Power manager driver's bug V.2.50 ?

[ Edited ]

Hi, all

 

    I met with this question. That when I install Thinkpad T400 Drivers by TVSU, I took off my battery by some reason. After reboot the system, Windows report a rundll32 error, and power management ultity failed to start.

    After the battery is installed, PM still failed at system start up and windows also report rundll32 error.

    By reinstall the PM drivers, system goes normal.

 

some information about mine:

Thinkpad T400 2767-A98 with Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit Edition

PM version: 2.50

 

moderator note: added PM version number for  clarity.

Re: Power manager driver's bug V.2.50 ?

Hi,

in case the first command produced the error, then this is an issue with Power Manager. In this situation I would advice following:

- delete Power Manager

- make sure, that you have the latest versions of :

- Power Management driver 

- Hotkey driver

- System Interface driver 

-> once all the above is installed, install Power Manager useing the latest version on the lenovo web. 

 * reboot 

- check whether the issue is still present 

 

 Let me know your results.

Re: Power manager driver's bug V.2.50 ?

Haven't helped - still the same error using following:

 

HOTKEY DRIVER
Version:     2.20.0001
Release Date:     2009/06/10

POWER MANAGER DRIVER
Version:     1.53
Release Date:     2009/06/10

SYSTEM INTERFACE DRIVER
Version:     1.01.0805
Release Date:     2008/09/01

POWER MANAGER
Version:     1.60
Release Date:     2009/06/10

 

 

I found that problem is in PWMUICtl.dll file, WinDbg says:

 

Probably caused by : PWMUICtl.ni.dll (
PWMUICtl_ni!Lenovo.PowerManager.PWMUICtl.EffectSettings.Refresh+62c02 )

 

Stack trace:

0013e2a0 101b228c PWMUICtl+0x18014

0013e2fc 101b1d4e PWMUICtl_ni+0x61da3
0013e340 0817471b PWMUICtl_ni+0x61d4e

 

 

Also during installation I saw cmd window with some compiling warnings:

Re: Power manager driver's bug V.2.50 ?

Hi,
one strange situation.
You know, just of curiosity I have configured a T60 with XP Pro SP3 English and updated it fully using TVSU and can not replicate this begaviour.
This migh be only a "scream into darkness" but can you describe me what for all other the preinstalled apps you are using? May be this will bring up some light. Becasue till now, when I can not see it in here it's prety hard to do any more comments to this situation. So basically I'm guessing, what are the differences in my and your situation.

btw: what is your BIOS version? if not the latest , try to update, becayse as mentioned, my system is up to date.

Re: Power manager driver's bug V.2.50 ?

It's 99% related to power schemes problem described here.

I can run PM now (hurry!), but cannot manage schemes...
