Thinkpad 10 Dock no sound problem

2014-09-06, 9:55 AM

Hello,

 

I just purchased a Thinkpad 10 tablet and the Dock for it.

 

The Dock's headphones output DOES NOT WORK. I tried and tried again, for nothing.

 

I need help!

 

I didn't find on Lenovo's support site anything like a support request form. For the money I paid for this dock, THAT SUCKS!

 

I hope I will find some help soon, otherwise I will return evrything and take my money back.

 

I didn't expect this from Lenovo...

 

Alecs

I have these docks on campus with the Thinkpad 10.  Have you tried going into Control Panel and setting the defaul sound to the Dock?  I've seen it where it does not make the default when docked.

There was no Dock in the Sound options in the Control panel. I returned both the tablet and the dock. This is completely unacceptable. Also, the Thinkpad 10 tablet hardware supports Windows 8.1 64-bit. But Lenovo, in it's "wisdom", doesn't allow you to install it. Your only choice is to order your tablet with Win 8.1 64-bit preinstalled. I talked with a lawyer and he said this violates my consumer rights and Lenovo is liable for compensation. I'll sue them. Have a nice day everybody...

You can installed Windows 8.1 Pro pretty easily.  You need to a flash drive with 8.1 install on it. But you have to make it UEFI compatible by doing the following

 

Start with a blank USB key of at least 4GB capacity.

 

To install Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows 8 in UEFI mode, the 64-bit versions of the respective operating system DVD media will be required.  A full Windows 7 or Windows 8 DVD media is required.  An upgrade DVD may not function correctly during base operating installs.  

 

To create UEFI bootable USB media that can be used to install Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows 8 64-bit operating systems on Lenovo ThinkPad, ThinkCentre, ThinkStation or ThinkServer computers, complete the following steps:

 

1)   Open a Command Prompt with Administrator privileges in either Windows 7 Pro or Windows 8 Pro.
2)   Insert the target USB boot media device into an available USB port.
3)   Type "DiskPart" in the command prompt.
4)   Type "List Disk” (make note of the disk number of the target USB drive).
5)   Type "Select Disk X”, where X is the target USB drive noted in step 4.
6)   Type "Clean”.
7)   Type "Create Partition Primary”.
8)   Type "format FS=fat32 quick”.
9)   Type "Active”.
10) Type "Assign".
11) Type "list volume".
12) Type "Exit".

 

Now copy the entire contents of the desired operating system onto the newly created UEFI boot media device.

 

If the AUTORUN.INF file fails to copy from the Windows DVD media to the USB key, then use Notepad to create a new AUTORUN.INF file on the USB boot media by following the steps below:

 

  1. Open the AUTORUN.INF file on the DVD media with Notepad and copy the contents.
  2. Create a new file on the USB media with Notepad and paste the contents from step 1.
  3. Save the file as "AUTORUN.INF".

 

 

This worked for me.
