Lenovo Ideapad 710S - Latest Realtek Audio Driver ...

Question: Lenovo Ideapad 710S - Latest Realtek Audio Driver ...

Today, I updated my Realtek Audio Driver to version 6.0.1.7831 (dated 7/21/2016). After installation, I immediately realized that the taskbar icon changed from Dolby to Realtek default icon:? -> ? Next, I went to Programs and Features and found out that "Dolby Audio X2 Windows APP" disappeared from the list. Originally, both of these Dolby programs came with the laptop:? After the update, I was only left with this:? The impact of this is that I can no longer toggle the different sound features provided by the Dolby App. I contacted Lenovo via online chat support but the personnel insists Dolby is not a supported program by Lenovo without giving me a valid solution or answer. Did Lenovo omit Dolby App in the latest Audio Driver by mistake? Or did Lenovo intentionally removed it due to the vulnerability explained here: "Dolby Audio X2 (DAX2) privilege escalation" https://support.lenovo.com/sg/en/product_security/len_4884#/IdeaPad. If anybody is facing the same issue / has any solutions / answers, kindly leave a comment below. Thank you.

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Ideapad 710S - Latest Realtek Audio Driver ...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Lenovo Ideapad 710S's ACPI driver just got updated on 14 Sep 2016. However, I can't get it to install. Its installer closes immediately upon launch, similar to the cases here: Lenovo G580 Windows 10 ACPI Driver not installing and Y500 ACPI driver not installing. ACPI driver: Laptops-and-netbooks :: 700-Series :: 710S-13isk - Lenovo Support (SG) -Advanced Configuration and Power Management Interface (ACPI) Driver for Windows 10 (32-bit, 64-bit) ... Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I installed the Realtek HD audio driver from the ASUS download site (P8Z68-V Pro MB) and all was well until I installed an MSI 560TI video card and let it install the Nvidia HD Audio drivers. The problem I have been chasing ever since was the Realtek HD Audio Manager popping up after the system exited extended sleep state (overnight). After much trial and tribulation and several Google Searches I concluded that the Realtek/ASUS HD Audio driver was conflicting with the Nvidia driver(s).

I did what suggested on one of the sites and that was to delete the Realtek HD Audio drivers and just let W7 install the default Microsoft drivers. Problem gone! Now I am curious, what did I give up and if I install the latest Realtek driver for W7 64-bit (v267) from the Realtek site will the Nvidia conflict return?

Answer:ASUS/Realtek, Latest Realtek versus default W7 Audio driver

Generally the Microsoft installed HD Audio Codec does not have all the features the motherboard vendor's sound drivers do. In most cases the actual driver is preferred and should be installed instead of the generic HD Audio Code drivers.

The NVIDIA driver is for the Video and the build in audio for HDMI audio. It should not be interferring with the PC's sound and in this case Realtek. I would uninstall the Microsoft drivers and reinstall the RealTek and see if you still have the problem. Generally a driver causes problems when exiting from sleep mode. Actually on "extended" sleep mode of overnight its really better to just shut down the system and then reboot in the morning. If you want it to be operational when you wake up, the BIOS should have an option for auto power on at whatever time you set.

I am totally disappointed in Lenovo's customer support. My lenovo 710s was bought less than 1 year ago (as of 10/6/2017, when I sent it in for repairs) and had 2 years warranty (1+1 year of extended warranty). I sent my laptop for repair due to a white spot issue on the monitor, affecting viewing of webpages and videos. However, the laptop was returned after 3 weeks without any fixes/repairs, as Lenovo claimed that it was a cosmetic issue. I wrote a message on their customer care website on 3/7/2017. However, they ignored me and there was no reply to date.  I thought Lenovo is a reliable and popular brand. However, it turned out to be a horrible decision, much to my dismay!

