Re: y580 red led audio out

Hi setaf!

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Good job on replacing the hard drive and install Windows 10 OS to make your laptop faster! However, it's kind of weird to get a red LED on the headset port. It's possible some parts were not installed properly when you assembled back together again. Can you send us a video or picture of what you're referring for us to better look into it? Thanks.

Re: y580 red led audio out

Welcome to the Lenovo Community setaf !

 

Although I am not an owner of your model and the documentation on the LED is lacking, I did find another forum discussion that explains that the red LED is an indicator that audio jack is set for digital output.  That the LED is off when the analog option is set.  Here is that discussion for your reference........

That setting would be controlled by your audio / sound drivers.  I assume you have the Realtek sound drivers installed.  If so, check the Realtek Audio Manager in the task bar to see if there is an option to switch from digital to analog for the audio jack.

Re: y580 red led audio out

By chance in Windows Control Panel is there a listing for RealTek?  If so, check out its options.

 

Otherwise given the age of your system I doubt Lenovo will be releasing a Windows 10 auto driver.  If your current Windows 10 audio driver doesn't support the LED you could try using an older Windows 8 driver for your model from Lenovo. You would have to install driver in Windows compatibility mode and also disable driver updates from Microsoft.  Otherwise Windows 10 will just automatically re-install the newer audio driver they supply.

 

Windows 8 driver......

 

 https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/IDEAPAD-Y-SERIES-LAPTOPS/IDEAPAD-Y5...

 

Example of using Windows Compatibility Mode.....

 

https://www.windowscentral.com/how-install-non-compatible-printer-drivers-windows-10

 

An article on how to disable automatic hardware updates......

 

https://www.howtogeek.com/302595/how-to-stop-windows-10-from-automatically-updating-hardware-drivers...

 

 

Personally...... if everything is working good, I would just leave it and enjoy the new LED.
