Q: Yoga 710 - 14ikb 80V4 - latest system Intel driver update broke audio (solved)

I was about to post to seek for help but I've fixed it myself, so I'm going to post just to give an heads up, the latest system Intel driver update (9.21.0.1489, from Windows Update) broke my audio, it couldn't find my audio card anymore. I've tried to download and install the audio drivers (and the chipset drivers) from the Lenovo product support page, it didn't fix anything, finally I could solve the problem with the latest "generic" realtek drivers, here is the link in case somebody has the same problem, make sure to download the 64 bit version http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsCheck.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&Down...

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.)

My laptop didnt recognize sound drivers after the latest update. Well I did as "https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-710-14ikb-80V4-latest-system-Intel-dr..." suggested, but he had a different version of the Yoga than mine. I installed the newest realtek drivers for my laptop. I get weird pops n freezes when playing audio. Device Manager insists for me to troubleshoot the PC, "Intel High Definition DSP - no drivers installed" and is unable to fix it. What now?

Signed up for this specific topic; been searching everywhere with nothing panning out.  Conexant SmartAudio HD, Lenovo ThinkPad OneLink Dock, and Intel(R) Display Audio are my sound drivers/controllers.  Conexant is running computer speakers in HD, I have no speakers connected to Onelink, and my real question Intel(R) Display Audio the dedicated HDMI driver is running through Onelink to my LG OLED TV.   Problem is Intel(R) Display Audio doesnt support HD formats I know with certainty my TV does in fact in sound settings it excludes tens if not hundreds of supported formats and is maxed at 2 channels while TV is 4 naitive upscaled to 7.1.  Up until 3 days ago I new nothing of any of this and first suspected the Onelink which it may still be but I'm convinced its the dedicated HDMI driver Intel(R) Display Audio. Is there any driver or software that I can use for HDMI from the Onelink that is passed through a sound driver/controller similar to Intel High Definition Audio driver which would allow me to have HD sound (this search began because of a stutter in sound for .2-2 sec every 5-20 min on HD playback in Kodi (post buffer and nonexistant on playback)).  Thanks

Good morning! I wonder if anyone else has either experienced or solved the issue I am currently having with my Yoga 710. I looked for similar postings that may have solved this issue but did not find them so if I missed it, I apologize.  After visiting the IT help desk at my university several times as certain programs such as Spotify desktop, Zoom, Skype, SPSS Amos Graphics (a statistical modeling program) would open but display a black screen, the technicians realized that the Intel 520 Graphics Driver appeared to cause an issue once it advanced past a particular version of the software. They rolled back the graphics driver and everything was working great until last night my computer wanted to update Windows 10 which automatically updated the graphics driver and eliminated the option to roll back to a previous version of the graphics driver. Now I can't use a significant number of the programs on my laptop.  I could rollback the Windows update but that doesn't seem helpful overall. It seems silly to keep having to roll back the graphics driver when the Windows update seems to be forcing it to be more up-to-date. On an Intel forum it seems like Intel is saying that Lenovo has tested it and says everything is OK, but that doesn't seem to be the case.  Any ideas or links to solutions would be most appreciated! Best wishesMandy

Hello, I have a Yoga 720 15" notebook and after updating Adobe Premiere Pro CC to the latest version, I have been prompted to update my Intel Graphics Driver. I didn't think much of it, so I went to the Intel Driver & Support Assistant and saw that listed under Intel HD Graphics 630, I have installed version x.x.x.4749 with an update available for the latest version, x.x.x.6890.  The problem is that when I try to install the update via Intel's site, I get an error that reads, "The driver being installed is not valid for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer." I then click to find more information and that Lenovo has their own (I suppose altered) version of this driver and that I need to get it from. When I went to Lenovo Support for the drivers, the only driver there is for the x.x.x.4749 version. I'll place my machine information below, but if anyone knows of a way to update these drivers, I would greatly appreciate it!  YOGA 720-15IKB 80X7 Intel i7-7700HQ16.0 GB RAM  I'm really new to this, so if there's any other information that would be needed, please let me know.

So i'm looking to get some help/advice. I had a recent upgrade to my windows 10 and for some reason the sound coming out of my speakers now sounds like it's coming from the other side of a long hallway. I can fix this by going into device manager and downgrading my current audio driver but windows seems to keep updating it to the new one which sounds terrible. I can downgrade it, restart my computer and be listening to music when suddenly the sound changes. Any suggestions on preventing windows form updating to the newer driver? Or is there a new driver that fixes this? Any help would be appreciated

Hi ChrisPerry,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
 
As I understand that you are facing issue after installing Intel Display driver from Lenovo 
If that's the case why not give it a try to update it from Intel one from here. And try to update it from Device Manager manually from zip file. 
 
