Yoga 2 13 headphone jack no longer working (win10)

I upgrade to Windows 10 technical preview and the headphones were working fine. I guess after a upgrade the drivers changed because I do not see any longer the headphone jack in playback devices.

I´ve tested the headphones and I´ve tested the computer with a linux live cd and the plug is working fine, just not in Windows 10

Also, with the awful realtek drivers, the sound from the speakers is more distrorted then with default windows drivers.


What i´ve tried so far:

Downloaded the lates drivers from lenovo (realtek) - Not working

Fiddled around in realted control panel applet - No change

Deleted the drivers, restarted, win 10 downloaded realtek drivers automatically - Not working

Changed settings so windows does not download drivers automatically and used windows drivers - Not working


I know there is an extensive thread about yoga 2 pro with simular issue, but that is not the same model and what worked there has not worked for me.

Hi Kristijang,


Welcome to the Forums  


As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with audio jack not working in your Lenovo yoga 2.


Try to reinstall the operating system and check for the issue.

Well this was dissapointing. I reinstalled to windows 8.1 just to eliminate the windows 10 installation from the problem but it still persisted. Decided to open up the computer as it had been for repair just couple of weeks back where the ssd was replaced. And there it lay, unplugged from the expansion board, the ribbon cable. It has to be unplugged to replace the ssd and the connector was only pushed down on one side so the ribbon cable must have been just barely connected during the repair.


Now the audio jack is working 100%....and the computer has a fresh optimzed OS installation.
