Flex 3-1120 Laptop Sound Problem

Question: Flex 3-1120 Laptop Sound Problem

Hello, My windows updated a few weeks ago and after the update I had a few issues with my touch pad and sound. I was able to roll back my touch pad driver and fix the problem but there has been no update to Realtek High Definition Audio Driver for several years so there was nothing to roll back to. The issue I have been having that my sound has been contstently going up leaving the sound bar on the screen (A picture is attach below if it helps). This has become very annoying since I have not found a way to get rid of this. So far I have tried updating and deleting then reinstalling the driver but the sound bar remains. Therefore, is there any way I can fix this? Any help will be much appreciated.Thanks,SoundMax

Hi, I just purchased a Flex 3-1120 with Windows 10 preinstalled via Lenovo.com. When I try to use the Lenovo OKR to restore the system back to the orginal state, it takes to the Windows 10 recovery options. Is this correct? Will the Windows 10 receovery option restore everything including the Lenovo preinstalled programs/apps? Thanks for your assistance!

I just got this Lenovo and when setting up, I am pretty sure I downloaded and installed the free Windows 10 upgrade.  In my program information, I only see Windows 8.1 as being installed.  When I go to microsoft browser, it says Windows 10.  How do I find product key for Windows 10.  I tried following directions on lenovo help site but it did not help. thanks for any advice.

I just received my new Lenovo Flex 3-1120 ( Model: 80LX001KUS).  As delivered, it has 32G of eMMC.  I am desirous of upgrading the machine with a Hard Drive (which I have purchased).    I have discovered that due to the fact that the stock configuration does not have a hard drive that there are two parts that are needed to house and connect the hard drive.  From Lenovo?s parts list those parts are:5B40J08368 HDD Bracket  and5C10J08424 HDD Cable As much as I have tried I cannot find any option for purchasing these parts on-line. Please advise of options to acquire.

I have a Lenovo Flex 3 1120. When I bought it, I went for the hard drive option that had the cheapest price since all the other options were HDD of various sizes and I knew I was going to upgrade to SSD anyway. The flex 3 I have though, does not have a HDD and uses an eMMC embedded storage. When I went to install the SSD, there is an empty space for where the hard drive would sit and there is no SATA connection. There is a socket in the board that is labeled "SATA conn1" but no cable.
 
I called support and was told it is possible to use the SSD and boot from it. The cable and caddy can be purchased but she said Lenovo will not supply the part. I found the part number I think,  1109-01051, but apparently no one else sells it either. There was one on ebay, but it's gone. anyone know where I can find one?

Answer:Flex 3 1120.- No SATA connection!

update: the item number is actually 5C10J08424. I still had a hard time a seller with it in stock. One website wanted about $70 for it not including shipping. I finally found/bought one on encompassparts.com for about $20 including shipping. I'll update once I get to try it out.

I have a new Flex 3 it was working fine yesterday, I shut it down last night and plugged it in, it seems to have a good charge (and I have tried it plugged in as well), but this morning it will not boot up.  I hope I don't have to take this back to BB today, any ideas?

Answer:Flex 3 -1120 wont power on

I had the same issue. it appears that a driver was installed but the system has stalled. It actually happened twice. I sent it in and they "refreshed" it and it did it again. I let the power die on it and it started back up. I don't know of a way to manually shut it down. The old way was take the battery out but its not the case here. The battery is sealed in side and I didn't want to give them a reason to void the warranty. You can charge stuff with the usb while it's unplugged, try draining the battery that way with a phone or tablet.

My battery was charging fine and then I clicked on the battery icon today to open up and the menu and it went from telling me the battery was plugged in and charging to plugged in and not charging. It was like clicking the icon turned off the charging capability. This is a brand new computer, I've only had it for a couple weeks. The battery and adapater are both okay according to OneKey Optimizer, so I can't figure out why it's not charging. Currently running Windows 10 if that helps.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 3-1120 Plugged in, not charging

Does your battery stay at about 60%?  If so, then there actually is no problem.  Lenovo Flex 3 has a feature called "Conservation Mode," which keeps the battery from charging all the way.  This will supposedly increase the lifespan of the battery, which is a good thing, since the battery isn't meant to be replaced.  If you want to charge the battery normally, just click on the battery guage on the taskbar.  You'll find the setting there.

