Answer:Drivers Dolby Home Theater v4 for windows 7

hi Jalari,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
For  Dolby Home Theater v4 to work, it must match the required version by the Realtek Audio Driver. If this was working before, try one of the following:
 
1. Rollback the driver
  - open Device Manager, navigate to Sound, video, and game controllers
  - right click on Realtek HD Audio > choose Properties. On the "Driver" tab, hit Rollback Driver then reboot.
 
2. Re-install both Realtek HD Audio and Dolby Home Theater
  - open Control Panel (large icon view) > Programs and uninstall Realtek HD Audio and Dolby
  - open Device Manager, navigate to Sound, video, and game controllers
  - right click on Realtek HD Audio and choose uninstall (check the box that says "delete driver software") then reboot.
  - download and install  Realtek Audio Driver v6.0.1.6559, reboot the PC and test
  - if the Dolby Home Theater v4 interface is missing, navigate to C:\Drivers folder.
 -  on the drivers folder, navigate to the Realtek HD Audio then Dolby GUI folder and Install the Dolby Advanced Audio.

My friend accidentally uninstalled my audio driver so I went to lenovo's website and redownloaded the realtek high definition audio device driver.  The install went well and my speakers finally work, however, I have lost the functionality of the Dolby Home Theater Surround Sound feature (accessible by the button to the right of the Desktop Navigator).  Does anyone have any ideas how I could remedy this problem?  Any way I can re-enable the Dolby software which is now completely absent from my computer?

Has anyone gotten this working?  If so, what driver did you use?  I've had it working via Media Center and via the start/search menu, but never got it to launch from the Dolby touch-sensitive button.  Also, it seems to hang the system shortly after login, so I've had to remove it.  Has anyone had any luck with this?

Answer:Dolby Control Center - Y430 - Windows 7 64-bit

The Lenovo support site has a driver listed for Windows 7 32-bit but it is actually for both 32-bit and 64-bit of the Windows 7 operating system. The Dolby Control Center will be installed along with the appropriate driver. Click here. You will need to use the following Lenovo Energy Management driver because the one listed for the Y430 is only 32-bit. Click here.

hi, I just recently purchased a y430 laptop and I am having trouble with the Digital Output (S/PDIF) function of the Dolby Home Theater program.  I used it once to output a signal to my stereo with an RCA to 3.5 mm TRS connector. Since then, however, every time I select Digital Output from the drop down menu in the Dolby Home Theater program (other choices being Stereo Speakers and Headphones) a message that reads "Image Missing: Dolby5_Dimension-1" shows up in red over the application and no sound comes out. I realize that this form of output is intended for Dolby Home Theater Systems but I wanted to test it anyway. Does anyone know what this message means? Is this a known error, and if not, what should I do as a next step? Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks, sfili

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...

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.

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?

I tried to install [email protected] on a few Toshiba laptops, but it needs a newer Catalyst driver than the latest available on Toshiba's website (their drivers not being updated since March). This page said that "Some OEM and some laptop vendors modify the Catalyst drivers that ship with their cards" and recommends just downloading from ATI's site. Is there any technical disadvantage or pitfall in doing that if the driver's custom? I'm guessing it would be unsupported by Toshiba, at least.
 

Answer:OEM-provided drivers versus vanilla graphics drivers?

Be sure to read the release notes for the driver and make certain that it supports your model. If not, look in the archives and find an older one.

Usually, the standard ATI driver will work on an OEM machine. It's not unusual for the manufacturer's site to post only the driver they shipped with the machine. But you can always roll back if it does not work as desired (an option in Device Manager).

I did find this one "Inspiron 15R SE 7520" If that is your model then the Dell website has Windows 7 64bit drivers and Windows 8 64 bit drivers available for download.

I would use the Windows 7 Drivers for windows 7, Just download them ahead of time and burn them to a CD or store on a flash drive so you will have them handy to use.

I would also have my Antivirus ready to install before I went on the Internet.

3rd point. Windows will prevent you from formatting the drive it is installed on. So you have to do it during the install process.

