Didn't happen before. I have downloaded all Lenovo updates and MS updates I have been able to find for Windows 7.Suspect it may have something to do with the fact that under "ThinkVantage Tool Boix>Diagnostics>DXevice Manager Alerts, I have a message that says "Driver not installed on PCI memory conroller" and another message that says "Driver problem on Intel PCIC Compatiable PMCIA Controller". Both give me click options for reinstalling the drivers, but when I do that for the PCI Memor Controller, I get a dialogue box that says the manufacturer of the device is unknown and a message that says: "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28). There is no driver selected for the device information set or element. To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver". Then, I cannot click on the update driver tab and get anything. On the PMCIA Controller, the dialogue box says the location of the device is unknown and the message says: "his device cannot start. (Code 10)".
What to do?

It has begun freezing since I installed Windows 7 32-bit Pro version [retail, not OEM] on my Lenovo X61S laptop. I think I have downloaded all the Lenovo and Microsoft updates related toWindows 7.
I have a SystemsDiagnostic Report and other data in a zip file, but cannot figure out how to attach it to this post. Is that posssible? I would think it could be helpful.
Looks like I am missing drivers from what I can understand of the report. I cannot find the device manufacturer. How is that done?

Hi gjpundsack, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
You can use ThinkVantage System Update to detect, download, and install any missing drivers.
It sounds like the chipset driver might not be installed properly. All the X61 drivers are here:
If you want to do it manually, here's the list of things I installed on my X61 when I upgraded:
Note I did not install Active Protection because I have an SSD.
Hope this helps!

I ncan't find chipset drivers here. Am I missing them somehow? Or do I need to go to Intel for that? If so, do you have a link to that readily available?

I believe that this is the correct chipset driver:

Well, I have downloaded all the drivers and I am still getting hardware error messges. Here's the latest message. What to do next?
