Lenovo B / G Series :: IdeaPad B590 - No Sound Playing
Jul 22, 2014
For about week I have problems with sound device, so that no sound is played. When I start my notebook it works few minutes, then it stops and when I wanna to test it it gives me error message:
"The device is being used by another application. Please close any devices that are playing audio to this device and then try again.", even when I have no programs running.
I tried all solutions that I found. Disable device, enable divace, restart Windows audio service, Troubleshooter. One think that work (sometimes) is to restart my notebook. But constantly restarting isn't quite the solution I'm satisfied with.
I bought my ideapad month ago and had some problems. It is gt 755m sli model.
While playing any game my screen goes weird(Picture bellow) and PC doesn't respond at all. Only way is hard restart. this problem shows only while gaming ad just a few times while watching videos on Youtube.
I tried taking SLi on and off. No difference just Fps drop while sli off but it still crashes.
Also I noticed that it doesn't crash so easily without power cable plugged in so maybe it´s something wrong with my settings.
I bought this laptop mainly for gaming so this problem gets really annoying.
I have a y550 ideapad (gpu gt 130m) and i have a problem which is similar to others: when i play a game, after sometimes, from 5min to more than one hour, the pc crashes (black screen, but with backlight, harddisk still running, sound buffer played again and again, no response from keyboard) and i have to switch off the computer to start it again and everything is ok.
So i have tested my ram and gpu ram, no problem
I test the temperature - log of gpu-z: Ok except one thing, at the very end, just before the crash, the GPU memory clock goes from 799.2 (which is the speed during gaming) to 800.00Mhz and the temperature goes from 66°C to 255°C instantly. So there is the bug, software bug?
I want to manage the speed of the gpu memory (to put it max to 799.2) but there is nothing in the BIOS....
Faced with the problem. No sound after the laptop. When you try to check the sound device, a window pops up "the device is already in use by another application." But no program is not running. After rebooting the laptop sound occurs. Drivers are all set.
Audio device Realtek ALC269 Win 7 Pro SP1 (x64) with all updates Motherboard 20208 Chipset Intel Panther Point HM77 BIOS Version H5ET84WW(1.22) (11/26/2013)
UEFI boot mode, not Legacy.Drivers for sound downloaded from realtek.com.tw. With standard windows drivers sound is always there. Tried the previous version of the drivers - ineffectually. Could it be that the problem is due to the UEFI boot mode? I do not want to reinstall the OS mode Legacy just to check it out.
My U330P is running Windows 7 with the latest drivers for both the Intel HD video module and the Realtek audio chip. I would like to connect my machine to a TV via HDMI and have it both act both as the display as well as the audio playback device (i.e. TV speakers should blare, not the ones in my Ideapad).
The thing is, I don't have said TV yet and if what I want to do is not possible, I will not bother buying it. I already did look around in Control Panel -> Sound -> Playback in order to find out whether there's an option to set the HDMI port as a playback device but found nothing. I also have the playback devices menu display disconnected and deactivated devices, but the only thing showing is the built-in stereo speakers. The listings in my device manager don't suggest something like a "digital sound whatnot" either.
So in general whether the audio signal can be rerouted to the HDMI output connector on a U330P.
All of a sudden, my Lenovo Ideapad P500 (running Win 8) is having sound issues. The sound will stay on for 5-10 minutes when I start it up or put it to sleep and then wake it up. After that, the sound will just quit working? FYI, the Windows 8 updates that were part of the Microsoft monthly security fixes were installed last week and the problem started today?
I cannot get any audio from my IdeaPad. When I randomly select a mp3 and try to play it with Windows Media Player, I immediately get a mesage that the sound device can't be found or is busy (or something to that effect). I also don't hear sound from internet videos or system sounds such as the start up song. The sound is not muted and volume is at 100%.
I have uninstalled the device drivers for both the Connexant audio and microphone, reloaded them, and rebooted. Same problem.
My question, of course, is: restoring sound from my computer short of a system reset?
I have trouble with my audio driver on my lenovo laptop. After I updated BIOS to version 1.21, my sound stopped working. I tried to reinstall audio driver, but when I reboot my computer, sound is not working again.
I read about flashing BIOS back, but I dont know where to download old version.
I've just bought this laptop, and it came with windows 8 preinstalled, and I'm trying to install Windows 7 on it.
I have a bootable usb, which I've used many times to install Windows on my other laptops, but the B590 just wont do it. I feel like I've tried everything. I changed the boot priority order in BIOS with USB HDD as number 1 but it still just boots into windows 8.
I've tried removing everything but USB devices from the boot order, and now I get this boot menu: [URL]
Which is exactly what I want to boot from, but when I press enter to boot from the USB device, nothing happens.