Hi all,

So long story short I purchased an hp dv7 about 4 years ago and the hard drive crashed the other day. I purchased a new hard drive and installed Windows. However after the installation was finished I found myself at my desk to with no drivers or ability to connect to the Internet

I have the disk provided by hp when I first purchased the laptop that contains the drivers, but when I go into device manager and direct them to the cd, it says cannot be found. There is also no executable in the files of the cd.

I am running Windows 7 ultimate.

Hopefully someone can help me out!

One option is to connect to the internet using a wired connection, and then run Windows Update -- it should find the bulk of the drivers required.

When you install XP, does it detect your motherboard and install appropriate drivers, or does it come equipped with a generic driver that works on all motherboards?

The reason I'm asking: I'm upgrading to a new computer, but I'd like to continue to use my old hard drive. The problem is that I can't boot to it since it's using the motherboard drivers from the old computer. Is it possible to revert to the default drivers, switch computers, and install the new ones? Could I boot in safe mode and install them, or would they not overwrite the old ones? I know I could just reinstall Windows, but that would mean clearing out the registry, and I really don't want to reinstall all of my programs, let alone lose all of my settings.

Please help!

Why hasn't LENOVO produced any Windows 7 x64-bit drivers for the Y430? I'm still a customer of LENOVO even though I have an older machine.  I bought my laptop with the understanding that it would be supported with software drivers.  Windows 7 was known to be in the works when I bought my laptop so why hasn't LENOVO been busy developing drivers for this platform?  My decision to purchase future LENOVO products is directly related to this support issue.  NO DRIVERS - NO FUTURE CUSTOMER!

Hi and welcome to MG's,
to create a wireless enviroment with that router you will need to have a wireless router to connect to the ethernet port and disable dhcp in the wireless router, would be a lot easier if you bought a wireless modem router that you can just input your isp's settings.

Hi,

I'm new to 7 and need some help. I've got myself a nice laptop for work and leisure packed with power. The problem is I get program crashes and bsod when I seem to push it a bit (no overheating).

It started with crashes while running benchmark softwares. 3d mark 11 got always stuck at the physx tests. I've installed the latest nvidia 560m drivers (specific for this card) and same issue.

Rebuilt pc once more. Played a bit of leagues of legend (not your tough to run app...) and got random game crashes.

Today and it's a bit why I got the laptop in the first place, I got on Star Wars the Old republic. Looks great with that powerful pc but again I get random app crash (either at launch or in game). And of course sometimes I get the dreaded bsod.

I enclose the folder obtained following the "bsod instruction".

Help me you're my only hope

Answer:BSOD - brand new laptop rebuilt with provided set of drivers

I've been meaning to do this for a while, but hadn't because I hadn't had the time. But tonight, I'm not doing anything and figured it would be a good idea to do it since I have some free time. My computer has been running really slow, for a while now. I don't know what caused it or anything. It takes a while for the computer to boot up on start up, and takes a while for the desktop itself to load. When you get on the internet, it takes about 2 minutes to load the IE itself along with the page contents. Sometimes when you have a window up such as IE and go to open some thing like a program up at the same time, it takes twice as long to load. I don't have idea what's wrong with it at all.

Hello, I'm new to the forums and I'm not that computer savvy. My husband is with the older stuff but this is out of his range of knowledge currently. I reccently bought a Lenovo IdeaPad Y430 preinstalled with Windows Vista. I currently have the power settings to never turn off the display and never go to sleep while the computer is plugged in. It is almost always plugged in as I use it as a desktop replacement. However, every few minutes the screen turns black anyway. It resumes immediately with no interruption when I move the mouse or hit a key. This is beginning to really, really drive me crazy because I can't read through a webpage or a pdf without fighting to keep the screen up. It does only do it when I haven't touched it for a few moments. It's not that it's going to my screensaver, it does that normally at the specified time so I'm really just at a loss. This is making me so frustrated I'm close to sending it back and using my old Net Vista again...  













Solved!

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad Y430 screen turns black frequently regardless of power settings

Are you changing the settings on Vista power management or Lenovo power management? If you have the Lenovo power management software installed, this overrides settings set in Vista power management. To set the screen options for Lenovo power management, double-click on the "Energy Management" icon on the lower right-hand side of the screen. Double-click on the current power plan. You will see two options, one is "Turn off screen backlight" and the other is "Turn off screen display". Change the current setting to "Never". Let us know if this helps.

