how I can disable that message. It's not a huge deal as it only pops up once evey time the system is booted. But it would be nice to disable it as it will never again be used off the battery so it's nopt worth replacing itas I now use an x270 for those needs.Thanks for any help on this.Russell

Hi,

First of all: I know that I have been having a problem with my HP Laptop Battery, and with its cooling Fan.
However, I am now wondering what detected this error below as long as it was shown even before the notification saying 'the press 'ESC' key for Start-up menu.' Thus, if the BIOS detected that there was a problem with the HP Battery storage', then this error should have been listed after 'press 'ESC' key for Start-up menu.' was passed.

'HP Battery Alert:
The system has detected the storage capacity of the battery stated below to be very low. For optimal performance, this battery may need to be replaced.'
That alert lasted about 15 seconds, and then the 'press 'press 'ESC' key for Start-up menu.' is shown.

Next: This is error below showed me::
'The system didn't detect that a cooling fan is operating correctly'

I know that BIOS detected that a problem with 'Cooling Fan' since the Alert of error was shown after passing 'press 'ESC' key for Start-up menu.'
Any comments would be highly appreciated

A:'Battery Alert' appears before the 'press 'ESC' key for Start-up menu'

I have no clue what you mean by start up menu. But that message is from the BIOS.

Hi

I'm hoping someone can find an answer to my vista problems. It's on a Compaq (HP) CQ60 laptop with Home Premium.

1. My low battery alerts don't work properly. I have it set to alert me of low battery at 12% ish and then hibernate at 7%. I have only ever seen the low alert once I think so it just hibernates with no warning. I get the low battery warning triangle on the battery tray icon but no pop ups. Also there is no 'Time Remaining' just a percentage but I think this is a problem that doesn't have a solution.

2. Occasionally my start bar (which I always have set to auto hide) stops hiding. It sits on top of the status bars of my programs and is really annoying. I can't seem to see any pttern to why/when it does it. Sometimes turning off auto hide and then turning it back on will fix it but this doesn't always work.

3. After resuming from sleep MSN/Windows Live won't work. It is still running but it logs me out and won't log back in. It's effectively a dead window that looks like it's running but no buttons work. Only way to get it back is kill it in task manager & restart it.

Hope someone can come up with some ideas?

Thanks a lot

Phil

Hi All,

Does anyone know of any free Desktop Alert type of programs.

All i basically want to be able to do is send a popup message to all users/workstations currently logged on.

I realise that it should be possible with NET SEND / MSG commands but they obviously need the service turned on but i dont want to do that, plus i hear doing to all workstations doesnt work so well.

When we use to use the intY Exoserver for a gateway this provided a popup box message broadcast as part of the client software but we do not use this anymore but miss that ability.

I have search the web and sourceforge but not sure im searching for the right terms to find a free one.

At first, I was alerted of a fake virus. I ran Ad-Aware and removed the malware it found. Tried to run SpyBot as well but was unable to because it would not connect online even though the computer was connected to the wireless network. My friend managed to download and run an AVG scan through a proxy site, but the scan resulted in being corrupted because the computer shut itself down in the middle of it. Along with AVG and Spybot being blocked, the virus isn't allowing me to view any other sites that could allow me to solve the problem. It has also added a couple of items to my desktop that lead to 'unsightly' websites.

However the file just creates a directory and then unzips into it. but does not try to install. Is this right or is it because i have Win 10 pro? As this is for the bios i don't want to try to install without proper instructions which were not suppplied.

Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with SDFix and remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
Remember to re-enable the protection again afterwards before connecting to the Internet.
Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%

Hi

I am using an outlook 2003 for a POP email account.

My mother's computer began having this "Resident Shield alert" popup yesterday morning.
Pops back up if you close it, redirects the browser to other sites.

In an effort to "fix" it, we tried installing Norton 360. (My brother has a purchased copy, which is good for installation on 3 PCs).

Upon installation, I got a windows message about certain files no longer being found and requesting a Windows XP service pack 3 CD. After a few moments, the PC rebooted itself to a blank desktop. Just the background - no icons or taskbar. Right-clicking the desktop brings up no menu.

I can access most things with Task Manager, except for explorer.exe.

I've got a DDS logfile, but didn't proceed with GMER, as I can't follow the posted instructions for that since I can't get to the directory it's been saved to.

I could try and uninstall norton, but don't want to screw things up more than they already may be. Here's the DDS log.

I have two email mailboxes that are set up in my Outlook, my own personnel one and an additional shared mailbox. My question is:
Is it possible to have the desktop alert message to appear when an email comes into the second mailbox (it currently only flashes up when an email comes into my personnel aco****)? Is this possible?
 

A:Outlook 2003 Desktop Alert Settings query

Not that I know of. I usually just mark the inbox as a favorite so it appears in the favorite section and watch the number in parenthesis beside the favorite. To mark a folder as a favorite you will need to right-click on it and select "add to favorite folders." Another spin on this is to have a rule setup that automatically forwards the mail messages from the second account to your primary. The problem with this though is redundant (repeated) data.

Got a PC in the office that on a daily basis, although not at every boot up, gives the following alert...

System Battery Voltage is Low. Strike F1 to continue, F2 to Run the set up utility

In the set up utiltity, Power Management option, the settings are as follows:

Suspend Mode F3
AC Power Recovery OFF
Low Power Mode DISABLED

Don't know if any of these setting are relevant, but I thought I'd include them anyway.

Can the system battery voltage issue be sorted through set up utility or is it a case of replacing a piece of hardwar e.g. system battery?

PC is a Dell 8300 series with Windows 2000Pro
 

A:Solved: Boot up alert - "System Battery Voltage is Low"

I wpould suggest opening your pc and locate the CMOS battery. i looks like a big clock battery on your motherboard. press down the battery with one of you fingers to ensure the battery is properly seated. obviously ensure that the pc is turned off before doing so. if this does not resolve you problem, i would suggest replacing the battery.

