Lenovo G50-45 SmartAudio Driver for Windows 7

2018-06-06, 17:02 PM

Hello to the community,

I am basically new here and I am writing because of this problem.

I could not find anywhere the SmartAudio driver for Windows 7, I have tried downloading form all pages on Lenovo Downloads but none of them were for Lenovo G50-45 or worked.

I have Windows 7 64 bit, if that helps, and I need SmartAudio to convert my one jack to be used as a microphone jack and not a headphones one, I know this can be done through SmartAudio settings but I can't install it or find it anywhere.

I am sure that my sound cards works with it, because I am on a dualboot with preinstalled Windows 8.1, and SmartAudio came also preinstalled.

Windows 7 Drivers may not exist if the notebook was built to work with Windows 8 and 8.1 only.

Also - remapping the audio ports usually requires them to be HD audio, and Windows 7 was difficult with those options and even advanced sound cards.

Some of the notebooks that only have one audio jack will need an adapter to break out the mic and headphones into two different ports.

Thanks for your answer, I already have an adapter but the problem is that I will need both sound and microphone for a recording I want to do with Bandicam, and Bandicam will only accept one of them at the time.

Anyway, I will see if anyone of the official Lenovo Mods here will answer or if your answer was the solution.

I am not that familiar with Bandicam, so I can only surmise that it may be having difficulties with the splitter and how it sees the individual options... Windows 8 and 10 are more advanced with audio that 7 was, and that may indeed be the rub.
