Preferred Solution: mysterious Power Manager error

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.)

We have this problem on a ThinkPad Yoga S1 running Windows 10.  The machine is brand new with a fresh upgrade to Windows 10.  I've un-installed the things relating to Power Management and Power Manage Gauge and then re-installed them through Lenovo's "System Update" -- still comes back on boot-up every time. Does anyone have the solution for this?

When I was inputting my battery charge thresholds, I noticed that the word normally was missing the letter 'a' when I clicked on the dot next to where it shows the condition of the battery. I was surprised that Dell would let something like a spelling error make it to a public version. I am running an up to date v1.0.4 of Power Manager Lite. Does anyone know how to submit there types of errors to Dell? Or more specifically, a proper email to get it to the right department? Thanks in advance.

For a while now, my computer has been shutting down unexpectedly, whenever I run something that might use up a lot of my CPU and Memory. The computer doesn't really get that hot, so I don't think it's an overheat problem (but I'm not sure).

Anyhoo, I ran the AVG PC TuneUp, and it's reporting that a device isn't working properly. It's saying "Windows reports that the "Power Control [2011/02/17 11:59:38]" device is not working properly" in Device Manager. Opening Device Manager, I found what it was talking about under "Non-Plug & Play Drivers", and sure enough, it has a yellow "!" next to it.

Clicking on it brings up a new window, and the device status says "This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)". It won't even give me an option to update the driver, and when I try to start it up, it just brings up an error message saying...

"The system encountered the following error while attempting to start the service
The System cannot find the specific path."

I just recently bought a new battery because the old one was going bad, but regardless if I keep it in or remove it, the error message stays. I don't believe there's anything wrong with the power cord either.

Anyone know what might be causing this? Could fixing this possibly solve my random instant-shut down problems? Anyone have any solutions?

Hello, After a recent update this error message is seen in the Lenovo Vantage app. The issue at first level is that one can no longer set battery specific setting like setting charging threshold. I do not want to rollback the Windows update and I am very certain that this issue can be resolved by other means, any suggestions. This is what i have done already: 1. Download and run the standalone power manager tool from Lenovo support    This does not help as when installing it find the current driver and does nothing saying all is ok2. Download and run the stand alone Lenovo System update tool    This also shows all is ok What I think would help would be to delete the current driver/tool completely and then try steps 1 and 2 above however I cannot find where this driver is installed. Any tips on this matter would be appreciated Thanks

Hi there
Office and in particular Ms EXCEL users


BBC News - The mysterious powers of Microsoft Excel


A:The Mysterious power of Ms Excel --enjoy !!!


Interesting article! I love Excel. I'm able to harness it's powers in many different ways. Back in school during my studies in office systems technology, I passed my Excel courses to near perfection (98%), being the highest grader in these classes. My capacities with Excel even gave me the job I have today. Even then, I kept learning as challenges arose and I came up with solutions: things they don't necessarily teach in school. They can't teach everything about Excel. They teach you to think with Excel, the building blocks of it and then you're on your own to built whatever you can with these blocks.

Macros are also very useful. They complete MS Office programs so well. This portion I'm self taught. And I keep learning every day. I've even learned a few things about VBA on this site thanks to others members.

I encourage people with any questions or issues with MS Office and VBA to ask on these forums. Help is always around the corner.

Have a power supply that most of the time powers on when push-bottoned.

Sometimes doesn't however. And I have toggle the main switch on the rear, the power supply itself, to reset.

Sometimes after doing this it will start all by itself. Sometimes I have to hit the pushbutton again.

It may take a couple times...

CMOS battery I'm guessing is okay - settings seem to be holding. Think I did it maybe three years back.

Hoping to not have to do the power supply again it is so tight to work in. (Antec case ).

I don't get this power button - I've set it to turn off the computer in Power options in Windows 10, but pressing it does nothing! I have to hold it for few seconds to force system to turn off but it won't turn off normally on a normal short press. At least, it does turn on the computer though.

After a power outage (Computer lost all power as well as the circuit for the room) I restarted my Windows 7 desktop to find a new user account there that I did not create. It has a random name "ohlascdrxvzd".

