I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys, So I recently bought a Y710 IdeaCube and it came with Dolby Audio pre-installed. I thought it to be pretty lackluster so I decided to uninstall it and go for Realtek Audio instead. Turns out, the Dolby Audio tab is still showing in Speaker Properties, stopping Realtek HD Audio from showing a lot of its features (I believe. This may not be the issue but some people have suggested it). How on earth do I go about removing Dolby?

Dear Lenovo, I have recently purchased Y710 Cube 15-ISH with H170 that support Kaby Lake CPUs (according to Intel's ARK), but requires just a BIOS upgrade. Since it was available only with i5-6400 here, I want now to upgrade to i7. So I want to ask when we can expect upgrade of BIOS on Y710, so I can upgrade my CPU to Kaby Lake i7, which is basically same price as 6th gen but faster. Other mainboard suppliers already provided their customers such updates. Best regards,Adam Strzelecki

Hi, I was troubleshooting an issue with my laptop and Microsoft suggested turning off unnecessary startup items. So I turned off the bundled Dolby X2 stuff. It doesn't appear to be vital to the system, but it does use system resources. Is this bloatware? Does it do anything useful? Is it a candidate for removal? Thanks. Edit: It also appears to be a security issue. https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/product_security/len_4884 Heh.

Hi,I'm now using Ideapad Z510. After upgraded to Windows 8.1. I'd went to the Lenovo website searching for new driver update.But, after i install the "Realtek Audio Driver 6.0.1.7023", the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is not running(audio sound not playing through).And, the "Dolby Digital Plus" is running instead of "Dolby Home Theater V4".Then, when I try to reinstall the older version "Realtek Audio Driver 6.0.1.6954" from Lenovo website, the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is running again.Truly, the "Dolby Digital Plus"'s sound is crisper and louder than "Dolby Home Theater V4". But the sound of "Dolby Home Theater V4" has more bass and more function (like Graphic Equalizer, more Intelligent Equalizer etc.).Is this an update or what?What should I choose?The newer driver (for Windows 8.1) or older driver (for Dolby Home Theater V4)?  Thanks. (confused now) @@

A:Dolby Home Theater V4 changed to Dolby Digital Plus after Realtek Audio Driver update Windows 8.1

I only installed audio driver ver. 6.0.1.6798 which includes Dolby Home Theater V4. Since no issues are encountered I have not updated to the latest version for my unit (ver. 6.0.1.7027). Does this Dolby Digital Plus mentioned by you better than V4 in some aspect aside from the ones that you already stated?

Hello guys, I have been searching around about this but they always end up with a headphones that has built-in Dolby Audio. I just bought a USB Headphones and when I use it, the Dolby software always disabled. If I plug in a headset/earphone base on 3.5mm jack the software work again. Does Dolby Audio software only run on a specific hardware? anyway my laptop has built-in Dolby Advanced Audio v2 and the sound card was Conexant SmartAudio.

Along with this, there is a little more question. The headphones I bought (Dragon War Beast) is a 5.1 channel sound (said on the box & the website). But I honestly confused if it was real or not cuz in Windows Audio it only show stereo channel on Speaker Setup as well as the manual said USB 2.1 Stereo Vibrating Headset (different from the box). Is there a way I can test if its a stereo or 5.1 sound?
Thanks in advance. Any help is always apreciated, and of course sorry for my bad english

A:How can I use Dolby Audio with USB Headphones

When you use USB headsets, you bypass the PC's sound card (and add on's such as the Dolby). The USB headset has the "sound card" (conversion from digital to analog) built in.

The 5.1 is a function of the USB headset and again does use the PC sound. If the source, such as a game, is 5.1 then you will get the 5.1 (simulated) sound. Unless there are multiple speakers in the headset I don't see how it can get "real" 5.1 sound. Its like my LCD HD TV, it has two stereo speakers but simulates surround sound.

A:Dolby Advanced Audio Problem after 8.1

I don't have Dolby specific setup, but you might want to check your device manager directly to see if a driver for Dolby appears under the expanded menu as shown below. If so, you can select "update driver" and have it automatically search Window Update or use the latest driver (if you have it handy). I would personally prefer the latter option if available. Good luck.

hi there.
I have Lenovo ideapad S510p and currently running on Windows 10 Pro (64Bit). I upgraded it from Windows 7 Ultimate.
I recently upgraded my Audio driver using device manager on Windows 10 pro. When i first upgraded the audio driver (Around a week ago) Dolby Advanced Audio v2  had gone and instead of it i had Dolby Advanced plus in the RealTek and now again when windows installed update today Dolby Advanced plus is also gone. I didn't update Audio driver today.
I just want to know if Lenovo has removed Dolby Advanced Audio v2 or Dolby Advanced Plus after the recent Windows updated. I never got any error for the audio. I checked in Task Manager,  Device Manager, Program Files, Program Data, App data, etc and i didn't find even a folder of Dolby Advanced Audio v2.P.S. When i upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 10 Pro, I didn't have any problem.
 
Please let me know what has happened to Dolby Advanced Audio v2 and how can i get it back if i want to?
 
I hope i will get a reply soon.
Thanks in Advance.
 
Regards.

Hi Sentient , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Everytime Windows update perform its automatic update it would replace current drivers you have and replace it as it sees as more updated version from its own database changing the OEM drivers version to a Microsoft native drivers. 
 
You may try to initially perform system restore before the date windows update occur since it would create a restore date . If you manage to restore older driver version with the Dolby audio then stop automatic updates for the drivers to prevent this from auto changing it .
 
Else moving forward you can also install the audio drivers intended for your model compatible for windows 10 and see if that would be able to restore the dolby enhancements . 
If that fails to restore , you can try versions from Windows 7 and right click to run on compatibility mode.
 
Update us as it goes .

Just upgraded to Windows 10 on my Ideapad N585. On startup get a message Dolby audio driver didn't load. I seem to remember this issue upgrading from Win 8 to 8.1, but don't remember the fix. Do we have to wait for an updated driver? I have sound, but not sure what driver it's using. (haven't even found drivers yet) Another issue I discovered is that I couldn't turn off the touch pad using Fn+F6. The Elan driver settings do have a box to disable the touch pad when using an external pointing device, though, so that's not a major issue.

The dolby digital plus turns itself off.  This started maybe two months ago?  I lost the Dolby back in September with another Windows update and got it back.
 
I have noticed that if you have it in the foreground it seems to stay on better.  If you do anything with the laptop, it turns off.  Sometimes minimized it will hold being "on".
 
I do have a OneLink Pro Dock.  The lenove solution center is no longer seeing the audio in the dock, i just noticed!  However "Speakers" shows both ports.  I use the port on the laptop to connect to speakers and hearing aid gear (realteck Hig Definition Audio).  I believe Windows has set the drivers to "Audio Endpoint"...?

I updated my E430 with the Lenovo software update app and now get the following message when windows loads. Dolby Advanced Audio---------------------------The current Dolby audio driver version is 7.2.8000.13 and the software application expects driver version 7.2.7000.11. Please install a valid driver and software application combination. Anyone have the same issue?
