Y700 Power management Driver Installation failed

2015-12-21, 6:30 AM

Hi,

 

I did a clean install of Windows 10 in my new Lenovo Y700. I was able to install all drivers sucessfully except the following:

 

1. Energy Manager and Flight Mode Driver

2. Lenovo Energy Management driver for Windows 10 (32-bit, 64-bit) - Notebook

 

I don't get any error msg. The instalation just ends abruptly.

 

As a result, I am not able to get the power/battery management features in the lenovo settings app. I am particularly interested in the features that doesn't allow the battery to charge fully.

 

Any advice would be of great help! Thanks so much.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community gilroh !

 

With Windows 10, the battery Conservation Mode is now an option of the Lenovo Settings app which is available from the Windows Store if it isn't already installed on your system.  The earlier Lenovo Energy Management applications were deemed not compatible for Windows 10 and that is why the Conservation Mode function was incorporated into the Lenovo Settings app.

Hi,

 

I have also this problem. It fails exactly as shown on your Command Prompt screen, completely identical printout.

What I see though is that it tries to install the AcpiVci driver from the AMD64 directory and not the x86 directory. At least my Ideapad Y700-15 ISK comes with a Intel i5-6300HQ CPU.

It is doing:

pushd C:\drivers\Energy_Manager_and_Flight_Mode_Driver\AcpiVpc\AMD64\ 

instead of:

pushd C:\drivers\Energy_Manager_and_Flight_Mode_Driver\AcpiVpc\x86\

 

And:

C:\drivers\Energy_Manager_and_Flight_Mode_Driver\AcpiVpc\AMD64>pnputil.exe -i -a *.inf

instead of:

C:\drivers\Energy_Manager_and_Flight_Mode_Driver\AcpiVpc\x86>pnputil.exe -i -a *.inf

 

It seems like the install script, install.cmd is not able to determine which CPU is being used or the version we have downloaded is not for the Y700.

 

Is there anybody from Lenovo here that can tell us what is going on and why this installation fails?

 

Regards,

Frode

I have the same issue.

 

Y700-15 ISK i5-6300HQ without a pre-installed OS, now running Windows 10 Pro x64. Energy management drivers downloaded from lenovo.com failed to install.

 

Fix would be greatly appreaciated.

Frode, i think somethign else is at fault. I believe we both have 64 bit architecure on our windows install. AMD64 is where it should be pulling the driver from.

 

The amd prefix is counterintuitive, just a holdover from a licensing agreement  since amd beat intel to the x64 punch for consumers.

Hi,

 

I was not aware of that. I have only known Intel 64-bit as x86-64 and I thought AMD64 referred to the AMD processors only. However, Google tells me you are right, which probably means that x86 is the 32-bit drivers and AMD64 the 64-bit version. Being so I agree with you that something else clearly is going on, but what? I had hoped somebody from Lenovo would be able to explain and help us out, from that corner it is astonishingy silent. Don't they have a clue or don't they care?

 

Regards,

Frode

I'm not certain if they patrol these forums enough. Maybe i'll give them a call later.

 

I'm not sure how this affects us because i did not do a battery benchmark before and after i reformatted the system.

Well, They pushed out a new driver. 

 

http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-y-series-laptops/y700-touch-15isk/downloads/DS105474

 

Please correct me if i'm mistaken. But thank you for publishing another broken driver that does nothing.

And what is with the lack of documentation on update patches. Where is the transparancy? Change log?

Try download Lenovo Energy Management from Windows 8.1 drivers (Y700 is not listed but it works perfectly for me) Conservation mode, power options, battery gauge reset...) And I am using Windows 10 (Clean install)
