What is Lenovo Modern IM Controller?

Q: What is Lenovo Modern IM Controller?

And why is it sucking up 100% of my RAM and disk usage? Oddly, not CPU.I initially thought the culprit was the system and compressed memory, but after it happened a few more times, I noticed that that was only a symptom of the IM Controller. The whole thing is seemingly random. It'll spike when playing a game, or using Skype, but also, on occasion when just browsing the web. So what is this controller? Why is it slowing down my computer? And is it even necessary?

Preferred Solution: What is Lenovo Modern IM Controller?

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.)

I would also like to know what this Lenovo.Modern.ImController.PluginHost.exe is. Is it required? can it be installed? It's running on a Thinkpad E520 and becomes unresponsive and makes the system lock up several times a day according to Windows 10 reliablility history. Any insight would be appreciated. Here is another related post, which has been seen and commented on by Lenovo.

I had been having a problem with my laptop that makes the screen reddish for almost a year. I tried everything - creating, setting, deleting Windows color profiles, updating drivers, disabling drivers... I got a bit desperate and started disabling services and processes until I disabled the following process:...and my screen was suddenly OK. Notice how the screenshot is also reddish. This again is due to that little **bleep**. I don't know what it does but it even manages to crap all over screenshots, not just the display. After I found that this caused the trouble, I deleted all of it at this location:C:\Program Files (x86)\Lenovo\ImController\PluginHost Now everything works fine and I can see white on my screen for the first time in a year.

Computer: ThinkCentre M72eOS: Windows 10 After upgrading from Windows 8.1 to 10 Lenovo Companion 2/Lenovo Support apps nagged me to download and install System Interface Foundation (systeminterfacefoundation.exe). Since doing this, I see  Lenovo.Modern.ImController.PluginHost.exe taking 15% of the CPU (constantly).  Aside from uninstalling System Interface Foundation, does anyone have a fix for this? Not sure what the process is doing with 15% of the CPU as it just uses 8MB of memory and zero disc access. Thanks Christopher

The Lenovo Modern.ImController is part of Lenovo Settings, or more specifically its required "Lenovo System Interface Driver".   The CPU usage may go away by itself it given some time, but if not, go to  Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> uninstall the Lenovo System Interface Driver and reboot,    After Rebooting the problem will go away.     Once uninstalled, you can go to Microsoft store and download Lenovo Settings again, during which you will be prompted to reinstall the Lenovo System Interface, and see if that fixes the problem. Lenovo Settings is not a required program, but does provide some functionality, which is detailed more below.    Lenovo Settingshttp://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories/software/apps/lenovo-apps/settings/ Good Luck,

I have an X230, running Microsoft Windows 10 Professional (x64) Build 14393.447 (RS1).  My "Lenovo System Interface Foundation" is ver. 1.0.069.01.  I have 8 GB of RAM. I have noticed that Lenovo.Modern.ImController.PluginHost (which I understand is part of the Lenovo System Interface Foundation) uses more and more memory the longer the system is up.  For example, at the moment (with an up-time of 4 days and 20 minutes), Lenovo.Modern.ImController.PluginHost is using 871.4 MBs of memory (and 85% of my physical memory is now in use).  In an 8 GB system, this is huge. I see in Task Manager that Lenovo.Modern.ImController.PluginHost is actually divided into 7 PIDs (7872, 7956, 11668, 11528, 13972, 14084 and 14232).  It is 11668 that is consuming the most memory (756,420 K). I have read that Lenovo.Modern.ImController.PluginHost is supposed to release memory when not needed, but this doesn't appear to happen. Comments / help please.

Had this on my X1C 1st gen and my P70, its a dodgy hotfix not applying correctly from Microsoft Visual C++, stop the windows update service then clear c:\windows\softwaredistribution\download directory, reboot and force the system to look for updates, eventually it will install correctly and the problem goes away.

I have seen a number of posts regarding this problem:  Task Manager shows multiple listings of this item.  It is a memory and CPU hog, but apparently not a necessary system function. I have tried the fix of deleting the files in Windows/Software Distribution/Download, turning off Windows update and rebooting.  Does not make a difference. It does not seem from prior posts that Lenovo wants to take responsibility for this under warranty as it is a "software issue". Does anyone have a solution for this problem?  It makes my tablet nearly useless.