It does not list in the C:/Users folder, but is listed in the Control Panel: User Accounts - Manage Accounts, and on startup it is listed in the Account selection buttons.

I will delete the account from the control panel and restart the computer... I am not expecting it to go away as I have this exact problem (with a different random named user account) on another PC that lost power instead of shutting down correctly as well.

More after restart...
After the restart the Account no longer lists in the buttons to select User account on startup, but it is still listing in the Control Panel: User Accounts - Manage Accounts.
Arrrrrgh! ^ _ ^

Now I am ready to receive help.
Update info:

It is a "Standard user" permissioned account

I have not logged into the account.

The Guest account is turned off.

Every time I shut down my home-grown Access database, I get the following error message:

Table 'TempMSysAccessObjects' already exits.

I can just acknowledge it and shut down, and no harm seems to be done, but this is a new thing, started in the last hour or so, and kind of annoying. I've had my database, well various versions; it's always under construction--for some months now.

The only changes I've made today are cosmetic--literally, just adding some graphics and changing fonts.

So, can anyone tell me what this is and how to get rid of it?

Suddenly I am receiving an error message whenever my computer starts up: After booting and loading all programs a window appears with the message: THE SYSTEM HAS RECOVERED FROM A SERIOUS ERROR prompting me to report it to Microsoft.

The only problem is, there was apparently no error. All programs appear to run normally, there was no crash or even a noticeable blip in any program that I can tell. I can shut down normally and at start up I will received EXACTLY THE SAME ERROR MESSAGE!!!

The error signature goes something like this: 50 BCP1: FOF97000 [email protected]: 00000000 BCP3: FOP9A73 etc.....

I have no idea what this means ....or why this has started. Everything runs normally but this is very disconcerting.

Does anyone have any idea how/ or why this started happening and how I can correct it?

Please let me know.

Major issue here!I loaded AVG last night (and some associated toolbar, per AVG install). AVG immediately flagged two issues (even before I ran a scan). I requested a fix. (note: during AVG install, it requested I remove Norton and I did remove Norton). After loading AVG, Google Chrome got an error stating "This application has failed to start because msjrdu.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem." However, I closed the warning and Google Chrome operated normally. NOTE: I googled the dll file and no entries were found for this mysterious dll. I shut-down the computer and upon re-boot I now get the same warning pop-up when windows boots and for every single exe that loads up upon boot. And for every application I try to open. If I x-out (or close) the pop-up, then my desired application will run (all except Google Chrome and Firefox and Adobe). So far, I have loaded and run many spyware applications (AVG, Spybot, Super Spyware, Malwarebytes). And I ran the online scan from Microsoft (called Safety Scanner via onecare live website). The Safety Scanner ststed that two problems could not be fixed. Finally I ran ComboFix - which told me that I have an infected system32 imm (or something) file.

For the past 2 weeks I've been getting a .dll error on startup.

At first I didn't notice anything wrong (aside from that, obviously) but now the icons for Office, Skype, Messenger, Adobe Reader, and quite a few other programs, have stopped working. The programs themselves are fine. I realised that they're all programs that came with the OS when I installed it; all the shareware I have is ok. I concluded that there must've been an error in the installation. Correct?

I don't really want to reinstall Windows, even with the repair install, because my disk is partitioned (and I think some people have had problems with that) and I'm scared it'll screw up my connection (it's something that happens every time I so much as blink at it, so paranoia is justified).

So I thought, Ah ha! I shall uninstall the programs (none of them are paid for, after all) and then reinstall the lot. Eureka. But -joy oh joy- some of them can't be uninstalled. I get the following error:

Or, in the case of Office, a polite refusal. Uninstallation didn't work, sorry mate.


Additional: now Secunia PSI (just installed) has no icon. Which it did, 2 min ago. This is getting scary.

A:Mysterious error and uninstallation problems

I suggest a system files check. Open an elevated command prompt and enter sfc /scannow.

Also try a repair install. It shouldn't cause any problems, but in the rare event it does, we'll be sure to get them sorted out for you.

