    -If you click the start button and then right click on my computer/computer abd select manage.
    -Then in the computer management screen select the device manager.
    -Expand the option for sound, video, and game controllers. Your sound card should be listed.
    -If it is not you will want to download the drivers from the manufacturers site. If it is listed you may want to see if there is an updated driver from manufacturers site as well.
    You can get them from http://support.lenovo.com and then select drivers and then your laptop model.
    -If that does not solve your problem please let me know and we will try to run some other tests.