The USB device IS bootable with a primary partition. I've used these steps to make it bootable in DISKPART [URL]
After having no luck on the B590, I tried booting on the USB on a different computer, and it works perfectly well. Starts installing windows 7. So it seems like the problem is not with my usb device.
I even tried restoring the USB drive and using Lenovo Bootable Generator application to make the usb bootable, with the same result.
I bought a Lenovo B590 model a couple of months ago, and since yesterday when the computer turn on, show me the message "Keyboard not Detected". Obviously when starting the keyboard and touchpad do not work.The machine has not suffered any blow or fall or anything like that.
Yesterday, I bought a Kingston 4GB PC3-12800 CL11 204 Pin SODIMM RAM chip from my local hardware store because I wanted to upgrade my Lenovo B590 memory, which - by default - has 4GB of DDR3 RAM installed. I had already double checked if the memory was compatible with my B590 by calling Lenovo Support and searching the web (yielding this post, for example). Both sources confirmed upgrading should not be a problem if I did not exceed the 8GB limit. However, after I had hooked up the RAM, I found that it was not being recognized by both my OS (Windows) and my BIOS. They are still indicating that I only have the factory 4096MB installed.How can I make my system utilize this RAM upgrade?
When I was determining which RAM to buy, I did also check what kind of memory was already installed in my B590 by the manufacturer. I unscrewed my notebook and found one memory chip, brand Hynix, of which I assumed it was one chip of 4GB. However, results for looking up its serial on the web show that it is actually one 2GB DDR3 SDRAM chip. I checked my hardware but could not see any other chip (although I am 100% sure my system has 4 GB RAM installed by the manufacturer).
The touchpad shows only as a mouse, and scrolling & the fn+f6 option do not worked, I had it on win 8&7, worked on neither of them. I couldn't find a dedicated driver for it, and I couldn't find a post that states whether this touch pad should have those options working or it was never intended to.
I am using a B590 booting from a mSATA SSD (Mushkin). I am booting in to Ubuntu 12.04. Everything worked fine for half a year. Last week booting from the SSD did not work any more. Now the mSATA SSD is not visible in my BIOS, under Windows 7 oder several Linux distros. I cannot access the mSATA SSD at all. I am especially surprised that my configuration quit working from one day to the other without any action from my side. The usual set of questions:
Is there something trivial that I do wrong?Is there a way to check the sanity of the drive and/or my notebook?Is there any way to revert to the previous extremely satisfying state?My BIOS-version is 1.18 (06/27/2013).
So, I have B590 Lenovo Notebook with Windows 8 and the Wi-Fi doesn't work well.
When I try connect at home, my Wi-fi works fine. Not problem. But when I try another one - e.g. In School or somewhere in the city, the others wi-fis don't work. Windows 8 tell me something like "It's not possible to connect" .....
I've bought a B590 and installed a Win 7 64bit. I have installed all available drivers from the support page and have the following issue:
Device Manager: I see 2 graphics devices Intel HD Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 720M
The discrete card is disabled with error code 43 and has an exclamation mark near it [URL] .... Moreover, if i start the NVidia Control Panel it gives me an error with text: "current display is not connected to nvidia GP" GeFoerce Experience is not starting with a back-end error [URL] ...
Now here are the ways i tried to use but it did not work: 1. Enable high performance and update with manually downloaded nvidia driver 2. Do the same with HDMI cble connected to a plasma 3. Disable enable the device (screen goes black, than to normal and everything stays the same) 4. Format c: reinstall Win8.1 64 and install all drivers - same thing 5. Format c: reinstall Win7 64 and install the graphics drivers after everything else (h1d9d9.exe h2d903.exe) 6. Update GT720M drivers from device manager (driver is up to date) 7. Run a high-performance 3D game (War Thunder) - it uses Intel HD
What else can i do? I saw people with switchable graphics use some kind of application to specify the game-apps that should use a discrete videocard. I don't have such an app to specify my games.
I just bought a B590, model 20208, with, i3-3110m, 500GB HDD, GeForce 720M.I installed Win 7 64bits, but in Device Manager, before installing all the drivers appeared Other Devices an Unknown Device with thise details: code 28, Device type: Other devices; Location: on Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Embedded Controllert . After installing drivers, the problem persists.Another problem was with PCI express but resolved with Intel Management Engine Interface drivers.Other problem resolved was with the GeForce 720 M videocard; wasn't recognized but resolved with the last driver from GeForce site. the last problem remained it's The Unknown Devices.
has anybody else had a crackling sound when playing sound example music/games. i always get it in my right speaker and how can i fix this i believe this is a software/hardware issue as whenever the sound goes off the crackling deaseses.