Hi all, I've recently bought a Flex 2 pro, and I'm having some problem with the sound on it.Regularly, but with no obvious pattern, the sound goes quiet. After a moment or two it goes back to the regular volume. (Generally about the length of time it takes to turn the volume up)I've looked at all the sound settings and a similar effect is created by turning the Dolby digital enhancement off. This leads me to think that what is failing, but I can't find any instances of that online.I've reinstalled the sound card drivers (the most up to date ones), but that's been no help.Any suggestions or solutions would be great fully received.Cheers

Answer:Flex 2 pro sound issues

I have experienced a similar problem.It occurs at the start of an audio clip (never while it is already playing), almost exclusively through Chrome (although I rarely play music contained on the HD through Music Player so I can't rule it out). IMO, the sound card might be encountering difficulties switching between input sources (for ex. if I switch between tabs or go from one application to another). Symptoms: the volume stays low and the sound is somwhat distorted: the low and mid-range sounds are virtually muted out. This last anywhere between 5 seconds and a minute, and then the sound magically becomes clear again Attempted solutions:In instances where the sound doesn't begin playing normally again, restarting the laptop works.The drivers have been re-installed.

Okay first things first, I'm really sorry if I am breaking some forum rule here, and the fact that I have no idea where to put this situation category-wise. My laptop, a HP Pavalion 15-p213cl, which I believe I have had for a year or two now(I do not exactly remember...) is making some weird noise. Kind of like its vibrating. From some google searches... The problem may be because of the fan. Every time I try openin the laptop, the noise appears and it gets worse over time.Anyways I never had this kind of problem and since I'm not a tech guy... I am afraid to take this situation on based on some YouTube videos.Thanks.

I bought a Flex 14 laptop about a week ago direct off the Lenovo site. I have been troubleshooting an issue with the audio from the start. When using ear phones there is a constant high pitch white noise. And even more bothersome is an intermittent static sound. I believe the static is an issue with the wifi as it happens anytime I am transmitting data over it. Maybe something is not grounded? I have tried un/re-installing drivers. Tried using both windows and realtek drivers. Disabling the mic. Using different sets of ear phones. Raising and lower volume on any and everything I can find. Nothing will stop this issue. If I could just get this resolved I would be more than happy with this laptop.

I got this as a gift to replace an older Toshiba laptop for my girlfriend.  My biggest complaints are the screen and sound. Brightness really seems limited, which surprised me.  And the sound did not go very loud in my opinion and the quality was subpar at best. It doesn't seem like much, but it really is when you are using it. It was just annoying enough where I am most likely going to return it.  The person I got this for had some other complaints, but these two stood out the most. I suppose I should've known, for $800 you still cant get something that has everything.  But for 2015, I expected a better experience with the screen and sound. This is also the last time I buy a laptop online without using it first.

Hi there @JPMESQ, I hope you find your Support Forum experience a positive one! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you have a question about USB compatibility. I am happy to help with this. According to the USB 3.1 specification, which is referenced here: USB - wikipedia.org, "The USB 3.1 standard is backward compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0." So in terms of the connection it should work, but the performance will be limited by the slower standard. It is possible that some devices using USB 3.1, may not themselves not be backwards compatible, but that would be a case by case issue. I hope that addresses your question, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Please dont double post, it annoys the moderators . Is it possible to remove the cartridge and then put it back, making sure its in firmly. Ensure its in exactly the way it should be. Is there a bit of covering tape left on the cartridge?
If that fails, Canon customer services.

