Thanks........I'll let you know.

 

In the meantime (pardon my ignorance), what does "You ranked up to Blue Screen Again rank! ‎" mean???

Re: Are ALL my problems related to Power Management?

Not having a "fun time" trying to get that SFC Scannow to run properly/productively.

 

I think it wants the computer to run with "Use Original Boot Configuration" turned on ........which my machine won't do, for whatever reason. Any changes I make to the boot configuration seem to automatically revert to Selective Startup with Use Original Boot Config greyed out.

Thoughts there?

 

Also, you wanted exact model and serial # for the machine. V570 Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 10661066A9U (MTM1066A9U)

and the serial number is **********.

 

I checked the infamous (as posted elsewhere) Task Scheduler "solution" for this error.....and I don't have a Power Manager task listed anywhere in the library.

 

Any other encouragement you can provide? Any and all greatly appreciated.

 

 

Mod's Edit: Serial number removed from public view to protect owner from its unwanted use.

Actually DID get SFC /SCANNOW to run, apparently successfully, and got this result:

 

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.14393]
(c) 2016 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\windows\system32>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

C:\windows\system32>

 

That SHOULD be a good thing, right?

 

But I'm still getting the error message.

 

A guy in another forum said he ended up "wiping" his PC and doing a clean install.

I'm not at all in favour of going to those "lengths".

It is just a rank title that the forum assigns based on the number of postings you have made. After the last forum upgrade those little sayings were updated.  Your ranking use to say something to the effect..... What's DOS?  before the upgrade.  Some people like them, others not.

Basically all SCANNOW verified was that needed system files were present and undamaged. In your situation it sounds like you have a orphan power management driver loading that is no longer needed.  If that be the case and it isn't being loaded via Task Manager or Startup, a clean install might be the best option.

Let me ask what will no doubt be an incredibly OBVIOUS or incredibly STUPID question:

 

Wouldn't it make some sense to just IDENTIFY and DELETE the offending DLL?

Re: Are ALL my problems related to Power Management?

I'm still researching my "loading resource DLL" problem.......of course!.......and I came across a link on Lenovo's site regarding "Clean boot" procedure. (This was on a page all about "Fixing a Windows 10 Update Error") https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/solutions/HT500007?LinkTrack=Solr

 

I found the Clean Boot instructions on a Microsoft page, at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135

 

Strangely, the clean boot procedure THERE is considerably different from the one linked in your message (http://www.thewindowsclub.com/what-is-clean-boot-state-in-windows).......starting with "You must log on to the computer as an administrator...."

 

Maybe I should try THIS method and run the SFC scannow again.

Thoughts?

Yes, it would make sense, but first you have to identify it.  It possible that it has already been deleted, but the system is still trying to load it.  If nothing is being loaded via Startup or Task Manager then I would suspect it is being loaded via the Registry.  If you knew the offender you could then search the registry and remove that entry.  I had hoped CCleaner would have cleaned any orphan entry pertaining to this.

EXACTLY! Shouldn't some resident genius at Lenovo be able to identify ANY and ALL resource DLL's that have anything to do with Power Manager for me so I can head for the registry and clean 'em out?

 

Or would it be faster and/or easier just to start snooping around the registry myself for anything under Lenovo or Power Manager?

Or another option.....  you could just re-install your Energy Manager if you can remember which one was installed.  Then use a free program like IOBit Uninstaller to un-install it.  IOBit Uninstaller does a thorough cleaning during the un-install and might catch any remenants left behind.  Just remember to do the last Power Clean step.
