I accidentally erased the default settings in Power Options (in the Control Panel). Now, when I try to enter a power option and save it, I get the message, "revision levels are incompatible", and I cannot apply the setting.

If any know the names of the original default options originally available , and the settings of each, perhaps I could enter the values, save, and start from scratch? Or, what settings ARE compatible?

Hello spike404,

The following may be helpful -- first try the fix recommended under "Method 1":

"Power scheme options are unavailable on a Windows XP-based computer":

EDIT:

There is also the following article, which may apply to your situation:

"Error Message: Power Policy Manager Unable to Set Policy. Indicates Two Revision Levels Are Incompatible":

There is also a good read and fix here.
Click "download the code" and save the zipped .txt file to your drive. Unzip the .txt file and give it a .reg extension then import to your registry, done. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the rapid responses. I'll read over the suggestions, and I am sure I will be able to solve my problem.

I'll not do anything for a couple of days; giving me the time to fully understand the steps. I am quite an amateur in-re to computers.

Any other suggestions are still welcome.

Computers possess no logic!

I tried the fixes suggested. Two accomplished nothing, and the third was too complicated for me to attempt (I have very limited computer skills). Anyway, thanks so much for the help.

Using my limited knowledge, I thought, "I'll fool this instrument of Satan!" I went into Control Panel, User Accounts, and Add a User. I created another account, logged off, logged on using the new account, and the Power Options was there! Complete with the defaults! The Power Options now work fine in both my user accounts!

Strange, creating a new account, restored ALL the defaults.

As I said, computers have no logic.

:thumbsup:
