Preferred Solution: G780 Wireless headphone Sony not perfect working

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.

I have a Lenovo G780 laptop, and have had it for over a year, until 2 weeks back, everything was working fine. I started to have problems with the headphone jack where sound only came out of right ear.  Stereo Speakers were working fine. I made sure to go into Sound> Playback devices to make sure the Conexant Smart Audio was working right and the sound to L and R were balanced. I reinstalled the drivers (or what I found) and still it did not help. Now, a few days ago, the headphone jack stopped working completely (speakers still work). I retored my laptop to an earlier restor point (a month back when everything was working fine) and still no effect. Today when I tried to use the built in SD card reader, that I had used many times before, the card  reader would not detect it. I tried other Cards and they did not work either. I tried re installing the realtek drivers and got no effect. In device manager, whenever i insert the card, the wind refreshes, but nothing shows up in My Computer.I take good car of not laptop and there is no visible damage to any part of the laptop. I suspect the board inside is somehow damaged because the jack and card reader are located within a few mm of eachother. I have not yet tried factory restore, but all restore points do not fix the issue.

Answer:G780 Windows 7 SD/SDHC card reader and Headphone jack not working

I got the headphones to the previous state somehow where sound comes out of right ear, but that's it.

I have a G780 bought early this year. It came with Windows 8, which I am still using. Everything was working just fine until today. All of a sudden I can't connect to my wireless networks (I have a router that can have a "guest network" in addition to the normal one, and I can't connect to either of these). I had been fiddling with some of the settings last night, but everything had still been working fine. I can connect with other devices so I know the networks are working. The networks do show up in the list of available networks, but whenever I try and connect it just doesn't work. To make sure I wasn't just typing the passwords incorrectly I tried disabling all security on one of the networks (so it was a totally open network with no password), and the laptop still can't connect. I've tried restarting the wireless router, restarting the computer, updating the driver for the wireless card, uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them, enabling and disabling the wireless card, unchecking the option to allow the computer to turn off the wireless card to save power, and as a last ditch effort I even did this Windows 8 "Refresh" option which uninstalls all programs you've installed and resets options to the defaults. That also included uninstalling my antivirus program, so I've tried connecting without that, too. Nothing has made any difference. Edited to add that I also downloaded and ran the diagnostic tool from the Lenovo site for my laptop and version of Window... Read more

hi Maltiriel,
 
Thanks for using Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Can you try doing a system restore, maybe set it 2 days back or when you last work with the Wireless with no issues,
If that doesn't help,
 
Pull up the page on the right where it shows you all available wireless networks,

Hello Forum, I hope I'm posting this in the right place...? 


 
My device:G780 Notebook (M843RGE I3-2370M), Windows 7
Audio Driver: Conexant Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows 7 Version  8.54.32.50 (Smart Audio: 6.0.131.0) 
 
Situation:My headphone jack is broken. Repair is too expensive. Instead, I want to redirect the audio signal to the microphone jack.
 
Problem:This seems not to be possible with my SmartAudio interface (Screenshot below). But I found a screenshot of exactly the function I need called "Jack Configuration" in the Help section (second screenshot below). It looks like I dont have the right system configuration (whatever that means, I'm not an IT/PC expert ...) to use this feature.
 
My question:
Is there any way I can reconfigure the audio jacks on my notebook? Do I need another Conexant Audio Driver software and if yes, which one? 
 
I'm grateful for any helpful reaction!

Hello,

I recently bought a SVT11215SG - SVT11215SG : VAIO? Tap 11 : VAIO&reg Notebook & Computer : Sony Malaysia
Everything was working great, no issues, upgraded to Windows 8.1 smoothly.



But a few months later, suddenly the wireless keyboard stops working.





I have tried almost everything to get it to work again but nothing has worked so far.

Following are a list of things I have tried:



1. Use the pairing tool. (Got an error saying "Fail to get the dongle handle".

2. Reset the BIOS settings to default.

3. Reinstall Bluetooth and Wireless drivers.

4. Manually remove the drivers from Device Manager and reinstall them.

5. Use the Sony Vaio Care to get the latest updates.

6. Download and install the updates manually.

7. Check Windows Update for any optional updates.
I later found out that the keyboard does not work in BIOS either so I am not sure if it's a hardware issue. But the lights on the keyboard blink as normal when I turn it ON.

What should I do?
Will I really have to reinstall Windows?
If yes, is it okay to reinstall Windows on such a tablet PC?

Answer:Sony SVT11215SG wireless keyboard not working.

Can I get a quick reply please? I have to fix it in two hours.

