Suddenly my left speaker start ticking, I return laptop from sleep mode, but I couldn't do anything with sound, raise volume, or open realtek.So I did restarted laptop, while restarting at Lenovo screen speaker will start ticking, and when inside system its just "shhhshhhsh" coming from headphones, while speakers, well while in system still left one is ticking all the time. Indicator in Control Panel > Sound is showing green volume equalizer okay while I am playing any track, but I actually hear nothing. I reinstalled driver for Windows x64, from Lenovo drivers for B51-30 Laptop, tried with windows default driver, all is same. I had this with first laptop, now with second too after I change it by warranty.Now there has to be fix, or all this serie is nothing but useless. What should I do?

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.)

Hello,
I see many similar threads here but no one helps me to solve an issue with sound on my desktop computer Lenovo with 64 bit windows 7 OS.

In Device Manager under Sound, video and game controllers I have listed Realtek High Definition Audio and under properties of that message "This device is working properly" appears.
From that point I think sound should be working.

On the back of computer I have headphones plugged in, I thing properly.
Lenovo subsystem see that jacks are plugged in.

However, in taskbar, there is speaker symbol on which is little red X and when I put a mouse pointer over it it gives popup message The Audio service is not running.
When I press right mouse button over that icon and choose "Sounds" a new window pops with several tabs such is: Playback, Recording, Sounds, Communications. Under Playback and Recording tab here is a text: "No audio device installed".

Is here something I can do to get my audio working?

A:Lenovo, windows 7 64, no sound

First suggestion. Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the RealTek entry and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. If there were any Windows corruptions, this will fix it.

Description of problem: at some point when playing audio, sound will cut out. The levels will still be moving on the mixer, but no sound will come through the speakers or sound jack. It seems that soon after I've closed all sound-producing applications, sound returns. I am 50-75% sure that this is strictly a sound jack issue, as I don't remember being able to reproduce the issue without the sound jack being active when the audio drops out. Frequently, bumping my headphones' cord seems to cause the problem, but other times, the problem seems to happen on a click, a loud sound, or seemingly nothing at all.

I am unsure of how to reliably reproduce the problem, so it is difficult to diagnose whether or not the problem can be reproduced when the sound jack is not active. This isn't common use for me...

Origin: Appeared mid-October, around the same time I had upgraded to the newest drivers (where the old ones were from earlier than May 2013). All were downloaded through the Lenovo website and/or Lenovo's System Update utility, with the exception of the Intel graphics drivers, which were downloaded through the Intel website. At this point, I was running Windows 8, not Windows 8.1. I installed Windows 8.1 recently, and the problem remains.

What I've tried: disabling drivers, reinstalling drivers, disabling sound effects, disabling audio application overrides...

What I haven't tried: rolling back drivers (being honest, I have a bit of trouble believing that this is strictly ... Read more

Aslam O Alaikum,

Friends, I am facing very strange problem with my laptop. I have lenovo g500 with Windows 7 installed in it. I am facing trouble with sound of this system. When I starts my Machine some times sound stops working.

To get sound back I used to uninstall sound drivers and reinstall those drivers and after doing so sound starts working.

After some time I discovered that by disabling/enabling Bluetooth/wifi sound starts working again.

Here is the screen shot of Drivers installed for my PC.

One more thing,,,, 3, 4 months before I had not installed these sound drivers. I was using sound drivers that were by default at the time of installation. There were only two drivers named as "High definition audio". But due to these drivers my speaker input pin was not working. So I downloaded new drivers from lenovo website.
I hope You understand what I am trying to say. Please help me.

May be you Installed wrong driver. Above one is the right Driver, If your laptop is Lenovo G500.(not G500s).
If you have installed the same and its not working. Its time for hardware troubleshooting. Also try the driver DVD supplied with your notebook.

I'm very much a novice when it comes for tech stuff, so if I posted this in the wrong place/irritate people with my cluelessness, sorry.

This issue started when I was restarting my Lenovo Y50-70 laptop after a Windows 8.1 update about 2 weeks ago. I'm only getting a black screen after the Lenovo logo. Initially, there's no cursor, but it shows up after 5-6 hours. Otherwise, it's still a black screen. Ctrl-Alt-Del (or any other key combos) doesn't work. The only response I get at this stage is Sticky Keys.

