Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

First make sure that the Audio driver and the dolby will be in sync.

Open Device Manager 

    Uninstall the Audio Device Under Sound and gaming controllers / Make sure to place a check in the Delete driver software prompt.


Now make sure you don't have any dolby components

    Proceed to Control Panel / Programs / Uninstall a Program

                     Uninstall all Dolby Related programs

                             Restart if Prompted

Now install this software driver



When you install this software it will show you a directory path whre it will extract, Make sure to Remember the path


This next xtep is important

Open the directory path where the Audio driver installer extracted the Audio driver.

Check all the folders inside it and find the Dolby Installers, Install the Dolby either Advanced audio or Digital plus.


ANd you should now get your dolby back


Hope this helps
