Last Night was formatting my Y560 and when i got into the newly installed windows, the headphone jack was lit red and there was no sound. I reformatted and still no problem. All drivers are installed properly and no headphones were/are being used ever.
How do i correct this?
Problems with Lenovo Y560 so far.
1. Sound Problem (new)
2. NO E-SATA boot (confirmed most other brands have this even on $300 laptops)
3. NO Ultra bay Boot for HDD (confirmed most other brands have this even on $300 laptops)
4. Asia Pacific Support is not giving me an RMA/Return Authorization through support. Refuses to acknowledge problems.
5. Lenovo giving me useless answers, telling me it doesnt work, not supported yet i know if they put some 10 minutes of work into it. it can be done, researching BIOS MODDING to do it myself and prove Lenovo Wrong

That means Windows is trying to output to your SPDIF audio output, which is optical. Go into your Playback preferences, and change from Digital Out to Speakers.

Is your audio device High Definition Audio Device, or Realtek HD Audio Device in device manager?

Before re-installing, were you on super power saver? Try re-installing Lenovo Energy Management suite. The ACPI might've soft-disabled the sound card in the BIOS.