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-N130g with Windows XP. I know its old, but I use it as a secondary computer... When I flip the wireless switch on the side to "on" the WLAN light in front does not turn on and when I do to choose a wireless network it says no wireless netowrks were found in range. I know this is not true because I am connected to the wireless network with my other computer in order to post this message.

Is my computer toast? Please help. Thanks!

Answer:Sony Vaio VGN-N130g Wireless Switch Not Working

The computer is not toast, but the wireless adapter may be.
Go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager, are there any devices with yellow flags? Under Network Adapters is your WiFi adapter listed there? Download the WiFi adapter driver for your computer. Sony eSupport - VGN-N130G - Drivers & Software
If this still fails, power down the computer, remove the power adapter and battery. Turn it face down and remove the plate that hides the RAM and Wireless card, make sure the antennae wires are both connected. If so, then this card may need to be replaced.

Hi,

I'm trying to connect a Sony VAIO PCG-GRT100 laptop computer to my network with a mini-PCI Intel 2100 3A 'b' card.

I used to have a Linksys PCMCIA wireless card - and it worked perfectly, but I didn't like having a big thing sticking out of the side. So - I got a mini-PCI card out of a Dell laptop (that I upgraded from just 'b' to a 2200 'b' and 'g' card), and thought I would put it into the Sony.

I installed the drivers, slotted in the card, connected the AUX and MAIN antennae, booted up - the computer recognised the card just fine - shows up in the control panel, and SYSTEM folder, etc.

BUT - when I search for networks I get nothing - "No wireless networks found". The laptop is sitting 4 feet from the router (a Netgear WGR614 by the way), and my other laptop 'see' about 8 network access points normally (I'm in a block of apartments / flats).

So - it appears the 'hardware switch' is turned off on the adaptor. Windows Control Panel / HW can't turn it on - but since this isn't a Centrino laptop - there's no button or switch to turn it on.

WHat can I do - the mini-PCI card is covered in plastic - is there a manual switch I can throw if I strip it off?

Any suggestions would be welcome!

Thanks,
Nikos

Hi, A few weeks ago i got my new Satellite M60.
Sound on laptop-speakers is great (Harman/Kardon) but is it possible there is a problem with the mini-jack for the headphone?
Sound via headphone is very week and i can't find how to improve it.
I often used my previous laptop to see movies on my TV (S-video + mini-jack for sound to AV-receiver). Sound was great... but now, when i connect my AV-receiver (or headphone) sound is very low...
Who could help me?

- I tried different headphones (who work fine on other laptops)
- I know about the sound-level wheel in front of the laptop :-)
- I tried the volume control tool in control panel

Answer:Satellite M60: Low sound on Headphone (perfect sound on speakers)

Hi Mark

Did you check the headphones settings in the ?sound and Audio devices??
Please go to ?Control Panel?-?Sound and Audio Devices?. In the ?Volume? tab you will find the ?Advanced? button. Press it.
There you will find volume controls. Please check if all controls are set to high.
Hope is helps.

I use headphones for medical transcription. Today, they fell off the table after I took them off, and pulled at the headphone jack. Now, I can only hear sound from the headphones, but not from the laptop speakers. Is there a way to take apart the laptop in order to see if the headphone jack is cracked, or if it moved? If I plug in the headphone jack and jiggle it I can get sound from my laptop speakers, but once I take the headphone connector out of the jack, all sound is gone again from the laptop speakers. My laptop is still under warranty, but we don't want to send it out for repair unless it is absolutely necessary. Please help us -we would like to be able to fix this problem ourselves as money is short, and I need the laptop to be here so I can do my medical transcription. Thanks!

I followed a number of the steps in this thread : Bluetooth headset pairs but won't connect, not avail as playback devic , specifically the post from 11th Dec 2014 . Computer has been restarted multiple times.

I've attached an image of what I see. I can connect the headphones to the laptop, but can't listen to music. I also cannot set the headphones to default playback.

Hi Satellite users,

I recently had a problem getting my Toshiba Satellite P50t-B running Windows 10 to detect (and hence connect) to my Sony MDR-XB50BS Bluetooth Headphones. The symptom of the problem was that the "MDR-XB50BS" device didn't appear in the list of available devices on the Windows Activity Centre "Connect" screen, nor in the Windows Settings -> Devices -> Bluetooth and other devices -> Add a device screen. Since the device never appeared, I couldn't connect to it.

The solution to the problem turned out to be upgrading my Toshiba Satellite BIOS from version 1.10 to BIOS version 1:50 available on the Drivers & Updates tab of the Toshiba Satellite Support site. The release notes mention a Bluetooth issue being corrected in version 1.40 and while I can't say for certain that this is the same issue I encountered, updating the BIOS was the last thing that I tried before the problem went away, and it's reasonable to expect that a relatively new technology like Bluetooth might have had early implementation bugs.

