In the SRS Premium Sound panel, I can click on speaker and headphones, but I cannot select built-in speakers.could it be a hardware malfunction? loose connection?Pleasehelp - thankyou

Hello community, I have tried to figure out a solution to this issue on my own, yet to no avail. The camera on my laptop isn't recognized by skype or web applications that request access to it. I tried upgrading the drivers, but it didn't change anything. Is there any solution I haven't tried yet? I seriously doubt the camera is broken, as this laptop hasn't been dropped to the ground or anything like it.

Hi, I am using Lenovo G460 since 2 years and I am unable to hear from internal speakers, but I connected headphones or external speakers it's working fine. anybody can tell the problem

Answer:my lenovo g460 internal speakers are not working

hi arjunkanda,
 
Can you try Uninstalling and Reinstalling the Audio Driver,
 
Open Device Manager and look under sound and gaming controller for WIN7 and Audio input for WIN8/8.1
   Look for something says Conexant, and uninstall it.
       Place a check if you're prompted of "Delete driver software for this device"
 
Then install a audio driver from this download link of your system and install it.
      http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?DocID=HT072732
 
See if that works,
  If not then, Im thinking a connection problem of the Speakers,
 
You can check your system's  Maintenance Manual to check on how to get access to the speaker cables connecting to the Mainboard on page (52).
 
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

For several last days, I have a strange behavior of speakers and microphone in my t470p. For most of the time they are unavailable in both Linux or Windows OS. However, where I'm doing little push on screen backward (like adjusting screen little bit), both microphone and speaker start working and become available. After I stop adjusting screen (making push backward) device become unavailable again. I'm sure that it is some kind of hardware problem and it should be easy fixing (like some connector is not attached properly inside LCD panel), but according to maintenance manual, I do not see any wires related to speakers or sound card going inside LCD panel. Can anybody advise how to fix such behavior?

Hi.  I want to use an external microphone along with the internal speakers provided.  However, when I plug in the microphone into the audio/microphone jack (4-pin I believe), the computer registers this as both a microphone and headphones.  The result is that I can speak through my microphone but am unable to hear through the internal speakers.  The conexant smartaudio HD switches from the speakers to the headset and I am unable to distinguish between the two while using skype or other programs. Are there any fixes for this?

Hello Philip,
 
As mentioned in your post, you have performed all the major troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue. I suggest you to update your BIOS also in order to resolve your issue. You can download and update the BIOS update utility from the below mentioned web link.

Hi!Lenovo TP T500, Win7Pro 32. There was a problem with the integrated speakers. Yesterday worked fine. Then, after a conversation on Skype through a wired headset from the integrated speakers sound stopped going. Through headphones the sound is fine. All tests are integrated speakers through the control panel are normal, no errors shown. But the sound of them is not. That is, I have created the absolute impression that the laptop "thinks" as if the headset is still activated. What will advise?

Answer:Lenovo TP T500, Win7Pro 32. Speakers stopped working

Make sure if you haven't done so already to press and hold (for a few seconds) the volume UP button on the top row of the keyboard.  It's usually pretty close to the blue ThinkVantage butoon.

Hi, hope I'm posting in the right place.

I had a set of GE 2.1 speakers working well with my Sony Vaio for about a year. Recently the sound started to go in & out, I had to move the wire around a lot and tape it or hold it in a certain spot to get them to work. Then one day they stopped working altogether. Assuming it was the speakers, I went and bought a new set from Best Buy. Took them home, plugged them in... and nothing, nothing at all. So I tried the OLD speakers in another desktop computer, and they worked perfectly.

So I assumed my headphone jack was broken and was going to go about trying to get a new piece and solder it and all that, but then I'm sitting here and just realized my headphones work perfectly.

What's wrong? How come the headphones work, but 2 pairs of external speakers don't?

Thanks so much

Jillian

I literally just unboxed this Lenovo U400 laptop less than an hour ago, and to my chargin I found out that the touchpad doesn't work. I've tried using the hardware key (F6) to enable it, which had no effect at all, so I decided to go into device manager to see what the problem was. There was no touchpad listed. Could somebody help me? I'm not a huge tech whiz, so I'm not sure what a driver does, but I installed one that was listed on Lenovo's support website for this model. It didn't really have any effect on the computer, although when I went into my list of programs it was listed there. Could somebody help? I really don't want to return this laptop, because it was a really good steal ($525) and also because returns aren't free. I know other people have had problems with the touchpad before (nothing as drastic as not working straight out of the box, admittedly). Thank you~

HiThe only option left for you is taking your laptop to lenovo support. I think that the touchpad hasnt been connected properly.

