Re: Low Battery Alarm For Laptop

It would be interesting if you give us more information on your laptop , the brand (ACER, ASUS, HP, DELL, etc..) And possibly what version of Windows is installed on your PC (Windows 2000, XP, VISTA, ...) .

Personally in my opinion there is ACER ePower Management software in acer laptop , Which allow to Set beep alert When Battery is Low

On XP you have the option: Goto "Control Panel", "Sounds and Audio Devices" then to "Sounds" tab and there you can assign a sound to: Critical battery alarm or to Warning of low battery. try that it should solve your problem

Re: Low Battery Alarm For Laptop

If you have a laptop, it may be useful to activate the alarm on your machine that is triggered when battery low.
  1. Start, Run and type regedit
  2. Locate the key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
  3. Create a new value (type: string) and give it the name LowPowerActive
  4. Then assign it a value 1

Re: Low Battery Alarm For Laptop

Battery Alarm is a Windows Vista program that will monitor your battery life and alert you when you are getting low on power. All settings are customizable so it will notify you when you want and how often you want to be notifed. To install it, just download the zip file and extract it. Then run, setup.exe (If you manually installed an older version please manually remove it). It seems to work in Windows 7 as well.
