Audio problems with Thinkpad z60t 2511 after installing Windows 7

I would appreciate any assistance in solving why I cannot get sound/audio after installing Win7 on this Z60t.

 

After a clean install of Win 7 on to an upgraded hard disk, I have downloaded and installed all the drivers/software from the Lenovo web site that was listed for win 7 but cannot get sound to work.

 

Messages displayed say no speakers installed.  But the speaker buttons in the keypad do give the visual bars when raising /lowering sound or turning off sound.

 

Is this a defect with Lenovo not supporting win7?

 

Thanks for any help

 

Pete

Hi Pete,


Welcome to the forum!


Are there any yellow thingies in the device manager? have you tried Windows Update? When I installed Win 7 the update took care of audio driver.


Hope it helps.

I had the exact same problem and fixed it and got my sound buttons back (notthe display portion though)

 

1) Download the XP SP3 Driver  install file 

77a224ww.exe from this site

 

2) Execute the program- it will run and upack all of the device drivers and install file

 

3) Click on <my computre> and run < device Manager>

 

4) Click on  Sound and video Controllers

 

5) Execute the update device driver and use the choice that allows you to specify where to look and Point it to the /drivers/win/audio /smaxwdm/w2kxp  dir where the soundmax drivers are found and load it

 

Worked just fine !

Jack, YOU ROCK!  I haven't had sound for a YEAR since installing Windows 7, have tried all the other things I could think of (i.e. uninstalling and re-installing device, Windows update, etc.), and this morning I thought, "Hey, I'll search Google for 'z60t Windows 7 audio' and see what comes up".  Took me 5 minutes, and I HAVE SOUND AGAIN!!! :smileyhappy:  THANK YOU!
