Re: ACPI\VPC2004

2008-08-29, 20:04 PM

Well, I just bought this one and I don't plan on buying a new one any time soon. It seems to me that Lenovo cares for their customers a little bit more than that. I understand that 64-bit OSes aren't the "mainstream" yet and that businesses are even further from being ready for them, but it seems like there are enough people out there running into this issue that they would create SOMETHING.

 

Besides, advertising that the model supports 4GB of memory would tempt people to upgrade to a 64-bit OS to take full advantage of the entire 4GB. Other than upgrading just for fun/hobby, that's the main reason I went 64-bit. I'd hate to have to drop back down to 32-bit, but if that's what I have to do to restore my battery life to almost triple what it is now, that's what I'll do.

di, try this energycut driver for Y730 - maybe it will handle 64-bit OS.

Did you execute the .exe file or did you use a compression/extraction utility to extract the driver from the executable package? If you just ran the executable, try downloading a compression utility that will extract files from an executable.

 

WinZIP, WinRAR, 7-zip, these are a few utilities that I know of that can extract files from an executable.

 

I am VERY interested to see how this works. I went down to 32-bit Vista Ultimate when I couldn't find this driver because it absolutely decimated my battery without it. If this works, this will be the miracle that everyone who has or has wanted to upgrade to 64-bit Vista has been waiting for.

Hello!

I'm intersted in the driver too. I removed the Vists 64 too. Why did skripatch suggest the driver? The page does not say anything about 64bit.

Regards,

Dmitry

di, I suggest that this driver can help because Y730 are coming with preinstalled 64-bit Vista. They have installed Energycut 3.1 onboard. Maybe this driver will match previous models.

It's just a suggestion - I am not sure.

This probably can help but without any guarantee.

Dear lorneking,

Lenovo support even does not reply to my e-mail, that Lenovo 3000 G410m-mm cardreader does not see SD cards.

Regard,

Dmitry

Dear di.

I recieved bios update from Lenovo Ideapad Techsupport Russia and there was written not to use email to connect to them because they have technical troubles with it.

So why are you asking here something about Russian techsupport? Isn't it just easier to call them and ask?

Also your post about this problem is dated by time when Y730 drivers didn't even exist.

 

Seems like you prefer negotiating your frustation rather than trying to resolve your case.

Looks not nice.

Lenovo publishes the support e-mail on its site. 

I'm not "asking here something about Russian techsupport". I just replied to lorneking message.

It's not "easer to call them and ask" because:

1. I'm in another country on an island.

2. Because they work from 10 till 19, when I work, when I cannot call on personal cases.

I called Lenovo support 10 days ago.
