Preferred Solution: windows 10 error while loading resource DLL power manager gauge

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.)

Before I delve into my inquiry, I want to apologize if this has been discussed and figure out elsewhere already and, if so, would request being pointed in the proper direction..I have a Thinkpad T530 2359CTO. If you unaware, this comes with the Nvidia NVS 5400M non-integrated graphics card. I recently updated the Nvidia card's driver and noticed something...When Lenovo's Power Manager is run on Basic mode, within the Power Mode tab it has the "Intel Turbo Boost Technology" and a button to enable or disable it. It also would display two gauges (CPU usage in blue and GPU usage in green).When playing a computer game (for example Need for Speed), it would show that the GPU has been engaged and tapped and shows its usage through the gauge. For the CPU, it (apparently) does a bit of overclocking where the fan speed goes to MAX and performs at up to 117% (as seen on the gauge). After updating my Nvidia card's driver, I've noticed that the GPU gauge that used to display is not there anymore! Just black space where it used to be. I can see the CPU gauge still.I tried reinstalling the program, installing the power management driver (i'm not sure if it has anything to do with the Power Manager or not...), and of course, the Nvidia driver is up to date (because that's what started this whole thing).My main question is whether Lenovo knowlingly stopped support of this feature, plans on bringing it back, or is this a bug and I have some troubleshooting to do? I also would like to know if a... Read more

A:Power Manager & Nvidia gauge (missing)

I *think* it was discontinued because the GPU gauge would force the discrete GPU to be active when Power Management was running, regardless of whether a program actually needed to use the discrete GPU.Not 100% sure, though.

On a Windows 8.1 laptop I've started getting (about once per week) clusters of 6-12 NTFS Error 134: "The transaction resource manager on volume C: encountered an error during recovery. The resource manager will continue recovery." It does not happen
only when restarting, and seems unconnected to any particular activity. The computer functions normally, with no other signs of trouble.

Here's what I've tried:

Chkdsk /r (no errors)sfc /scannow (no errors)fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\There are no files in the %Windir%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine folder (checked for hidden files too)There is plenty of hard drive space.I ran a third party hard drive checker (HD Tune Pro) that found no errors.
One question regarding the phrase "encountered an error during recovery." Recovery from what? The computer wasn't restarting, or doing anything that I could see.

The steps above came from several sources, some of which were directly relevant to the NTFS 134 error, others which were relevant to Transaction Resource Manager errors:

While preparing to clone the disk (which has not been completed for unrelated reasons) I also turned off Hibernation, the swap file and System Restore, then defragged. That seems to have decreased the freqeuncy of the errors, but they still occur in clusters
of 6-12 at a time.

Can someone please suggest what I might do to solve my problem? During Windows start-up I get come up the two error templates I've detailed. I can get rid of them easily enough and the PC continues to start OK, but for about 10 - 15 minutes runs rather slowly. If I open a programme it is VERY slow to further open [say a specific e-mail within a list of new ones, or, a particular document within WORD. Worst of all is opening an e-mail which has a link to a website. The link shows as you would expect, but to get through to the relevant website often takes 5 or more minutes. I'm told I have software which isn't running through its start up properly as Windows opens, probably something which hasn't loaded or been removed / deleted properly [by me], but WHICH software? How can I identify it and delete it properly? I've tried Registry Cleaners and they don't [at least so far] make any difference. Thanks for any suggestions !

A:Slow indexing problem codes -"Error in loading string XML is 2" & Resource DLL failed

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work. ...

8.00 GB RAM
64 - bit Windows 7
GeForce 550 TI
Rosewill RNX-N300X Wireless LAN PCI Card
Everything worked well and it was great. Then I upgraded my 550 TI to a GeForce GTX 750 TI and now I'm getting an error with my Rosewill LAN card that says " This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)". I've tried Uninstalling and reinstalling both drivers for the 750 TI and the LAN card. I have tried taking them out and putting them back in. If I use them seperately they both work fantasticly, its just together that they don't. Neither of them are broken, and I'm truly stumped at what to do. I was thinking it might be a windows thing which is why I posted this in Windows 7 and not in networking or hardware. I was even thinking it might have something to do with the BIOS but I really don't want to entertain that thought unless its either the last option or makes the most sense because I don't like messing with the BIOS.

