Hi, I have the same issue! It's definetly the driver that is corrupt. After installing it, the speakers didn't work. I did a full system restore to before the update and it just worked fine until that **** update was installed automatically again.
It creates 2 issues, either you do have sound but no video can play (no browser or program can play a video of whatever format) or the sound devices appear as not installed. It's really a pain in the **** since microsoft forces driver updates but doesn't even make shure that they do work! The option to exclude drivers from windows update doesn't work anymore. You can untick the case, but windows installs them anyways. And you can't manually uninstall it either since it doesn't appear in the Update history. The only way to 'repair' your computer is to do a restore which, for me, takes almost an hour to complete and then go offline.
So it is no option either. Someone has to come up with a permanent fix for this issue, the old driver was only like a month old but worked perfectly! I want it back! Not really a solution since you can't deactivate updates anymore. At least it's not possible on Win 10 pro. Even in the Device installation settings, it doesn't matter if you tick the case for never updating drivers, windows 10 still downloads and installs the Conexant driver.
Download Lenovo Notebook G410 and G510 – Audio Driver (Conexant) for Windows 10 (64-bit) – Lenovo G410, G510. Driver version is Conexant 126.96.36.199. Upon reboot, open Device Manager, locate Generic Audio Driver, right click on it and select Update Driver Software. When complete, reboot again to check if that.
I'm testing a fix right now but would like to try it for some days before claiming it's definitely working. In the device settings under Audio Video controler, you do a right click on the Conexant driver and click update.
Then instead of installing automatically, you chose to search it on your pc and from a list of drivers. It will give you the choice between Conexant and 'High definition Audio driver'.
Pick the High def. One and install it. If in the next days, windows won't replace it by Conexant, it's a permanent fix.
After installing it, your audio (also dolby) will work fine and the microphone which had issues through several drivers will work perfectly. Cortana will react faster to Hey Cortana and I have the impression that my Laptop boots like 5 seconds faster (boot + loading my autostart programs) Greets.
Didn't work for me. After a new start-up, the update service is always switched to on and the driver already downloading.
The only way I could stop that was using the windows default driver. The system won't force me back to the conexant driver. But for me, it's only a temporary solution since the sound is horrible without the dolby digital effects that come with the driver. Conexant really needs to fix the issues and offer a working driver.
That or offer the latest win 8. Canon Mv900 Driver Windows 7. 1 driver that came out before win 10 since it worked perfectly on the new os. Exactly the same problem with my Lenovo 540! All was working fine in W8.1. Did upgrade to W10 and Conexant driver was updated - then not only sound was issue but also no Flash/Shockwave in Edge or IE11. Browser(s) just crashed. Downloaded original Conexant driver for Lenovo E540 from Lenovo (188.8.131.52) now for W10, deleted the old driver and reinstalled from the installer.
All worked fine. It also installed the new Dolby V2 which also worked and definitely enhances the sound. Just installed W10_TH2 and all **** has broken loose again! Now the device driver for Sound, Video and Games shows two drivers installed 1) the Conexant SmartAudio HD 20751 and 2) the High Definition Audio driver from Microsoft (10.0.10586.0 th2 release 1). Flash/Shockwave now freezes again and crashes. Dolby V2 works. Tried to uninstall the Microsoft driver and on reboot it simply re-installs again!
So I have disabled it and for now everything works. I have run the Devices and Drivers Troubleshooter and of course it reports the Microsoft driver as 'disabled' dhuuu I know! I uninstalled the Conexant Driver and everything worked fine with just the Microsoft driver except the volume was barely audible. That is because the Dolby feature is not active. Tried to install the Dolby enhancements separately but on launch it reports incorrect device. This is because the Dolby app is tied to Lenovo/Conexant driver and is not licensed for Microsoft driver.
I figure I have to get rid of the Microsoft Driver but seems no way to prevent it from installing on reboot. If you want Dolby (which is a must for the Lenovo laptops if you want high volume) you have to use the Conexant driver.
