Ideapad y410p Audio audiodg.exe memory leak issue on windows 8.1 x64?!

2014-03-27, 22:54 PM

Hi guys,
I stumbled upon this issue awhile back and since there are other y410p owners here, I was wondering if anyone found a solution to the issue of the audiodg.exe's memory in task manager spiking up every time a sound is being played from your y410p?

The only solution I found for this was to have "disable all sound effects" checked under "enhancements" from speakers options: http://i.imgur.com/TTbiv35.jpg

I am on Win 8.1 x64 with this audio drivers installed: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS037907
Does anyone know a fix and not have the audiodg's memory spike up beyond 4-5k besides the one I provided?

It spikes up around .5 mb per ping sound you make when you move up/down the slider as shown in the 2nd image below:

BEFORE (with sound enhancement disabled), notice audiodg.exe is around 5k (normal):

AFTER (with sound enhancement enabled), notice audiodg.exe is around 81k (not normal):

I may think this is an issue on windows 8.1 side but I am not sure right now.

It seemd unralted, but I have been experiencing problems with sounds. In testing the speakers, sometimes the left worked and the right didn't, then all worked, then none....

this was caused by AUDIODG.EXE crashing (since Win 8.1), and disabling the sound enhancement has been a fix.
