Ideapad U310 Sound Issues

Q: Ideapad U310 Sound Issues

Hi all,I've been having some sound issues with my Ideapad U310 for a while now, and any help would be appreciated. Initially, no sound came out of the speakers, but if I plugged heaphones into the audio jack I could still hear sound through the headphones. Unfortunately, now there is no sound from either the speakers or the headphones. To address this, I've tried disabling sound enhancements through playback devices. I've tried installing the latest drivers for Intel Display Audio and Conexant Smart Audio HD. I've also attempted deleting these drivers (both together, then one at a time) and then installing manually/letting Windows install them. Unfortunately the nearest factory reset goes back to a time when the sound was not working. None of this appears to work. I'm wondering it whether it could be a hardware issue, since the USB drive next to the audio jack does not work either and what with the headphones initially still working. I'm running Windows 10, 64 bit. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Howe are you?I accidently deleted factory installed Windows program preinstalled on my computer.is there anyway you can send me a link to down load? it is Windows 7 and I can provide serial# if necessary.

A:Ideapad U310 factory reset

Hi kimuh72 ,
 
 
Welcome to the Community.
 
Keep your Serial number confidential.
Did you clean install windows reformatting the entire harddrive before or just an in place install?
Did you manage to create a recovery media before?
 
The factory image resides on a hidden partion on the harddrive and can only be restored on the depot facility.
 
No harm on trying if it is still working right .
Turning off your pc , then press the Novo key (page 28) ,
System recovery on the menu
 
You may order your Recovery media set by calling support  
Check your warranty coverage specially if the harddrive broke for repair . 
Else,  you can download windows 
OEM product key would be the challenge , you can try using tools to extract it if needed.
For the drivers needed , its all free for download. 
 
Hope this post helped you and gave you idea to proceed.
Just reply back and let us know how it goes. 
 
Regards,

I have a Levovo Ideapad U310, PN 59351642, 13.3" Ultrabook. When the power button is pressed, I can hear the CPU fan was on but there was nothing on the screen. I verified that the disk is working. I can attach the disk to my external drive and it is working file. I suspect that the mother board is bad. But I need to confirm this before ordering a mother board replacement. There are other components such as the LCD screen or the CPU itself might be bad. When I turned on the power, I tried to enter the BIOS set up utility by pressing Fn-F2 but there was still nothing on the screen and there was no sounds or beeps. I have tried the "onekey rescue" but this also did not work. Are there any other tests that I can perform to be certain that the mother board is bad and all other components are still okay? Any helps / suggestions are greatly appreciated. Ken

A:Ideapad U310 Motherboard Problems

Same here. Mobo is faulty. Symptoms are- press power and caps lock flashes once- front battery light is on and funtions normally (flashing amber for charging, white for charged)- front power light is white, as normal- power on button is on, as normal- nothing on screen, no backlight, completely black My part number ends with a 7, meaning i5 CPU - so it's not a CPU specific issue but a common issue between models, meaning motherboard or something on the board like the GPU.

Hey everyone, I got a new ideapad U310 this weekend. I'm very happy with it, accept for the fan. It seems to go fast for no reason. I found some old topics on this forum, one with a bios update, but it does not seem to work anymore on the current bios version unfortunately. Can anyody please help me? The fan noise is very annoying and after 2 days of working with the ideapad I rather have it turned off to get rid of the noise than continue working on it.

Hello Lenovo,I'm a business management student from India.I purchased Lenovo Ideapad U310 Touch model this May from the US (through Amazon) and have been using it without any issues till the last month. Last month I noticed that the hinge had developed tension and there was additional pressure on the lid or the screen area while closing. I thought it would be a routine issue and took it to my college's hardware repair center, but they suggested I handle the issue via Lenovo Support as it required opening the laptop.When I checked Lenovo support through customer care (India), I was told that the U series is not covered by International warranty. But I checked if the Lenovo service center would still have a look at the issue, to which I was told that it would be chargeable. I thought it was fair enough and took the laptop to the service center in Jamshedpur this afternoon.To my utter disappointment, the technician was unable to open up the area near the screen (where the problem was supposedly), but he also got the screen cracked while trying to. Now I'm left with a laptop that cannot be used as even though the screen display is intact, the touch sensors detect screen touch near the cracked area and keep the cursor rooted to that point. Also, the issue with the hinge could also not be fixed. All to add to the woes, I will have to manage a few days (don't know how many) without a laptop and also shell out the expense from my pocket!Now my question is, will the screen for Ideapad...

Hello, I have had a U310 Touch for over three years now and I have recently discovered that after the upgrade to Windows 10 the BIOS is now nonexistant. When I run the command prompt to identify the BIOS it is blank where it should show which version I have. When pressing the NOVO button I receive the option screen to boot to BIOS or Boot Management screen but no matter what option I select the OS boots regularly. Is there any known solutions for this. When searching the drivers and downloads section with the computer in question no BIOS files appear. Thanks

A:DISPLAY PROBLEM Ideapad U310 Touch

Hi DILEMMA123,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As I understand that you are facing issues with your Ideapad U310 touch display, however when you power on the unit there is power but  no display and the screen remains black.
 