The other point to note is that if you've already paired the headphones with another device, like I had with my iPhone, then you have to hold the power button down for 7 seconds at power on in order to enter Bluetooth pairing mode first time you try to connect it to the Satellite.

I hope this helps someone someday!

Cheers,
Graham

I'm trying to connect a newly purchased G780 to my home network and I do not see our 5 ghz network available. I've got other devices connected on the 5 ghz network currently running and I can see the network as "active" on my router. However, the G780 only sees my 2.4 ghz network.

Hello peoples, I bring a question to you all regarding the G780s wireless adapter. I am asking this question on behalf of a friend who owns the laptop. A few weeks ago he bought the G780 brand new from the retail shop Argos (in the UK, for those outside). All seemed fine with it, until he tried to connect to his wireless network. He couldn't get ANY signal from his router downstairs, but his Xbox 360 and older laptop (Acer 5315) CAN get a decent signal. How, he removed Windows 8 and installed Windows 7, thinking it may have been a Windows 8 issue, but it was not. Since he removed the original OS, I figured that the warranty was now void, that and Argos refused to accept returns a WEEK after the purchase, so that sucked. Anyway, with that being the case, I opened the bottom panel to look at the wireless card, and noticed that it only had the ONE anntena cable, the black one, attached to it. So I thougt that could be the issue... the lack of two anntena resulted in low singal strength. So I stripped the laptop down so I could install the second, white, anntena.. and here's where things got funky. I looked on the right side of the screen at the hinge, to see how the black cable was routed into the chassis, so I could do the same for the white cable... HOWEVER... upon doing so, I noticed something... the black cable was severed.. literally sheered in two, so it wasn't attached to the LCD frame at all. I'm sure this happened dring the manufacture of the pr... Read more

Answer:G780 Poor Wireless Signal

This is funny. I spammed many angry threads about this issue som emonths ago. The wifi adapter itself is just garbage. I pleaded on the forums and made phone calls and they were all dead ends. You cannot change the wifi adapter because of lenovos bios restrictions. The Wifi adapter must have a particular FRU #. It is not possible to find a wifi adapter with the appropriate number and the experts on this forum never told me where I can get one. I think that may be because this product had zero support.

Is there any way to improve my wireless speed on my 4 year old G780? it has the Broadcom 802.11n wireless adaptor - and the drivers are showing as up to date  thanks.

Answer:how to improve wireless speed on G780?

The only option to improve upon the wifi speed would be to install a different wifi device.  As your notebook is four years old you may need to resort to a USB type of wireless device... The internal card would need to be ordered from Lenovo, and be a branded part from the notebook's "whitelist" found in the maintenance manual's parts listing.
 
That can be downloaded from the support tab of this website.
 
Good luck.

Answer:Wireless control light on G780 still on

hi KBoniecki
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
When you said "the wireless control light", you probably mean the wireless status indicator light.
   - Link to picture
 
I haven't tried this on the G780 but for the G580 (which is a similar model), you can turn off the lights by doing either one of the following:
 
1. Press the Windows key? +R, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter. On the Device Mananager, navigate to Network Adapters then right click on your wireless card (eg. Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter) and hit Disable.
 

 
 
2, Boot into the BIOS by tapping F2 on boot up then disable the Wireless LAN Support on the Conguration Tab.

whether I am at home or coffee shops my wireless connection speed is very slow.  typically getting 1-2 MBPS download speed where the connection is otherwise transmitting at 20-25mbps. Example today - home router cisco linksys N router when hardwired to my cisco wireless router I get 27-28mbps speed but when I switch to wireless only it slows down to about 1.5mbps.  at the same time I can get 10-11mbps speed on my andriod phone using the same internet speed test.net application. Today at Starbucks - andriod phone ( samsung galaxy S ii ) downlod speed ( wireless ) is @ 11-12mbps, however when I run same speed test on my lenovo G780 ( windows 8 64bit ) i can only get 1.46mbps speed. So in essence there is something amiss with my wireless adapter card ( broadcom 802.11 )  but i can't figure out if it is card/hardware issue, a config issue or driver issue.  I searched the lenovo site for an updated driver but the download section doesn't even list the broadcom adapter driver at all, just intel, liteon and something else. I called Lenovo support and of course they said since my adpater card was in fact connecting then it was fine and they wanted to charge me to fix the problem... Please help !!

