Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

No audio from external speakers

\015 After windows automatic updates on 7/21/09, on my Dell D430 laptop running on XP pro, the external speakers on my laptop no longer work...the earphones still have all of the sounds / audio that I would expect.However the external speakers that are connected via a docking station no longer produce audio. They worked fine yesterday.Perhaps the win update I ran this morning did something to create a conflict with the docking station?\015
