Battery gauge utility freeware? Mitac 6133 Win2kpro

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I have a MItac 6133 Systemsoft ACPI bios V1.11
With windows 98se, it works fine.

After I installed Windows 2kpro, the battery gauge quit

This appears to be a known problem.  Various sites
advise (they conflict) upgrading the bios, but the version mentioned
does not seem to be available.  The Mitac site
appears to say that the upgraded bios' have significant
other problems and stop short of saying they'll even fix
the battery issue.  They apparently issued three upgrades/fixes
within a week.

Rather than mess up an otherwise working system,
is there a freeware battery gauge that will let me
ask the battery its condition?  Doesn't have to be
real time, just let me ask it occasionally.

Thanks, mike
