Preferred Solution: Dolby Audio Error after upgrading to Windows 10 (Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430)

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.)

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430 3254 T1Q - Need suitable wifi driver

Hey there thiyagarajaner,
 
I believe you are using the ThinkPad 11b/g/n 1x1 WiFi card. Have you tried using the System Update Tool? This typically will instal the drivers that match your system. Hope this helps.
 
 
As an alternative there is also this driver, that may work in the even that the one from Broadcom does not.

I bought a Sony SRS-X7 Blutooth speaker to get rid of the cables.The device works perfectly with several other devices: iphone, blackberry, an Asus tablet, but i havn't been able to make it work with my laptop.I was able to add the device. Was founded and recogniced by the laptop, but when almost finishing the process appears a message "Configuring bluetooth services" and stays there. I've tried to wait, even from one day to another, and the message remains there.After forcing to close this message window, the speakers figure between the bluetooth devices, but when trying to connect an "error establishing connection" message appears.I've tried to install the other driver available on the support site (an intel, this one is a Broadcom) with no results.Appreciate your help, as i'm seriusly thinking (don't want to) on replace the laptop. Best regards.

I purchased an E430 in September with Windows 7 and upgraded to Windows 8 on November 24. I get a message on start up "Unable to start Dolby audio driver. Please restart or reinstall the driver if problem persists."  I have attempted to reinstall the latest driver from the lenovo website (g3an05ww.exe), but I get a message "Another version is already installed. To remove existing version, use Add/Remove programs from the control panel."  So I go to add/remove programs to remove Dolby audio, but there is no Dolby audio program. The audio still works, by the way, it's just that I get the "unable to start Dolby audio driver..." message every time on start up.

I've had this Thinkpad Edge E430 since 2012 and have loved it, but recently I've been having a problem with it. In order to start it up I have to start it at least twice, and now it seems that the AC adapter must be plugged in for it to start.What will happen the first time or when it's just running on the battery is that the red indicator light will turn on, and I will hear the fan and the harddrive start up, but the screen will remain black and the computer will not respond to anything. When I have it plugged in and try the second time, it will start up no problem, and there doesn't seem to be any response issues once the laptop is up and running. I thought it might be a battery problem, but it has the same start up issues when I took out the batter and just had the AC adapter plugged in. Any ideas what this might be?

I owne a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E545. I came running Windows 7. It caught a virus and became unusable. The box came with Windows 8 Pro (but not Windows 7, for some reason). So I did a clean install. But now, the comptuer has no Wifi! It only looks for a hardwired ethernet cord. It's like Windows 8 Pro doesn't know this laptop has a wireless for internet connectivity! I have exhausted my patience and it has been a very frustrating experience. I would really appreciate some sage advice from more technically adept folks on how to solve this problem. Thank you!!!!

Answer:No Wifi since upgrading to Windows 8 on Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E545

Hello and welcome,
 
I'd install and run ThinkVantage System Update and let it install the appropriate Lenovo drivers for your machine.  See if that fixes things.

Hi everyone,About a year and a half ago I bought a ThinkPad Edge E430 and its been working fine, until last week when I got a terrible virus which really corrupted my computer. I've managed to remove the malware, but as a result the registry is still damaged. I cannot change folder options, my start menu is blank, all my files have been moved to a TEMP file among all these other issues. I've run multiple malware scanners and registry repair programs but these issues aren't resolving. So I'm thinking that I'll need to just reinstall windows 7, to completely repair the registry and ensure everything is back to normal. I've backed up all my files, but my concern is about the reinstallation itself.How could I do this when Windows 7 came preloaded onto the laptop, so I don't have the installation disk.And would the product key for windows 7 (found under the battery) definitely work a second time around?

Answer:Windows 7 reinstallation - ThinkPad Edge E430

Hi Cosmos29,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
We understood that your query is about reinstalling the Windows 7 OS on ThinkPad Edge E430.
When your computer is working normally, press the blue ThinkVantage button to launch the SimpleTap Program (for Windows 7) or the ThinkVantage Productivity Center program (for Windows XP and WindowsVista).
 
Note:
Depending on the date when your computer was manufactured, your computer might have the
Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox program preinstalled instead of the Simple Tap program or the ThinkVantage Productivity Centre program.
 
