Several sites indicate it's a COMPAL power thing, possibly for fan management, and apparently driver is rough to find. If it's fan management, it's important in that laptops do not like getting hot, but I do hear the fan running.
Here comes the funny part - one of the links from Google took me right into MY OWN post from June
containing HJT log - sure enough, 2/3rds down the post was a process of that name
"Compal E-POWER Driver: System32\Drivers\hkdrv.sys (manual start)"
1. How did I lose it overnight with computer that was shut down and was fine?
2. Where to I find this driver?
3. How do I install it, where, when?
4. Please give me a step-by-step for dummies, I've got to get it working tonight.
I looked in Toshiba site, found nothing.
Computer is Toshiba laptop Satelite A75S226.