Dear Lenovo Community, I've just bought my Lenovo Ideapad 710S two days ago. Bought the highest-end configuration with 16GB RAM + 512GB PCIE SSD. I got to say I'm absolutely in love with the form factor and its performance. I decided upon this laptop mainly because of its portability and the combination of 16GB RAM + 512GB SSD at less than $2k. DesignAt 1.1kg, it is really light - I can hold in up effortlessly with one arm. At home, I use a Dell monitor (U2715H) which is almost borderless; looking at 710S's edge, it is equally slim and is key to making it look stylish. The matte screen display has very crisp, clear text and is very comfortable to look at. PerformancePerformance wise, there is no complain. It lives up to what it's spec-ed on paper. Every application and operation (e.g. startup, shutdown, boot from sleep) loads at breakneck speeds thanks to its PCIE SSD. I've yet to try running more intensive software e.g. the Adobe suite but at this rate, it looks promising thus far. AccuType KeyboardAt first, I thought the flat keys have really little travel to bottom-out but as I spend more time typing on it, I gradually grew to like the keyboard.

Hi there, Frevans                       -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Just to verify, did you encounter this issue the first time you setup the PC or you just encountered this lately?
 
If it's just lately, can you try one of the following?
 
Disable "hide pointer while typing" under Control Panel (large icon view) > Mouse > Pointer Options Tab and enable "Show location of pointer when i press CTRL key"
  - Link to picture
 
Uninstall the Touchpad Driver (ELAN or Synaptics) under Control Panel > Programs and reboot. Upon logging back in, Windows will use a generic touchpad driver. Try to observe the mouse pointer behavior and observe (you can always re-install the touchpad driver by navigating to D:\Drivers\Touchpad or by downloading the driver from the lenovo website).
 
Boot in Safe Mode with Networkingand observe the mouse pointer behavior. If all goes well, perform a clean boot and observe. If same problem, perform a System Restorein safe mode to undo any possible updates that was installed on the system (ensure that you make a backup copy of your files).
 
Update us how it goes.

Hi, I have been having some problems with my realtek audio drivers. Every so often all my audio will randomly switch to  the Realtek Digital Output and there is no way to change it back. It wil randomly switch back. I tried disabling the Realtek Digital Output all together but then what happens is I will lose all my sound randomly again and this time when I click my sound it doesn't show any sound playing(there is no green bar to indicate sound playing)even though I know im playing stuff and that sound is playing and there is no way to fix it but trying to restart or waiting it out. I have tried reinstalling the audio drivers 2 times already. For now as a temporary fix I rolled-back my audio drivers to an older version. I would be ok with this but now some things don't work like my Dolby Home Theater. Is there any way to fix this problem so that when I update back to the Realtek Audio Drivers the audio doesn't switch to the Digital Output or so that any other problem I stated doesn't occur. Thank You!

Answer:Lenovo Y580 Realtek Audio Driver issues

Hi SPOTFIR3,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that the audio is switching automatically to ?Realtek Digital Output? and the normal audio is not working as expected even after installing the latest drivers, performing System Restore should resolve the issue. If the issue persists even after performing System Restore performing OKR (One Key Recovery) should resolve the issue in the computer, Click here to download the User guide and the steps to perform OKR is in page no. 26.
 
NOTE: Please backup the data before performing OKR as the computer will be re-installed to its factory settings.
 
Hope this helps!!!
 
Do post us back if the issue still persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

It took me 14 months to restore Stereo Mix as each time I was told to update audio drivers I would update HD Audio Manager so what is the difference between these two Realtek ?

Realtek HD Audio Manager is a software driver used on Windows computers. It handles recording and playback of audio programs. It is required for many audio programs to operate.

While Realtek HD Audio Drivers is a tool that allows you to listen to audio in HD on your PC.

Stereo Mix is used to transfer audio that the PC is playing to recording software such as Audacity, so that you can record what you?re hearing.

When one upgrade their OS like in your case from XP to Win7 with the same motherboard and sound card it is always advised & recommended to download the latest soundcard driver, because the only thing that had changed was the operating system.

