    Dolby pop-up msg since updating to windows 10

    Every time I log in, I get a pop-up message saying:

    "The current Dolby audio driver version is 7.2.8000.17 and the software application expects driver version 7.2.7000.7. Please install a valid driver and software application combination"

    I have checked through my device manager list, and under

    'Sound, video and game controllers' there is:

    - AMD high definition audio device

    - Realtek high definition audio

    Under Audio inputs & outputs there is:

    - Realtek high definition audio

    No sign whatsoever of "Dolby anything" installed. So, how am I meant to update software, that does not exist AND how come I'm getting a message about a Dolby driver that doesn't seem to exist (in my device manager list, at least)??

    This has only occurred since updating to windows 10

    Please, somebody help me figure out how what I am meant to doto fix this. I have an Acer Aspire 5560 Laptop...and yes I have been to both the Dolby website & the Acer website to search for solutions.

    Intel HD 2000 - Missing HD Audio Support Formats

    I have a OptiPlex 390 with Intel HD 2000 connected via HDMI to a Denon X2200W. The "DENON-AVR" playback device uses a "High Definition Audio" controller which has a max. of 8 channels but does not list an HD audio formats in the "Supported Formats" tab's
    "Encoded Formats" section. It has "DTS Audio", "Dolby Digital Plus", and "Dolby Digit" formats but no HD versions. As such, MPC-HC is not working for any HD audio (DTS-HD, Dolby TrueHD, etc.). I thought I read it supports these formats?

    Announcing Dolby Audio for high performance audio in Microsoft Edge

    Dosent actually seem to work. when playing the dolby demo in edge, windows just outputs pcm instead of dolby, same with windows media player etc, But media player classic does output dolby fine.

    Probably explains why Windows kept (until I turned updates off) removing the drivers for my audio device, which has built-in Dolby 5.1, and installing a driver which my Dolby wouldn't work with.

    Not impressed, especially since I do not like and won't be using Edge.

    Cant wait to try this out on my 7.1 sound system, just bought a new subwoofer, I've had to tone it down a bit with movies, it scares me, but should sound good with jazz.

    Loving 10 more every day.

    Forgot to add, loving Groove Music.

    I hope Firefox and Chrome jumps into the bandwagon, my notebook has Dolby Digital Home Theater and Plus in web browsers would really compliment it well; if not then I still have Home Theater and DFX.

    Hi there

    could be good but almost ANY computer sound system is an ANATHEMA to genuine audiophiles -- what do you play on these systems.

    compressed mp3 files, poorly mixed movies / disco /night club thump thump type dreary repetitive music. Games too have annoying horrible sound effects usually as well.

    Decent SACD or FLAC UNCOMPRESSED music of decent source quality played on 1000 USD plus top range reference speakers is IMO the best way to listen to high quality music if you can't go to a live gig,-

    Most Movies these days don't sound that great really on ANY sort sound system (vocals / spoken parts too soft and effects too loud -- I rarely go to the cinema any more for that very reason).

    Good luck to Dolby Labs --but it's the SOURCE music that needs to improve IMO.

    Cheers

    While I agree with a lot of what you say, if you have a good sound system even mp3s can made to be sound good, Flac is better, but not everything is available in Flac.
    As far as movies go, that's another story, but again, you need a very good sound system with a receiver capable of manual adjustments so you can bring the Centre speaker to the front.
    Two good movies to test your sound system are Need for Speed and Jurassic Park, if you don't feel like you're there you need a new sound system.

    It might be worth getting Windows 10 audio to work OOTB before announcing an enhancement to it.

    I might as well be deaf for all the audio experience of Windows 8 to 10 has given me.

    Sounds great with my sound bar. The TV and the sound bar are both LG, so Dolby automatically sets up. Sound bar set to 3D, sound everywhere.

    Hi there.

    The new Jurassic movie seems to be mixed decently -- but for CLEAR dialog often really OLD movies that you see on say Classic TNT channel etc is often better (even though recording is from 1940's-1960's !!!!). A lot of modern movies I find to make them tolerable is to have the SUB TITLES on (and I'm not hearing impaired either !!!!). I just don't know who trains the sound mixers in Hollywood these days.

    As to music --it's everyone's choice - but to me modern Night club music is just so boring and repetitive - basically Thump Thump Thump that I might get more pleasure from a bunch of Road Drills !!! - at least I'd be out in the open.

    I'm all in favour of Dolby etc designing really good audio - but I suppose that many people after years of listening to music through those hideous bud ear phones probably would find uncompressed music on expensive reference studio speakers quite strange !!!.

    I have yet to see ANY computer audio system --expensive or otherwise that even comes CLOSE to my Music speaker set up. !!

    (Some systems are tolerable but most are just variations on the old "Boom Box" theme). A decent sub woofer should be FELT rather than actually heard discretely !! too.

    @worldstream

    --things like TV sound bars are designed quite differently from typical COMPUTER systems -- usually too the DAC's (Digital to analog converters) in the equipment whether from the TV or any surround sound amplifier have a quality of several orders of magnitude better than almost ANY computer sound card you can care to name. For casual listening decent computers can sound OK but in no way can you compare Computers with decent Sound Bars, high end TV systems, Studio speakers etc etc.

    For the "Uninitiated" - Our ears can only hear ANALOG - the sound is created by the speakers vibrating and moving the air in the relevant frequencies. The sound is converted from the Digital recording format to analog which is what we do here in the computer by the DACs in the sound card (built in on motherboard or separate card)..

    At RECORDING the reverse process is true (unless you are recording on things like Vinyl with old amplifiers) - the Analog sound is converted to digital via the Analag-Digital DAC. On a computer the quality is not usually very good either so you lose at BOTH ends --recording music in the first place, compressing it say to MP3 and then on the play back device poor DAC's to convert it back again and then to cap it all cheap speakers or 'phones !!! so if your recorded music sounds mushy or whatever you know where to look !!!

    Cheers

    Yeah well I'm pretty sure my system isn't a computer system, the sub alone was over $1200, I can make Mp3s sound pretty good.
