I have a problem with sound - hearing echo, which is caused by internal subwoofer. Disabling all sound effects (Control Panel > Sound > Playback, Speakers, Properties > Enhancements) solves the problem, but I also get lower sound quality (subwoofer gets disabled, lower volume, etc). Is there any way to solve it?
I am using Windows 7 64bit with latest driver from Lenovo website.
Sound quality was perfect when I was using Windows 10, but I just dont like them so Im sticking with 7.
Using Windows 10 64bit audio driver fixed the problem.

Great find ! Got the Y700-17ISK with Windows 7 installed and i had the exact same problem.
After trying several driver versions without solving the issue, i found this post!

Thank you for posting this! I was going nuts. It sounds horrible on youtube.com. This doesn't completely fix the issue I can still hear what sounds like echo/distortion. Did you echo go completely away?
To make most of the sound echo go away I had to check the disable sound effects.

I am having the same issue. Installing the Windows 10 64-bit sound driver did not fix the issue for me, it may have become better to some extent, but it is still echoing and the music is unenjoyable with the subwoofer on.
I have tried the generic driver on Realtek's homepage, same issue.
Installing any of these drivers introduces a high pass filter to the main stereo speakers making sound poor, so I ended up uninstalling all drivers and using the subwooferless Microsoft driver, which does not use high pass filtering. Still would like to use the subwoofer.
Could Lenovo fix this please?
- no echo
- no high pass filter on the stereo speakers