I have been using this for 4-6 months this happened before and i bought it to the service center i bought it there twice, and now today it still shuting down while playing not overheating but this pop up shows up when i start it again, whats wrong and Under my laptop is a air condition running under it so not overheating.
I just bought a new Y510p and added the second gpu the day after I received the package. Was working alright until I tried playing BF3 and Crysis 3. Every time I try to play, the laptop goes on battery by itself even when is plugged-in. Then after the game starts to lag, I need to quit the game and disconnect and re-connect the cable for it to recognize that is plugged-in. Don't know if it has something to do with my power plan (high performance, optimized battery health) or what.
I bought a Lenovo Y510P 4 days ago. The laptop is amazing and i love it execpt for one proble,... while playing games i get a message about every 5 minutes saying that my ram is full and to exit out of the game
i have my virtual memory setting set to No page file for both of the things that i could change the setting to (there were only two different things in the virtual memory options which where Windows 8 and (lenovo)).
what should i set windows 8 and Lenovos virutal memory usage to? i thought i was suppost to select no page file but that has not worked.
i have 8gb of ram and while gaming 60 percent of it is being used so i know its not full
For 2 weeks or more now, my network is giving me lagspikes/disconnect when playing online games like League of Legends every time there is a bit more action on the map(ping goes to 900+).
Have windows 8.1..I am using Wi-Fi, here's a screenshot of my drivers.I dont have this problem in another city, where I'm studying(I insert cable there for connection(campus network)).Also here at home, my brother has the exact same computer and w8.1 and he doesnt have any connection issues.
I dont have torrents, antivirus updates or any of that going on while playing.We have maybe 4 computers and probably 1-2 phones using the net aswell, but that doesn't seem to be the case, as I said these problems should have occurred with my brother's computer aswell? Also when these devices are not in the house, I still suffer from lagspikes.
I just got couple of days old Lenovo IdeaPad z50-75, running on AMD FX-7500.First I jsut now noticed that my CPU runs at 1.07 Ghz, before it was always over 2 Ghz or so which was good ... but maybe I touched something some where in powr settings or something and now it stays on 1.07 even when cpu pretty much utilised. I have set power plan to high performance and also Energy manager is set to high performance mode and Conservation mode is on. why it doesn't clock itself up ? I feel that it is slower than before.
I've had my Y510p (8GB RAM, DVD Ultrabay option) for a bit more than four months now and it's been working perfectly for most of the time- however, two days ago, while playing a game the computer or the game itself froze. After trying to bring the Task Manager up/kill the game, I decided to restart it- I turned it off, but once it came back on, it had decided to start "Preparing Automatic Repair". After several times unsuccessfully "repairing" (after which again "preparing") it (it had given me an error, something with Srttrail.txt file), I decided to look up and search the Internet for people with a similar/the same problem- none of the methods worked. So, I decided it could've been from software I've installed or similar- I didn't have things THAT important (I haven't made any back-ups, nor a recovery USB), so I made an initial state lenovo recovery using the Novo button.
After several more fixing methods (unsuccessfull again, people suggested getting into the command promt, using the chkdsk command, but it was in a drive called x:, couldn't find other drives/changing from UEFI to Legacy Support in BIOS settings, I changed them, then changed them back to defaults) it started giving me the "IPv4/IPv6 Network 0 (MAC Adress) boot failed" errors and several tries more, now it constantly gives me the "Windows boot Manager boot failed" error, followed by the IPv4/IPv6 ones. after which it takes me to a blank bright-blue screen with my only cursor visible (similar to what it does i I tell it to go to Lenovo recovery menu now). Also, after trying to turn it on (in the current/last state) it gave me the 0xc000000f error. So, what's happening (the HDD is recognized in the BIOS, the laptop itslef hasn't been moved more then four or five time and used properly)? I have no instalation/repair disc with the laptop.
In a few days I'll get my IdeaPad U310, and since it comes with 4GB DDR RAM, I'd like to do a upgrade to 8 GB. I understand it only has one slot for RAM, so I'll buy one stick of course, but I don't know if it's the same size as used in a desktop PC, or is it some mini-sized RAM stick?
I also need to know the voltage of it, is it 1.5V or different?
Whenever I try to install the ELAN/Synaptics driver that I download from my laptop's support page I get an error saying: no Appropriate Driver to be installed.I'm on Windows 7 64bit...I've tried tons of drivers and I'm starting to get seriously annoyed. Non of them work all of them throw error messages and I'm getting more and more irritated with the obnoxious tap to click functionality. I don't even need the driver as I need the annoying tap to click disabled and maybe some kind of scrolling functionality would be nice if it's possible.
I bought my laptop from france so windows is in french ... I installed language pack core of system is still in french. How could I install legit windows 8.1 on it that is in english.