After a power outage my computer died. I replaced the power supply, after which I got the infamous "Error Loading OS" message. My HP computer did not come with disks (the OS is supplied in a separate partition), so I borrowed a copy of XP Pro and with the CD inserted (but NOT booting from the CD), the machine boots properly. All my programs, data, etc. are there and I can see the whole drive using Windows Explorer.

Next I tried booting off the CD and running recovery. This process requires the Administrator password which we don't have. So, I rebooted as above, logged in as another user with Admin rights, changed the password for Administrator, and tried again. No luck. It still says I have the wrong password.

I'd really like to avoid reloading the OS from the boot partition (even if that's possible). Any ideas on how I can get the Recovery process started?

I was preparing to install a new version of Ad-Aware and used the Uninstaller that came with the old version. At the end of the uninstaller, I was prompted to re-start the computer. Two things happened. First, the bootup sequence stopped with just my "wallpaper" graphic displayed on the screen (no Desktop nor System Tray). I recovered by using Ctrl-Alt-Delete to bring up the Task Mgr and closed Windows. Then, via Clean Boot, I ran System Restore to bring the system up successfully. (This bootup "failure" has happened before and I need a "fix" for it!)

Secondly, now, with the system restored to a point prior to uninstalling Ad-Aware, I have tried to launch the older version of this program. Both the Desktop Shortcut and the program exe (in All Programs) result in getting only the error msg: Resource Manager Will Not Load" -- Ad-Aware will not launch!

I would appreciate help on either/both problems.

Try uninstalling Ad-Aware in Safe Mode.

However, the Windows Installer service won't run in Safe Mode.

You'll need to first run SafeMSI in Safe Mode. Then, uninstall Ad-Aware.

You list two video outputs. You put one monitor on each output? Is one a video card and the other onboard video? Usually when you add a video card the onboard video is automatically turned off in the bios. Besides that the Radeon DH4350 should be able to have two monitors connected and not need to use the other one. If above is true, you can turn off the onboard video by going into the bios. Plug both monitors into the video card only.

Hi Alho,

This issue was covered before, basically Avast have not created all the required WMI properties (root\SecurityCenter\AntiVirusProduct) used by the Security Center/diagnostic report, I did create a tool capable of adding the missing entries but Microsoft deprecated the AntiVirusProduct class Security Center used (No AV installed for Vista (perfmon.exe bug!) - Vista Forums)

You'll have to ask Avast to provide instructions on re-registering their product with the Security Center for showing with diagnostics reports unfortunately.

Hi, I was having an idiot moment while trying to get my laptop to open the bios setup by hitting f2. I tried other function keys without the result I wanted. I hit f10 which brought me to the "edit boot options" and erased what it said there and simply typed setup thinking that might so what I wanted. To my surprise, it did not. Instead windows boot manager now will only load windows setup to restore my machine to factory settings which I DO NOT want to do. I have tried booting in safe mode but it is trying to load in safe mode for windows setup. I tried the boot manager and that says windows setup as the operating system [EMS Enabled] I have tried other combinations and other advice from other forums with no success. It won't load anything except windows setup. I need the stuff on my hard drive and cannot loose it. I probably deserve it for being a knoob at this point. Anyone knows what I can type in the edit boot options screen to get it to load windows normally or get the boot manager to load windows and not windows setup?

Good day to all

I was wondering if this is normal any help would be great.. thanx in advance

A:Is This A Normal Amount of running programs in the resource manager

I can't see the total number.
Some are essential services some are applications you must have chosen.

I tend to scrutinize auto startup programs (see by typing "msconfig.exe"). If they are applications which you only need to run when you need them then I untick the startup box. I'd stick to applications you have personally installed and know you don't need at startup. Some will be essential.

When I use Task Manager > Performance > Resource Monitor, the dialog consists only of a static "screenshot" of the Task Manager window. The screenshot is the part of the TM window that would normally be hidden behind the Resource Monitor dialog. The screenshot is the same size as the RM dialog.

In Control Panel > Display, I currently "Medium - 125%".

If I alter the setting to "Smaller - 100% (default)", the RM works as expected.

If I change the Display setting back to 125%, the RM shows only the "screenshot".

I would be grateful for any advice.

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, I'm at a loss and afraid I've lost all my files.   Every time I restarted my computer I kept getting the Windows Boot Manager error message: Status: 0xc000000f Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data. However, after googling and trying numerous methods to repair this, I now keep getting prompted with the Windows Recovery Manager.  I assumed that choosing the default factory restore option would prompt me with a back up option, but it didn't and proceeded to reformat.  I quickly shut my computer down. I don't know what to do next because now all I get is the Windows Recovery Manager option. Any help would be much appreciated!