Answer:G780 with Broadcom Wireless - VERY slow

WOw, no responses here, must not be a well traveled site/forum. Well, I solved my problem finally, I got a new cisco N750 dual band router and that worked well for wireless connection finally, must have been some incompatibility issues with that older router and the new broadcom wireless card.  Was still having a few problems with overall connection to the internet so i swapped out my old mediacom modem for a new motorola 6121 modem and reconfiged the setup again and now everything is back to normal, well above normal really cause now I am getting 23-28mbps download speed when I am privisioned for 15mbps, but that is during the day mon-fri.  Ill see how it does during high traffic periods.... so far so good !!

I am very happy with the performance of the PC, but ultimately decided to swap windows 8 out for windows 7 home premuim. That said I have done a clean installation of Win7, downloaded all the drivers from the support section of the website. Everything was working and going great until I got to this driver Intel WiMax Driver. The card is identified in the device manager as "Network Controller" but has no driver, nor can windows find another to install. I spent a few hours searching here and on google, unable to find similar problems regarding the wifi. When the file for the download is opened, it gives a message saying "Unable to find specified path" or something along the lines and closes through a series of message boxes. My question is there perhaps an older version of the driver that can be downloaded from lenovo? Or is there something I have overlooked? I would very much like to get the Wifi working, as it is the last hurdle to getting everything set up. Thank you for your time!-Josh

Answer:G780 Wireless Drivers - Failed to install

hi Joshly,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
The Network Controller device for the Lenovo G780 is usually the Intel Wireless Adapter with WiMax capability. Can you try to install the following for Windows 8 (32bit / 64bit):
  
Intel Wireless LAN Driver              Intel WiMax Driverv15.5.0.42                                    v7.5.1007.26
0qwl07w8.exe                              0qwo03w8.exe           540KB                                         88.7MB
 
Let me know if you get any errors.
 
 
Cheers

I upgraded my Lenovo G780 wireless to a Atheros AR9285 but when I booted up the computer i see "Unauthorized Wireless Network Card plugged in. Please remove it. How can I bypass this? I'm not going to get a refund for this card.  Is there any way to bypass the lenovo whitelist? This is really dumb that a consumer can't by a product and modify it to how ever they want to. 

Answer:Lenovo G780 Wireless Card Whitelist

hi kingofweb89,
 
Your issue might be similar to this thread.
 
So far, the only way to bypass the "Unauthorized Wireless Network Card plugged in" is thru BIOS modification (discussion here, here, and here) as there's no BIOS updates available yet from the lenovo website.. Flashing a modded BIOS though into your machine is risky as it may brick your PC so take every necessary precaution.
 
 
Hope this helps.

I just upgraded to Windows 8.1 yesterday. After that, I have not been able to access my home wireless network. The funny thing is, if I go to a Starbuck's or something like that, I have no trouble accessing their networks. The problem isn't with my router because my other wireless home devices, including Windows 7 machines are fine. After running the trouble-shooting prompt on my G780, it tells me I need to install an ethernet cable! I never had network connectivity problems with Windows 8.0 on this machine. I suppose it's possible I need a new driver, but that wouldn't explain why it works on public networks.

Answer:wireless connection issues Windows 8.1 on G780

I am having this problem, too. I haven't checked on public wifi, but I have no wireless at home since updating to Win 8.1.  My other laptop has wireless access at home, but my g780 has to be connected via ethernet cable. Your question here is all I've been able to find on the subject.

This is driving me mad!I have a G780 that I have re-imaged with Win 7 Enterprise x64 and reinstaled all the drivers for.I am trying to connect to our wifi but the laptop is saying no connections detected.  I know the wifi is working as I have 40-50 other laptops connecting to it.  The wifi is Broadcomm 6.20.55.51. I have uninstalled and re-installed the driver, disabled and re-enabled in the BIOS, rolled back to the previous version of the driver (5.100.82.112), replaced the wifi card with another G780 wifi card. The oiginal OS was Win 7 Home Premium x64 and was working then. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I can not stop my g780 with win 8 from going to sleep after 30 -60 seconds (if no movment) even though i have gone to power options and made what i thought was the proper adjustments to make it stay on all the time when plugged in, but it seams that any changes i try to make, makes no difference. Is this an issue with Lenovo system management or Win 8 or a conflict with the both of them, this problem is very disturbing and very unacceptible for proper funtion usage of a pc.  I have seen other posts with diff models having same problem which suggests that this is a Lenovo system problem.  Any suggestions to fixing this

Answer:g780 power options not working

Hi totaleclipser,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
  I believe that this is the settings you checked:
under Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options
    Under you selected power plan click on Change plan settings
Just make sure that sleep and turn off display are on Never
 

 
Also one thing to check is screen saver, 
   Right click on your desktop screen and choose Personalize,
     On the lower left you should see a screen saver option.
       Make sure it is set to none.