Hello there, I have been facing boot failure for quite a while now on my Lenovo Ideapad 520 laptop. Happens about 7 out of 10 times I turn on my laptop. Whenever I check the Reliability history, there's always this "Lenovo.Modern.ImController.PluginHost" stopped working. When the boot failure doesn't happen, there's no such stopped working thing there but it shows up after a few minutes in the Reliability history. Hadn't updated Windows for months so I expected it to go after the latest Windows update but it didn't. I'd appreciate any help.

Since I started using Lenovo Vantage features a week or two ago, such as the thing that appears in the system tray and that feature that stops the battery charging to 100%, I have been finding that the Lenovo.Modern.ImController.PluginHost Uses Excessive Memory process goes through frequent periods of using a lot of CPU. During these periods the overall CPU usage is even higher, suggesting that this plugin is calling on other processes. While these periods only last for a few minutes, they involve a lot of fan noise and are therefore very annoying. Is there any way to get them to quieten down? I'm using a Yoga 710.

Hello, everyone. Yesterday I bought a lenovo G505s laptop. It came with some kind of preinstalled Windows 8 (Win 8 MM is what it says on the box). Basically all the necessary drivers were already installed. So I hooked it up to the Internet with a network cable. In order for the connection to work, I had to manually input the MAC address in the network controller settings in Device Manager. Then everything was working just fine and I was able to access the Internet from the laptop for like 2-3 hours, but then suddenly the connection broke. It seems that the Ethernet controller simply disappeared. I looked into Device Manager, and it wasn't even shown in there. So I changed the display settings so that all hidden devices would be displayed as well. And now it was there. Then I right-clicked it to see the properties where I found something like "Code 45: Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer.", but I guess it's impossible to physically unplug an onboard controller. Then I unistalled the controller completely and reinstalled the driver, hoping it would work again. But no, now it's gone for good, lost without a trace. It's not even in the hidden devices anymore. It must be either a software or a hardware issue. If it's the former, I hope I don't have to reinstall Windows. Are there any less drastic ways of fixing this? What could be the cause? Help appreciated. Thank you.

A:Lenovo G505s Ethernet Controller missing

I don't know about your particular issue, but the Win 8 mm means you have the standard version of Windows 8 64bit. I called Lenovo support on 11/19/13 and that their response.

My friend gave me his laptop as it was running incredibly slow, I downloaded AVG and found 6 viruses and then started to uninstall all unnecessary programs he had installed from the from the viruses.

In the process I accidentally deleted the qualcomm network controller drivers and software (do not ask me how as I cant for the life of me figure out how)

I have gone onto Lenovo's support page and downloaded the latest software, attempted to download the qualcomm drivers directly and nothing seem to work in re-installing the drivers so I am unable to connect to any wireless networks

I have attached the dxdiag and a screen shot of the device manager page.

Its my friends laptop so I am unable to figure out which model the laptop is over than its a Lenovo B50 and I am unsure if he has done a system restore point. The laptop does have a build in recovery system but says it will delete all data, I am unsure if this will do a full restore to factory settings or delete everything ready for a fresh install

Also I do not have access to any of the original disks as we are away with work in india

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. I've got a Lenovo G580, now five years old. Last week, I pressed the turn-on button and it kept eternally blocked at the logo screen. After some research, I removed out the SSD Disk and I can succesfully boot from an external USB bootable linux live.Furthermore, I can boot the SSD drive If I connect it from an external USB disk reader. It looks like there's a problem somewhere in the hardware that connects the disk with the computer. How can I diagnose where exactly the problem is? The bootable linux live said something about the ATA3 unit (see screeshot attached), so here there might be a clue.Once I've found where does the problem come from, how can I fix it? Thank you in advance.

