Re: Helix 20CG won't wake from sleep mode

2016-09-20, 18:42 PM

Hey just to let you guys know, I also tried different driver Versions: 4444, 4483, 4501... none of them worked.

The only one that worked for me so far is the old 4279

When we are talking of driver 4279, what is the full number?

20.19.15.4279? I can find different 4279 for the Intel 5300 such as 10.18.15.4279, 15.40.7.4279... but not 20.19.15...

Hey, good point actually. I downloaded the version from this website:

 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/de/product/84188/Intel-HD-Graphics-5300-for-Intel-Core-M-Processors

 

The website says 15.40.7.4279 but after installation the device manager says 10.18.15.4279. Well the driver names from Intel are a bit of a mystery. They say first number is operating system, second is direct X version and so on. So I think the really important part is just the last one.

I can't not thank you enough Oxtailsoup, both for the explanation and offical drivers location; those were not easy to locate at all!

 

Unfortunately, the 4279 does not turn-on my external monitor for some reason, even though Helix does detect it. This may be a problem only specific to my picky ViewSonic monitor though. I am back so to 4444*. 

 

It is official now, I am afraid to say I am looking for a substitute convertible for my once beloved Helix and after 17 years with some 10 Thinkpads, Lenovo has failed me for first time badly.

 

 

*Update: At the end, I was able to activate the monitor by previously uninstalling it in Device Manager and then installing the drivers 4279. It recognices the monitor as a generic one rather than a ViewSonic, but Windows will detect the monitor and install its drivers for it later on.

Of course, I prevent Windows from updating the Intel 4279 with the wushowhide.diagcab file ( https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3073930 )

Hehe I am glad I could help. Yeah I did not mention this but I also deinstalled the device (and deleted the old driver data) in the device manager prior to 4279 installation.

Yesterday: Turn off Screen => nok.

Changed config to "never turn off screen". Instead I use the blank screen saver. Sad...