I've always been a fan of sticking with the provided, lightweight (no control panels, interfaces, start-up items, etc.), drivers that Vista/7 gives you and only install new drivers if it doesn't provide one for you, or if you are correcting a stability issue. Typically I just upgrade my GPU drivers and my audio driver (to unlock the hidden stereo recorder) and that's it. With XP there usually wasn't a choice but to install the newest drivers since it did not provide many.

Well I recently read an article on Toms that was comparing 7 to XP on a small notebook PC. They said that with the drivers 7 provided for the platform they had significant performance issues and that by upgrading to the newest Vista drivers, it corrected this.

Lets not talk about GPU drivers in this because we all know you need new gpu drivers. Also, I want to focus on comparing 'updated/downloaded' drivers VS. the ones provided by the OS. I'm not interested in comparing different downloaded versions because that is not what this is about.
Do you only upgrade non-gpu drivers for what does not have a driver, and using the provided for everything else or do you upgrade everything?

Have any of you noticed significant performance increases or decreases by updating non-gpu drivers?

Hi all.I figured I would post this issue. I recently did (another) re-install of my Windows 7 Professional OS from a Windows OEM DVD. I noticed that when I attempted to install the Intel HD 4600 Video Graphics drivers from the Lenovo site, I got an error saying "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software." I have the dual-video graphics system (Intel HD 4600 & NVIDIA GeForce 730M) T540p Lenovo package. In order to install the NVIDIA mobile chipset drivers, you must first install the Intel drivers which fails to run.Resolution:  Download and install the Intel HD 4600 drivers from Intel's website, install, and reboot. Once installed the NVIDIA drivers can then be installed.Hope this saves people some headaches in the future. Thanks.

As a rule of thumb you should always use the graphics drivers straight from the source (ATI/AMD/Intel/Nvidia). Out of date drivers can cause huge problems.

I have a W530, and Win7 Pro x64, and the Dolby Home Theater software is provided through Lenovo's Realtek sound driver package. It is not included in Realtek's standard retail driver package so you can't use a Realtek-provided driver to do a "driver install/upgrade". You need to stick with whatever Lenovo provides.
 
Anyway, I find it most easy to hear a difference in the Dolby Home Theater EQ presets (after pushing the "settings" gear to get the full UI to appear) when using headphones, not using the speakers on the PC.  Checking the different EQ presets changes which "EQ frequency envelope picture " is highlighted, and DOES alter the sound.

Answer:Dolby Home Theatre V4

hi Jaycee70,
 
   The Dolby Home Theater technology on these models are attatched to the Sound Device(Realtek or Conexant).
Your USB Speakers might not be a normal speakers but an External Sound Device.
    Verify this by opening Sound properties window.
            Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Sound
              It should  look like this, under Playback Tab
                 
 
If your USB speaker is a  being  detected as another sound device, It will appear here,
that way the Dolby will not be able to communicate and thats why it is turning off.

Answer:Dolby Home Theatre V4 help

Hi narchambault,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
First, Make sure you don't have any third party Dolby Installer by doing this
    Windows 7
 
Open My Computer / C: Drive and on the upper right corner of the window use the search box and type Dolby
    Any Dolby file that shows up Delete them
 
WIndows 8
    Hit Windows key + W to open a search type Dolby then delete any Dolby file hat shows up.
 
Once Cleared proceed to the next step.
 
 
Download and install This Driver depending on your Windows Version
    Windows 7  Conexant Audio Driver
    Windows 8  Conexant Audio Driver
 
Now to install Dolby
 
For Windows 7
    Open My Computer / C: Drive and in the upper right portion of the windows you will find a search box, type Dolby
You should find the Installer, like this,
Spoiler (Highlight to read)
 
Install that and you should be good to go,
  Disregard the Advanced Audio If you system preloaded is Home theatre, then Home theater is what will show up.
 
Hope this helps,
Cheers!

I upgraded to Windows 7 Pro and can't seem to find drivers for my dolby speakers, they run but I cant open up that nifty little window that I unfortunately have a hardware button dedicated to. SlideNav and onekey recovery are suffering from similar issues but atleast they don't light up to remind me that hey I don't do anything more. I need something to fix at least my dolby button, any suggestions?

