Lenovo Ideapad 510 Sound System

Q: Lenovo Ideapad 510 Sound System

I have just purchased this laptop which is marketed as being supplied with a " Harman" sound system. "Audio by Harman" is printed on the laptop. The Device Manager shows the sound card and driver as being "Conexant" There is a Harman App provided and also a Conexant App. Are these 2 sound systems related, same system or is there something wrong with the build or system ? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks in advance. John

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.)

HI!!! I have the above mentioned ntb. I noticed that the Lenovo Settings is saying that there is a problem with the Lenovo System Interface Foundation, the same goes with Lenovo Vantage, and it provided me with the possibility to update it. I downloaded the offered file, the instalation runs without a problem, I restart the computer but the problem with the LSIF was still there. I uninstaled Lenovo Settings and Vantage, and now I am not able to install it again. When I want to get Lenovo Vantage from the store, I am receiving and error message, that it canīt be installed, error code: 0x80073CFB. Thx for an advice how to deal with this. Ondrej

Hello I just bought this laptop last week and I am already having trouble with the sound. I have recorded something on Adobe Audition, but when I hear it back, it sounds choppy with the volume. I did update the sound card, but it still sounds choppy. What else can I do to make it sound better?

I turned on my laptop this morning and I heard a crackling sound coming from the computer. The crackling wasn't coming from any speakers, rather what sounded like the right side of the laptop. I then checked my task manager to find that I was at 100% disc usage. I updated windows then I used Lenovo update to update the bios. Still at 100, I checked online for solutions. Did all the common ones, including setting my power option to high performance and running chkdsk. Didn't work.I then ran a hardware scan using Lenovo vantage, which made my fans go crazy, but eventually after about 45 minutes the scan ended and the disc usage went down to around 30%, then down again to start hovering around normal levels. However, the crackling sound still happens sometimes. The only tests that failed were the SMART short self test and the SMART drive self test.Why was it that the scan ending prompted the disc usage to go back to normal? And how can I stop this crackling? I didn't do anything abnormal with my laptop before the problem occured, and I travel with it carefully.

Hi there! I have a Lenovo Ideapad 710S that has really bad sound quality all of a sudden.When plugging in headphones the sound works great, but unplugging them makes the speakers on the laptop sound tinny and very low. It kind of feels like when you walk past people with earplugs that has full volume on. That "distant" sound. Almost as if my own headphones is still plugged in and lays beside my laptop or something.I've tried searching for a solution to this issue, without any luck at all. Can someone tell me what or how the problem may be solved? Maybe the speakers is bad and needs to be replaced, or can it be software issues?

I knew that this laptop had one tiny speaker but I didn't really mind because I use extra speakers. To my surprise, even if you connect a stereo pair of speakers the sound that you get is mono. I tried different kinds, of jacks, headphones and what so, but no stereo sound. It seems that the combo jack provides mono sound. The sound card is a realteck HD audio ALC233. Have all updates and laptop had windows 10 Home preinstalled You can check for your self doing the "left an right test" through control panel.  I also went back to the store and checked for my self on other demo laptops. Same issues there too. Went to other stores  same issues on all ideapads 100 seiries.I contacted Lenovo in Greece. They advised that the sound out the combo jack must be stereo in all occasions  and to send them the laptop to check it.But what are they going to check? All ideapads 100 series laptops in the market, at least the ones I tested provide mono sound out of the combo jack.Laptop specifications mention availability of a mono speaker and nothing about the combo jack. i will apreciate an official answer on this matter which will be beneficial to lenovo customers.

Hello everyone, I have recently purchased brand new Lenovo IdeaPad 710S-13IKB. It had Windows preinstalled. The problem is that there is no sound from the speakers, headset works fine. I have tried everything, even reinstalling Windows. Downloaded both drivers via Realtek, Lenovo official website, via Windows Device Manager. When something plays, the speakers indicator shows as on 'sound' screenshot attached. I am really lost here, can anyone please give soem advise. I read on some forums that there might be some conflict between Microsoft and Realtek driver versions. Perhaps, the directory to where the drivers are isntalled is not proper. Does anyone has any advice on this issue. I am ready for a remote session via TeamViewer or Supremo if possible as well. Best Regards, Dmitri

Hello Sorry If this is in the wrong place but I couldn't find a board for IdeaPad 700. I've had this laptop for a decent while (almost a year) and although it hasn't really bothered me much in the past, it's really starting to bother me now as I'm now usually in an area with more people (libraries, lecture theatres etc.). Everytime I start up my laptop, I can hear a constant crackling sound (which would continue until I shut down the laptop but would continue again right as I turned it back on) and sometimes a beep or two but mainly from underneath my laptop where the fans are located or where my right speakers are located. I'm not sure if it is a sound card issue or a driver issue as I don't hear anything like that through my headphones and the sound is perfect, however, the crackling noise still continues on my laptop itself. When I play music or watch any video through my speakers, the sound from the left speaker seems fine but the sound from the right speakers sometimes becomes distorted and you can hear like a quiet mumbling sound of the music or video underneath. I've also noticed that when I am using my scroll wheel on my mouse or scrolling using my touch pad, the crackling gets louder but as soon as I stop scrolling, it goes back to its "normal" crackling sound. I'm not sure if this is enough information but I really have no other idea of how to accurately describe the sound. I've also tried changing driver versions but it did not seem to work or do anything... Read more

