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.

Local Manageability Service. It's supposedly part of the chip platform and is meant to send and receive information for administrative applications for things like diagnostics and stuff. All it really does is generate critical errors. I don't think it's even really necessary.

Dammit. I had a feeling I would need to reinstall, but I really just don't want to buy the disk.

Guess I'll backup and let the computer keep running like this and see what happens.

dont buy a disk. just download one legitimately, and download a quick program to find your serial from the current install.

If you get an OEM disc (such as from Dell) you can use the sticker on the bottom of your computer.

Phone them, support is always surprisingly helpful.

I think I'll try calling tomorrow. I have to look for the box in my closet to see if I did get an OEM disc, although I don't recall having one. I'm just really down on support because most of them don't know anything about computers and it's a headache to get any real help.

I'm done with computer stuff for tonight.

Edit: Ok, so I can never really be done with these things. After tons of research, I found out this LMS is mostly concerned with remote administration. I'm going to disable it in msconfig and see what happens! :)

Edit again: Disabled it and that fixed all my issues with hanging at the Welcome screen, timeouts, critical errors, and increased overall speed.