 
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

According to this pdf data sheet, the Lenovo G780 has a:

Have you tried an SDSC card? (4GB or less). If it works, the sd card reader may not support SDHC (up to 32GB).

Hi I have 20 G780 model name 2182. I can't get any of them to work with wake on lan from shutdown state. I can however get them to work from sleep mode. When laptop shuts down link on NIC turns off aswell.I have 40 G770 and they all work with wake on lan from shutdown. I have tried with windows 7, windows 8 and windows 8.1.I have enabled wake on pattern, wake on magic packet and allow this devices to wake the computer (and only allow a magic packet to wake the computer).Bios version is latest  96 from 24 Apr 2013There are no "Wake on lan" features in bios.I have tried NIC drivers from microsoft, Lenovo website and Atheros official drivers.I have turned off UACI have turned off FirewallI have turned off all power saving settingsI have tried changing switch, hub and cables just in case. Am I missing something or are the G780 just not designed for WOL from shutdown state  ? Thanks in advancedHildertu    

Answer:G780 Model Name 2182 WOL not working

hi hildertu,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
This may not be possible. Since this is not supported in BIOS
     When the computer is in Hibernate and/or in shutdown state it need to cross the BIOS to wake up the computer or turn it on.
 
      Sleep will be ok since the LAN card supports it and it is the OS that wakes the system up and not the BIOS.

When I first boot up the laptop, the internet works fine. When I close the computer and then open it up later to wake it from sleep mode, the internet doesn't work. The only solution I've found is to reboot the machine. I can ping websites fine using the command prompt, but when I try loading a webpage on Google Chrome or Internet Explorer, nothing loads. On the command prompt, "ipconfig /release" works fine but when I try "ipconfig /renew" the command prompt hangs.The Network card is a Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter with Hardware ID of PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727 running on Windows 8 64-bit. I have tried the driver from the Lenovo G780 driver page, the one from Windows Update, and the latest version from an HP laptop that uses the same card and still have the same problem.

Answer:Wireless doesn't work when waking from sleep on G780

hi hamburglar,
 
Can you try to:
1. Set the power settings to high performance (this will use max. performance on the wifi card and disable link state power management on the PCI Express)
 
2.  On the Device Manager, navigate to the Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter > right click and choose properties > on the Power Management Tab, uncheck "allow this computer to turn off this device to save power".
 
3. If same problem, try to boot into Safe Mode with Networking and observe (if everything works, temporarily turn off your antivirus / security software and boot in normal mode).

I upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 (64-bit). The built-in microphone no longer works. Device manager reports that the driver (Conexant SmartAudio HD) is functioning and fully up to date. The version is the same # as the current Windows 8.1 driver available on my product download page, version 8.65.3.53. Windows Update reports that I have the most up to date driver installed. I have tried uninstalling the device in Device Manager, re-updating the driver to the version noted above, and even trying the Windows 8 driver. I also tried disabling Audio Enhancements in the Recording Devices - Advanced control panel for the internal microphone and tried increasing the input volume and the microphone boost all the way. It still doesn't seem to sense any sound, neither in the control panel or in Skype. Audio playback and system sound work just fine.

Hello good people of Lenovo Community, After having been trying for quite a lot of time on my own, I'd now like to ask you for any suggestions regarding the following problem: My earphones don't work properly, however only when plugged into my G780 laptop. Actually if I put the jack fully in, only right earphone works, while the left is dead; if I put in it let's say up to 50% then only left earphone works, and the right is almost dead. I've tried it with different headphones and got the same result everytime. When I use my earphones on other devices (mp3 player, cellphone, etc.) they seem to be working just fine, no malfunction. This occurs no matter which source is being used to produce sound (youtube, bsplayer, windows media player etc.).  I've updated the Realtek Audio Driver - perhaps not 100% correctly - however when I open the device manager and check for update of the sound card driver it says it's already up to date. What else should I try? Oh, as I said my pc is G780, Win 8.1 64 bit, i7 Core etc.  If anyone could help me I'd be truly grateful,Pete

I noticed that the Synaptic Touchpad driver (I updated to the latest version) would stop functioning whenever I do a hard drive-intensive task. For example, When I run a virus scanner, when I convert movies, when I record anything, the Synaptics driver stops working. I can still use the touchpad, but all of the original driver features are gone and the icon from the taskbar dissappears as well. Stranger still, whenever something like this happens, I try to go into mouse properties in the control panel and it ALWAYS becomes completely unresponsive and freezes up. I cannot do anything with the touchpad control panel either. When I stop whatever I am doing to the hard drive, everything goes back to normal and the Synaptics touchpad driver re-enables and appears in my taskbar again. Help?Thanks!-Clark