Hi VinceZent , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Try booting on the BIOS using the Novo key (item6 page6) to turn on and press a bit on the scrolling on the touchpad.
Check if same sound appears booting on another live media is available.
 
Reviewing the placement of the touchpad to the systemfan and right speakers , I think mechanically is an issue with the fan. Pressure can be done by the touchpad passing it to the fan and underlying structure including the speakers as ,maybe just a cable on the wrong place since expected that it would be silent on this model. 
 
You don't have to change on the softwares but I would encourage you giving technical support a call for in warranty service and option that you can decide on. 
 
Hope this help answer your query.
Update us how things go.
 
Regards

I purchased my computer on Nov. 26, 2016 less than 3 months later, on Feb 2, 2017, the sound when I played music or videos started to stutter and become distorted.  This happened when using the laptop speakers, external speakers and headphones. If I restarted the computer the stuttering would stop for a few hours then come back. I researched online for a fix and couldn't find one that worked. After a month of this happening I finally called Lenovo customer service. They had me reinstall the drivers. That didn't work so they suggested a factory reset. So I backed up my files and did one. That still didn't make the stuttering stop.  It was still under warrenty, so per their advice I had to send the laptop in to Louisville, KY. (Which I had to pay $60 to ship them, because they only cover return shipping, this is the sign of a terrible company.)   I sent it in on 3/13 and they have been waiting on a part since 3/20.  Today 3/30 I call costumer service for an update and they tell me the part will not be in until APRIL 10th!!! Of course costumer service can not tell me why the part is taking so long to get there.  I'm very upset with this whole process.  My computer only worked for a little over 2 months and now Lenovo is keeping my computer for a month at least? This is not what I paid for.  I use my computer for work so this is a major. Has anyone else had any of these same issues?

Hallo. Two months back we have purchased a Lenovo 110 with Windows 10 and configured it. The initial setup and configuration took a long time (3 to 4 hours) and when it was done, we have been experiencing a lot of issues. Basic programs keep getting frozen and take a long time to start. Programs like MS Excel or MS Edge (for browsing) freeze the whole system and we need to press the power button to restart the laptop. System bootup can be really fast or at times get hung up for hours it the message "Windows being configured..."  We have taken it to Saturn, where we bought the laptop, but their customer care says everything is fine and have sent us the laptop back after just having reverted the system to factory settings.  We are highly dissatisfied and inconvenienced with this product, especially after having given away a lot of money for it, when basic lower end laptops work much smoother. Expecting a solution for this problem. Thank you.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.

I am totally disappointed in Lenovo's customer support. My lenovo 710s was bought less than 1 year ago (as of 10/6/2017, when I sent it in for repairs) and had 2 years warranty (1+1 year of extended warranty). I sent my laptop for repair due to a white spot issue on the monitor, affecting viewing of webpages and videos. However, the laptop was returned after 3 weeks without any fixes/repairs, as Lenovo claimed that it was a cosmetic issue. I wrote a message on their customer care website on 3/7/2017. However, they ignored me and there was no reply to date.  I thought Lenovo is a reliable and popular brand. However, it turned out to be a horrible decision, much to my dismay!

I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed. I have done my fair share of google searches and many people have had these same issues too, but no good solutions outside of deep computer hacking, I don't want to have to do that on a brand new computer. Thanks for any and all help!

New Yoga 700-141SK: Ran the Lenovo Support Center Hardware Scan and the Video Card Mathematical Operations Test has failed rendering the Report: WVC007002-UL7BPL. Is there a tried and proven solution out there? I have had a look at the solutions on the forum and am not satisfied that the solutions offered prove that the problem has been resolved. It is reasonable to expect Lenovo to make available a solution as a matter of course instead of end-users of "afflicted" Lenovo devices having to request/search for a solution(s).

Does anyone know the functions of the Lenovo Utility app? I am aware that it flashes up with an on screen symbol when the caps lock or num lock is pressed but what else can it do? I only ask as I want to disable it in order to stop the on screen notification that caps lock is on from appearing everytime I press the key. However I read somewhere that the app also handles the battery management and don't want to disable it if it will harm my pc. When I go into details in task manager it just appears as Lenovo Utility. So can I safley diable it? or will it cause an issue? Thanks
