run system file checker;

from elevated command prompt - type - SFC /SCANNOW - then hit enter and let it scan then when its done restart computer try again.

let us know how you get on.

also go to Start>Run and type powercfg.cpl that also will open power control panel. see if that way works too.

Hi sandokan - Welcome to w7forums


OK, I just went through the stages:
  • It would seem that the folder must exist before the file will be written.
  • Secondly the slash before the C:\ needs to be removed.

Example:
powercfg -energy -output C:\Users\Public\Downloads\Energy_Report.html

powercfg -energy -output \C:\Users\User\Downloads\Energy_Report.html
First off does the folder c:\Users\User\Downloads exist? as I doubt the folders & subfolders will be created on the fly.
Second is \C:\ a typo? as there should be no \ in front
Third, are you an administrator? try running this in an elevated command prompt

Try something simpler like:
powercfg -energy -output C:\ER.html
then look for it in the root directory.