The advice is not to go to windows for it, but to go to the motherboard manufacturer, because it would be specialised for the system rather than ... Read more

Though I've updated my graphics card's driver a few times, I've yet to do the same for my sound card. I'm having trouble with a game I just bought and this is a last resort measure.I've downloaded what I believe to be the correct driver, even though it's about nine times the size of the one currently listed in the Add/Remove progs. for the AC97! Now, what's the procedure for this? Do I overwrite or remove the old one first? Is this update even likely to make much difference or do you think it's unnecessary (I haven't had many problems with previous games)?

Answer:Installing the latest driver for a Realtek AC97

I have no idea if updating the driver will solve your problem, but its unlikely for it to cause any problems, partically if the driver is a few months old (i suppose very new ones could be buggy). I'm not sure what type of file the driver has come in. If its an executable file then I would imagine you just have to run it and it'll do the rest. If its just a driver files then just update it in Device Manager.

Hey there.

I've looked almost everywhere and I couldn't find my exact problem. Well, technically I did but there wasn't a solution anywhere, so I decided to go ahead and ask myself.

Now, I installed Windows 7 (32 bit) on my computer the other day, and I've been driver hunting since then. Looking for video card drivers, printer drivers, it's a real nightmare. Though I can say I've pretty much managed with everything, except with this.

I downloaded the latest Realtek HD audio driver for Windows 7 twice, from different sources. I also downloaded a bunch of codecs (made for Windows 7 as well) but what really bothers me is that the sound quality is horrifying.

I used to have XP on my system until last week with the appropriate Realtek audio driver and the sound was awesome. The equalizers available really did the trick.

Now, however, the sound is so freaking bad, even Winamp's equalizer can't make my music sound as good as it did. The treble is raspy, there's hardly any bass. I've tried all the available settings in the Realtek Control Center (or whatever it's called) to no avail. All the additional equalizing and adjusting of the environment make it sound even worse. =/

If anyone can help me out, I would appreciate it so much.

Hi, hooising, and welcome to the forums.

First off, your picture is very very large, but the actual relevant part is tiny, too tiny in fact to see well. Follow How to Use the Snipping Tool in Vista to use the snipping tool correctly to make image posting a lot easier and a lot more readable.

According to the picture, it looks like you have made the digital TOSLINK as the default - change that.

And as for memory, well, Vista *does* have a virtual memory system in place....so, usually, no, and especially not before giving you multiple warnings about being low on memory. However, if one of your memory DIMMs fails while in use it could very well lead to a BSOD and a reboot....

Hello I am not great with computers especially deep things so please explain slowly.

I have a toshiba satelite A500 computer with realtek audio drivers installed
the sound is working fine three years later after I got the computer
my computer had a problem with the fan so my computer keeps overheating
changed the fan but after shutting down and turning it on the sound has a red X next to it troubleshooter is useless because it could not find the problem

(what is displayed in device manager.)

Realtek High Definition Audio with an exclamation point it keeps saying this device cannot be started. code 10.
how do you fix this thing without restoring?

things I tried
-Going to realtek website to download drivers it works but then it would be X again when I do a reboot then it does the code 10 thing
-Installing the drivers in safe mode does the code 10 thing too
-Restoring to an earlier time before the fan problem started
still no sound

so I guess the fan product is to blame...
If you know a thread with this problem but has been fixed please tell me
the link
 

Answer:Realtek high definition audio driver no audio output device is installed

Hi

Could you let us know the exact Toshiba A500 you have as there are various models that have various hardware and software drivers?

eg. A500-17X

as its likely that you may need to re-install the Chipset driver and reboot then the audio driver and from Toshiba's website driver support area only, not a unified driver from realtek as at times OEMs like Toshiba will custom spec hardware and drivers from realtek and while it may state in your device manager or specs that a realtek hardware is for audio, it will not be a consumer one.

The fan you changed was which one? (CPU or case)
What Windows version and Service Pack are you using and are they fully upto date?

