Wait, the package has Dolby Digital Plus ADVANCED Audio, while the default one on my Laptop writes Dolby Advanced Audio v2. Which is the latest version of Dolby AA?

Re: G780 - Windows 8.1 update - Can't Start Dolby Audio Driver

So I followed the first few steps of one of the early instruction sets. Uninstalled dolby and all related files, all the speaker and audio files as well. Problem is my d drive is empty (maybe I never correctly set up the one key recovery sys?), so I have no way to reinstall dolby. I downloaded the windows 8.1 conexant drivers, but they can't install because they can't identify an appropriate device to install to. Currently NO SOUND on my computer (G780). Please help me get my awesome audio back!

Solution for Ignoramuses

 

I don't have the technical expertise to work in DOS.  When I called lenovo for help, they said that the problem with the dolby function was a glitch in Windows 8.1 that Microsoft would have to repair.  All that lenovo could suggest was that one revert to the Windows 8.0 operating system.  This would require that one save a backup of all ones material before one wipes the hard drive of Windows 8.0 before reinstalling Windows 8.1.  I'm not confident that I can do that without screwing up.  Alternatively, lenovo suggested that I live with the non-functionality of dolby until Windows releases Windows 8.1.1(?) with a fix.  I decided to go with that since dolby isn't very important to me.

 

However, I discovered that in deleting the conexant dolby audio file in my earlier attempts at a solution, I had permanently decreased the maximum audio volume significantly.  I solved this by going to the lenovo website and downloading the conexant audio driver for Windows 8.1 for the G780 (my unit.)  This downloads as an "update."  It restored the volume to its former level.  I doubt that I have dolby but the warning notice that it's not working isn't popping up anymore.

I had this problem too.  Does it affect the sound of music you put on to ipod, or if you copy CDs from your computer while Dolby is not active?

I followed everything, and at the search C: drive step, I searched "aa" and I didn't see dolby anything... :smileysad: just a bunch of capital letters all jumbled!! T^T
