2nd Request - PCI Memory Controller for ThinkPad T500 2081-CTO OS Vista 64bit

2013-05-15, 18:40 PM

Evidently the PCI Memory Controller driver is not installed on my ThinkPad T500 2081-CTO OS Vista 64bit and shows up as an error when running the Lenovo System Tool Box.

 

Searching this forum I found one psot as follows BUT thisis for a T-200 laptop.

 

Re: Driver for PCI Memory Controller

You need the driver for Intel Turbo Memory.  Only Windows Vista can use Turbo Memory, so we only have a Vista version for the driver:

Is this driver appropriate?

 

Do I need the PCI Memory Controller driver .. and if so where do I find it for my laptop?

 

Thanks.

Solved! See the solution

I would suggest that you forget about turbo memory. Intel quit talking about it and they have not released a driver since 2009. That is 2 years before service pack 1 was released. I ran tests and I was never able to measure any improvement with a card installed. As far as I am concerned, it is just something else to break and interfere with other components.,
