How to fix Speakers on T430 ???

2014-03-07, 5:10 AM

I got a good deal on a new Thinkpad T430 i7-3520M... and I re-installed Win 7 Pro 64bit and all went well with the laptop running fast and I've done all the Windows updates and some Lenovo updates (except for non-essential bloatware) so life is good, except for one small detail:  the speakers won't work.

I installed the Reltek Audio driver thru Lenovo update as well as the Dolby software, but they still won't work.  Before the fresh windows install they worked fine, so speakers should be good.

And, I can get sounds when I plug in my headphones so there is some audio to be had... just not coming out of the laptop's speakers.

I checked in the Windows device manager and it shows the right driver is installed... any idea where to go from here to diagnose this issue?  :?:

Hi,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

I’m sorry to hear that speakers in your Lenovo ThinkPad T430 is not working.

 

First of all, try to reinstall the audio drivers.

 

Under control panel -> sound -> ensure that speakers are set as the default audio device.

 

To confirm it’s not a hardware failure, try to boot from a Linux live cd and check if audio works fine there.

 

Please let me know the happenings!

 

Best regards,

Mithun.