I installed Windows 7 Pro 32 bit on a New Lenovo ThinkStation P310 from scratch off the .iso image from the Volume Licensing Web site. I have found all the drivers with the exception of the USB Controller. There is a driver on Lenovo's website that says
it is for Win 7 32 and 64 bit but it does not load correctly evidently. Device Manager Shows it with a yellow exclamation Point. Checking Properties it has the following :
Drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
It also lists the following Hardware Id's :

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A12F&SUBSYS_30C017AA&REV_31

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A12F&CC_0C0330
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A12F&CC_0C03
According to Lenovo it should be using the driver I have loaded multiple times as the Renesas driver. Checked Windows updates, installed all updates but still the same. The only 2 things that work plugged into any USB port is a keyboard and mouse. I can
plug anything else into any of the multiple USB ports and the system never appears to even see a device plugged in. Multiple USB thumbdrives I use everyday in multiple PC's loaded with anything from XP to Windows 10 64 bit.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I also came for advice to my friend using the same notebook with better specs(i7) and they are working fine for him. So my question finally is: have anyone solved this problem for the given spec already and/or is it the case of the 64bit system(not fully supported with those specs)? I am frankly out of ideas rn. Cheers, Hubert

Hey everyone, my Lenovo G50 laptop ( I bought it in store from bestbuy January of last year). Recently had a hardware failure and it seems to be directly linked to my attempt of charging my 3DS via PS3 controller charger by powering it through my laptop usb.  I wanted to charge my 3DS but didn't have my original charger so I saw that you can charge it with a PS3 controller charger. That worked. I had my laptop off the battery for the night. The battery died overnight the next morning it wouldnt turn on. I tried leaving it putting on the charger for about 10-15 mins and it still would not turn on. I made sure my plug was working and all of that. A friend of mine recently sent me a lenovo charger to see if my charger died. It still did not work.  So this is a warning that although not 100% sure, DO NOT insert a PS3 Controller Charger into a Lenovo G50. I'm not sure if the same would happen on other models.

Nowhere in the documentation, web site is any info about what kind of controller and hence what size SD cards this model is supporting.Even Lenovo tech support doesn't know that info!I am really hesitant to buy a SDXC card of +32GB only to find out it supports on SDHC cards, thus limited to 32GB... thanks for any useful info, Ralf

A:What kind of SD card controller is in a Lenovo IdeaPad 120S-11AIP? SDHC or SDXC compatible?

Hi ITWorxLA,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
 
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
 
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

I have a laptop Lenovo Y530L-15ICH-1060 model 81LB and until yesterday I was satisfied. I just had to switch to W10-Pro to connect multiple monitors.However, I dropped the sound yesterday, there was a defect in the High-Definition Controller Audio (in the Control Panels - Device Manager - System Devices): this device could not be started (code 10).What with this? Didn't the soundboard go? Thank you for your help.

Hello Guys!  At my workplace we are experiencing with ALL  our x250's that the internal Realtek Sound Controller cant transfer sound to external devices, only picture.  In Device Manage -> System units, I can see that is detects the external input as "High Definition Audio-controller" but has a little warning triangle with an exclamation mark, and you cant select other speakers under sound (in the processbar) except from the build in speakers.  We have tried using all sorts of externalspeakers incl. mini-jack input, but nothing works.  Info:Model: Lenovo x250Win: Windows10 1803 build 17134.376Realtek High Definition Audio (controller) driver vers. 6.0.1.8409    17 Apr 2018 (newest version for 1803)Connection: MiniDisplay-port  I really really hope someone in this forum can help with this problem, as it affect alot of colleagues not being able to play sound on our projectors.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Hello and welcome,
 
The first ID belongs to a Realtek WLAN card.  The 2nd is the Intel IME interface.
 
You don't say what operating system you're running, but one of the WLAN drivers you link is for Realtek - Windows 7 and the other is for an Intel card.
 
If you're running Windows 10 try:

Hello people:

I have an oldie, but a goodie, Logitech Momo steering wheel (You know, the ones they made with the real racing Momo wheels, not the cheap plastic knockoffs around nowadays.) that uses the old game port. My Q is if there are adaptors around that will let me use the wheel with a high-speed USB port? If so, will the controller benefit in any way compared to if it were used with the old analog port? Thanks go out to all that reply.