First of all I want to say that I am extremely disappointed with the experience I had with my Lenovo. After I bought it I found out that Lenovo, for some reason, disabled the Turbo Boost option of the CPU. I tried to fix it by entering the BIOS but the options there were limited, so I decided to update the BIOS. I downloaded the BIOS update for 64-bit windows(i am running windows 8 which is compatible with the said update utillity). I ran the .exe and followed all the instructions (did not shut-down restart or anything my computer). After installing it automatically restarted and a Lenovo logo prompted on the screen followed by ">>Start PXE over IPv6, Press [ESC] to EXIT..." after that "EFI Network 0 for IPv6(numbers and letters) boot failed". Then ">>Start PXE over IPv4" which failed and a blue box poped saying "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert Recovery Media and Hit any ket then select boot manager to choose a new boot device or to boot recovery media". Pressed ok and got me to Boot Manager screen. Boot option Menu had only EFI Network 0 for IPv6 and EFI Network 0 for IPv4". What should I do?Note that I tried to start up both with and without the ethernet cable in.

Answer:Touchpad stopped working (G780 model).

hi iljekralj92,
 
If you have already installed the Touchpad Driver (for Windows 7 or Windows 8) and you don't see a Lenovo Pointing Device under Mice and other Pointing Devices on Device Manager, there might be a problem with the touchpad sensor chip.
 
What you could try is:
1. Shutdown the computer and unplug the battery and AC adapter
2. Hold the power button for 10secs & re-insert the AC adapter.
3. Boot into the BIOS by pressing F2, when you're in, press F9 to reset settings to factory default and press F10 to save the settings and exit BIOS.
4. Turn off the computer and press the One Key Recovery (OKR) button (this will load the OKR interface with the mouse enabled - test the mouse cursor if it's working)
 
If the problem persists, I recommend you contact Lenovo Technical support for service.

Answer:Audio not working after Windows 10 upgrade (Lenovo G780)

I have a very similar problem. After upgrading to Win 10, I get a driver error with Dolby Audio (although my audio still functions) and am told to re-install the driver or reboot. If I reboot, I get stuck with the dreaded Blue Screen, and the only thing I can do is to revert to Windows 8.1. After reloading Win 10 I've tried several things - deleting Dolby Audio from Programs, uninstalling Conexant drivers for audio,... None have had success and I always have to revert to Win 8.1. Would like Win 10, but doesn't look good right now. Anyone have any other ideas? Very disappointing.

Hi,

I have a dual boot of Fedora and Windows, and when I boot into Fedora, my headphones work fine. When I boot into Windows 7 64bit, my headphones don't work. My laptop speakers work fine however, and I tried re-installing drivers. I made sure that my headphones are the default playback device, and I only have one headphone jack.

Other people who had this issue solved it by replacing their audio jack, but for me that is not a problem because the audio jack works fine when I boot into Fedora.

Please help!

Janac

Answer:Laptop speakers working, but headphone jack not working only on Window

Normally, the "Speakers" (PC sound) is set as the Default Playback device and not Headphones. In fact, newer RealTek sound systems do not even show the Headphones when plugged in.

Are you using the correct sound drivers? Not the generic Windows installed High Definition Audio Codec.

What all is listed in the Device Manager, Sound section?

The strange thing is is I can do a google search using the wireless network which brings up the results but I can't view any of the websites. I am also able to play online games wirelessly. Also my mobile phone is unable to use the wireless connection as is my wii although both report connected.I have run anti virus and malware checks - all are clear. I am not aware of making any changes to the system which may have caused this.Any suggestions would be very welcome. Thanks in advance.David.

Answer:Wired perfect, wireless connects but no internet??

Do you have the firewall turned on in the router ? Maybe this is blocking the things you wish to see , try turning it off , it might just help .... Ashley .