I have an idea centre A720 that is a week old. The sound was not good so I tried looking at the drivers and updated the drivers. Now I have no sound and the Dolby driver has gone. The Red Cross on the task bar states that "no audio hardware is available". I tried playing a Blue Ray disc and an audio CD but neither will play let alone give me any sound.This is a nightmare.Can anyone help. I am trying a system restore to try and go back to the system state of 3 days ago to see if that helps.Not good from a brand new product that will be going back unless I can resolve this quickly.

Answer:No audio or Dolby drivers

hi kdunckley,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Can you try to:
1. Go to Control Panel > Programs and make sure any signs of Realtek / Dolby programs are uninstalled and reboot
2. Install the sound driver below:
 
Realtek Audio Driver V6832h1100540.exe132 MB
 
3. When you get the sound back, reconfigure Dolby by going to Control Panel (large icon view) > Dolby Home Threater and tweak the equalizer settings.
 
If you're still not satisfied with the built-in stereo speakers (3 watt x 2), you will need to get an external speakers for high quality sound.
 
 
 
Hope this helps

and i dont have any of them! can someone please tell me where to download all these? please! even if it is not drivers from windows 7,please tell me where to download them

Answer:6935 dolby drivers

Hi there avishaan and welcome to Seven Forums.

Not sure, but perhaps you'll find your drivers here: Acer Aspire 6935 / 3935G Windows 7 Drivers | Laptop Software

The problem seems to be that the dolby drivers are bundeled with their software. So your best bet would be contacting Acer directly

I have problem with OneKey Theater. As far as I know it contains dolby home theater v3. When I change OneKey Theater mode from normal to movie left channel is playing louder(speakers or headphones). I can't find any settings for Dolby home theater or OneKey Theater to adjust it. When I change voice levels in Realtek HD Audio driver or windows after I made it balanced right channel has more bass(is muffled) and left has more sopranos. That doesn't solve my problem Intelligence mode also doesn't help - same problem with sound. Only normal mode works fine.any ideas? how can I fix it?? ps. I have just reinstalled both drivers still same problem.edit. I have Y560

Answer:Dolby Home Theater v3 problem

hey erisen,curious, after uninstalling both drivers.. have you check the sound quality of the Y560 when windows installed its generic sound drivers ?was the right channel muffled ? was the left channel still louder?

Why isn't the Theature package supported on the T520's and such even though the audio driver is the same for it. The Dobly Theater won't install. PCEE needed it says.I tried it for the heck of it just to see since my sound it pretty bad quality for everything expect beeps and alerts. Its the worst audio in any notebook I've seen and owned and worked on. That is alot of notebooks and dozens of brands as well.

Answer:Why isn't Dolby Home Theater available for the T520

Maybe it's not supported because T420 has Conexant CX20672 codec chip and T530 has Realtek ALC3202?..

Want to know if I can somehow set Dolby to work at start up and be the default sound system. At the moment it is a 5 click process and can only be enabled via Realtek properties. Im sure there must be a way if anyone has the answer I would be very grateful.

Hi,Have a DVD-R drive installed with no analog or digital audio cable. The sound from CDs or DVDs somehow comes through anyway through the ribbon cable, running XP.Have an Audigy 2 sound card hooked to my home theater receiver using a mono 1/8" plug to RCA plug cable between the digital out on the sound card and digital in on the receiver.Getting excellent stereo sound from the receiver this way. From what I've read, I should be able to get Dolby Digital on DVDs passed through the sound card to be decoded by the receiver using this hookup and PowerDVD to play DVDs. No Dolby Digital is being detected by the receiver.Think it would do the trick if I added a digital audio cable between the DVD-R drive and the sound card? I think there is a hookup for a digital cable on the back of the DVD-R drive. No hookup for a standard analog audio cable though. Anything else I might be doing wrong?Thanks MUCH for any help!!!  Roy

Answer:Dolby 5.1 to home theater receiver?

your sound card can decode the Dolby Digital sound by itself , the sound it send out is already decoded, and all you have to do is hook it up to a digital amp