Hello, I just updated the Realtek Audio Driver this morning when I saw the update available in the Update center.  The driver went from v 6.0.1.6914 to v 6.0.1.7040.  Now, the Dolby Advanced Audio v2 won't work.  It forgot my previous EQ settings and when I make a new one, it doesn't change a thing in the sound.  Is there a way to roll back to the previous version?  Anyone knows a fix for this? This is really bad as I'm listening to lots of music on this laptop while I'm working and without the Dolby EQ, the sounds is not very good... I'm under Windows 8.1 64-bit. Thanks.













Solved!

Answer:X230T Dolby Advanced Audio v2 not working anymore since Realtek Audio Driver update

OK, so I succeeded to revert back to the previous version of the Realtek audio driver and the Dolby thing came back just fine after a reboot. So, if you're with Windows 8.1 and enjoy the Dolby feature, don't update your Realtek audio driver!

Hope you can help me here

I have installed Windows 10 today. So far so good, except for the sound volume being REALLY low. It appears that it is a problem with Realtek HD audio driver, so I manually downloaded it, but still the sound is very low. The audio manager, which is the mixer and volume control hub, appears in the startup programs on the task manager, but it isn't available on the desktop bottom corner, as if it's installed but cannot be used...

Thing is, on Windows 7 everything worked without any problem at all. It is really annoying that after whole this time Windows 10 still has this kind of problems...

Any solution?

TIA

I have recently upgraded from a 32 bit processor and mobo to a 64 bit one, and reinstalled Windows XP media center edition, I have tried everything except the regedit option to get my audio driver to install properly. can someone please give me more information on this method as I believe it is my last option. here is my information.

Operating System Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 5.1.2600 (WinXP Retail)
Date 2008-01-11
Time 05:39
--------[ Summary ]-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Computer:
Operating System Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition
OS Service Pack Service Pack 2
DirectX 4.09.00.0904 (DirectX 9.0c)

Motherboard:

CPU Type AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane 2.6GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Black Edition Processor

Motherboard Name

GIGABYTE GIGABYTE GA-M61P-S3 AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 ATX AMD Motherboard

kept same hard drive, which is why I think I am having problems with my new mobo and no audio, I think the driver for the old audio is deeply rooted in the HDD somewhere and it won't let me install any new audio drivers. The old system I had was a Gateway, with a P4 3.0 HT, hope this helps anyone.
 

Answer:No Audio, Install realtek hd audio driver failure

OK, by everything you mean you have tried all this:
Checked Master Volume control.
Checked Windows Audio Service is started.
Checked Device Manager for bad drivers.
Checked your audio mixer software (if installed) for a setting that mutes back panel audio if you have plugged headphones into a front panel audio jack.
.....Uncheck this setting to allow audio to both the back and front.
Checked BIOS to insure on-board sound is enabled.
Installed the correct Chipset and Audio drivers.
None of that worked?

Have you tried this?
The Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio driver for Windows may be corrupted or causing problems with the audio driver installation.
To resolve this, try the following:
1. Click Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.
2. Look for the following two items: Realtek High Definition Audio Driver and High Definition Audio driver Package - KB888111.
3. If these items are listed in Add/Remove programs, remove them.
4. Restart Windows.
5. Download the latest audio driver for your PC.
6. Double-click the filename to extract the files.
7. Go to the folder where the files have been extracted and browse to the \HDAQFE\xpsp2\us\ folder or the \MSHDQFE\Win2K_XP\us\ folder. (The name of this folder depends on your PC model.)
8. Double-click the file kb888111xpsp2.exe to install the High Definition Audio Driver Package.
9. Restart Windows.
10. Install the audio driver.

Hi.About half a year ago, I bought the Lenovo ideapad 720S-14IKB. Since day 1, I noticed this problem where the mouse becomes invincible for a few seconds after I open a new tab in the webbrowser or start a new program. Here is a video of it: https://i.imgur.com/FSR05gs.mp4 Futhermore, after installing the latest BIOS update (4VCN41WW), the laptop has started to freeze for a couple of seconds on me every once in a while.  Are these, things that can be fixed by myself? Or should i talk to the store where i bought it about sending it to repair? I live in Denmark, so I have 2 years warrenty.