I have a Speedtouch 780. My wireless connection is fine on all wireless devices. My ethernet connection on all ethernet enable devices won't connect to the internet.IP addresses appear as usual and I am able to access router page via an ethernet connection.I have looked everywhere for even a cause, let alone a solution. Physically everything seems to be working perfectly, all the correct lights are on, and the PC and and router both recognise eachother so I have simply no idea why the internet is not accessible when using ethernet rather than WiFi.Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I have a brand new T410 with intel wireless 6200 abgn, wireless N performance is poor when streaming video etc. I have done quite a lot of work and updated driver to latest 13.4.0.9 and also tried both winXP and Win7 pro 64 bit, both the same. Problem:When streaming wireless N @ 300mbs, even if 6 feet from the access point (Draytek 2820 bgn) after varying times, up to 2 minutes, wireless network traffic will pause for between 1 second to maybe 10 seconds or more then 'wake up' The signal always shows 300mbs connection, so not connectivity, performance monitor shows no lost packets and of course when video buffer runs out (5 sec) then video stops.  If the pause is not too long, the video stream will re-start., but not a great viewing experience as a result. Even if I cut the video stream rate to just 3mbit/s it stops stream for 5-10 seconds every 2-3 minutes, worse if I stream at full speed 8mbit/s. I also checked wireless performance with iperf to check max wireless data xfer speed connected at a steady 300mbit/s  wireless N, single TCP datastream stream, but xmit is  a steady 27.5mbit/s max over 30 seconds but receive 22mbit/s max can drop to zero, yes 0mbit/s  for up to 3 seconds in a 30second burst . the test from wireless  to a GbE wired PC on the router GbE port , If I checked the 6200 stats, it shows nothing either, all traffic is in one the '2x54 and 2x60m...

Answer:Perfect Tube App Not Working~!!! How can I get it working?

Maybe try the developer of the program directly ?
It isn't a Windows / Microsoft issue, their app is simply available via the App Store. Personally, I don't use it. I use You Tube directly and You Tube HD Downloader on occasion.

So I just upgraded a eMachines E627 from a TF-20(single core) to a TF-50(dual core) processor. I installed everything back in, it booted, but 5 seconds after the login screen appears, a BSOD pops up quickly with some nonsense about a driver, and the comp restarts.

-Windows 7 Home Premium (32 bit I believe, SP1?)

It boots perfectly in safe mode, but when I boot in safe mode (with networking), it Blue screens. So I pulled the wireless card out, and booted into full windows mode. Works perfect. I can also run a wired connection and it will connect to the internet.

I updated all networking drivers, but it still doesn't work. I also switched around the wires where the antenna plugs into the card, but still no go.

Also, before the upgrade, MSN messenger would usually not work while in wireless mode, but worked perfect with a wireless connection.

I will attach a zip file with my driver report, a DxDiag, and here is the BSOD message after I reboot into a stable mode:

Answer:Touchpad on Satellite M40X isn't working perfect

Hi

Firstly you should check the Touchpad settings in the ?Mouse Properties?
There you will find ?Advanced? tab. Use the ?Advanced feature?
Now you should see many settings which are responsible for the touchpad usage.
Make a overview. If all settings are ok, well in my opinion the touchpad is broken and you need a new one.

In this case you should contact the Toshiba service in your country.

Lately I have discovered that the surround sound system I am using late at night can upset the neighbors

Also it would just be handy if I could own a wireless headphone set (possibly with a mic), I wondered if it were possible for a headset which plugged into the speaker slot and use the mic as an 360 mic or would the mic on the headset not work? may be confusing some people here...

Anyways I am more concerned about which headphones to buy, Im not too bothered about a mic unless it works with the xbox 360, I would prefer headphones with surround sound well alike surround sound (they say the headphones have surround sound but I cant imagine it being to good compared to speaker surround sound).

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/116420

the link above is a "UK exclusive" pair which are made by Philips, they look and after reading about them well amazing, and meet my requirements. Sennheiser I have read are a good brand, if some suggestions of good WIRELESS headphones were to be posted in I would appreciate it so much.
My budget is a maximum of £120, don't want to spend too much, £70 - 100 would be a fairly good price range for me. Thats around a max budget of $260/270 and a good range of $160 - $220

Thanks again!,

Good afternoon,
A couple of weeks ago I asked if wireless headphones were worth having. But our tv does not support this sort of thing. So I went into Maplin’s and spoke to a bloke there and he said he wasn’t sure but they had a unit which on one side has a scart socket and vision and audio sockets on the other.
So what I thought of doing was to get one of these units – there are two, one in and one out – and then get a small(ish) length of cable which would have the two audio sockets at one end and then merge into one at the other, and I could just connect my ‘ordinary’ headphones into this socket. If there was a volume controller in there somewhere so much the better. The bloke at Maplin’s could only get to this by having a male/female connector on the end of the two-into-one because it had a male end connector. I asked him if it would work, but he didn’t know and didn’t suggest a ‘try-and-return’ policy, so I left it.
So my question is this: does anyone a) know if such an arrangement would even work and b) apart from Maplin’s is there anywhere else anyone could suggest I go to try and get these – preferably one combined unit! – with a guarantee they would work?
Many thanks in anticipation, and a very Happy New Year to everyone.

