thinkpad yoga 370 - clean install - lenovo settings dolby missing presets

Q: thinkpad yoga 370 - clean install - lenovo settings dolby missing presets

We got users with "clean install" Windows 10 on the ThinkPad Yoga 370 instead of factory image. in Lenovo Settings, audio, dolby section, the presets that are in OEM load are all missing. we tried uninstall Lenovo Settings, Conexant audio driver, SIF, reinstall, same things - the enable button is there, but no profiles for dynamic, movie, music, gaming, and voice. anyone have seen this issue (or on other machines?), any idea how to reinstall those? i wonder whether we are missing some pieces.

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.)

I've reinstalled windows 10 and i can see that dolby is installed under control panel in sound settings, but there used to be software where you could choose your presets and make your own, and its not on my laptop, I've tried reistalling sound drivers and nothing, can't find dolby drivers on lenovo driver page. My laptop is Y700 15isk

I performed an update check and there is not anything needed and I looked at the download site and there is nothing stating Dolby. Is the Dolby burined in some other software installtion? Thank you.Sal

My laptop is Thinkpad T480, core i 7, 32GB RAM with Nvidia and 1 TB SSD. Initially I have Dolby Digital Advanced Audio(DDAA) Profile Editor as desktop short-cut ( the editor has a graphic equalizer which can be edited). But after the windows Update, the DDAA profile editor has been disspaeared. I uninstall the audio driver, restart and then again install Audio driver from Lenovo website but the editor did not appear. Even in the C drive , I tried to retrieve but failed. Then I go to Lenovo VANTAGE app and found this. Here, the mode can be changed but there is no graphical equalizer like DDAA editor. What's is the solution of this problem?

Hello, Windows 10 just updated the Lenovo Settings app on my ThinkPad T530 (running Windows 10 64-bit Version 1607).  I no longer have access to Dolby Settings in the app...they've disappeared.  I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Lenovo Settings app, and also uninstalling and reinstalling the latest Lenovo audio drivers.  Nothing is working.   Please help, as my volume is very low and I need the volume leveling feature of Dolby Audio.  Thanks.

Just got a new Yoga 720 15", fully loaded version. I saw on youtube (OwnOrDisown) that he was able to turn on the battery meter/gauge. I read that you open Lenovo Settings then click on the gear in the lower left. I have nothing useful in that section, and in the battery settings of Lenovo Settings there is nothing to add percentage to taskbar or similar. Windows 10 also has no built-in battery percentage display (really?) other than the never-convenient hover over the battery icon method. Another setting that seems to be missing is the ability to control the Fn key. All of my F1 thru F12 keys are acting as multimedia keys, not as normal F1 thru F12 keys. Pushing Fn + ESC does not change the behavior. Looking in Lenovo Settings, there is nothing under Input...literally nothing...it has a couple spinning wheels for a few seconds then nada. I made sure I have installed every single download for this machine from Lenovo, still no battery gauge option or Fn key toggle. I literally can not push CTRL + F4, for example. The Alt key also doesn't force the F4 function like I've seen before (like, intelligent Fn switching when you push alt). I'm going to go make sure my BIOS is up to date and will report any change, though I doubt there will be. Kind of scratching my head here. Otherwise, I'm loving this machine.

A:Yoga 720 15" - Lenovo Settings is missing some stuff

OK I got into the BIOS and disabled "Hotkey mode". This restored the F1-F12 keys back to their normal functions, and holding Fn works to do the hotkey functions. Previously, they worked as hotkeys only and pushing Fn + F1-F12 still did the hotkey. Sadly, Fn + ESC doesn't toggle modes. I guess there is no Fn toggle now...except in Lenovo Settings which is SUPPOSED to have it but doesn't.

I normally have a C:/, H:/, J:/, N:/, X:/, and Y:/ drive, but in a mysterious phenomenon I have lost all of those. I have work to save on those drives, and they are inaccessible. I have attempted to go to Disk Management, but I am denied "access rights," presumably as I am not a licensed IT guy. If there is anything that can be done, I need it done.

Hello, I have decided to do a clean install of Windows 10 Professional (x64) on my Lenovo X1 Yoga (20FQ). I'm currently pulling my hair out trying to install Windows 10 in UEFI mode, I want to do this so I can use the full functionality of the TPM chip and bitlocker. No matter what I do I have not been able to install Windows 10 Professional (x64) in UEFI mode, I've only been able to install it in legacy mode. I've tried multiple configurations of the BIOS in terms of disabling Legacy/enable UEFI OS to boot but when I put the BIOS in UEFI only mode the Windows 10 Professional (x64) USB key (that I've created using the .iso downloaded with the Microsoft Download Tool), the machine refuses to boot from the USB key or the PCIe-NVMe when in UEFI Only mode. Can someone point me to a guide for installing Windows in UEFI mode?

Hello, What would one need to play a Dolby Vision UHD Blu-Ray disc on this laptop that has a DV screen? Is it a matter of just waiting for PowerDVD to support DV? What about playing a regular H.265 movie file that has Dolby Vision? Note: for what it's worth, as the laptop has no optical drive it will be a case of playing an .iso of the disc that has been ripped using my desktop PC. The CPU supports SGX. PS: I also read somewhere that Dolby Vision will only be enabled with a future system update, is this still the case? Thanks.

I posted a similar question earlier and people referred me to the Yoga (much appreciated).  However, I was interested in the 2.6 lb carbon version with touch screen capabilities.  Asus has a Spin 7 model that is very good at 2.65lb, but I miss the red mouse toggle in the middle of the keyboard and Asus's track pad was designed too large....causing unintended tapping.  The Yoga, while nice, is heavier than I was looking for.  The 14 inch screen is about 3.3lb? the 12 inch at 3? I thought that some of the earlier Thinkpad Carbons had touch screen and was hoping they would make a return soon.  Thanks,

I got my X1 yoga with OLED almost one month ago. Under Lenovo Built-in App, Lenovo settings, there is a color settings to adjust for viewing needs and eyesight protection. I like the option of Blue Light Cut for Office, which adjusts the blue light output. However, from just now the color settings didn't work anymore. Whatever option I chose, the screen color keeps the same. I called Lenovo tech support, and they escalated me from basic support to premium support. Then they surprised me by stating that I need to pay $199 for this one-time service. I argued that 1) I am under warranty coverage and 2) Lenovo settings are one of Lenovo products, not a third party software. I am not asking a software from other companies. But they still insisted that warranty only covers hardware issues.  Alright, this is Lenovo, which claims to provide high-quality service to their clients. Now I have to fix the problem myself. I created another Windows user, but no luck with the color settings. Does anyone have idea how to fix the issue? Many thanks.