A:Windows Boot Manager Error / Windows Recovery Manager Issue

If this string of events actually did start to reformat the drive, it might still be recoverable.  I would boot the computer to an independent OS IE: Linux Live on a CD or DVD and then look at the drive.  Then use that to copy your data to another drive.  Once the data is saved, then do whatever you want with this corrupted drive.  Do not try to continue with any other operations until the data is saved elsewhere.Since this PC came with Vista, once the data is saved, you could try the HP REcovery Manager to restore the original OS. Or just start over this a new install of windows 7

Hey everyone,

I have been experiencing a slow laptop recently. My laptop would freeze and then crash and sometimes I received the BSOD.

I ran tests to see for viruses and none were located. I also ran a CHKDSK and there was many files that were replaced.

But upon running a SFC /SCANNOW, the Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix them.

From reading various threads on this, I used tom982's advice and have attached the error log in a zip file.

Can anyone offer any assistance? After running the CHKDSK, my laptop has been running fine and I have not encountered any lags or my laptop freezing up again. Appreciate it!

I saw another thread with this title however I am starting a new one because my issue is a tad bit different.

I am trying to run the ?sfc /scannow /OFFBOOTDIR=f:\ /OFFWINDIR=f:\Windows\? (obviously without the quotes) and getting an error - Windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation.

my situation is rather unique though - I am using a PE disc to run this after using another application that allows me to unlock the enterprise encryption that is on the actual hard drive - the reason being is that the machine is booting to the E drive (the recovery partition) and not the windows partition which is the C drive - but technically the F drive in the PE explorer window.

I am currently working with the encryption vendor but thought I'd reach out and see if anyone had any suggestions while I wait and wait and wait and wait!

A:SFC error: "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation

Hi, not entirely sure what you are up to, if you are running a sfc offline then you are most likely accessing the windows RE (repair your computer) option from a command prompt.

At the x sources prompt first type (in red)

bcdedit | find "osdevice" (exactly as shown here)

Press enter, whatever drive letter is returned use in your sfc offline cmd, you first have to change to that directory (assume f:) at the x sources type:-

F: (press enter) at the F: prompt type your sfc cmd.

If this still gives an error at the f: prompt type:- (in red)

fsutil resource setautoreset true %systemdrive%\

Press enter, you should receive a success message, try the sfc cmd now.

For a few days my now PC has used insane amounts of RAM and I haven't got a clue what's causing at as it's not all listen in Task Manager or Resource Monitor.

As the screenshot below shows: I have 16GB of RAM installed, the processes (when counting "Commit" section values) used up around ~2,5-3GB in total, but yet the RAM usage is at ~11,9GB.

I know ofcourse that the OS in itself generally takes up ~2-3GB, but even then I'm looking at ~6GB of used RAM without any clue what's eating it up.

I have ofcourse rebooted the PC several times. Right after the reboot everything seems fine, but slowly the RAM usage runs up.

As a matter of fact while uploading that screenshot and typing this my total RAM usage has risen to ~12,8GB.

Any ideas?

A:Insane RAM usage which isn't listed in Task Manager/Resource Monitor

Post a screenshot of Task Manager - Performance tab. This contains important information not found anywhere else.
The "commit" of a process has no relationship to the memory usage of a process.

On our prior T540-T560 thinkpads we were able to use SCCM with PXE and load Windows 10 images to our new laptops. With the new T570's it gets to the System Center Configuration Manager screen, freezes for a minute or two and then restarts....this is right before we'd USUALLY put in a password, Choose what image to load and it starts the imaging process.  We've added the Lenovo T570 drivers to the image. We're using the Secure Boot and Security Chip options in the BIOS   - just like w/the previous models.Any ideas?Thanks for your help.

I had noticed my PC's performance slowing considerably over the past 2 days and it even got to the point where it was taking task manager 10 minutes to load if at all. I tried a number of fixes such as disabling superfetch & windows search, fixing
my RAM, updating Windows 8.1, keeping it turned off for 18hours although none of those worked - I did think maybe if I created another account it would have helped, which it did for an hour til the Disk Usage went haywire again. I wouldn't have to load a single
program for it to be 100% and I am in a desperate need of help.