I just replaced the hard drive and both cooling fans. When the system is powered up the screen flashes between blue to black to gray to (red-green -blue-black horizontal lines) and repeats. I reset the bios still no change. I re checked all connections the board is getting power, i can push the eject on the DVD drive and it works, all fans come on just un able to get to bios screen. I tried powering up and hitting f10  repeatedly no change. There are no beeps what so ever on power up and while the system is on. The reason for the hard drive replacement was it just stopped working, but at the time I was able to at least get to the HP screen and troubleshoot the problem. I tried un plugging power to system holding the power button for five seconds, plugging back in still same problem. I can hit the print button on the keyboard and hear the computer beep, that is the only beeps i can get.

Hi,

I have been searching several websites, downloaded a lot of junk and tested a great many so called solutions. In spite of all efforts I could not find a working solution for the LBP-1120 on W7 x64.
Although I guess most LBP-1120 users got tired of searching and simlpy threw away their printer, I refuse to do that. So I'm running it on Virtual PC under W7 x64, a complicated afair if one has to print just a few copies. The latest thread on this (and most other forums) is of 2009, so did anything happen after that date?
Does any one know of a working (tested!)driver solution for this printer? It's a shame that Cannon did not provide a decent driver. The vista / W7 x64 does not run on x64 platforms in any mode! Even for old Epsons I was able to find W7 x64 drivers.

Kind regards,
Dave

Answer:Driver for Canon LBP-1120 Lasershot on W7 x64

First, make sure you uninstall any previously installed printer drivers in add/ remove programs which may conflict with the installation.

Check Device Manager for driver issues.

Select the newest version from the list. Then click download.

Do not turn on the printer until the software is installed.

Answer:Flex 2 14 laptop hinge

Hello there,
I bought it a month ago a Lenovo Flex 2 14 ". Computer is very good. Except I just found out I have a broken hinge! Knowing that I take great care of my computer! he never fell, it had no impact. I suspect the way back to the problem screen. hinge was dislocated in a first time and then returned to the user screen it made pressure which broke the corner. so I phoned Lenovo France who told me that the repairs would be at my expense ... This is my first Lenovo and I am very disappointed ...
Sorry for the google translation.

Bonjour,
J'ai acheté il y a un mois un Lenovo Flex 2 14". L'ordinateur est très bon. Sauf que je viens de découvrir que j'ai une charnière de cassée! Sachant que je prend le plus grand soin de mon ordinateur! Il n'est jamais tombé, il n'a eu aucun choc. Je soupçonne le mode écran retourné à l?origine du problème. La charnière s'est déboité dans un première temps puis avec le mode écran retourné ça a fait pression d?où le coin cassé. J'ai donc téléphoné à Lenovo France qui m'a indiqué que les réparations serait à mes frais... C'est mon première ordinateur Lenovo et je suis très déçu...

Answer:HP laptop No sound problem

Doublecheck the BIOS for the sound option. It may be listed as "legacy" audio controller, integrated audio, etc. If there is a BIOS reset option, you could also try that as generally the audio is enabled in the default settings.

Also, reinstall the Intel motherboard chipset drivers and then see if you can install the IDT. The chipset drivers define (identify) all the devices on the motherboard.

Hi. I am having problems with the sound on my laptop. It keeps keeps cutting out whenever I am loading games. The game in question is Sims 3, the only one I have installed at present so I can't test it with anything else. Saved games take a long time to load with this game, and I am quite used to the sound cutting out a few minutes before loading finishes, so at first I thought nothing of it. But when it had loaded I found there was still no sound. Game problem? No, because when I closed the game down I found the computer had no sound at all!

I ran troubleshooting but it couldn't identify the problem. Restarting the computer doesn't help either. How can I get my sound back and keep it back?

My sound is not working at all and I can't figure out the problem.

HP DV6810 Laptop
Vista Home premium

Symptom: Sound does not come through speakers or headphone jack. The "speaker" in the system tray has a red x.

I tried opening the mixer but it is greyed out. I checked the device manager and there are only drivers for bluetooth. (I'm not sure what those are for). I deleted those drivers and rebooted the computer. The system recognized the sound card but only installed the bluetooth drivers again.