Diskette is really a floppy disk.Go to 'Computer', right click on the icon for the CD (may show the name of the disk) and select 'Eject' from the menu.That should work 95% of the time.

Answer:Lenovo U400 Screen Scrambled

hi goholmes,
 
Thanks for Posting..
 
What you just did is some serious Troubleshooting.
Based on what is showing, I can say that it will be either of the two, LCD Cable or the LCD it self.
If you were able to output fine through HDMI then it is not your Mainboard
If you have a local computer shop or store, You can try getting the cable first and try it out first.
If that showed the same problem, then you can get the LCD.
You can check this Maintenance Manual on what LCD parts to get.
 
Hope this helps

I own a Lenovo U400 laptop (S/N: WB03623719).  20% of the keys in the internal keyboard inexplicably stopped working. Disassembly and cleaning it didn't seem to work. The laptop is no longer under warranty and was purchased 2.5 years ago.  I'd like to replace the internal keyboard, but there are hardly any websites that offer a replacement and the existing ones look dubious/unreliable. Would it be possible to place an order for a replacement directly with Lenovo? How might one do that? I currently reside in Warsaw, Poland. 

Answer:Lenovo U400 keyboard replacement

Check out the two links I have listed below.  Each link has a contact phone number for Lenovo Support in your country. Hopefully they will be able to assist you in obtaining a replacement. 
 
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/supportphonelist_alt1
 
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/migr-50278
 
If either of those two contacts aren't helpful then I would suggest doing an Internet search on the part number listed on the back of your keyboard if you haven't done so already.  eBay is also a good source for computer parts.

I recently purchased U400 laptop and found that its infected with Trojan virus. Formatted the disk, installed windows 7 and downloaded U400 drivers from support.lenovo.com. After installing drivers the computer is again infected and the screen is Locked. Some of its drivers are packed with Trojan Virus. Driver: IN1ETN02WW5.exe

Yesterday, after some hardware changes, my relatively new u400 failed to start. With quick boot, it would only display a blinking cursor in the top left of the screen, and in normal boot, the Lenovo screen, but no keyboard options. I can get into the BIOS, and the settings there are all correct, but I haven't been able to boot into Windows. The hardware changes I have made are 1) replacement of the ODD with a caddy for the original 2.5" HDD for mass storage and 2) installation of a 64 gb mSATA SSD. I had previously switched the original Seagate Momentus HDD for a Crucial M4 SSD and had no issues with boot at all until now. I have tried reverting to an older image that I know works as well as cloning the old HDD (still containing all of the data I had before switching over to the SSD, including the lenovo partitions and windows installation) over to the SSD boot drive, but neither option worked. I also removed the SSD and put it into my main system to attempt to boot and received an Unmountable Boot Volume error. From the same machine (not the u400) I used the windows recovery enviornment to run chkdsk, fixboot, and fixmbr, but none of those found anything wrong with the drive. I also tried reinstalling windows (windows 7 OEM, not with the lenovo changes or partitions) but that still didn't change anything. I am unable to get the u400 to properly boot off a USB ODD I have, or at least it doesn't appear to, with all that happens is the lenovo screen disappears and the screen is... Read more

Answer:Lenovo u400 boot failure

For booting into the odd you should only boot from it. For that press F12 at the lenovo screen and choose the odd drive. That help you to boot to the caddy.

For the most part, my laptop works fine.  However, sometimes the laptop will suddenly decide that it's time to turn off the cpu fan - which results in the cpu getting hot - which results in death / crash. Cpu sensors are showing that the temperature is increasing. It seems like this problem mainly happens after sleeping.  When sleeping ,the fan turns off, when the computer is waken up, it dosen't start the fan back up. And explanations?  / Solutions

Hi I'm new to this community but I have identified a small (but annoying) problem with my U400. So heres the problem:When I close the lid, the computer goes to sleep all nice and fine.  It's really awesome.Then, if I place my laptop in my backpack and wait, I take it out again to find that the computer is in fact, not in sleep mode. The computer's lid is closed but the laptop's screen is open to the log in screen for windows.Now, at first I thought this to be a software issue where there was a bug that somehow prevented my computer from going to sleep.BUT, after some testing, I identified the problem being that the lid of the laptop bends just enough that when it is in my bag, the lid brushes one of the keys on the keyboard and wakes the laptop from sleep.  I tested this while my laptop was in my backpack and while it was out on the table.  Pressing down on the lid with slight pressure brought the power light at the lower left to full.  A blinking light means that the computer is asleep while a solid light means that the laptop is awake and using much more power than necessary. I just want to know if anyone has some sort of solution to this problem.  Is there some sort of program that prevents the keyboard from waking the computer if the lid is closed or something similar? Thanks in advance.