Here are the troubleshooting steps that you may try
Please do try these troubleshooting steps that may help. - Start by doing a hard reboot, remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds then try booting it up again. - If this will not work, do test the AC adapter if it's working properly. Remove the battery and power the laptop with just the AC adapter connected and see if it will boot up or not. do also try a different AC adapter that has the same voltage and see if it will work or not. - Proceed with reseating the RAM's if trying a different AC adapter will not work, remove them all for couple of seconds then put them back in making sure everything is seated properly. - If it will still not work, connect an external monitor and see if you'll get any display from it. If there's a display on the external monitor that could mean that the problem is the built in display.  - But if there's still no display on the external monitor that means the problem lies in the motherboard.
In addition, here are further service centers that you can also check
I hope the above information helps.

hi dharamc,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Have you tried checking this issue under the BIOS mode.
  Power ON the computer and start hitting F2.
 
If the problem is visible under BIOS, then don't mind the driver as the problem might be the GPU or the LCD screen.
  to isolate the issue further you can use an external monitor.
 
If the problem is not visible under an external monitor, then you have a problem with the GPU
 
Let us know your findings
Cheers!

Microsoft rarely mandates a roll back to a previous version of Windows... if you received a notification via email or by phone that told you to roll back to an earlier release of Windows OS it may have been a scam or virus (trojan horse) attack on your computer.  I would strongly suggest scanning the computer for virus / malware with a top notch anti-malware suite such as Malwarebytes as soon as possible.
 
Also - to restore your system to factory specifications / software state you will need recovery disks.  If you did not make them when you first set up your notebook, or have misplaced them they still may be available to purchase from Lenovo Support.
 
Good Luck.

 I have a Lenovo ideapad 320 15.6" Laptop i purchased last august. The keyboard doesnt work except for a couple function keys and the power button. This just occured today 02/22/2018. I am using an external keyboard and mouse at the moment. i have reset the bios, reinstalled all drivers, and even went to the Intel, lenovo, windows sites to get the updated ones.
I need this computer for school, and hauling around extra parts sucks. If I cant get this resolved, I will be forced to get another computer. Bear in mind, it wont be another Lenovo at this point.
 
Here are some questions: 
1) can I replace the keyboard of necessary?
2) How do I remove the bottom cover, without damaging it to reset the battery?
3) Looking through the feeds, this seems to be a common issue. What is being done to resolve the issue in the future?
 
I will be more then happy to recieve a phone call from your tech support to resolve this.

Hello Friends: I am new to this forum, but am having some issues with my Ideapad 110 (using Windows 8 and Internet Explorer), and am hoping for some input. After opening Internet Explorer, and having Google Search as my homepage, the page loads. Great. No problems.  It loads quickly and correctly. However, when I then go to any other site from the search engine, the new page minimizes momentarily to about 1/2 the correct size (coming from the upper left corner) leaving the remaining space as black as night.  Within a few seconds, the page loads to full size.  I'm including a screen shot of what it looks like.This is very frustrating going from site to site, having to wait for the page to correctly load.Is there something I've done to make it do this and if so, what can be done to remedy it? Thank-you in advance.-SherwoodBassLenovo Ideapad 110 Issue

I bought an Ideapad Flex4 May, 2017.  I did not expect perfection, it was a very good price - just bought it to run internet for basic searches, email, and to access and use Excel and Word (no gaming, high end usage).  However, it has progressively declined to be almost unusable.  When I called support they determined it was a software issue (thus not under warranty) and I didn't realize it would cost me almost half what I paid to get software support.  So I declined.  Any ideas welcomed.  Running windows 10.  I run disk cleanup, defrag, keep up with upgrades as necessary.  Run McAfee.  Tried unsuccessfully yesterday to delete my browsing history in Edge, today that finally worked (I think).  My internet works fine in all other usage at home (Ipad, 2nd computer, TV apps). Multiple Issues: Computer continuously locks up in both internet browser mode as well as MSoffice products (Word and Excel).  I have tried both Edge and Chrome browsers.  Especially Yahoo mail and Excel - I continuously get the "XXX is not responding" error.   When this is happening the computer is churning, churning audibly doing something but Task Manager doesn't show any open programs running other than what I am trying to do.  Examples just today:  computer would not come back "awake" after a couple of hours, totally blank screen, had to hard reboot.  Then yahoo mail essentially would not work in either Ed...

