my Lenovo G510 has Windows 8.1 64-bit.
In the system menue of Hardware and Sound I can see two entries:
1) Dolby Digital Plus Advanced Audio
2) Dolby Digital Plus Advanced Audio (32-bit)
Clicking on the first entry a control panel appears. Does this mean that Dolby Digital Plus Advanced Audio is always running in the backround? There is no entry in the systray.
Clicking on the second entry this error message appears:
Your current installed version is 18.104.22.168 of the Dolby Digital Plus audio driver. The software needs the driver version 22.214.171.124. Installe a correct combination of driver and software.
What to do with this? I searched for a solution and drivers but couldn´t find anything.
Thanks for your help.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I don´t know why but there were two Dolby Digital Plus installed. I uninstalled the 32-bit version and now it works.

I’m glad to hear that the issue is resolved after un-installing the 32-bit version installed in the computer, this might have occurred after updating to Windows 8.1 as most of the files in the Windows 8 will be saved in the partition.
Do post us back for further queries.

I have a U530 Touch and was having a similar issue, only reversed on the drivers... it said I have 126.96.36.199 and needed 188.8.131.52. I uninstalled my realtec driver, rebooted.. Windows reinstalled it automatically and POOF! Dobly was working.. Odd.. but whatever.. easy fix.