You also can use the ThinkVantage button to interrupt the start-up sequence of your computer and start the Rescue and Recovery workspace, which runs independently of the Windows operating system and is hidden from it. If the Windows operating system is not running properly, the Rescue and Recovery workspace can help you do the following:
 
? Get the current system information.
? Rescue a file from your Windows environment or restore back-up files, provided you have made backups
by use of the Rescue and Recovery program.
? Configure your computer or start the ThinkPad Setup.
To access the Rescue and Recovery workspace, turn on the computer; then, while the ?To interrupt normal start-up, press the blue ThinkVantage button? message is displayed at the lower-left of the screen, press the ThinkVantage button. The Rescue and Recovery screen opens. For additional information, see ?Us... Read more

Hi, I recently bought some Thinkpad EDGE E430 and E530 for my company. But one of them, at the first boot, instead of showing the first time Windows setup wizard it booted to Windows login with an already defined user named 'obe' and it ask for a password. I can't enter to Windows. I have tried to make 'factory settings' for resintalling Windows but the System Recovery Options always ask me for the password of 'obe' user. I called Lenovo support and the agent told me to use another E430 to produce a recovery DVD, so I made it (because I bought more E430 in the same order), but is the same, always asking for the password. Please see the picture. I need to give the laptop to one of my employees, he is goint to travel this next weekend and he need to take this laptop to the trip. 

Answer:New Thinkpad Edge E430 came with a Windows user and cannot login (who is 'obe' ???)

welcome to the community. press F1 when the first splash screen appears to get into bios. make sure that the cd/dvd drive is listed first in the boot order (or usb cd/dvd, if your machine doesn't have an internal). then put the recovery dvd in the drive and reboot the machine. it should load the recovery process from the dvd, rather than any hdd partition, and allow you to recover/reimage the machine. please post back if this doesn't work or if you have further ?s. cheers.

Problem:  In Windows 7 x64, sound quality is tinny and sounds very badly DSPed when Dolby Advanced Audio is activated.  Even setting all effects off and EQ off the sound is bad simply because Dolby is/was turned on.  Going to Sound > Playback > Speakers > Properties > Enhancements, checking Disable All Enhancements and clicking Apply clears up the sound, but then the EQ won't have any effect. Solution:  If you have Win 7 x64, uninstall the Win 7 driver (h0a114ww.exe) and instead install the Windows 8 driver (h0ac10ww.exe).  Note that this is NOT the Win 8.1 driver - that won't install under Win 7.  The sound quality will be way better when you use Dobly EQ and effects.  So far I haven't had any stability problems. I thought my E430 had the worst sound card ever until I upgraded to Windows 8 and installed the new driver.  I have Windows 7 dual booted and found the sound quality in Win 7 terrible so I played around with it and found the above solution.

Hi,    i just bought a laptop Lenovo T530 which came with Dolby Advanced Audio v2 with Realtek audio drivers. When i turned it on, the sound was pretty bad as there were no preset equalizer profiles, I however had the options for Games, Movies, Music but those settings were all kept to normal. I'm no audio expert, so i couldnt create new profiles and set the equalizer settings myself because even when i tried, the sound did'nt help much. So i got to know that Dolby Home Theatre v4 has lot of options and even some preset equalizer settings too. Now my question is how to upgrade from Dolby AA v3 to Dolby HT v4. I downloaded the realtelk audio drivers from lenovo support site, uninstalled my realtek audio driver and dolby AAC, deleted the Dolby folder in the registry. I then installed the downloaded Realtek audio driver for my model and again the Dolby AAC was back , I uninstalled Dolby AAC and tried to install the Dolby HT v4.msi which i found in the PCEE folder of the installation. But i get an error when running the installation that Dolby HT cannot be installed. Any idea on how to solve this?