Trying to upgrade from 98se to xp with the cd. If I ask the CD to run the compatibility check it soon stops and gives me the message "Fatal Error. Cannot create temporary folder, installation will be interuppted".
If I ignore this and cheekily go on and try an installation of the upgrade anyway, it soon blocks completely in the preparatory phase (with 71 minutes remaining till completion).
I've already disinistalled Norton, Nero, Office 97, I've disconnected a printer and an old modem - but it doesn't strike me as a compatibility problem and I can't see anything that could be causing this to happen - any bright sparks out there got an idea??? I really would prefer NOT to have to go and get a full install. Thanks for reading this.

A:Mysterious Fatal Error during upgrade from 98SE to XP. Help!

Providing you have a 98SE install CD you dont need a 'full' version of XP to do a clean install, you never have needed that version if you have a previous edition of Windows that you can 'show' to the setup routine when asked for proof of your entitlement to upgrade.
If you do, have the 98 CD to hand and boot to the XP CD, obviously, and when you're asked to choose a partition to install to notice there is an ption to delete the partition, so do it, then XP will install on the new partition it creates for itself, a little way into the install you will be asked to put your 98 CD in the drive to verify entitlement after which setup will continue.
Apart from any other considerations a 'clean' install of any OS is always more stable and efficient than an upgrade but you only need the full version if you have no previous Windows OS.

Hi there! Long time listener, first time caller.
My computer started crashing pretty regularly about a week ago. The M.O. of the crash is as follows: Without warning, the mouse and screen are frozen and the machine will not respond to Ctrl-Alt-Del or other keyboard entry. The fan, however, still blows when this state occurs. In fact, I thought the problem may have to do with the fan--as the fan always seemed to turn on right when the problem occurred (though not vice versa of course)--or with moving the machine, as it seemed like it often happened a lot when I would move the machine. However, this seems unlikely as the error does not replicate in Safe Mode.

Interestingly, when I would look in the Event Viewer, there was no record of anything happening at the time of the crashes.

Last night, the machine crashed several times in the span of an hour (which was not particularly unusual at this point)--BUT, then the Blue Screen of Death flashed by for the first time, and the machine restarted itself. After rebooting, the Event Viewer DID show an error, the full information from which I have pasted below my message.

Since that blue screen error, the crash occurs 100% of the time after bootup. Usually, I have about 30 seconds to a minute after startup processes have loaded up before the freeze happens. At this point, I can only boot into Safe Mode. I ha... Read more

I thought I was infected at this point so I ran avast free virus scan; after only a few minutes in it said it had found about 171 infected files.

A:Win 7 Power Options or HP Power Manager ??

HP Factory Install is the worst possible install of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilities which interfere with better versions built into Win7. That's why most tech enthusiasts won't even run such an install but instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Everything needed is in the blue link to get and keep a perfect install just like a million others have done without a single complaint.

If you'd rather first try to clean it up you can try these steps to Clean Up Factory Bloatware
but HP is the worst of all brands for its bloatware so if you ever want to experience native perfect Win7 performance on that machine I'd do the reinstall.

My battery had recently died and I haven't had the time or money to buy a new one. My Dell laptop, which I only bought not even a full year ago, still works as long as it's plugged into a power source. The problem is, and it's the biggest nuisance ever, is that the Dell Power Manager Lite notifies me all the time that my battery isn't working or something along the lines of it. It's extremely annoying because it pops up every few minutes or seconds even and interrupts important things. I've done everything I can to try to turn off the notifications, as there is no real option to turn them off. I can't uninstall this program as it's nowhere in my files. Control panel has no way to uninstall it either. I am stuck with the most annoying popup notification. My question is, how can I turn off power manager lite notifications or uninstall the program completely when there are no straight options?

Hi everyone, I have upgraded my x250 from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and now can?t uninstall the Power Manager.  It gives me a DLL error message when I boot up.  I have tried changing the compatibility view settings to Windows 7 but had no luck.  Does anyone know how I can disable it from boot?   Ideally I would like it completed uninstalled but can live without seeing the error message every time.  Thank you for your help

