T61P with x64 Windows 7 - all works except the Blue Thinkvantage button

Anyone with an idea how to get this going? I have the update manager running and all x64 updates processed correctly. Only pressing the Blue button doesn't start the app.

 

Thanks,

I just wanted to jump in and say thanks.  I was pulling my hair out with the on screen display / hotkey stuff and I had missed the system interface driver.  I installed that and i think I finally have everything working.  Well, everything but the GPS which I never even tried before.  But thanks for the push in the right direction.

I have to say I have everything working also except for the fingerprint software.  The hotkeys work, the volume and thinkvantage buttons all work.  So far everything except my fingerprint scanner work excellently.  I'm hoping that 7 will be the next great reliable OS, because so far i'm impressed with the Beta version.

there are some posts on here about the fingerprint reader.  I got mine to work by downloading the software discussed in those posts.  Don't remember which ones off the top of my head but if you search for them they are in here somewhere.

Re: T61P with x64 Windows 7 - all works except the Blue Thinkvantage button

All working for me (Windows 7 Ultimate, 64bit, clean rebuild).  Applying the Intel Matrix Storage Manager upgrade broke Windows Update, but copying the iastor.sys driver from another recently rebuilt windows 7 64 system (A T510) fixed this problem.  (To be clear, make a copy of iastor.sys in the windows\system32\drivers directory, rename the copy to BAD_iastor.sys_BAD, then copy the clean version to replace the old. At no time delete iastor.sys - always have a copy in that directory).

 

For me, the Sierra Wireless MC5725 device is what's hiccuping.  The System Management Interface Driver is no longer listed separately.  Anyone have an idea on how to get it?  Is it now part of another driver?  Thanks!
