    You can easily fix lenovo laptop sound problem by using these tricks:

    • Try to increase the sound on your laptop. may be you have muted the audio by mistake. that’s why you are going through lenovo laptop audio problem.
    • check for the driver update. most of the time, people struggle with sound not working issue due to the outdated driver.
    • plug in the headphone into your lenovo laptop, and then try to play an audio. let’s see if you can hear any noise now or not?
    • After following all these instructions, if you are still going through audio problem. i will suggest you to reset the laptop.

    note- factory reset process will delete all application installed into your computer. so do it on your own risk.

    When you face sound problem with your lenovo laptop. first of all, you need to check following things.

    • Driver issue.
    • sound is muted.
    • speaker problem.
    • incorrect audio settings.

    These are four common reasons. let me explain about how can you fix them.

    Driver issue-  when people have an outdated or incompatible sound driver into there lenovo laptop. it will surely cause sound not working issue.

    in this case, you should check for the driver update first. to update the sound driver you may follow the instructions given below.

    • Go to device manager.
    • Click on sound, game and video controller.
    • Right click on your sound driver and click on update.

    Uninstall Duplicate Sound Driver- 

    you should also need to be sure about duplicate or multiple sound drivers into your laptop. if you find two or many audio driver into your lenovo pc. you need to go ahead and uninstall them.

    you can find the latest driver from lenovo’s official website

    System restore- 

    If both steps doesn’t work for you. you need to go ahead and restore your laptop to the back date. when the sound was working fine.

    I am going through lenovo laptop sound not working problem, I have tried to follow the instructions given into this post, but it did not work for me at all.

    Sometimes, it is giving me sound and sometimes, it looses the audio automatically. in that case, i have to unplug my speakers and re-plug them again.

    once i do that, i start getting the sound. but it is little hard to do this for me all time.

    Sometimes default media device for sound becomes to change. You have to make the sound as default media for sound. Steps are below:

    1. Open Control panel in windows and click on Sound.
    2. Single click on Speakers/ Headphones and select Set Default from below.
    3. Now your sound device set as windows media sound device.
    4. This will solve your Lenovo laptop sound problem.