Hi, I'm running a T61P, Win7 Ent/SP1. System Update repeatedly showed Power Manager 6.67.5 as available after repeated successful updates. I DLd the update and tried to run it manually, but it kept telling me there was an earlier version of PM installed, and did I want to remove it. I said yes, and it seemed to uninstall (and reboot), but trying to run the PM update kept showing the "previous version installed" prompt. I used Add/Remove to uninstall both PM and the PM driver, then searched the registry and removed all references to PM from there, then sarched the hard drive and removed all PM files I could find. I still can't install PM. It's still telling me that there's an earlier version installed. I tried downloading and installing previous versions of PM back to v3, but I still get that frustrating "previous version" prompt and can't get beyond that. Please does anybody have a way to get past this prompt? GaryK

A:can't install Power Manager

After spending $99 on a paid Lenovo tech-support instance that required days of fighting to get through to an ultimately clueless level-2 tech (he tried to use RevoUnistallPro to uninstall a directory containing a downloaded-but-uninstalled version of Power Manager), I solved this on my own and am here posting the solution in case anyone else runs into a similar problem--inability to install Power Manager upgrades with the error message that a previous install exists: Search in the registry for and delete all found occurrences of PWRMGR and PWRMGRV. Once there were gone I was able to install the current Power Manager instance for Win7 (6688 as of this posting). GaryK

Hey, I'm using a Lenovo T430s (Windows 10) . Recently, my DVD RW Drive showed it's powered off, and it wouldn't turn on saying that a specified module of Power Manager wasn't found (see the pic 1). Moreover, the battery icon has dissappeared from the toolbar on the right bottom. Any particular solutions for this?I tried downloading the Desktop Power Manager for this from https://support.lenovo.com/in/en/downloads/ds003852. The installation fails saying there's an older version already downloaded (see pic 2). I'm not able to find the older version also to uninstall it

I've recently purchased a new laptop from comet, A HP Pavillion dv6000 if that means anything to you!!! It was an display model and the unistalled the bits they had put on it!! However I can't get into task manager and when i go to the start button and to the arrow on the right hand side i only have Switch user, Lock and log off!!
To shut down i have to log off and use the power button in the beginning screen!! I don't seem to have a shutdown option when i'm actually in windows!!

I know i can shut it down when I log off but it seems a bit of a faff when i know a shutdown option should be in the start menu!! Has anyone got any ideas where it is??

I'm not an expert in computers so please don't be too technical!! LOL

FOr the last few weeks... I get an error message every time I plug my charger in.  Now I cannot charge my battery.  sometime it works and other times not.  May be related to what ever else is plugged into the house outlets at home... iPad, iPhone, Mac computers, HP printer, etc.

Very annoying and now cannot leave my puter unplugged.

I think it is a software issue as the charger and cord all work fine to keep the puter alive when plugged in.

Just wondering which Linux solution works with this machine at this point, and with a power manager so it doesn't kill the battery by constantly charging to full.  I only see drivers and applications for windows  on the official download site. Windows 7 is on its way out, and Windows 10 while it does work is very slow.

Below is some dumps from a Windows 7 laptop (not the same laptop I posted another thread about before, this one is my laptop); I would appreciate some help in identifying the problem please. Its not a big deal but would be good to fix it.

On Mon 12/13/2010 3:29:32 PM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\windows\Minidump\121410-54288-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x70740)

This problem might be caused by a thermal issue.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

System : XPS13 MLK (9360)
OS  : Windows 10 Pro

Intel Core i7-7560U @ 2.40GHz

(this thread follows this one)
I installed "Dell Command | Power Manager" (v 2.2.0).
In "Thermal Management" when switching between the 4 presets (Optimized, Cool, Quiet and Ultra Performance) it seems that only the first change is working.
For example : 
If I boot with Ultra Performance and decide after to go to Quiet to get rid of fan noise, it works, almost instantly. I monitor what happens with my ears  and with HWiNFO64 and BurnIn Test :
In Ultra Performance all Core Clock are not maxed, reached 3792 MHz (that's the Turbo Speed for Intel Core i7-7560U @ 2.40GHz) and Fan at 6100 RPM
In Quiet each Core Clock seems maxed at ~1696 MHz (although in some of my tests I have seen it at ~2395Mhz, perhaps it's Optimized preset and not Quiet) and CPU Fan at 0 RPM
After that If I choose Ultra Performance mode nothings happens. CPU sticks to the maxed Core Clock until I reboot.
Very annoying to have to reboot to switch back to another thermal mode.
