Erhan, I followed your blog and go to the Vista drivers and see 7 items that start with "HDA". I've been getting an error code 10 - "This device cannot start. (Code 10)". I then tried other drivers in that and other folders. I either get my speaker icon "X"ed out or it shows activity but no sound.
A great tool (although it didn't fix my problem) can be found at http://www.belarc.com/index.html - their Advisor tool will let you know about the hardware and drivers on your system.
I uninstalled the non-working driver and the Advisor put in the "correct" driver. Once again, the equalizer shows that sound is bouncing up and down but nothing comes out of the speakers or headphones when I plug in.
WFT? This is crazy.

For windows 7 sound driver issue. Once you have downloaded and installed the drivers from Lenovo's site, go to device manager and go to sound driver and then update driver. It will then give you the option to either search automatically or browse computer for driver software.....Choose the latter and then go to where the Lenovo driver installed to, which is C drive..Drivers and then click OK...Restart .....Sorted

Scottwebb, thanks, but I've tried that, several times and with all the different drivers recommended for my model. I've tried all the methods listed in this discussion list. All with the same results; I can see the equalizer bouncing up and down yet no sound.

I tried everything that you stated to do 4 or 5 times. I tried the Soundmax 1st then the Realtec 2ns. neither worked. NO SOUND! My model is the (0768-A53). Also in the Device Mgr. under other devices, I am showing an exclamation error with a "Base System Device" what's that all about? Other than that my system runs better that it ever has.

I have the audio driver problem too with my Lenovo 3000 N100 0689-A31 when I installed win 7 on it!!
I had tried everything but nothig works... search in the lenovo support page and install the drivers available for my model and the others too.
In the device manager the driver appear as installed as "high definition audio device", and in the volume control (down at the right, where´s the clock) it say "Digital audio (S/PDIF)" and when I play a song the equalizer move up and down.

Good luck with that. At this time, I think we have to accept that we won't be getting help from the fine folks at Lenovo.
I purchased a usb sound card and plug in my headset/earphones for when I want to listen to something. They go for $15 and up. Much better than waiting around for a pipe dream.
Just remember the lack of support the next time you purchase a computer.

okay, the fix for SoundMAX that worked for me after two days of trying and failing is:
I am on N100 0689-5ka
however, I haven't managed to get the Mic to work yet, but atleast the speakers are playing music!
so if any one figures how to get the mic going, please share!

If you’ve sound problem with Windows 7 for Lenovo Drivers.
I give here a link for audio driver for window7. It’ll work properly, but you find a method to installation it.
1. Execute the file name as: 7ta303ww. It will be findable on below site as:-
After downloading the file, execute it. It will be created as folder of driver under the driver C. Find it on C: driver / Win / Audio.
2.Main file is name as Audio. Install it, find the good result for sound.
If you can’t do so please contact by PM
