X200 Vista 64Bit Audio Drivers

2008-11-14, 1:57 AM

I let System Update attempt to update the Connexant audio drivers and it failed because the update that was available was not signed.  64Bit requires all signed drivers.  Now I can't even get back to how the machine originally shipped as the driver available for download appears to have the same issue.

 

 

Pointers to where I can find the right driver?

This isn't an issue with UAC.  This isn't an issue with an ActiveX control and the authenticode prompt.

 

This is an issue with 64Bit Windows only loading signed drivers.

If that happened with the latest driver from Lenovo, I would disable the Vista 64 signed driver requirement and install it.
USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

EXCUSE ME?how do you expect to get an answer without reading your "COMPLETE" post? try following this method and the next time mind your language if you can!

 

 

go to cmd

2. Right-click on the shortcut and select Run as administrator

3. When the command window opens, type or paste the following and press ENTER:

Bcdedit.exe /set nointegritychecks ON

4. Reboot and then try installing the driver.

Great tip on how to disable the requirement for signed drivers.  Little hesitant to do so at this point but going to give it a try at least to see if it fixes the issue even though I may go back.

 

 

Ultimately Lenovo just needs to release a signed driver...

Please everybody keep in mind this extract of the forum rules: "Treat others with the respect you wish to receive."

 

 

 

@samavedam_vijay: I'm not sure if that method will work because I think that Microsoft has released some updates to prevent the use of it.

 

@ChrisKinsman: Have you installed SP1 or not?