But the battery time was mutch worse that with Windows, so I installed windows again.The problem was that it is my firs laptop. I did not know that the 10GB partition contained the originaly installed windows with all the drivers on it so I formatted that one too, when I installed linux. So now I can't re install windows What can I do? Can I download the original installer to my laptop?

Answer:Lenovo U400 frash install problem.

Hi marosige and welcome to the community,
 
No, there isn't any download available.
 
What you were supposed to do was when you got Windows set up was to burn a set of restore discs using the one-key recovery. That way if anything were to go wrong with your installation you would be able to restore the OS using the discs.
 
Since that isn't possible anymore, the only way to recover to factory settings is to make a call to service and get them to send you a set of restore discs for your machine.

Dear everyone, I have just installed fresh copy of Windows 10 and when I tried to install some drivers I was quite surprised that there are no win 10 drivers in general. Most of the stuff on the U400 works as it is after the windows installation but it seems that the Touchpad is not being detected since I cannot install any drivers and Device Manager detects something called PS/2 Compatible Mouse. When I tryied Win 8 drivers it seems to work and I was able to use two-finger scrolling but after couple of minutes the Touchpad would just quit on me and Tap-to-Click would just stop working. Anyway, I would just like some advice on what to do about drivers for U400 on Win 10. Thank you in advance,Nikola

Hi, I have a Lenovo U400 running Windows 7 that I really like; however, somehow the switch internal to the headphone jack has become confused and thinks the headphones are plugged in when they are not, and not plugged in when they are. I have tried disabling and re-enabling within Windows as well as uninstalling and reinstalling the driver from Lenovo. The connection is snug like it should be, and wiggling, or inserting / removing an 1/8 audio plug seems to make no difference. If headphones are connected, it thinks there not, and if headphones are not connected, it thinks they are. Please help?

I am a student studying in a local polytechnic and I use this laptop for school so I can't afford expensive repairs or buy a new laptop.

I purchased a Lenovo U400 4 months ago. It has not been booting up properly for the past 4-5 days. Initially, it says windows failed to boot up , gives options to launch startup repair or start windows normally. When you press either option. tt says Windows encountered an error and the error code's 0xc00000e9. One cannot proceed any further. Just exit and go back to Lenovo screen.  If I click F12, and go into advanced boot options, choose SSD , then choose start windows normally, then it boots up, and windows works just fine. There's absolutely no issue with speed or performance,  whatsoever. I haven't done any serious changes to my system, nor have I installed any crapware into it. Previously when this happened, a fresh reinstallation using Lenovo One key recovery helped. This doesn't seem like a permanent option though.  Help! What should I do? 

Answer:Lenovo U400 Windows doesn't bootup/startup

Actually the error that you are facing is generally related to corrupt registry. The below link will explain better about the error.http://0xc00000e9.wordpress.com/2012/05/28/fix-0xc00000e9-errors-on-your-pc/What i suspect here is that some specific program is responsible for this error that you have installed after doing one key recovery. Or the factory pre installed os itself has corrupt regesteries.

I've been getting boot error in my 8 month old Lenovo U400. No changes were done in hardware or software. It says bootbcd file is missing. Doesn't boot through hardware, but boots just well when I go to advanced boot menu and select the SSD option. The functioning of the laptop seems to be just as good, fast and there's no problem whatsoever after I boot through this. Then why doesn't it boot normally? Why does it say it could not find a valid OS entry?? I tried resettting the boot file. During the process I noticed that the partition with the OS is marked hidden and is a RAW partition, rather than NTFS. Since this error, I haven't been able to use Lenovo one key recovery either. I have never reinstalled/formatted a system with SSD, and am not quite sure if a clean reinstallation of Win OS would help.  What should I do? 

Answer:Windows boot error 0xc00000e9, 0xc0000098 in Lenovo U400

The moment you selected your drive to boot from start pressing F8 button, it should show you some extra boot options, where should be a repair option. Go there, it might ask you login, then there will be option to fix startup problems.

I opened it to put it to sleep again when I was greeted with a screen I didn't recognize so I restarted the computer. Now it can not move past the initial Lenovo start screen. It says to press fn+f2 for set up or fn+ f12 for.multiboot. Neither command works. The recover button brings me to this screen as well. What should I do?