I could get into Advanced Recovery Options using Shift-F8 once, and I tried to restore to an earlier point (I installed two new programs before the update). But the restore failed; I don't remember the exact error message, but it mentioned something about something being corrupt, and running chkdsk. That was the last time I was able to access the menu, and since then F5/F8 combos don't work. I tried Safe Mode before the restore, but it didn't do anything different either. The only thing I can do now is access the BIOS.

Again, I'm a novice when it comes to this stuff, so I'm not sure if there's anything from the BIOS I can try, or whether this is a hardware issue (because of the corrupt/chkdsk thing) or a software one. I don't have any installation media/recovery drives at hand, and I won't really have access to a computer where I can make one until August (I'm not at home). Any help is much appreciated though.

After updating to Windows 8.1, my PC is unable to restart with the following message displayed:

1) Preparing automatic repair
2) Diagnosing your PC
3) Your PC did not start correctly

Here I am given 2 options:
a) Restart
b) Advanced Options.

Option (a) will keep me in the same loop. I have tried most of the options in (b) but nothing works out. The only extra clue I got is when I go to Startup Settings and select option 9)" Disable automatic restart after failure" from which an additional message was displayed:

error: INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE


I did not make any backup beforehand and now I'm hoping to restore to my previous setting without losing any files/data. Or it would be even better I could solve the problem without any restoration.

Please help. I cannot access to the Windows start-up anymore, not even in Safe Mode.

A:Windows 8.1 update crashes my Lenovo Yoga13

The best way if you can gain access to another computer is to get a ISO copy of Windows 8, put it to the USB with Microsoft Store

Then use the repair tool built into Windows 8.

Before attempting another upgrade which should not be a problem since your computer is so new remember to:

1) Check and Install latest Windows Updates.

2) Check for Firmware updates

3) No external devices plugged in during the install

4) Consider doing a clean boot.

When I look up your system on the support page I see quite a few updates, drivers and such that support windows 8.1 and 10.  If you are looking for a BIOS update or patch, those are usually OS neutral and are applied with either a BIOS utility or patcher that works in DOS mode and some can use a windows based utility.
 
Are you trying to use a BIOS update to fix an issue or just get the "latest and greatest" for your computer?  Mostly I would not recommend updating your BIOS unless it is absolutely neccessary to fix a troublesome issue or problem with hardware.

Is there any solution to constant system failure to a level where the blue screen turns up and laptop can't be even turned on, after every system update?

I've checked the drivers and everything, but since the big update pack somewhere in March every update ends up in system failure. And the restore points before the updates are useless, because system doesn't recognize them.

After the second time this has happened and I've lost all the files that has not been backed up on hard drive I really start to think is there something wrong to Lenovo and Windows 7 combination?

My W10 64bit Dell desktop installed KB3194798 on 10/12/2016 using Windows Update (WU) so now it is 1607 1493.321.
Today I tried WU to update my Lenovo G505 W10 laptop and I think it might have been KB3194798 that has killed my laptop, but I cannot even get the laptop to go past the black screen to the Lenovo display when trying to boot.
Here's the history...
Today I pushed the power button to turn it on and found that my wife had left it on and over the many hours it had gone into (I assume) a powersaving mode that made me think it needed to boot.
The screen showed that WU was up and some KB was at 94%. I left it alone and a few minutes later it told me the install was ready to go. So I clicked to let it WU do the install. The install failed saying some files were missing but it let me click on "retry".
I think it failed a 2nd time. The 3rd time it appeared to be installing OK, and I went to work for a few hours. On my return it showed that the laptop required a restart to complete the WU installs - that's pretty normal after letting WU do an install of a "cumulative", I think. So I clicked to restart and walked away. When I returned hours later, the laptop was still displaying the Lenovo boot-time logo and the spinner was spinning. I powered down the laptop by holding down the power button. Now the laptop will not even display the Lenovo boot-time logo. The little power LED is lit.

Lenovo Releases BIOS Update to Allow Linux Installation on Windows 10 Devices

Back in September, complaints that reached the web (and even got confirmed by a supposed Lenovo official) claimed that installing Linux on a Yoga 900 was impossible because the operating system was blocked as part of a deal between Microsoft and Lenovo.

