Are you sure it's not working?   I thought the same when i bought mine new, but i was wrong.   It's only a 3watt sub so its barely noticable in my opinion. There is an area where you can control the volume level of the 2 speakers and the sub.  Make sure those are both up.  Speaker Properties-->Levels

Hi, community.  i've just bought a Lenovo y700 and it is only a day old. I was playing music and noticed  that the subwoofer doesn't seem to play anything. To prove this. I went to realtek properties and disabled the front speakers leaving the subwoofer on 100 and turned on realtek audio up to 100. When I replayed music, there was no sound at all. I've seen another thread of this problem with the Y700, but there was no solution. I've tried installing the realtek audio driver on the support page for the Y700, but that didn't do anything.Any suggestions?Thank you for any assistance.

Hello i own a Lenovo Ideapad Y700 15ACZ for 3 weeks now.  But the subwoofer is definitly not working. Since it came out of the factory it did not work.I reinstalled drivers from lenovo support page and have Dolby installed and latest Realtek drivers. Is this a harware fault? or is it something else?I can also see in sound->playback devices->speakers (realtek high definition device)  an internal subwoofer slider. This has 0% impact when set to zero or fully enabled. ?? Can someone help me please? (In dolby i can't change anything only an equalizer.

I have owned my Lenovo Y50-70 sine Windows 10 initially came out and was rocking Win 8.1.The computer ran smoothly and sounded great. Around 1-2 mounts after release of Win 10 I upgraded it with good expectations. Almost everything was working but I noticed a lack in bass. Since i knew the pc had a internal subwoofer i tried as an easy fix at that time and changed the sound level for the main speakers on the laptop to favor the sub.Skip to current day and i have experienced a lot of issues with the sound lately. Under some troubleshooting, i discovered that the internal subwoofer didn't even do anything, for all these years... Trying to find a fix was slim to none since there are no fixes as i have found yet.I know it worked on Windows 8.1 and have tried many fixes lately from disabling, updating, uninstalling and reinstalling the audio driver.The laptop is using Realtek and have Dolby Digital Plus.Thanks in advance.Specs:i7 4710HQGTX 860m 4gb16gb RAM4K Screen1000gb HDD(Additional audio problems...)1.

Hi everyone, I bought this laptop about 3 months ago and I'm loving it so far. But every so often the keyboard would just stop working and when I try shutting it off, it would go through the entire shutting off process and the screen goes black but all the lights and fan would still be on. I am then forced to hold the power button down to force it off. When I restart the computer instead, it would take me to the blue screen where it would say "Windows has ran into an unexpected error" then the screen would turn black again and everything else would be on. Anyone have any idea or solution to what's going on? Thanks in advnace!

Hi, hope you can help me. I saw some similar posts about the fans but in my case the fans go very loud randomly and go to complete silence every 5-10 minutes with 1% - 3% CPU usage. For instance just simply browsing, not watching any videos or anything. Uninstalling Lenovo power managment utility didn't help, updating BIOS didn't help either. The room temperature is 19 degrees. The laptop is 2 weeks old and has been doing that from the very begining. Any other suggestions please?

Hi Lenovo and everyone, I have two issues with the sound of my Y700-15ISK:I.When any Realtek driver is installed that includes support for the subwoofer, a high pass filter is applied on the main stereo speakers, making sound poorer and more mono-like, especially with enhanced bass using an equalizer.(High pass filter removes low bass frequencies from the main stereo speakers.)(When the default Microsoft driver is installed that does not have subwoofer support, no high pass filter is applied on the main stereo speakers.)Is there a way to disable the high pass filter? I would like bass to come from the main stereo speakers as well. I see no such option on any of the available GUIs, is there such an option from a Command Line Interface?If there is no such option currently, could you put this option in a subsequent driver release, or simply remove the high pass filter from the driver?If you do not have the resources to do so, could you enable us to modify the driver source code and create a custom driver without high pass filter? I am sure the community would love the enhanced music coming from this and similar laptops using the updated driver.(Win 10 or Win7) II.Only on Win7:Subwoofer is out of sync with the main stereo speakers resulting in echo.Happens using Lenovo's Win7 64-bit, Win10 64-bit, and Realtek's generic driver as well. Could you guys fix this? Does anyone have a solution for these? Thanks,Andras

Hi there, after heaps of tries I have managed to get the Sierra Wireless working in Linux Mint 18.2, the only problem, it automatically goes back to unavailable after suspending or disabling and then re-enabling it. The only way to get it to work again is to restart the lap in Win10 and then again into Linux again. Any workaround? This is being a massive pain!

New US Y700 with latest bios - scrubbed Windoze because of the buggy, freezing NVidea driver and loaded Ubuntu 17.04 I would like to find the hardware address of the backlit keyboard so I can turn it on/off via a script. Also, if the keyboard is of a particular subtype, would love to know that too! While were on the subject - the hardware address of the subwoofer in alsa would be helpful too. Unix works well - had to tune some othe systemd time outs to get the machine to shutdown within a reasonable time - that was it so far.