Hello! For a month now i have been experiencing several issues with my Lenovo laptop. I've went through lots of online tutorials but none worked, some even made it worse. I decided to come to this forum since the problems are making the laptop unusable  The problems are: Almost all of my keyboard keys are repeating after being held for around 3 seconds (like thissssssssssssssssss), then it will randomly stop after some time. This is really annoying espically while playing a game (including all letters, numbers, ctrl, shift, backspace and the space bar) The space bar presses itself randomly while typing (  lik e   t h  is ). Sometimes it doesn't press when i press it, and sometimes it doesn't stop pressing when i press it, unless i press another key. In the Login screen when turning the laptop on, the space bar is always active (fills the password box with spaces) The Backspace button isn't always working too These occur basically everywhere, browsers, games, text editors, everything that does something when a button is pressed Laptop information: OS: Windows 10 64-bit, x64 based processorModel: Lenovo Ideapad 100-15IBY4.00 GB RAM, 3.88 of which are usable829.2 GB total free memory space (C and D)Nothing is plugged in except the mouse (problems occur with it unplugged too)I have never spilled drinks on the laptop What i tried:Scanned for viruses with Windows Defender and AVG, nothing foundCleaned junk files with Disk Clean...

Good morning everyone,
 
I am having issues with sound on the M92 or G1U3306 as stated on the subject. The sound works perfectly fine for everything with the exception of Istation, www.istation.com. I did notice that this is only affecting 2 out of the 20 plus computers we have, so its a bit hard to say its just the model. I have tried updating the drivers to the latest version, and as well verified that it was not just the input device for front and back jacks being wonky. Oddly enough the support agent I worked with, used TeamViewer and was able to hear the application just fine, however when I used speakers it was very, very faint but I could also hear it. 
 
Is there any general help anyone can provide me to pinpoint the problem further?

I'm not finding that model number, can you verify?   Running 'sys info' can usually also provide the model number (do not post serial numbers.)   And OS info and Istation version might be helpful.   Thx.

The audio emitting from the speakers on my new Ideapad 15 110 is just terrible and tinny. Had to purchase a bluetooth speaker to resolve this issue. Anyone have similar issues with this laptop. The sound is perfect when played through headphones and through my wireless speaker.

A:Ideapad 110 15 - Sound from Speakers

HI Edbo11703,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would you be having an issue with the quality of sound or was it just too low?
Ensure that you have an updated audio driver similar to those on the support website and having maximized volume (F3).
 
Checking further on the hardware manual (page44), as it shows that the model has only one speaker and not that big, I would expect that the volume may be lower than others similar to this discussion.
 
Regards

I have had this Ideapad for awhile now, the problem i have is i have been trying to free up space i have deleted everything including my microsoft office i have nothing left to delete that doesn't need to be on the computer for it to function. I have done a disk cleanup often and it still says i have less than 1gb left of space. I can not update my windows nor can i factory reset the computer because i do not have enough space i do not have the money to get a sd card or a usb nor do i want to waste money on it when there is obviously something in my computer that doesnt belong there taking up space. any help would be appreciated thank you.

First off I have checked my internet speeds with no less than 6 other devices and they all connect at the proper speeds.I was given this laptop for Christmas yesterday.  I tried to connect tonight to download some things and cannot get download or upload speeds even close to what I am supposed to be getting.  It won't go over 2-3 mbps when I do any speed test.  Now other devices on this network are getting the correct speeds near 20 mbps.  When downloading from any site on the laptop I cannot get a speed of over 20-100 kbps.  Going to take years to get all the stuff I need downloaded at those speeds.  I have updated the drivers and downloaded all updates that are suggested.  I've tried resetting network settings and redownloading drivers multiple times. As you can imagine I am beyond disgusted at this point and it is too late to contact support tonight.Any suggestions that I might not have thought of already?

PC: lenovo ideapad 110-15ASTThe audio appears to have a few issues which I can't figure out how to resolve, and while I could return the PC I'd prefer if I didn't have to. 1. When earphones or other audio imputs are connected to the device it switches the input to both the Speakers and Microphone. When connecting an audio input device it will not allow the computer's speakers to be used. The issue isn't the fact the audio jack is for both a mic and a speaker, as my previous PC was fine with being able to determine the device plugged in.Is it possible to fix this? 2. When earphones are connected, it recognises the device has been connected however will not play out of that device.Under connected devices it won't appear, and instead it remains under the PC Speakers. Audio still plays because it displays the volume level as green bars. No sound however is being transmitted from the PC via the default computer speakers or earphones. Occasionally the earphones will work almost randomly, and cut out the same way. I am unsure whether or not this is a hardware issue or if it is a software issue. Is there any advice to fix this? I have previously tried to install and reinstall the drivers, as well as update them, but so far there has been no success in that front.

I have a 500S-14ISK Laptop (ideapad). The other day it was doing an automated windows update. I realized the laptop was low on battery so I plugged in the charger, went out for lunch and hoped the update would be done once I came back. When I returned I realized that the charger was not connected to wall-socket so the laptop shut down in the middle of the update. Now I cant get it to start. If I push the power button, the power button lights up and so does the keyboard but the screen gets nowhere. I cant even come to the BIOS setup to do a factory reset. I tried removing the battery, holding the powerbutton for 30s and then put the battery back in. No luck. Did the same this with and without the charger caple attached. No luck. I also tried connecting the laptop to an external display. No luck.  Is there anything else I can try? Supposedly there is a "NOVO" button, what is that and could that work for me? Greatful for any responses!
