Last week I had a disk corruption error on my laptop, so I decided to stop being lazy and really look into how my computer's been running. Looked at the event log, and I've been getting the "LMS Service cannot connect to Intel(R) MEI driver" pretty much since I got the computer, only there was no symptom of the problem. Now, I'm getting timeouts and slow boots, so I want to take care of the issue.
Thing is, I have the latest OEM drivers for my chipset. These were released back in March of last year, about the time Intel had a buggy driver out. Intel has more recent generic drivers available. I really want to eliminate this error, so would it be worthwhile/advisable to get the generic drivers?
Edit: Forgot to say, I already reinstalled all drivers after the disk corruption.
Also get this error:
WLAN Extensibility Module has failed to start.
Module Path: C:\Windows\system32\athExt.dll
Error Code: 126
Really annoying to see, but it doesn't really seem to have any effect on my system. Don't know if that's enough information to go on, but I thought I'd run it by you guys.
fuck your oem. get the latest available drivers for the device
