Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 7 Sound Driver and Microphone Driver

About Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 7 Sound Driver



Compare with Thinkpad 13 Gen 1.

There are too few options to choose on Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 7. 

The Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 7 only has two option to choose: 24bit 48000 and 16bit 48000.


Could I update the sound driver to enable 16bit 44100, 96000 Hz and 192000 Hz

as well as the 24bit 441000, 96000 and 192000?



And the recording sound of Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 7 is just extremely bad.

The sound is like a robot talking under water (I don't believe my voice is like that).

There maybe a noise reduction function enabled (which cannot be disabled- even I have unchecked all boxes.) 

and make the recording sound super low quality .

 Could I update the microphone driver to fix the recording sound problem?


There are 3 Personalize  Dolby Atmos settings to choose.

But sometimes they will be reset after the computer restart.


If I choose Personalize 2 to use, after restart the laptop.

The Personalize 2 will be reset but the Personalize 1 and Personalize 3

are keeping unchanged. If I choose Personalize 1 to use.

After the restart. The Personalize 1 will be reset. but Personalize 2

and Personalize 3 are unchanged.


Thank You.


(And this form has a bug that while type for awhile, the backspace key and enter key will be disabled that cannot be use.)
