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

2013-12-01, 15:50 PM

I got the same thing. This all has become a big pain in the  ***, so I just ignore the so called solutions presented on this. If Lenovo is the problem here, I will never purchase another. Furthermore...With all the supposed tech savy ppl trying to solve this problem. I say this...1. Try harder, and 2. Write your answers in English so that the everyday person can understand what you are talking about instead of presuming we all know what you take for granted. It really has become a big joke that such a seeminly small issue has become such a big one. Also the flood of so called soutions to my inbox now go straight to my SPAM file. Useless info!

Thx!  This worked for me. There were no audio devices under audio I/O so bypassed that step (& left the mic/spkr alone).  I had 1 Dolby pgm to uninstall and didn't have to search for the AA thing.  The restart worked fine with Lenovo kicking in at one point which looked like it assisted with the re-install.  Most A/V players were not working.  Now I just need to fix Adobe Photo Express which I may have messed up when trying to fix the other stuff last week...(-:

Hi all!!

 

There seems to be more than one opened Thread on this Subject.  the other one

 

This Tip from Martin Jones works perfectly for G580. I would imagine it will also work for the G780. I tried it here in Germany an all is gack to normal.

 

THIS SOLUTION WORKS AND REQUIRES NO DOWNLOADING, UN-INSTALLATION OR RE-INSTALLING

OF ANY DRIVERS ON YOUR PART.

 

CLOSE ALL APPLICATIONS GO TO DESKTOP. 

 

Click START

Click COMPUTER      (Right hand side option pane, appx halfway down)

Click LENOVO (D)     (Left hand side option pane, bottom option under 'This PC')

Click DRIVERS

Click AUDIO

 

Click SETUP                 Application - Setup.exe  -

 

Click YES in the User Account Control.

 

The Audio Driver InstallShield Wizard will open.

 

Click NEXT

 

InstallShield Wizard will offer to Uninstall Exisitng Audio Drivers & Install Audio Driver after Reboot.

 

Click NEXT

 

Drivers will be uninstalled.

 

Click FINISH

 

 

 

Regards from Germany,

Hello everyone,

Please read D-Faz's reply on how to fix this - I didn't uninstall any drivers and his solution worked perfectly. I will repost his solution (Originally from Martin Jones) below. BTW, D-Faz I only joined this forum to thank you for the simple solution:

 

p.s. I'm not sure if it will work for everyone, but maybe it's the best thing to start off with...
