I recently bought a Lenovo z50, in replacement for my old chromebook. When it arrived, everything was running smoothly, until six days ago. I was working on some college work on my Lenovo whilst listening to some music. I got up to go get some food, and when I got back, audio was only playing in the left plug of my earphones. The speakers were working fine, so I assumed my headphones were busted, and ordered a new pair.
Shortly after ordering a new pair did I realise that the headphones still worked on my phone. Again, I thought nothing of it. The new headphones arrived today and, yet again, they're only working in my left ear on my Lenovo. I opened up the laptop to check any damages on the audio jack, but there was nothing wrong from what I could see. I also checked that the system hadn't muted one of the plugs, but they were both at 100.
Shortly after, I was digging out some answers from google desperately when I came across this:
So I followed the steps, tried both versions of the download, but only got an issue saying "Device Installation Failed: could not find the device for this driver". I tried a few more time, and eventually after the error message, I got a popup telling me to restart my laptop. So I did, and nothing happened.
I'm current using Windows 8. I am not updating to Windows 10, if that's what you're going to suggest.
Please help, my headphones aren't essential, but I have buckets of games that I'd like to have functioning sound for.