Hi, I would like to buy a Lenovo Thinkpad. There are pretty good offers at the Outlet. I am not sure about the model that I should get. I am deciding between the L430 and the E430. While I have a preference for the L430, I have some concerns/questions: Regardless of the model choice, will a 14inch screen be enough for school and other stuff like watching movies?What are the advantages of the E430? Some models are priced higher than the L430. Background:I currently have a 15.6inch laptop. I think I want a smaller one as I need to carry my computer to school. The 15.6 inch is pretty heavy. However, I am very used to that format and a bit scared that a 14inch might be too small. E.g. if I work with Excel, Word, or Outlook. Although the L430 seems to be the more robust computer with the better specifications as compared to the E430, the L430 looks a bit old and it might not be as good as e.g. for watching movies. I want to use my computer both for school and free time. Thanks for your help! Yellow Squash

My laptop thinkpad Edge e430 is not powering up. When I plug in the AC cord the LED indicator does not turn on. I have checked the AC adapter with the multimeter and it gives 20 volt output. So the AC adapter is fine.  The laptop also does not power on with a fully charged batter. I have removed the HDD, Memory, Optical drive and the CMOS battery and then pressed the power button for 30 seconds. The laptop does not wake up.  It is quite weird as the laptop should show some kind of error So i may have an idea what is happening.  Discussing with people on other forums gives me an idea that the power setup of the laptop is faulty.

Hi,I am looking to buy a lenovo laptop with the intention of using it mostly for word/excel applications, internet browsing and skype, and basic multimedia tasks (online video streaming, movies). The laptop's emissions (noise/heat) are key for me and by looking online, the E335 version seemed to be praised for its very low emissions and its low price.The only drawback is that it has the AMD E2 2000 processor, which performs much lower than its intel i3 counterparts.I wanted to check for your experience with the emissions of the E335, and whether the weaker processor would play a role in the performance of the laptop for the basic tasks intended.Also, I wanted to ask whether choosing the E430 version with intel i3 and would result in any drawbacks in terms of emissions.Thanks!loukianos

Answer:Choice between ThinkPad Edge E335 and E430

Hello. This is all a matter of budget and taste, plain and simple. In my experience, the AMD mobile APU's simply aren'ton par with the performance of the Core-i processors, and even when running the same clock speed as theirIntel counterparts, they run hotter, sometimes much hotter. They are a budget option though, and as such I guessthey will do their job adequately. Here is a comparison for the AMD E2-2000 vs the Intel i3-3110M Ivy Bridge. AMD E2-2000 vs Intel Core i3-3110M The difference is vast when it comes to available features and performance, but the AMD uses much less power,but that will be very apparent in its performance and will be a huge factor in how long the machine will last for youbefore you need to update it. My 2 cents is always go with the Intel Core-i option. They are very energy efficient, specially since the Ivy Bridgearchitecture was introduced, and the smallest i3's really are a powerful option for a day-to-day machine. And themachines that come with them aren't so much more expensive than the AMD powered machines. Lastly, have you checked out the new E440 models? The Haswell line of Intel CPU's is much more energy efficientthan the earlier Ivy Bridge models. ThinkPad E440 Laptop Cheers!

Hello everybody, this is my first post here as I just bought an Edge e430 from Lenovo.It came with Win 8 installed (let's skip this) and as I tried to connect to the LAN for verifying the license I realized that I did not have any network connection. No way to connect, no matter what I clicked and what I switched on/off.... no connection (even the local one). As I am a Linux user, after figuring out how to boot from CD I tried Linux on a Live CD to see whether it was a Win 8 issue or a card one. No connection there too. Trying to set up here and there I think I grasped the problem, however I does not make any sense to me. Is it possible that the new model is IPv6 only (with no IPv4 retrocompatibility). If this is the case (I repeat: it doesn't make sense) what should I do to make it working, at least in Win 8? Thank you very much for your time. P.S. Forgot to say that I don't have any WiFi to try.

But to my sadness, 8.1 has ruined my expectations, and Lenovo didn't even care to address the user issues in 8.1Here are my Issues :  OneKey Recovery : Updated to 8.xx.xx.xxxxThe OneKey Recovery app tells that 'Current system cannot create a backup'I can't have a secure laptop without it creating the Recovery !!Lenovo, please address this issue and fix the OneKey Recovery Problem !!Dolby audio app : Doesn't open, and if once it starts, cannot configure the Equalizer !

Hello to all, new one here to the forum. Well, title says it all... At first I think it was a problem with the way Linux suspends the machine, but now I realize it happens too when I suspend from Windows (I have dual boot with Windows 7 and Linux Mint 17 actually). It started making it sometimes, not always, but now always happens: I suspend, close the lid and put the notebook on my bag. Hours or even minutes later, when I want to use it again and open the lid, its shuts off right at that very moment. If I suspend and 2 minutes later resume with the notebook still on the table, everything goes fine... so I suspect it may be a time thing or bad contact with the battery, but really don't know. I'm reticent to bring it to tech service because of several reasons, so I want to share this and hope to hear if someone had the same problem and how fixed it, if it can be fixed. Oh, and sorry for my perhaps strange english, I'm argentinian.