Both Microsoft and Lenovo denied that such an agreement existed, explaining that installing Linux was actually impossible because Windows 10 was running on a SSD locked in a proprietary RAID mode that could only be read by Redmond?s operating system.

And yet, following all this controversy Lenovo has released a new BIOS update for Yoga 900 that unlocks this proprietary RAID mode and allows the installation of Linux on the device.

?This BIOS creates an AHCI SATA Controller Mode selection to allow for the installation of the Linux operating system. This BIOS is NOT intended for use with machines running a Windows operation system,? the official changelog of the new BIOS version reads.

Drivers should allow Linux installation on any device
Lenovo confirmed from the very beginning that installation of Linux on its devices was possible with the right drivers, but the company didn?t say a single thing about updates that would be provided for the Yoga 900 Signature Edition.

?To improve system performance, Lenovo is leading an industry trend of adopting RAID on the SSDs in certain product configurations. Lenovo does not intentionally block cus... Read more

My Lenovo Y700 has been suffering from an issue since October of 2016, one which I imagine many people on this forum (or at least those of you who have also purchased this laptop model) are aware of. The issue itself wouldn't bother me, if it wasn't for Lenovo's gross negligence and seeming apathy towards customers with the issue. Here is the story behind my infuriation:I bought the Lenovo Y700-15ACZ laptop back in February from my local Best Buy, at the cost of nearly 900USD (including tax), to replace my old Dell laptop, and up until late October I was relatively satisfied with the purchase. Then Windows sent out their latest updates for the AMD graphics driver. At this time, I had no idea what was going on, so I brought the laptop to Geek Squad, at the same Best Buy from which I bought the computer. They explained to me that the issue was caused by an incompatibility between the built-in motherboard graphics card and the AMD video card, a result of the most recent graphics update at the time. So, I had them roll back the computer to before the update in question was released, and disable all automatic updates. It's a good temporary solution, but as many of us probably know, disabling updates means that security updates, as well as graphics updates, will not install, thus putting my computer at an increased risk of malware infection. So, after three months of leaving my Lenovo update-less, I decided that I've tempted fate long enough, and called Geek Squad to arrange an app... Read more

I then updated to WIndows Media Player 10 and still no sound (no sound on Real player either but it was worth a try). Other audio/video things in device manager seemed to have drivers and update wizard tells me there are no better drivers.

Worried that it may be the speakers I connected the laptop to the stereo and discovered when turning up the volume that there is sound but very, very faint. This applies to system sounds as well as music. All sound volumes are at max in the screen that looks like a graphic equaliser and I can't find any other hidden volume controls.

Any ideas what to try next?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,The problem is quite old. After Windows update sound disappeared.It happened several months ago, but I didn't care, I used it only for my work. Now I'd like to have sound back. Current sound driver: Conexant ISST Audio 9.0.68.60 (05-Sep-16) I tried all (I think so) methods I found on the forum:1. Update driver. Didn't work. I have the latest. (is it so?)2. Uninstall sound driver, reboot and install it back. Nope.3. Uninstall driver and install previous version. Nope. I tried all previous versions I cound find.4. Uninstall driver, update chipset (sp72025) and install specific (sp77502) driver as somebody offered here. Nope.5. Change the friquency of the channel in Properties. Didn't work6. Switch off all sound effects in Properties. Didn't work. 7. Uninstall all Windows updates. I tried but there are still 3 which cannot be deleted (KB3199986, KB3199209, KB3176936), because there is no option to delete/uninstall them. Looks like one of them (KB3199986) can be a cause of my problem. But I don't know what to do with it.So for now I don't want to make a reset of the system, there are a lot of programs installed. BUT if there is no other way, I will.Any thoughts? Thank you!

Hi: See if this W8.1 driver works.  Install and reboot the PC. This package provides the driver for the IDT High Definition Audio solutions in supported models that are running a supported operating system. File name: sp63932.exe

What is happening with Lenovo System Update? We are getting an error that the package catalog is being updated? We have several models here and its happening on all of them. I can't find anything relating to this update on any Lenovo site, and the response I got from calling support was "Sorry." They were also not able to tell me when they think this will be fixed. EDIT: Spelling.

