View Full Version : g74sx. generating system health report ending with error message. help!

Hi everybody!

when I run a generate system health report I do get the following message:

"the wait for the report generation tool to finish has timed out"

this is the case since I got that notebook.

I investigated and just found out that by deactivating the service "Windows Management Instrumentation"

the health report works till the end. but this service is important so I should let it run.

does anyone heard of this bug? I think I can call it bug... ;)

is there a way to fix that?

thanks in advance for your help!!

well... google is done since long ago. but I didn't find anything relevant.

I thought it could have been something related to asus installation and that maybe someone would know about it in this site...

it seems not a lot of people know about this system health report...

but thanks anyway!

What have you done to date to resolve this issue?

I tried differents methods but none of them worked!

as I mentioned I have to disable the WMI services, run the report and when finished I activate again the service.

this is not efficient but I couldn't find any other solution to that and it doesn't seem people know much about such report...
