The Intel(R) Management Engine Interface is a driver required on certain Intel based system. It is used, among other functions, to improve communication with the BIOS. No errors should appear with it.
You can try reinstalling it from this website:
Also, ensure that there are no unknown devices in the Device Manager.
Finally, please be aware that we've seen conflicts on the Intel(R) Management Engine Interface appear, when the user has changed the operating system that was installed originally with their systems.
Thanks for this. Several other uses (including myself) reported this in another thread with the same subject. I downloaded the version that said 188.8.131.522. I uninstalled the old version 184.108.40.2069 and installed 220.127.116.112. This seems to have fixed the problem, but in Control Panel / Programs and Features, it still says the version is 18.104.22.1689 !?
Any explanation for this? I have a Dell Inspiron 15R running Windows 7 x64.
Intel® ME driver provided above is meant for Intel® 5 Series Chipsets. Without knowing the specific hardware in your system we can only recommend the Intel® Driver Update Utility or getting the driver from your system manufacturer’s website.
In Device Manager, it says Intel 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset.
The Intel Driver Update utility shows:
Product Detected Intel® 6, 5, 4, 3, 900 Series Chipsets Current Version Installed 9.1.1 This version is valid.
The Intel Driver Update Utility doesn't seem to report on the MEI driver.
In Device Manager for the Intel MEI it says the driver version is 22.214.171.1249, even though I uninstalled and re-installed from
Since this has fixed my LMS Service warning message, my guess is that the version of the MEI driver has not changed since I bought my DELL Inspiron 15R laptop, but the MEI_ALLOS_126.96.36.1992_PV package contains another component (maybe the LMS service itself), that has been updated by Intel and corrects the problem.