What is the benefit of a 16 GB Micro Solid State Drive, Serial ATA3 besides the regular HD..?

Answer:ThinkPad Edge E430 with Micro Hard Drive..?

the 16 gigs mSATA will be used as a large cache for the regular HD, much like what Intel Turbo memory was, but it will have better algorithms applied to predict usage pattern.

Hi, I recently bought a 300Mbps Wireless N Router (TP-Link TL-WR841ND), but I only get 72 Mbps speed on my Thinkpad E430 laptop. As far as I read, the 1x1 11b/g/n Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter only supports speeds up to 150 Mbps (which would still be ok with me), but instead I get 72 Mbps. I tried to tweak the adapter and router settings, but I had no luck. Do I need to change the Wireless adapter? Is it possible to change it, or should I use an external USB Wireless adapter instead? Thank you!  

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E430 Wireless speed only 72Mbps

Hi Tudorc,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I would suggest you to check if any other similar device is able to achieve better speeds.
 
Log to the router's configuration utility by typing its IP address into a browser and change the encryption settings to WPA2 Encryption Only. Choose 40MHz-wide channels in the router?s configuration utility.
 
Since you are using a 1x1 single-stream card, so a max of 150Mbps is theoretically said to achieve. In addition, you are only on the 2.4GHz band, which is often congested, so you may see lower speeds. The disparity between theoretical and practical Wi-Fi performance comes from network protocol overhead, radio interference, physical obstructions on the line of sight between devices, and distance between devices. Under ideal conditions, actual results for a wireless adapter rated at 150Mbps is perhaps in the range of 50-80Mbps.
 
Hope this provided enough clarity for your query!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

2. Open Control Panel Uninstall a program and highlight the dolby component and an Uninstall button will appear.
             
 
3. Open your C: drive and Delete any folder that says drivers if non then continue with the next step

 
4. Download this Driver for installation
        Conexant Audio Driver  
Install it and continue
 
5. Open Drive C: now and you should have the Drivers folder back.
      Open that, Open Connexant Open Dolby Gui,  then you should have Dolbyaa for Advanced audio.

I read through the manual and am confident that I can take apart the machine, replace the cracked screen and put it back together. I replaced hinges in my old HP and a motherboard in my friends HP. My father was able to get me a great deal on this machine I have now. I put in some extra ram and a 32gb SSD for RapidBoot and I'm pretty much in love. I take great care of it but had an accident and dropped/cracked the screen. 
 
The laptop was ordered custom so its a bit more of a challenge to find specific information on what the part #'s are. The laptop has working microphones but was not purchased with a webcam which I regret. I would like to replace the LCD panel and install an integrated camera in one fell swoop. 
 
My questions are: What model number of LCD panel so I need. What model number of camera do I need. And lastly, will I need to purchase a new LCD cable that has the ability to plug into the camera? Or does my current LCD cable have a lone male cable plug waiting for a camera?

Hi iyyappan_3,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
First make sure that the Audio driver and the dolby will be in sync.
Open Device Manager 
    Uninstall the Audio Device Under Sound and gaming controllers / Make sure to place a check in the Delete driver software prompt.
           
Now make sure you don't have any dolby components
    Proceed to Control Panel / Programs / Uninstall a Program
                     Uninstall all Dolby Related programs
                             Restart if Prompted
Now install this software driver
 
https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/au200w81.exe
When you install this software it will show you a directory path whre it will extract, Make sure to Remember the path
 
This next xtep is important

Open the directory path where the Audio driver installer extracted the Audio driver.

