I am unable to change my Power Plan settings in W8.1. Does anybody have any idea what is going on and how to correct this issue?

Daniel, have you checked to make sure the services connected with RPC are running?

Open Services and look for any items associated with "Remote Procedure Call", make sure they are enabled.

Hii Jim
these are the only two services I have found pertaining to RPC. I have also ran the sfc /scannow and it reported some corrupted files that it couldn't fix. I couldn't make to much sense out of the CBS Log file.

Yep, that’s the usual two RPC services Daniel.

If sfc /scannow is reporting file corruptions, I suggest you run the following dism command in an elevated command prompt:

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

This will compare local files to an online image and, hopefully, repair the corruptions.

If the dism command reports that it has repaired corruptions, I suggest you reboot the computer and run sfc /scannow again to make sure.

Hi Jim
OK, I ran the Dism command and reran sfc /scannow and everthing was good. I finally found a link to the http://www.eightforums.com that had some info on this issue. All I had to to was download and run a Power Registry Key and this restored my Power Plan options. The RPC server was unavailable because their was no Power Plans to report. This is what I have when I run powercfg /LPower-Plans.PNGImage Enlarger

Okay Daniel, glad to hear all is now well. What I don't understand however, is how the registry items relating to power plans were missing, deleted or corrupted in the first place. Was this after a re-install or are you using some kind of registry cleaner?

I have no idea when or how this happened. I have checked the Power Schemes registry key in W10 and they both have the same GUID. I probably could have copied those keys to a usb stick and copied them into the W8.1 registry.
I guess you might say this was a registry issue but it is just misleading as for as the error code was saying.
Thanks for your help I have enjoyed playing detective with you. Daniel.