I've had a persistent problem with connecting external displays via HDMI. I've tried connecting to my TV with a HDMI to HDMI cable and my laptop recognizes that a device is connected, but there is nothing on the TV. I've confirmed that it is not the TV's nor the cable's problem, because I've tested it with another laptop and it worked fine. When I plug in the cable, the screen blacks out for a second and Windows then recognizes that a display has been connected. It is as if the only problem is that there is no output.
 
I've tried:
Updating the amd graphics card driver using the drivers on the lenovo site.
Cleaning the HDMI port on the laptop.
 
(My U400 has a AMD Radeon HD 7450M graphics card.)

Answer:U400 HDMI Not Working

Hi eyeh2809,
 
Thanks for Posting!
 
Can we try,
 
Set the computer as normal,
   Connect the HDMI with your external monitor, which the computer will detect the two monitors connected,
Set the computer to project the display as Duplicate first,
   If no display still, Try changing the resolution and hit apply, lower it down, try lowering it down step by step and check the display.
 
This might be an issue with resolution compatibility. see where or what resolution that the two LCD will display.
 
Let us know your findings
Cheers!

I'm coming from a macbook pro that was ruined by my little sister dropping a gallon of tea on it to this Lenovo U400. I've been falling in love ever since. Windows isn't OSX, but w/e. I love the computer as is, the only problem is that the drivers for this thing seem to be for **bleep**. Both of my 2.0 USB's stopped working about four days ago, and I just had to re-install my trackpad driver because my right click wasn't working.  I called Lenovo and asked if there were anything they could do about my USB's since the drivers arent on the main site. They told me I would have to restore the system to it's out of the box state....That sucks so f*ckin' bad. I'm writing to see if anyonone has any other ideas to help me out, and just to vent about this sh*tty situation. Peace out!!! 

Answer:U400 USB 2.0 no longer working

Since the problem occured only 4 days ago, you could try system restore,if you have a system restore point, prior to that date. That may well fix it. ?f not, Have you checked in Device Manager? Have you tried un-installing,the usb hubs(one at a time with a reboot,after EACH ONE) and have Windows reinstall them? There is also  M/soft fix for that,  http://www.askvg.com/microsoft-releases-fixit-to-diagnose-and-repair-common-usb-issues-automatically...

Hi jc,

Welcome to the Forum.

Never seen one of these before, Try right clicking on the speaker symbol in the notification area, select Playback Devices, You should be able to select the speaker device that you want to use.
Right click enable/disable Hide/unhide
Left Click will allow you to configure the device after selecting Configure
Properties will also give you some options

I hope this helps

Recently received my U400 and the microphone worked great. However, at some point during a Skype call, my partner could not hear me very well and was only able to hear static on my end.

I checked my sound setting and under the "Recording" tab, the Conexant Internal Microphone was very active and "loud" (as if I was constantly talking). I went under properties and checked "Listen to this device" and all I could hear was static. I tried talking but couldn't hear myself. Lowering microphone level didn't seem to change the amount of static I hear from my microphone. I turned off mic boosts and enhancements, but it didn't change static.

Internal microphone is set as default device. Stereo mix is similarly active and loud. Driver version is 8.54.19.0. (up to date). Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Tried uninstalling driver and letting Windows install a new driver, but problem persisted. Pretty much can't use microphone to record, but it shows that it is active and is receiving a lot of sound somehow.

What should I do?

Answer:Lenovo U400 Conexant Internal Microphone Receives Static Input

The first thing to do, since you let Windows install a sound driver, is to reinstall the Lenovo supplied sound driver. Non-Vendor supplied sound drivers usually either do not work or do not work correctly, including the windows installed generic HD audio codec driver.

Hi everyone, couple of days ago my u400 touchpad stopped working, and I am having hard times trying to fix the problem. Interesting thing that, when OS is booted up touchpad is dead completely, cursor is not moving, buttons not responding, but when you log off your account cursor start moving, but buttons don't function. I have tried reinstalling drivers (downloaded from lenovo.com), no succes. After drivers were removed, cursor started moving, but buttons did not worked though. Even made factory restore for the laptop, surprisingly nothing changed, though I noticed when in recovery mode touchpad and buttons worked! I have loaded BIOS defaults, that also did not helped. Also checked mouse setting in Windows, device is enabled. I am out of ideas, onyone have any suggestions? I do not believe that this is a hardware issue, it works in safe mode though. Thanks in advance. Ideapad U400, Windows 7 home, x64 bit.

Today, I had to use the Fn key to disable the trackpad while my cousin watched a video on the laptop, but after I turned on the trackpad it stopped working. The cursor does not move and both the hard click keys function as the Right Click. The trackpad Mouse pad, when opened does not show any pressure registeration whatsoever. I have gone through the forum but no one has had a similar problem and I have even had the driver completely deleted and reinstalled to no use.Please Help.I am still using Windows 7 since I know windows 8 might cause probelms.

