U310 with Windows 8: Dolby Home Theater error

2012-11-13, 14:11 PM

Hi, 

 

After every startup I get an annoying pop-up message of Dolby Home theater that the Dolby-audiodriver was not able to start.

 

This phenomenon just started popping up since I upgraded from W7 to W8.

 

Dolby Home theater came with the Ideapad so is there a W8 update for this issue?

Or perhaps I should just uninstall Dolby, but what are the consequences when I do so?

 

Lenovo U310 - i5 - Windows 8 pro

Re: Dolby Home Theater v4 for Windows 8.1?

Hi:

 

This should work.  Download new win 8.1 drivers.  The one that has the dolby driver is the Conexant Audio Driver for Windows 8.1.  Make sure you choose the correct 32 bit or 64 bit for your machine. I'd say it is the 64 bit.

 

Good luck!

I called this same issue in to Lenovo several months ago and they told me it was being worked on.  Could someone from Lenovo please check on this?  The quality of sound using Dolby Home Theater is so much better on the U310 (back under Windows 7) it is almost unbelievable.  There must be other U310 owners who would love to have this work again.  I know I would.  Thanks for any help u can provide.

Dolby Home Theater v4 for Windows 8?

2013-10-13, 22:33 PM

 

Hi y'all at Lenovo community,

 

I have read several posts with this issue but until now I couldn't find a fix, so maybe this time - approx. 6 months later -  I will have more luck ... !

 

So the question is: is there a Dolby Home Theater download  for the U310 under Windows 8 that does the job properly?

 

Thanks in advance,

Jim

Re: Dolby Home Theater v4 for Windows 8.1?

Hi, 

 

I recently purchased a U310 last month and since I updated my windows 8 to 8.1, my Dolby Home Theater v4 is not working.  I get the pop up as well.

I ended up uninstalling it and now I don't know how to get it back.

Someone please help.

This is quite irritating.

 

Thanks

 

RS