Do let us know how it goes.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Anyone have an easy fix for this? Apparently we lost this shortcut funcationality awhile back. I constantly find myself opening up the laptop to a sideways screen and it is really, really annoying. I use the tablet function a lot and sometimes sleep the laptop or close it and then open it in a different mode (laptop mode) and I'm guessing that the computer isn't smart enough to know to display landscape instead of portait. It wouldnt be much of a problem if the shortcut keys actually worked. Very annoying to right click and navigate the menus. Also I noticed that whenever I'm in laptop mode, the rotation lock button is greyed out. Why is that? It seems that the rotation lock is always on and I can't deactivate it. I have a Yoga 370. What have you others have done? Will Lenovo address this problem?Thanks

I run multiple Minecraft servers on my Windows 10 desktop. Just recently, I rebooted my PC to install updates, and now my servers can no longer communicate even though I have set up my static IP and port forwarded correctly. I have attached an image to prove that everything is set up to allow my servers to communicate, but that they cannot. I immediately figured out that the update must have caused the problem, and uninstalled it manually. Instantly the port jumped back online and players could once again connect. But it wasn't long before Windows 10 forced the update to reinstall and reboot the computer. Except this time, the update froze, leaving my computer at 37% installing updates for about 15 minutes before I gave up and manually shut the computer down by holding the power button. When it rebooted, it said the update had failed, and yet my servers remained disconnected from their ports. I told the computer to reinstall the update so it wouldn't force-reboot later. My troubleshooting process was interrupted my a Spring Break vacation. When I returned, my computer notified me that yet another update was available, and I installed it in the hopes that it had fixed the issue. No such luck. I created a random test port in my router for port 80, and it still shows up as being closed. My friends and I are starting to miss our servers, but I have tried everything I can think of and my servers remain offline despite the ports being set up properly.

Hi,I use a Yoga 720-15lkb with Nvidia GPU with a 4K display.Due to the Nvidia Optimus making Intel HD graphics the sole controller of the display, Windows UI animations lag by an incredible amount at the 3840 x 2160 resolution.There is talk about the Intel Graphics - Windows 10 DCH drivers solving a lot of problems but while trying to install it, it says it has not been validated for my computer. I checked the driver for Yoga 15lkb there where no new updates. Can we get an update from Lenovo for the Intel HD graphics 630?The Windows UI lag is ruining the experience of the 3 day old laptop.

A:[Request] Intel HD Graphics Driver Update for Yoga 720-15lkb

You can install the latest Intel Graphics drivers provided by Intel, but you must first switch to the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter first to avoid the "not been validated" message you received earlier.  Before starting, download the latest Intel DCH driver for your graphics adapter if needed, and disconnect any external monitors for the time being. Right-click on Start and select Device ManagerClick on "Display Adapters" to expand, and then double-click on your Intel HD 620 Graphics adapterSelect the Driver tab -> "Update Driver" -> "Browse my computer for driver software" -> "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer"Select ?Microsoft Basic Display Adapter?Click ?Next? (note that you screen resolution will likely change) when it switches to the basic driver.Close Device ManagerYou should now be able to install the latest Intel DCH driver you downloaded earlier successfully.  Cheers,

After (finally) installing the latest released Cumulative update on my HP Pavilion dv7, Bluetooth no longer functions properly. Playing Music via Bluetooth to my Beatbox Portable is now "choppy" sounding - behaving like my Laptop is too far away for the Bluetooth connection. Even when I lay my Laptop next to the Device, it still doesn't function properly. Prior to the install of this latest release it was flawless - up to 100 feet away. Now cant use it at all. I note the date of the INTEL BLUETOOTH DRIVER is 3/2016 -- so looks like it was updated in this latest W10 update.

Anybody else? If no known fix I guess I'll have to back out this update, if possible, because I REALLY need this Bluetooth to function properly.

I recently updated the Conexant audio driver to the newest version released on about June 1 using System Update. After the update which all went fine I began noticing that if I left my machine for more than about 30 seconds without it making a sound, the next time a sound was to be played it would take about 5 to 10 seconds to come out of something that seemed like a sleep mode. In other words if I pressed play on a sound file or caused any system sound it would miss the first 10 or so seconds. This did not happen before the update. I used the device manager to roll back the driver and the old driver does not exhibit this problem. I would just leave it on that old driver but the sound is terrible since it seems that the Dolby software is not available for me to tweak the sounds after the rollback.I then reinstalled the new driver and the dolby panel is back but so is the delay after a period of inactivity. This would be nuisance enough but since I am blind, I rely on the sound card for my speech system. Any ideas are welcomed. I could not find any settings about power or sleep in the audio driver panels so I am at a loss. Is there a way to get the driver and Dolby software package that was on the machine before the latest update ran?

I had the an issue but with Yoga 530. First of all, the system simply hanging when I try to put it to sleep or shut down. I hunted down the cause and it seems the new audio driver causing it. I rolled back the audio driver to 6.0.1.8591 from 6.0.1.8703 and the system immediately started to work as desired. I used Lenovo Diagnostics Tool and checked Windows' inbuilt reliability monitor for more details and this helped me to track down what caused the problem. Unfortunately, Vantage software forced to update this driver so I had to switch off this function.

Hi! I've had my laptop for about 6 months now (it was the last model in the store so I don't know how long it has been in use exactly), and am experiencing some issues: Occasionally, the screen freezes, often with simple things like scrolling through Facebook or opening a new tab. With the task manager, I have noticed that 'System interrupts' opens up every time and takes up the whole CPU at that point. After a minute or so, it unfreezes and I can continue whatever I'm doing, until it freezes again. Also, my laptop fan regularly becomes very noisy, often also when I am doing nothing special, like reading a simple PDF or word file.  I suspect that these issues might be connected, but I don't know how to solve them.  I have tried restarting my laptop to help with the freezing and it seems to work for a while (I prefer to put mine in hibernation mode when I close it so I can continue working quickly), but that still doesn't fix the fan issue.