Can someone give me some guidance?

Hello all,

My laptop (gateway 400 vtx) sound stopped working suddenly last week. I was watching a youtube video, paused it came back about 5 minutes later and the sound was not working anymore. Coincidentally, a Windows update had started during that 5 minutes. I have tried to plug in headphones and external speakers and nothing seems to be working.

I have checked to make sure that the volume was not muted or set at a really low volume, also that my sound "card" (sigma tel c-audio) was the default sound device. Checked in Device Manager and there were no conflicts under the Sound, Video, and Game Controllers. When i Clicked Showed hidden devices, there was one Under the Non-Plug and Play Devices, it is (Serial and has a yellow circle) if that helps.

Also did a system restore to the previous day before the sound stopped working, to no avail. I have updated all of the drivers (sound, usb, chipset) that are on gateway support page. I even tried the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, which under Sound 1 & 2, i heard no sound, but under music i heard somewhat of a beat but only when the volume was Maxed out nothing when at mid level. but it sounded like a "blown speaker".

Any Other Information that you May Need, I'll be more than happy to provided.

I am running Windows Xp SP3

Thanks in Advanced.
 

Answer:Laptop Sound Problem

I would remove the everything under sound, and reload the sound drivers from the cd that should have come with the laptop. Barring that, go to Gateway's website and download them again.

I bought a new Fujitsu Amilo A1650 laptop a month ago. I noticed there was a problem with the sound when using Skype or Messenger for voice calls: after one minute of sound working fine, the person I was talking stopped hearing my voice, and started receiving "metallic" disturbance sound instead.

At first I thought it might be a Skype/Messenger problem and updated both programs, checked Firewall settings etc. but the problem persisted gradually getting worse (at the moment the disturbance in the sound starts after 20-30 seconds). I replaced the webcam as well, thinking it was the mic in the webcam that was faulty, but it did not solve the problem either (I am using Logitech's Notebook Dluxe with USB connection). I have not been able to test the problem with a headset that connects to the heaphone and mic "ports" but I doubt it would make a difference.

I have updated drivers for my sound card, removed it totally and reinstalled, tested the voice with my laptop's Voice Recording function and Control Panels Voice -> Test hardware function. When I used the Voice Recording, for example, the sound was fine for the first 30 secs but then this awful noise started!

I do not have to restart my computer to achieve another 30 sec stint of the sound/voice working.

Fujitsu support has been hopeless and the ask me to reinstall Windows XP not offering any explanations for the problem. Any ideas? Tips?

Thank you!

If you already reinstalled the correct drivers then what they suggested is the next step. The amount of time you have spent calling them and making this post is more then the time needed to reinstall XP. It is after all the fix all,,,sorry its the time's we live in.

I don't understand why people don't want to do this, Its easy and fool proof. If your answer to this is you don't want to lose anything then you should always back up your data. You should never become attached to install of xp ,, NEVER!

EDIT - You could always buy one of THESE if for some crazy reason you didn't want to reinstall or if there is phsically something wrong with the onboard sound chip.

Go into your menu and look closely at the Audio options. Look to see if it states in is Analog in or Digital in. Not for certain but would bet you problem lies in the way it is looking for an audio signal when in the VGA or PC video input mode.

Hi, I've been having problem's with my laptops sound since yesterday, I haven't uninstalled any of the drivers. I've also rebooted allowing Windows Update's to install and have searched for new driver updated for the sound. None of these seem to be the issue and my laptop picks up that the Sound is there and that the drivers are up to date.

When I fiddle with the Volume icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen to adjust the volume, it doesn't detect there being any sound there, but if I click on Sounds, Playback, Speakers, Enhancements then Preview, it makes a sound, also that sound does adjust with whatever volume I place it at.

Also when clicking on Advanced in the same section, and then clicking Test, I also get a Sound. But, if I go back to Sounds, then click the Sounds tab, and click one or more of those to test, I get no sound again.

Windows Live Messenger's notice toasts sounds, are hearable, but things such as videos on the interweb, aren't.