Hi, after a recent Window's update I have been losing sound when streaming TV.  It wasn't an issue before. Initially the sound cut out after about 30 minutes and now it's after about 10!  I have run the troubleshooter but it didnt identify any problems.  If I close the site down and leave it for half an hour I will have sound again - but it cuts out after 10 minutes again.  Very frustrating!  No error messages.  Occassionally I will get intermittent sound - like someone is switching volume up and down - but it's intermittent and this has just been since the update too.  No other issues. I'd be very grateful for any help to resolve this. Many thanks  Sheelagh

Hey all,

I have an HP pavilion dv6748us laptop. Now my problem is Windows made some automatic updates just the other day and once those updates took I now have no sound on my laptop. My audio icon has a red X next to it which states "No audio output device is installed when the cursor is placed over it. I googled the error message which suggest that I go into device manager and update the drivers. I tried that and no change. I did a search on my computer for sound and clicked on the audio icon and it read no audio device installed. I went to HP support site and downloaded all three of the audio drivers for my model of computer, still nothing. I went to the microsoft website and ran the audio diagnostic test and it could not resolve the problem. Now I don't know what else to do. I need help it is beyond my limited knowledge on this issue. By the way I'm running windows vista on this computer. Thanks in advance for any help given.

Thoroughly confused,

A:No sound after windows vista update

Go to device manager and right click on the audio driver and click uninstall then restart the computer. If there isnt an option to uninstall please post back. What bit is vista is it 64 bit or 32 bit?

Hello all - Hopefully someone can help me sort this extremely annoying problem!

Two days ago I downloaded four Windows Vista updates/service pack after repeated prompting. Everything seemed to download OK, the system rebooted and since then I have got no sound from my laptop at all.

I can't play songs in iTunes - i.e. they now wont actually even start playing rather than just not being able to hear them.

I get no sound say for example if I watch a youtube video.

I have now got a red x over the speaker item in the system tray - if I hold the cursor over it a message pops up saying 'No Audio Output Device is installed'.

An error message appears when I open iTunes saying ' iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration'. NO KIDDING!

Does anyboday have any idea how to get my sound back.

Thanks in anticipation.

A:no sound for desktop after update to windows 10

Hi: The product specs page indicates that your PC came with W7 64 bit. I can tell you that there is no W10 32 bit audio driver. If you inadvertently posted the wrong bit version, see if this W10 64 bit IDT audio driver works... This package provides the IDT Tempo High Definition Audio Driver for supported desktop models that are running a supported operating system. File name: sp71717.exe If not, there is a workaround that you can try to at least get the sound to work... Go to the device manager and click to expand the Sound, video and game controllers device category. 1. Select IDT High Definition Audio CODEC under that category.2. Select Driver tab.3. Click Update Driver... button.4. Select  -> Browse my computer for driver software.5. Select -> Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.6. Select  High Definition Audio Device (Not  IDT High Def...  this is important.) and click Next.    A warning message may appear,  but click Yes.7. Windows has successfully update your driver software.8. Restart the PC. The key is step 6.

Yesterday evening I was alerted to some new security updates, so I elected to download and install them. At the end of the night when I went to Shut Down, I noticed the little Windows Update icon next to the Shut Down, button, indicating it would install the updates before powering off. I hit the button to install updates and shut down, turned my monitor off, and went to bed. Today when I booted up, I had no sound. None.

Windows is correctly recognizing my hardware, it's set to "enable," the volume is up, I'm not getting any error messages, the sound just doesn't work. I tried reinstalling the sound drivers to no avail. Then I went online and installed new versions of the drivers, still no change. I installed SP3 in some blind hope that it might fix it, but still no change. Finally I ran a System Restore to before I ran the Windows Update yesterday, and I'm still getting nothing.

I tried my speakers and a set of headphones and neither of them are getting any sound, but when I plug either of them into my Zune they work properly. I'm stumped. Last resort is to reinstall Windows, but I really don't want to do that if I don't need to.

*Bump* Just checking to see if anybody might have any ideas before I reformat.

I do not have a restore point, this laptop didn't come with any disks at all.

I tried to download drivers and save then to a external hard drive, installed them.. still nothing. Any help would be appreciated.
