In device manager expand the sound devices. Uninstall (not disable) them all and remove from disk. Now reboot and reinstall them. Did you do that already?

Oh yes. Multiple times actually.

Do you have a Lenovo install disc? or is a retail Windows 7 disc?

You might need to install the driver and software from the lenovo disc. I would say these would act the same as downloading from Lenovo, but during install, the program might pick up on the fact that it is in fact installing from a certified Lenovo install disc. I don't want you to have to purchase it from Lenovo if you don't have it though or if it won't actually help.

Have you tried contacting Lenovo directly by phone about this issue?

It's a retail disk. All I've got from anyone is the recovery partition, something of which I've avoided. Also, I have not contacted Lenovo. I honestly feel like this is all Windows 7's fault!!!

I think this has to do with the proprietary audio software that your laptop uses. Did you clone the recovery partition as well? can you load the recovery and see if it can repair it/install its own drivers/software?

if all else fails, reinstall windows. and install the driver but not the software. if it still doesn't work, install the proprietary software. if that doesn't work, contact Lenovo and get a install disc from them.

I guess I am all out of advice otherwise. wish I could help more

I'll look at the recovery partition.

Oops. I dunno what just happened. Well this gives me an excuse to try cloning again, I guess. The image is big.

When do you get that screenshot? When trying to boot to recovery partition? If so.. is original disk still attached to system? Did you clone recovery partition as well?

Yes I did. This happened after booting into recovery then leaving it as soon as it said "Please back up before pressing the check box"