..Any ideas?

Also, I did download TweakVista the previous day (When my sound was fine.) and uninstalled it, and for some reason it wiped all my restore points, and changed a lot of settings such re enabling my UAC.

Hello,

I bought a laptop through the catalogue - ACE and it was listed as a Qmultimedia laptop. It does not have a particular make or model anywhere on the laptop and after trying to get help from ACE regarding this problem I am having with the sound, they have been no use at all.

The trouble is when I go to the control panel and I click on "Sounds and Audio", everything is faded out. I go to the device manager and under sounds it says:

-Audio Codecs
-Legacy Audio Drivers
-Legacy Video Capture Devices
-Media Control Devices
-Video Codecs

All of them say they are working fine. Why might the sound be all faded out in the control panel? I have a microphone symbol just above the laptop mousepad so surely that means I can get sound?

The problem is not knowing what make the laptop actually is. Can someone please help me?

Answer:I have problem with sound on my laptop

Hi Mieza,

I had the same problem with XP (No Sound) at all after Win 8 pro Upgrade..
Thing is I looked that hard I forgot the link Page.

This is the Microsoft (Hotfix) link, but like I said can't remember the site.
Hotfix link..(http://hotfixy4.microsoft.com/Windows%
20XP/latest/UAA HD Audio OOB release/5011/free/198658 intl i386 zip exe

You Download Hotfix, It will upload to your C:/ drive.
Goto settings..Device manager..Network controller, in their you
will see (Update Driver) click (Update Driver) and if will install (Xear 3D) CMI Audio.

You should. have all bells ringing.

I also have no (Wifi) Win 8 knocked out my (Creatix 802 11g) Driver.
Cant find a replacement yet.

I Have the zip folder on my deasktop, if any moderator can tell me how
to upload it, (198658_int zip).

BF.

I have a Compaq laptop on which the sound card has died. I have been in contact with Compaq and they can do nothing for me.

I was hoping to get a PCMCIA sound card, but they seem to be an extinct item. Does anyone have any ideas? I have WindowsME on the computer.

Thanks -
Karen

It's a Compaq presario 700 laptop, XP SP2 home edition, 486mb ram AmD athalon and for some reason just recently the sound is not working right.
If I'm playing a music file the sound that comes out is all broken up.
This just started happening within the last week and I did uninstall (delete) the sound drivers and when I rebooted they re-installed, but I have the same problem.
Any suggestions?
 

Answer:Problem with my sound on laptop.....FIX?

Are your speakers built in? Try other speakers or headphones. Check to see if you get the bad sound from a CD as well.

I got the Lenovo Flex 3 15 as a gift. A few things that bothered me and the one I gave it to were the screen, sound, and mouse pad. Screen quality was good, except it did not seem to get bright enough. When watching a show on Netflix, it was darker than it shouldve been despite having brightness all the way up. The resolution was good except everything seemed too small. I was able to adjust that, but while things were bigger, everything was a tiny bit blurry. The sound was very disappointing. Quality was poor and it did not get loud enough. Lastly, the touch pad was just way too slick. Too easy to slide your finger around on.
Now I guess you get what you pay for. But the laptop performance wise was great. I dont know why they couldnt make the screen go brighter or beef up the sound. Its 2015. People expect to stream music/movies. Good sound now should be standard.
So now I am returning it. But have no idea what to get in its place. The person who is receiving this doesnt game. Basically a casual user but uses the laptop for music/movies/shows also. Id like to get something with a decent screen size, and doesnt weigh a ton. Something that can be upgraded to Windows 10. Any ideas? Looking to spend about $800

Answer:Looking for a laptop after disappointment with Lenovo Flex 3 15

Well you could get the surface 3 128gb model, keyboard and pen for $700 with a student discount.
Other options would be - if you had to buy it from Microsoft Store:
1) Acer R 13 Buy Acer Aspire R 13 R7-371T Signature Edition 2 in 1 PC - Microsoft Store
2) ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi Buy ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi Signature Edition 2 in 1 PC - Microsoft Store
I'm sure you'll find plenty of other options if you to shopped around on manufacturer websites - for example
ASUS ZENBOOK UX305FA @ $849.
The Inspiron 15 7000 series i7 Model @ $799 (base)
The base model for the Lenovo Yoga 2 is at $599.

