Dolby Home Theater v4

2012-11-02, 5:42 AM

This is so frusterating, I have bought Lenovo P580 laptop and the  new Windows 8 came out so I updated it to this Windows and I didnt like it so I had to downgrade to Windows 7 and of course all my programs were deleted including my pre installed softwares. My new audio is not that good compared to what it was before and I think it has to do with Dolby Home theater. I  updated my drivers BUT i couldnt find any drivers specifically for that. 

PLEASE HELP ! I dont know what to do

It's not a driver. It's just audio-enhancing software, and Lenovo seems to have forgotten to put it on the P580's downloads list. But here you go:

No. This is exactly what he needs; it's the same version of the Dolby software I'm using on a P580. I take it you didn't read his post. He's saying that he returned to Windows 7.

That link is not working either. It did not even start up once I downloaded it. Is Lenovo looking into this or not? I feel this laptop is absolute garbage without the HD sound.

Re: Dolby Home Theater v4

I just upgraded my IdeaPad p580 to windows 8 professional. The upgrade went well, but I am now getting this error:

 

"Unable to start the Dobly audio driver. Please restart the computer or reinstall the driver if the problem persists."

 

I did restart my computer, and the problem still persisted :)   So I went to the support website and downloaded the audio drivers for windows 8 and reinstalled them, but I am still getting this error. Does anybody have the proper link to download the needed Dolby audio driver for Windows 8?

 

Thanks,

Joe
