Lenovo Y50 Dolby Digital Plus

Hey guys,

I've had a Lenovo Y50 for a while, now I noticed  it only used 50% of my sound, so i put on Dolby, however, the sound sounds worse than with the 50%, like it added more noise/sounds than I originally heard in songs. I wanted to see if I can adjust this or anything, but I can not find any drivers anywhere for it. Is there somewhere I can download or adjust this? (I do play my music at 100% sometimes, it used to sound fine since the output was always 50% max...) I am quite sure my boxes sound fine, but it does sound like there is a disbalance when listening to music I always listen to, even when i plug in external boxes to improve sound/volume.
is there a driver for dolby somewhere or another way to adjust this?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Lenovo Y50 Dolby Digital Plus

Welcome to the Forums Emisys.

 

Try this Uninstall the Audio driver first from Device Manager, be sure to do it this way.

 

  1. Under Device manager, Open sound and gaming controllers, now right click on your audio device (realtek)

----> Select uninstall, A pop up should appear asking to delete driver software, be sure to place a check on the box.

 

2.Restart the system and it should be back under device manager, Repeat step one and do this again until you only see High definition Audio under Device Manager, This indicates that you are running in a Generic Audio driver.

 

Now to reinstall a synced Audio and Dolby driver.

Download this driver

Realtek Audio Driver for 64-bit Windows

 

And this time install this all the way thru.

 

Restart the computer installation.

Now Open the Path that it gave you earlier, ex. C:/drivers/Realtek

Look inside that realtek folder and look for a folder named Dolby or DolbyGUI

Inside that folder you will find installation files

     Dolby Advanced audio

     Dolby Theater

     Dolby digital plus

 

Install the one that came with your system and you should have it back

 

Update us how it goes.
