Hello there,


i had the same issue on my z580, i fixed it somehow. Try this -


1. Go to start menu > manuallly select Dolby home theater > right click> open file location......go to the main file> right click> properties> compatibility> choose Windows 7.

2. go to TASK MANAGER ..select  startup tab.. make sure the program is enabled for auto start.


im having issues with

1. nVIDIA GT 630M Graphics cards ..windows 10 is pariatlly detecting but directx is not at all.

2. lenovo OSD is not working for every function

3. onekey and fan speed touch keys are no longer working 


Let me know if you have solutions for those.

Right click on the volume icon on the taskbar and select "Sounds". Go to "Playback" tab and open properties. Then go to "Dolby" tab and check and turn it on.
