Dolby Advanced Audio driver on Windows 10

IdeaPAD 310-15, came with Windows 10

How do I install Dolby Advanced Audio on this machine?

Supposedly has Dolby audio - but the interface doesn't look like the interface for Dolby Advanced Audio and the equalizer doesn't do anything. Also, in the list under Windows Control Panel items, it lists "Dolby Audio" and not "Dolby Digital Plus Advanced Audio".

Have installed the latest audio driver from Lenovo. Also tried deleting everything related to Conexant and Dolby and reinstalling the driver from Lenovo, as suggested for a different model on this forum. Nothing changed.

Also tried downloading the Windows 7 driver - it would not install - says "PCEE needs to be installed".

Is there any point in pursuing this or should I just give up?

Re: Dolby Advanced Audio driver on Windows 10

Hello MsDogwood

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

I believe the issue will be with Win 10 and Dolby compatibility.


As per this post:


Section 3 - application limitation


Or a previous forum post.


Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

Re: Dolby Advanced Audio driver on Windows 10

Thanks for your response. I had already guessed that Dolby Advanced Audio is not compatible with Windows 10. But I didn't upgrade to Windows 10 - the laptop came with Windows 10 installed. I don't see why you would include "Dolby Audio" when it apparently doesn't do anything. Dolby is no help - they only direct you to the computer manufacturer.
