Power Management Driver 10 (32,64) won't install

#1 Post by HPG1945 » Mon Oct 31, 2016 6:37 am

Lenovo Companion keeps telling me that the above driver is a critical update (this is on an X1 Yoga running Win 10 1607). The Companion downloads the driver, appears to install it, reboots, but then if I check for updates again the Companion tells me that the driver is still a critical update. This merry dance seems to be able to carry on for as long as I want it to.

Does anyone have any suggestions for why the driver isn't installing even though it appears to be?

hello and welcome to the thinkpads open forum..

driver won't install..?

what I would do is a hard reset, then try again..

then run a diag on the whole system..

also, are you sure your thinkpad has other drivers installed that THIS driver might need..?

just so you know, i'm still using win 7.. on this box, but win10 on two X1's

Thanks for the suggestions (and the welcome). Your question about whether it needed other drivers encouraged me to do what I should have done originally, namely to check the state of the driver that is ostensibly being updated. It turns out that they're one and the same (1.67.12.16); that is, the update has clearly worked, but for some reason Lenovo Companion misreads the situation and thinks that it hasn't.

Duh.

Perhaps I should stick to things within my capability, such as seeing if I can still remember how to count to twenty without taking my shoes and socks off.

Thanks!
