Dont pay any attention to the windowes incompatability messages, just load the downloaded drivers,,if you need to,,un-install the old ones,,then go into advanced setting for your sound,,and map your device to the correct player,,ie, sound blaster,,Ac97 etc

    Sometimes it is better to just start all over again and re-install your windows, and then your drivers.
    The one tool i really like to use is: Driver magician, it will look for all the drivers your machine needs and then it will download and install them for you.
    It's not a hundred percent,but it sure saves me time and effort.

Hello Bartlett, Hi!, looks like you bought a laptop fresh with no OS installed. You need to buy a licensed windows OS, be it XP or 7, The OS installation is kinda long to describe here, watch youtube for installation of OS.

You can download all the drivers you need for Lenovo 3000 Y410 Laptop from the below link

Just scroll down the page for Audio drivers for both win XP and Vista,click on the blue version number to download the one you want.

Note : Incase you have win XP,some people has issues installing the xp driver with sp3 installed,the driver seems to work with only sp1 and sp2.So if u have SP3 and unable to install xp driver, do one of the following.
1) Uninstall SP3 and install SP2 and then try installing the driver for XP
2) Download Vista driver and install it with windows compatibility mode set to XP SP2.

Sound issues

The model is suggested to have a "Crystal series" sound card, one link provides older drivers.
Extracting them to a separate folder, letting XP see if it can use them is one solution. Otherwise, see if your model is listed here. and follow the steps to get XP drivers.
