Re: Windows 7 Gone on V570

That's what I was trying to avoid. The PC is out of warranty and they will charge a nice fee for support which, since they don't provide recovery disks for computers anymore, isn't very fair. I don't want to put a bunch of money into a $600 PC that should be able to fix myself. I'll keep tinkering I suppose but I can't get that WIMAX 6150 off the PC right now. I tried to manually delete the registry entries but it wouldn't let me.


Thanks for trying to help, I do appreciate it.

Re: Windows 7 Gone on V570

Brucegz,  in your screen shot I see you have exclamation or question marks for the SM BUS, network controller, etc.  That would lead me to believe there is a problem with the Chipset driver.  Try reinstalling the Chipset driver first and then install the Intel Management Interface Driver. Then see if that resolves your problem. 


Here are the downloads of those two files...... 


The Windows 7 Chipset Driver.....


The Intel Management Engine Driver......

Re: Windows 7 Gone on V570

hi brucegz,



One last suggestion,

Try this driver for your Wireless

WiMAX_7.5_s64.exe That's Directly from Intel


If that didn't solve it


If you could run another Clean WIndows 7 installation.

Try this installing the drivers in this sequence.

Intel Chipset driver

Restart he computer after chipset installation



Intel Management Engine Interface driver

Intel Onboard Graphics Driver

NVIDIA Display Driver (If your system has dual graphics)

Lenovo Energy Management Software

Intel Wireless WiFi Link Driver

Intel EchoPeak WiMAX Driver

Broadcom Bluetooth Driver

Touchpad Driver

Camera Driver

Realtek USB 2.0 Reader Driver

Realtek High Definition Audio Driver


Hope this helps