Check all the folders inside it and find the Dolby Installers, Install the Dolby either Advanced audio or Digital plus.
 
and you should now get your dolby back

Hello All, I cannot seem to get the Dolby Home Theater v4 software to work correctly. I understand that the software is bundled with the Conexant HD audio driver and I downloaded 0zau06ww.exe. When I play audio I should see the spectral analyzer respond to any audio stream, but it doesn't do that anymore. Turning Dolby on or off has no effect on the sound playing.  I've made sure nothing is preventing Dolby from running by going into Sound and making sure that the Enhancements box is unchecked. Did a clean install as suggested, still nothing. The GUI comes up, the faders slide up and down on the equalizer, but there is no change in sound. What gives? Smart Audio also came bundled with the driver, I know there's a Windows 8 version that includes this.  Not sure why Lenovo either doesn't show the older software anymore, or at least have a link to archived files. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. System: Lenovo P580OS: Win 7 Premium/64 This is what Speccy reports for my audio: High Definition Audio Device - Use to show Conexant, I suspect a recent Windows update wiped that out.NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM) - No idea where this came fromBluetooth Hands-free AudioIntel Display Audio - Not sure what this is, never seen that beforeBluetooth Audio Device Playback DevicesHeadphones (High Definition Audio Device) (default) - Use to show Conexant here as wellSpeakers (High Definition Audio Device)Recordin...

Hey i have just updated my windows 7 until windows 10but my problem is that dolby audio driver cant startwho can help me???  

Answer:Lenovo G780 problems update windows 10. Dolby-audio driver wont start

Dear Nmetje,
 
Welcome in lenovo community,
 
Please try to uninstall the audio driver >> Restart the laptop, then, right click the audio driver from the device manager and choose update driver software.
 
It is compatibility issue, só we will let the windows identify the compatible driver by itself.

Joseph

Hi, I have got a brand new thinkpad edge E530c and recently when I turn on my computer two messages come up. One saying 'Dolby profile selector has stopped working' and the other saying ' communications utility profiler stopped working'. I don't know what the communications utility profiler is but with the dolby problem I no longer get a dolby icon in my right hand corner task bar and if I click on dolby advanced audio in the start menu it says Dolby profile launcher has stopped working. Other than this, I dont think there are any symptoms, my sound seems to be OK, but I dont think its a great sign having error menus on a new computer. Could someone help me out with this?Thanks

Hi,I'm now using Ideapad Z510. After upgraded to Windows 8.1. I'd went to the Lenovo website searching for new driver update.But, after i install the "Realtek Audio Driver 6.0.1.7023", the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is not running(audio sound not playing through).And, the "Dolby Digital Plus" is running instead of "Dolby Home Theater V4".Then, when I try to reinstall the older version "Realtek Audio Driver 6.0.1.6954" from Lenovo website, the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is running again.Truly, the "Dolby Digital Plus"'s sound is crisper and louder than "Dolby Home Theater V4". But the sound of "Dolby Home Theater V4" has more bass and more function (like Graphic Equalizer, more Intelligent Equalizer etc.).Is this an update or what?What should I choose?The newer driver (for Windows 8.1) or older driver (for Dolby Home Theater V4)?  Thanks. (confused now) @@

Answer:Dolby Home Theater V4 changed to Dolby Digital Plus after Realtek Audio Driver update Windows 8.1

I only installed audio driver ver. 6.0.1.6798 which includes Dolby Home Theater V4. Since no issues are encountered I have not updated to the latest version for my unit (ver. 6.0.1.7027). Does this Dolby Digital Plus mentioned by you better than V4 in some aspect aside from the ones that you already stated?

Hi, I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E540 and I am trying to reinstall windows. actually I have had a problem with its harddisk so i replaced it with the new one. Now whenever I try to install windows 8 from iso image burned on a usb stick, the installation setup asks me the license key in the very beginning and since i dont have any license key as it is embedded in the bios/motherboard of my laptop, i cannot proceed with the installation any further. Does anybody know how can i get the license key out of my bios/motherboard so that i can proceed with the windows installation. My laptop originally had a windows 8 pro pre-installed. Thanks in advance

Hi,

I would like to install windows XP on the 44GB partition I made, and have a dual boot system.
But I am having trouble installing Windows XP (pro w/ SP3 and net framework 3.0, and my sata driver slipstreamed)

At first, I just got a blue screen after the disk attempted loading files. Then, I slipstreamed the SATA driver for XP for the EDGE 15 onto the XP installation Disk (There were three .inf files in the driver folder, I only slipstreamed the first one, and copied the driver folder into the image folder, following this guide: SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD).

This seemed to get me past the problem. I was able to format the 44GB partition the disk began installing. Then the computer restarted to finish the installation.
However, during the XP installation, I got a hang up at 33mins. After repeated tries, I get this hang up every time.

