Lenovo Z60m

Okie, while I go off and search for answers, I'll pose this one,..

I installed build 7100 on my Lenovo Thinkpad Z60m last night, ran windows update, all the hardware seems to be found okay, but for some reason the audio side of things is seeing the laptop as having S/Pdif audio, which it doesn't, and doesn't seem to find the speakers.
Any idea's how to swap it around to the actual hardware?

This worked for me. It didn't give me the hard controls back, the ones located above the keyboard, but at least I have sound now.

Realtek

Having a look at that one now.
I actually went back to XP for the laptop, as I needed to have Adobe OnLocation running reliably on it.

I take it your laptop see's the Audio chipset as 'realtek' branded? Mine comes up as 'SoundMax' under XP with the Lenovo OEM drivers.

Solved sound problem with z60m

I had the same issue. Tried with Realtek, but mine is Soundmax and it didn't work. And after a milion try-and-see-what-happens solutions I finaly succeded.
Here are the steps:

1. Read this so you'll know what the problem is:
Audio not working (speakers only) on 64 bit Win 7 RC

2. Download this Soundmax drivers:
Analog Devices SoundMAX HD Audio driver 6.10.01.6570 Beta Windows Vista(32/64)/Win7(32/64)

or you could find them elsewhere...

Versions 6.xxxxx are for Vista/Win7...

3. After you install this driver (I used manual install through Device manager but it's the same) you should have the sound, but the speakers are still "unplugged". Now if you press volume button on the top up or down the speaker will "magically" start to work.

4. Now we have to keep them plugged always and to do that download from Lenovo support "Hotkey Features" drivers and install them. Voila!!!

I hope this helps,
Cheers.

Try the manual install

1. Device Manager -> Update driver software...
2. Browse my computer for driver software
3. Let me pick from a list...
4. Sound, video and game controllers
5. Have disk...
6. Find "ADIHdAud.inf" in SoundMax drivers you downloaded
7. Answer that you do want to install this.

It should install now... Now you should have something like this in attachment. Now procede with the "Hotkey features procedure" and that should be it...

Hope this helps...
