The Lenovo ThinkVision USB Soundbar is a monitor-mounted speaker system that not only draws power from a USB port, but also accepts an audio signal through a single cable connection. This helps increase the output of audio created by Lenovo laptop computers. It is possible to run into some issues with the ThinkVision USB Soundbar hardware. A few troubleshooting steps can help you overcome any problems with these speakers.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Check the USB cable connection running from the Soundbar to the laptop computer. If the USB cable is not inserted completely into the connection port on the laptop, the audio is not going to play through the speakers.

  2. 2

    Disconnect the USB cable from the current connection port and insert it into a different USB connection on the computer. Some USB ports fail to detect certain hardware, and this might be the case for these speakers.

  3. 3

    Increase the volume on the speakers with the volume control mounted on the left of the device. The speakers may just be muted, causing the audio to disappear and not play.

  4. 4

    Click "Start" to bring up the Start menu in Windows on your laptop. Click "Control Panel" and select "Sound" (you may need to switch to the Control Panel's classic view to see this option). Choose "Lenovo ThinkVision USB Soundbar" from the list of audio playback options. If the ThinkVision is not selected, it is not going to produce audio.

  5. 5

    Push the right side of the speaker system left toward the monitor so it snaps into position. This is the adjustable side of the Soundbar, allowing you to place the device on larger and smaller monitors. If you do not have the sliding speaker position snugly on the monitor, the Lenovo ThinkVision USB Soundbar is just going to fall off.
