Lenovo T 520 sound problem

[ Edited ]

Hello,

I just installed Windows XP x64 on my new Lenovo. The problem is that sound driver doesn't seems to work. I downloaded all drivers from site but have a lot of Unknown device in Device Manager. Sound driver looks like is ok in Device Manager but yet i don't have sound.

Any help will be appreciate

 

P.s. Before few hours i used windows 7 and there is no problem with sound.

 

Thank you

Hey there vinsbg,

 

Here is a link for the audio driver that should support Windows XP.

Unfortunately, T520 wasn't designed to run Windows XP, and you are bound to run into issues like this. There is no guarantee that the driver will work well, if at all.

Re: Lenovo T 520 sound problem

Why go to XP???? Window 7 is so much better and makes excellent use of the hardware. XP is officially dead.

Good luck figuring it out.

Hey there vinsbg,

 

If that driver isn't working, then unfortunately, it is probably a compatability issue, and there isn't much you can do. The best thing to do, is to reinstall Windows 7, which is what the T520 was designed around.

The alternative is always exist. You have a choice to buy a laptop from another vendor.

Why don't you take your own advice and stop spamming this forum; you detract, not add, anything of value.