Hi, I am having some issues with the wireless connection. I first tried to install the win7 Realtek WLAN Driver, the version that's on the site (Liteon_11.0.0.612 Broadcom_7.12.26.27 Realtek_2023.19.831.2015), but I get a "No Matched Wireless Device In This System" message.I installed the Intel WLAN Driver and was able to connect to the wifi but I'm not able to access the router's page on 192.168.1.1. Also when I try to access a radio stream, it takes about 10 minutes to load it and it stops playing after another 10 minutes (as if it had buffered/downloaded those 10 mins). I have another pc connected to the same network and both of these things work just fine, so it seems to be an issue only with this pc.Other than this, the web pages seem to work ok as well, no loading issues. So a couple of questions:1. Should those 2 wlan drivers (intel and realtek) be both installed or on the contrary, just one?2. If I should install the realtek driver (even if just for testing) can somenone point me to a version that works with this system?3. Could those 2 issues above be related to drivers or something else that needs installed? So far I have installed chipset, wlan, lan drivers and in the devce manager I have no unknown devices.I tried ipconfigs, pings, tracerts but didn't see anything suspicious and nothing fixed this. Could a vpn client installed on another computer that's connected through a cable to the same network influence the router? I installed one years ago and I re... Read more

Hi - the current version of the ideapad 710s BIOS does not allow changing of the SATA/drive mode from RAID to AHCI. As a result, it is pretty much impossible to install Linux onto these systems. I've tried multiple combinations of things - completely wiped the drive, disabled UEFI, Secure Boot and enabled Legacy mode, etc - and nothing works.  The currently locked SATA mode basically prevents Linux from even seeing the SSD.  I've tried the latest versions of Ubuntu and Gentoo - both with the same result. Is there any reason why this setting is not exposed?  Are there any plans to expose it?

Less than a month ago I bought a brand new Lenovo Ideapad 710s, today it suddenly turned off even though it's battery was at 64%. I then plugged in the charger and tried turning it on - nothing happened. Then I held down the power button at it turned on. Only to turn off again after about 15 minutes.Now, it won't turn on at all.If I hold down the power button, the light behind the keyboard blinks, but the screen stays black. When I plug in the charger, the light that shows it is charging is on, so the charger is working.I just can't turn on my computer at all. I don't know if this information is needed, but I have used it almost every day, around 6 hours every day I've used it (I'm using it for school only). The only things installed on the computer was Office 365 and a driver so that I could use my printer.Any idea how to get it working again?

(Before I begin, yes I did read other people's threads based on problems similiar to mine but it did not help.)

I have an Intel Desktop Motherboard DQ35JO and have gone to the official Intel website to download and install the updated BIOS and drivers needed for my motherboard. My OS is XP Professional Service Pack 3.

Every driver installs fine except the High Def Audio Realtek driver. I've done so many things and I still cannot get the the problem fixed. Not to mention, my Device Manager keeps popping up telling me that it cannot find nor install the "PCI Driver" hardware.

Can anyone help? I've done so much and I still have no sound and no sound driver. Odd thing is, sound worked really fine before on another hard drive of mine that had XP Professional Service Pack 3 installed (which has gone to crap because certain startup files were missing (vgaoem.something)). But on this new hard drive that I recently bought AND installed XP Professional Service Pack 3 on, the sound driver is not installing or updating correctly.
 

Answer:PCI Driver/Realtek Audio Driver problem

Never mind.

The information in this thread helped me out. It didnt work the first time around, but I tried it out another time and it worked completely.

Thank you musksnipe.

Hi

Windows 10, integrated audio chipset on Realtek ALC887 motherboard.

Do you think there may be qualitative differences in sound output between using generic Windows drivers compared to specific Realtek?
At the time. With fresh installation windows, audio has been recognized and configured with generic drivers and works perfectly.

If there are no valid reasons to install the entire Realtek package, I would avoid it to install additional "no needed" software.

Thank you.