Answer:U400 trackpad stopped working

Also, the pressure graph shows a continues red bar, which I presume means that the pressure pad thinks that it is being continuesly pressed.

The touchpad on my U400 has stopped working.

I have tried to have it re-install at least twice by first picking the Uninstall option, where it then requests a re-boot to complete un-installation.
Upon re-boot, it actually detects it and installs the driver and only at this point does the touchpad work again.

But, it requests another re-boot to complete the install, after which it doesn't work again.

Could this be a hardware issue? What else can I try if it is not?

If it helps, I have used two older wireless mice with it, but removed them at the un-install stage.
I'd already exchanged one, and I don't think the other laptop had this particular problem.

Thanks!

I have a Equium U400 laptop and I have never been able to get the microphone to work properly. I am running Vista 32bit which was originally installed.

The issue is that when trying to use Skype and using the test call facility, the microphone doesnt pick anything up and Skype says it is very quiet.

I then went into the microphone settings in Vista and put the volume to 100% and boost to +20 but once again quiet but if you crank the volume up you can hear the faintest of noises. Crank the gain up to +40 and you get all sorts of interference noise. I checked the skype volume settings and put it to 100% but no joy.

I tried reinstalling the drivers for both the webcam and the sound using the drivers off the toshiba website but nothing has changed.

I wonder if anyone else has had problems or if anyone know what is likely to be wrong, or is my microphone possibly broken?

Any help appreciated.

I had an similar problem? in my case it was related to dirty volume sensor.
I could clean this using an compressed air spray? possibly it was some dust between the volume wheel and the sensor? who knows? cleaning this worked.

About the touchpad:
Well, I don?t know what could cause this? are you sure its not disabled by Fn + F9 key combination? Check also the BIOS settings?not quite sure if there is an option for touchpad but many BIOS contains the on/off for touchpad?
Otherwise it could be possible that you made some mistakes while replacing this part? are all cables connected properly?

I've updated drivers for my touchpad and reinstalled the energy management program which someone pointed out controls the hot keys, all to no avail. I would really like to be able to disable the touchpad because it is so annoying to use, it sometimes glitches out and scrolling doesn't work...sometimes just by touching the touchpad it starts to type letters...?? i don't even know how the touchpad can start typing letters any help greatly appreciated!

Answer:U400 Hotkeys not working/touch pad glitchy

I also have some of these symptoms. When I move my finger down the touchpad in such a way as to use too much skin so that the touchpad does not recognize the command, the computer will often type the letter 'z' on the screen. If I move my finger sideways across the touchpad in the same manner, it will simulate hitting the Esc key. I don't believe these are intended effects of using purely the touchpad. The random Esc key pushes are extremely terrifying if it exits out of a running process.

Therefore I myself installed WinXP SP3 and all the drivers downloaded from Toshiba support page. The machine operates well, but some of the function keys, namely Fn+F1, F2, F3, F4, and Toshiba Zoom do not operate. All others are OK.

What can be the reason?

Answer:Re: Function keys not working on Satellite U400

To install drivers this is not enough. For some functions you must install the Toshiba tools from the Toshiba website.
Install the Hotkey Utilities and the Toshiba utilities.

Maybe you should also update the BIOS. You can find it on the Toshiba website:

Answer:Satellite U400 - Illumination buttons not working

Hi

What version of Toshiba Value Added Package have you tried to install?

For the Satellite U400 normally you only the VAP for the illumination buttons. Check the Toshiba website again and download the right version of VAP:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

On the Toshiba page are 4 different U400 models listed so choose the right one before you download the VAP.
And don?t forget to remove the old version first, restart the notebook and then install the new one.

What OS do you have? Are you running the factory settings?

Obviously its not everything OK if you cannot see anything on the screen?

Did you connect an external monitor to check if you would be able to see something on the external display?
Do that! Usually the FN + F5 should allow you to toggle between the internal and external monitor.
If this is not possible and nothing would be visible on 2nd monitor, the graphic card problem can cause this.

(We expected to see a stream of updates to it, given the many problems users are experiencing with USB 3.0 and as this new 'standard' settles down and yet we couldn't find anything after an exhaustive search on the net. We could not find a Satori manufacturer site either, so if anyone has found a direct vendor site, that would be helpful, if they have later drivers available there?) And/or are there other patches or hotfixes that should be applied, e.g., for th Intel chipset? We would appreciate any guidance/words from teh wise:-)! TIA! /david
