Re: Thinkvantage Power Manager Not Working

OS: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

 

I have a similar problem I can see the battery gauage. When I click to launch power manager the program starts up but nothing happens you can see the power manager icon on the taskbar. The icon is present but I can't see any setting at all. 

Running the Power manager version 3.67 for T500. I have uninstalled and re-installed I still encounter the same problem

Any idea or ways to fix it

Re: Thinkvantage Power Manager Not Working

Make sure you have the following software installed, that are prerequisites for Power Manager (these things are available from support website):

1.  hotkeys

2.  power management driver

Re: Thinkvantage Power Manager Not Working

I have no idea.  Is there anything unusual about your system?  Maybe some other software is causing a conflict.

I don't think. The only thing installed on the laptop is Windows 7 Ult, Lenovo drivers, Adobe reader, CCleaner, Google Chrome and Java 6 update 31.

Re: Thinkvantage Power Manager Not Working

Did you just install the OS recently?  Was it a clean install or an upgrade from previous OS?  Did you disable .NET?  I will try a T500 with the same software here.

Re: Thinkvantage Power Manager Not Working

Never mind, I can see from your screenshot that this is a brand new install.  This should work.  I will try a T500 next week.

Re: Thinkvantage Power Manager Not Working

Hello,

The power manager work for me now. Not sure what exactly fixed it because I updated couple of things (maybe a combination of updates)

 

1. Windows Update (did not fix it)

2. DirectX Update (windows site)

3. Graphic Card Updated (amd site)

 

I checked the power manager after number 2 and 3 update so I'm not sure if it needs both or just one or all  3 of them for it work.

 

Hope it helps for anyone having the same problem 

 

Thank you someotherguy for replying
