Smart Audio broke with Driver Update - Need link to previous driver

2009-06-10, 22:08 PM

Running XP

 

I was running Audio Driver 4.92.2.0(Vista) / 3.64.2.50(XP) 2009/04/13 which came in through System Update before it shut down.

 

I installed 4.92.5.0(Vista) / 3.64.6.0(XP)  2009/05/29  

 

Because I wanted these fixes.

 

- Fixed an issue where the built-in microphone never be off when an external

microphone was connected. This might cause reverberation.

 

- Fixed an issue where microphone volume level was too low.

 

Now Smart Audio in the Control Panel won't initialize. It just errors out.  I've tried reinstalling.

 

At this point of course I would prefer to go back to the working dirvers, but they came through System Update and I can't figure out if they're stashed on the HD or not.  Does anyone have a link to the Driver Archives so I can download the older one?

 

Thanks in Advance

Well

 

I tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling, and the download doesn't seem to be complete because it's now saying a required file isn't found.

 

Anyone have a link to the full Smart Audio app?

 

Thanks

I found the old drivers at

http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/6ea107ww.txt

and

http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/6ea107ww.exe

 

I installed them and SAII works. Installed the update again and it broke. So, I'm back with the old drivers for now.

The latest audio driver mess up my sound. I guess I have to downgrade in order to get sound working again.

I can not believe Lenovo keep ignoring this bug.

Yes the newest driver package's software part isn't working, most possibly this is due to some missing files - you can compare the files in C:\Program Files\CONEXANT\SAII   with older versions of the driver and you will find there are some executable and dll files missing.

 

But if those bugs from the older version really bother you, I guess you can upgrade to the new one since the driver part may be alright, it's only the software interface that crashes.

I need the latest driver update, because my x200t keep having" beam forming" error.

Only the latest sound driver fix it. Apparently, Lenovo fix one and let another one out.

Can someone please tell me what "beam forming" is?  Sounds a little scary... :smileyindifferent:
