Yoga 13 after Windows 8.1 update - audio output problems

2013-10-18, 13:55 PM

My Yoga 13 got some audio output trouble after the Windows 8.1 update today.

 

No audio output: Video App, xbox Store (trailer), Spotify desktop app

Video but without audio: VLC player

No problems: Youtube movies in browser, system audio (notification sounds)

 

Guess I need some driver update?

 

Thanks in advance!

Solved! See the solution

Download the latest Conexant Audio driver from Lenovo Support site.

 

Go to System -> Device Manager and find "Sound, video, and game controllers" and right click "Conexant SmartAudio HD" and click "Uninstall" (DO NOT let it delete the driver from the computer).

 

Reboot and reinstall the downloaded driver.

 

That worked for me.

While i'm waiting for an updated audio driver compatible with windows 8.1, here's a quick fix:

 

Disable audio enhancements:

Go onto speaker properties (either through control panel, or via the audio icon in the system tray). In the "Enhancements" tab, check the "Disable all enhancements" checkbox. That should be a good band-aid for the problem...until they release windows 8.2!

I wasn't sure why the link had 'mobiles' in it. But I concur that its the correct link. Its the same link as from the
Drivers and software - IdeaPad Yoga 13 Notebook page (http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS032590)

further note - looking at the downloads page - there's loads of new drivers for Windows 8.1 looks like you'll probably need to install all of them

To resolve the "no video" issue go to: Device Manager > Dsplay adapters > Intel (R) HD Graphics 4000. Right click and go to properties. Click on Driver Tab. Click on Roll Back Driver. You should get Driver Version 9.17.10.2843 automatically back.

Now you should have your video back.

 

Importnat notes:

This is only a temporary solution until Lenovo comes with a working 8.1 driver

You will need to set you Windows Update to manual because after every update you will have to go again through the procees above. When setting Windows Update to manual do not forget to manually update (especially your visus/malware protection) regularly.

 

LENOVO: Let us know when a new working driver is available. Vesrion 10.18.10.3282 on the support website doesn't work for my laptop.

USERS: Please share if driver version 10.18.10.3282 is working fine on your laptop.

I had same problem. Downloaded updated drivers from Lenovo website and have been going around in circles ever since. Neither of the drivers on Lenovo (Windows 8.0 or 8.1 ) will install without failing. Now that I have re-installed the original driver, it will successfully install, but now I have a new problem, no sound at all.