Hey guys, I been trying an looking everywhere for a way to fix this issue without wiping my Virtual Machine and reinstalling. I was able to determine that the issue was caused by IE8 when first opening upon a fresh install and selecting the settings for IE8.

Somehow during this process, IE8 assigns a security risk to my User Files folder on my Desktop. I'm not sure how this even happened as I've done many many installs and have never had this issue.

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!!

Here's a screenshot of what I'm seeing.

This issue just has started. It worked for the 3 years I have owned 20007. I have all the correct boxes checked, I think. The only thing I changed, which coincided with the alerts not working, was added an IMAP account.

Could the adding an IMAP account disable the desktop alert feature?

A:Outlook 2007: No Desktop Alert on new emails after adding IMAP account

First let me clarify. I don't have Outlook 2007. But I do have 2003 on one of my machines.That said, I don't believe that just adding an IMAP account would have an adverse effect on your alert settings unless you somehow inadvertantly disabled the feature during the setup of the account. Again, I'm working with 2003, but in my main navigation menu, under Tools, I have a category for Rules and Alerts. This includes an interface for setting up the various rules for your email alerts. I'd start there and make sure all of your preferences are still set up correctly.Hope this helps,Bill

I registered to this forum simply to reply to someone who had posted a few days ago about the problem of hao123 hijacking the homepage of his browser (which redirects it to hao123.com). Being a newbie here I was not able to directly reply to him to help. But I've also seen this problem asked on other forums with no solutions.
 
The latest hao123 simply appends its URL to all the Windows shortcuts to your browser.
 
So for example if you right-click on the Windows desktop shortcut for Firefox, and look in the "Target:" box, chances are, you'll see that the hao123 URL has been appended to the link to the browser file.
 
So, after you use Malwarebytes or another reliable anti-malware program, check to see if the hao123.com URL has been appended to your browser shortcuts. Your system may not be infected anymore -- it's just the addresses in the shortcuts to any browser installed on your Windows computer that you need to manually change.

My computer was crashing all day yesterday with a blue screen of death saying 'Page Fault In Nonpaged Area' yet I hadn't made any recent hardware changes. It was crashing every two hours or so, and I left it off all night. However when I booted it up this morning I found my clock saying Virus Alert, all the icons on my desktop were deleted and three are now there saying 'System Crash Fixer', among other things. Also the start menu is limited and you can't open anything from it. I tried running combofix which I already had and nothing happened, so I downloaded SDFix and tried running that, again nothing happened. I re-booted into safe mode and yet they would still not run. Hijackthis will not run either, and task manager won't open. Also if not in safe mode, explorer.exe will close about five minutes after starting the computer up, and since task manager doesn't work, there's no way to bring it back.

I fail to see how I can eradicate this virus if it's stopping me from running anything to get rid of it.

Please help.

Hello all!

This has just recently started happening, this morning, my desktop screen had become a blue screen with a yellow warning "Warning: Spyware threat has been detected on your PC." along with some more spyware warning and a hotlink to "scan my pc for spyware." I believe this to be false and could be causing the spyware itself. I am also getting system alert bubbles that pop up in the lower right hand corner (near the clock) giving me several different warning pertaining to my computer being infected with spyware and when I click, it brings me to IE websites to purchase/download spyware products. I am pretty computer savvy, yet I am new to the HijackThis Logs, etc. This problem has never occured before today, and I hope I can get it fixed.

Here is what I have attempted to fix the problem:

Ran a full system scan with Norton Internet Security/Virus Scan (1 infected file, fixed)

I also downloaded the latest SpyBot (Search & Destroy) software, which I ran twice, both times it found several problems and both times I clicked fix, with little green checkmarks appearing next to each problem, and rebooted my computer. (I'm assuming that fixed it, however I still have the spyware problems)

I also downloaded Windows Defender, and to no avail. the problem still exists.

Please let me know what I can do to fix this issue.

I am running Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.12
Windows XP Media Center Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

I have a problem with my laptop. My first evidence was that the wallpaper changed to a message about a Virus Alert. I have been a computer user and hobby programmer since the Apple II days so I recognized this right away as a problem. I soon realized that I had shortcuts on my desktop for Error Cleaner, Privacy Protector, and Spyware & Malware Protection also. I recognized these from a friend's description from a problem he had a year ago. I then noticed that where my traybar clock should indicate AM or PM the text VIRUS ALERT! was present. I didn't realize that text could even BE changed. I also started getting fake dialog boxes popping up warning me of a virus threat and wanting me to install the recommended software to fix it. I knew better than that so I closed those using Alt-F4 as much as I could. I also had Internet Explorer windows popping up and trying to load pages from a risking looking URL. I turned off my wireless adapter's antenna so I wouldn't be on the internet. Apparently the virus had started working on broadcasting before I noticed this because a little later my ISP called to let me know I had a virus and that he had shutdown my connection temporarily. I told him I knew and that I had disconnected the offending machine from the internet already. He wished me luck and told me he would turn my connection back on so I could use another computer to troubleshoot the problem. I downloaded AVG 8.0 and ran it twice. The first ... Read more

Thanks for the help in advance
 

A:Battery for a DESKTOP COMPUTER

My two penn'orth but I'd be happy to be corrected: to run a modern desktop PC for any length of time, and without using really exotic (= expensive and user-unfriendly) batteries, you would need a hefty car battery and a very meaty inverter to convert 12 volt DC to your mains AC voltage at the necessary wattage.
If you require only to stop your PC being shut down abnormally, take a look at UPS's (uninterruptible power supplies).