Hi, I have recently purchased a Flex 2-15 Laptop, with Windows 8.1. After about a day of using it, the pop up for Windows 10 upgrade appeared, and I upgraded the machine. Since the upgrade, everything is working fine - however, I can't see the CD/DVD player in my computer or the device manager (with hidden items enabled). However, there is power to the CD/DVD player as I can open and close it without an issue. To make things worse, i can't enter the BIOS now, as when I restart the device and keep Fn+F2 pressed the laptop simply opens up into the Windows login page each time.  I looked at the user manual and tried to see the Novo button on the side of my laptop but there is no button, just a pin hole, which can't be depressed with a ball point pen end!! I am really regretting this purchase now, so I would be grateful if someone could come back to me with a suggestion as to how I can fix this. I tried to apply the regedit fix for this on the internet, but can't see Upperlimits or Lowerlimits. I also tried searching for the drivers for the CD drive (mat**bleep**a dvd-ram uj8fbs driver) but that was a dead end as I'm going to random 'maware' sites!! Please help!!

Hey guys, im new to this communtiy and aint exactly educated when it comes to laptops!!I've just bought a brand new Lenovo Flex 15D and its probably a tad slower than my previous 5 year old laptop! I'm assuming that the lack of speed is down to the weak AMD E1 proccessor thats sitting inside... so my question is does anyone know if its possible to upgrade this proccessor or not? Any other suggestions on why the laptop is slow would be greatly appreciated!Thanks in advance!

Hello, I am attempting to connect my Leap Motion to this laptop. However, it seems like the USB ports are not producing enough power as the Leap Motion keeps telling me to reconnect every so often. I have tried it with a total of 3 other different laptops and the Leap Motion runs normal. Any suggestions? Is there a way to check exactly how much power my ports are passing throuhg? Or Has this happened to someone? The leap motion requires usb 2.0 ports +..  I am confused as why this laptop is having issues. Anything helps. Thank you, Abi

My Flex 3 laptop is only 4 months old. I went to power it on. I can see the LEDs in the keyboard light up, the power button light up and the battery light lights up. However, nothing displays on the screen. I can see that there is power to the screen because it lights up, but nothing is displayed. I tried connecting the laptop to my TV through an HDMI cord to see if it would display there and still nothing. I've tried turning it on bother on battery power and connected to AC adapter with same results. Any suggestions? I did a google search and saw where it was recommended to open up the laptop, disconnect the battery and wait a minute and reconnect. I wanted to just find out if there were any other solutions.

LENOVO 80R3 Flex 3-1480 Display keeps shutting off at random times. I have already reinstalled Windows and shut off everything I could find in Windows that pertains to sleep mode or hibernation - I'll be in the middle of something and the display will go black and I am forced to hard reboot the laptop to bring it back. I have installed all the latest Microsoft updates - this is Windows 10 Version 1607 (build 14393.1066).

MY computer had been acting very slow for a while and nothing would start up, and if it did it would take literrally five minutes. Now it will not go to start up screen and it will stay on a black screen. I can move the mouse and I can see the mouse arrow, but no matter how long I wait, it just stays there. Any ideas on what to do?

Hello, I recently purchased Lenovo Flex 5 (14") laptop (Part Number:  80XA0011US). This comes with 16.0GB DDR4 2133 MHz and 1TB 5400 RPM+128GB PCIe SSD.  My question is as follows: Can I upgrade the Hard Drive to more capacity like 256 GB SSD or 512 GB SSD in future? If yes, can I get this done via Lenovo Support or do I need to do it on my own? Basically, I just want to know if the System provides me the ability to upgrade Hard Drive - both HDD and SSD.