I tried disabling as many unnecessary devices in the Bios as I could, but I still get the same hang up.

I tried to find the problem by opening the command prompt and typing setupapi.log (in D:\Windows (the 44GB partition)
However, the last entry in the log was "completed successfully". (The guide I followed using "setupapi.log" was for the 34 min hang up. Since mine is 33min maybe its a completely different problem).

Should I try to slipstream all the drivers onto XP installation disk? (there appear to be over 100 drivers on the Lenovo support page for the thinkpad edge 15)

Answer:Trying to install Windows xp on partition of Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 15

You really only want the text file for the SATA controller driver, in order to overcome the bluescreen to display the HD partitions for install. Adding other drivers can actually create complications that cause install to fail while installing these drivers, which can be done from the desktop after install anyway.

Have you tried installing your XP programs in Win7 Compatibility Mode,
or virtualizing XP from within Win7 using XP Mode in Ultimate/Pro or freeware like Virtual Box, VMWare, or Virtual Player? These are easier than wrestling with an XPired OS.

I have just updated my ThinkPad E545 to Windows 8.1 today.  Every time after computer boots up, I get an Error message starting like "Dolby Advanced Audio - Can't start Dolby Audio. If this problem will stay restart the computer. I have Czech Wins that's why it should be little bit different. After restart the computer the note is there again. I found discussion where are helps like Uninstall Conexant, restart and then Install again. But the problem is still there. Maybe I do some mistake. Can anyone help me?

When playing audio through headphones, bass seems to be severely lacking. Although Dolby V4 seems to do well in producuing clear sound, I cannot find a configuration that supports deep bass in music. I have bose earphones that sound terrific at any bass frequency when plugged into my old dell, iphone, etc but no dice for the Twist.  Is this a hardware issue? Realtek driver? software? is the surround config too complex for my headphones?

Answer:Thinkpad Twist Dolby v4 Audio Quality (Bass)

well i just answered my own question so i guess Ill share: It was becase I had not switched to multistream mode, so that audio was coming through jack only. perhaps because dolby was protecting built in speakers from hiss

Answer:Problem Installing Windows 7 on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 13 665D817

I've seen this happen occasionally when you install via USB. In my experience, it's when a USB 3.0 or eSATA/USB combo port is present. It doesn't happen if you bootstrap it from an existing Windows, nor does it happen when you install from optical media.There's one trick that involves ImageX that you can use to install Windows, but that gets a bit complicated.

I recently bought a Thinkpad Edge 15 with the ATI graphics card, i5-560, 8 GB of RAM and a 500 GB HDD. Everything is perfect apart from the screen resolution. The screen looks good, but i can do with a better resolution that 1366x768. So i was just wondering if there is a way i can upgrade the screen by the official lenovo channels, maybe take my laptop to a lenovo service centre nearby and they can replace the screen.

I purchased 4 of these for my company in December 2011 and today have had to arrange for the 3rd one to be returned to Lenovo with the same problem.  The battery stops charging and will not hold charge and will not run unless powered into ac supply. The laptop will then not power on at all, completely dead no lights / sounds etc and when returned the previous 2 they have replaced the motherboard and have had no problems since. Even though have had this problem with 2 of the others Lenovo Technical Support have still said have to return it at my expense which because of the data included on it have had to return special delivery costing Ģ25 a time. They are returned withuin 7 days but think there may be a problem as this is a 75% failure rate. Anybody else had this problem as is putting me off buying anymore?

Hello. I've been looking for a solution for several days with no success so I decided to create my own thread. I've recently bought the G50-80 laptop. I performed a fresh install of win 7 Ultimate x64 on it and I downloaded and installed the most recent drivers from lenovo website. The problem is that Dolby surround sound is not working. The profile selector shows up properly and the equalizer works properly as well but surround virtualizer does nothing, ticking and unticking it does nothing as well as changing the level. My sound quality is at 24bit 44100 khz and I also own Creative Aurvana Live headphones which work just fine on my PC and surround works perfectly. My Conexant drivers are also up to date so the only thing that comes to my mind is that the new Conexant drivers are somewhat broken. Please help, I bought this laptop specifically because it was supposed to have surround sound and it's not working ;-;