So, just this morning I found a pair of Sylvania wireless headphones at Half Price Books. I unplugged my old speakers and replaced them with the new one, put batteries in everything, but when I tried to get it to connect to my computer sound, the only things it would connect to were some radio stations and static. So, for my first question, does anyone know what I should do for those?

Anyway, after I decided that they weren't going to work, I decided to switch back to my old speaker and earbud combo. So I plugged the speakers into the computer and the power strip. I tested out the sound with a the Nyan Cat video on Youtube (because I always use that one for trying out headphones), and I could hear like I usually do, but now there's a very loud buzzing sound in both of my headphones, and there was only very light static before. Was I supposed to do anything different when connecting them? They're Inland speakers.

I also had Realtek Audio manager pop up when I connected them, and I don't really know what I should do with that.

Help?

Answer:Headphone set not working???

Your head phones would plug into the same jack as the speakers. The third jack you are seeing should be a line in. This is for recording sound/music from an external device to your PC. You will not get sound out through this port.

However, the Device dropdown is disabled. 2. When I go to Playback Devices, I'm unable to see Headphones. I'm trying to download the latest drivers from the Lenovo website but the site seems to be down (it takes me to the https://download.lenovo.com/eol/index.html page, where my model isn't listed). I just tried installing the latest drivers from the Realtek website but this hasn't changed anything. What do I do??

Second headphone: Firstline (I think a no-brand, considering its price), works with Dell 8250, but not with 4600 (can hear perfectly, but no recording through the mike so people can not hear me on, say, Skype or on sound recorder).

The second computer and the firstline headphone belong to a friend, and I would not advise him to buy another headphone, if the current one can work. Many thanks. The pins on firstline are color coded (pink and green) for microphone and lineout, while on Labtec, these are pink and black.

Many thanks for your help.
 

Answer:Headphone working on one computer, not on another

G'day js73, you are aware that the two headset plugs are generally one for mic and one for audio, as to why one works on one machine and not on another there is no simple explanation as far as I can see.
You obviously are using the same two jack-sockets and can hear normally in both instances but one mic has no audio, apart from checking and trying different level settings in the audio set levels by right-clicking the speaker icon near the clock the only other possibility is that there must be some very odd circumstance with one headset, maybe the actual mic plug is slightly different physically and not contacting one socket contact properly somehow.
Cheers, qldit.

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
The Y50 Supports a combo jack 3.5mm type of connection
This is a Mic and Earphone in just one jack. and not separate. Making it different as it has a different connector inside and touches the Plug Differently.
 
Can you try a combo jack on your Computer first and check if it will work. if it will work then You can get youself a Combo jack converter which can convert your two plug (mic and earphone) into just one plug combojack.
 

 
Hope this helps

Answer:Y50 Headphone Jack Not Working

hi Niphoros,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Just to verify, do you get a pop-up notification whenever you plugged-in a headphone / earphone?
- Link to picture
 
If yes then your issue is most likely similar to this article.As per these specs, the Y50 uses an audio combo jack (headphone and mic). Although this port supports various mobile headphones, you may need to get a PC Headset to 3.5mm Smartphone Adapter if you're using a traditional headset with a separate.audio and mic connector.

Hallo,

The microphone on this non-brand headset isn't working due to the microphone not showing up under the recording devices. Audio is working for the headset (and anything else that I plug in ), but not the microphone. The green bars do not go up in the audio manager either when I test the microphone. I'd like to use this for teamspeak, but there doesn't seem to be anything that I have found on google to solve this so far, or anything that I've figured out on my end. I have attached a screenshot of what is happening in my audio manager. When any headphones/earphones are plugged into the green jack, they work and sound is audible, however in the audio manager it still says that no headset is plugged in even with them plugged in & working.

Any help is appreciated, thanks. =)

Answer:Non-usb headphone set, microphone not working

The first thing I see is "High Definition Audio Device" which suggests you do not have the correct sound driver installed. The High Definition Audio Device is the generic, basic function, driver installed by Windows. Get the correct sound driver from ASUS for your specific PC model and install that. That is the first step.

I have tried the headphones on other devices and they work fine. Looking on YouTube I have updated the drivers  and then put my headphones in the headphone socket, and checked the Sound driver (Realtek HD Audio) on the "Playback devices" tab -  it shows a headphone icon with a red down arrow next to it with a description "Realtek HD Audio 2nd Output" and "Not Plugged In". How do I get this socket to "plug in"  ? Or is this a hardware problem ? Thanks in advance for anyone's help.
