It sounds as though the driver you installed is not the correct one for your laptop, contact Lenovo Support for the correct driver.
Good Luck.

Install the latest driver for the sound card of your computer. You can find the driver in the website of your computer's manufacturer.

You can also use RadarSync to scan your computer for outdated drivers then you can use the Software to update them.

No sound but volume working


If your computer's volume control seems working but you don't hear any sound from your computer, then you have two possible problems.

1. Driver of the sound (software).
2. Hardware (the sound card or speaker)

before doing any troubleshooting, you need to make sure that all media or sound player are not working because there are times when a certain is not producing any sound. You can try playing a DVD, watching youtube or whichever program where you can try your sound. If all aren't working, then go ahead and do the following.

For the software or driver:

Check the device manager for problematic drivers. If you don't know how to find it, then right click on "computer" and you can find it in the drop down menu or you can go to search and just type in device manager. If you see a device with an X or a question mark on it, then it's the driver that's causing the problem. You have two options when you see that: you can either uinstall and reinstall the driver or update the driver to the latest version.

By the way, there is a software that I am currently using which makes my computer to work to an optimum level because the program automatically updates and maintain my computer's drivers. The program is called RadarSync. If I were you, you download it in your computer.

2. Hardware

If it's the sound card or the speaker that's causing the problem, then you need to contact a technician for it.

If you have further questions, please let me know.

I hope this helps.

My sister in law was messing with my Dell Inspiron 1505. I now cannot get the sound to work. I don't know what she loaded but when I start the computer it says it found new hardware, but the wizard...

Hello, i think you have to check if she muted it on the task bar line, by double clicking it and checking it. Or you can also check from; right clicking on the my computers and clicking on manage then click on device manager, scroll to where you see sound and double click it and see if it is disabled or enabled.
