Re: x120e Stuttering Audio

Hi All,

For those who is unable to flash their X120e via BIOS Update Utility, appreciate if you could post it at this thread.

For those who are able to flash it via BIOS update utility, appreciate if you could post here as well.

Please note the that I've placed some steps to ensure before you flash the BIOS, do check if you have done the 4 before you flash the BIOS.

Re: x120e Stuttering Audio

So you have Bios 1.11... uhh... Do you have Version 3.48 of Power Manager installed? If so and you're still stuttering, if you uncheck ThinkPad Power Manager from the Startup Tab in MSConfig and restart the X120e, do you still have the audio stutter? (Just trying to see if the usual suspect that plagued us earlier is causing the issue for you or not)

Re: x120e Stuttering Audio

I upgraded the bios to 1.11 and uninstalled the power management software altogether.  Still stutters.  Hard to recreate, but happens at leas once every 5 mintues when listening to tunes.  Have not tried video, but assume same issue perists.

Even after uninstalling the Power Manager, the offending .dll that caused the earlier audio stuttering issues in the thread is still present when starting up.

 

You'll have to manually go into MSConfig's startup tab and disable the ThinkPad Power Manager's .dll from starting and then restart.

 

Also, the audio stuttering that many were experiencing before was easily recreatable by putting the laptop to sleep and then waking it up, then checking to see if the audio stutters.

 

If even after this you're still getting audio stutter (or the audio stutter occurs without the need to put the laptop to sleep and waking it up), then it's a new problem that'll require new brainstorming and a new solution Smiley Sad.

Re: x120e Stuttering Audio

@All,

 

To those who are still having the audio stutter issue do ensure the following.

 

  1. BIOS upgraded to 1.11 (remember to reboot before flashing BIOS)
  2. Power Manager 3.48
  3. Power Management driver 1.62

Drivers for X120e available here

Re: x120e Stuttering Audio

I have the same problem on an Ideapad U460, same bad support by phone, online is just as bad. drivers have not been updated for over 2 years on their site and if I have to restore my settings, I will sell the Leovo laptop and never look back.  I miss Dell and Apple so bad right now!
