  • Docking a Lifebook E8410 causes loss of sound

    G'day all,

    One of our bigger customers use Fujitsu Lifebook E8410's.

    After rebuilding (factory settings using the recovery partition) and updating XP to SP3, if you mount the lappy on the docking station, the sound card stops working.

    Re-installing the sound card driver DOES fix this problem, but I was wondering if anyone has any idea why it stops in the first place..

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated,

    Is it a Fujitsu or a third party dock?

      Fujitsu I think, we had to return the dock we borrowed last night, I didn't get to look at it that well..

      Funny thing was, after rebuilding the latest laptop, i plugged it in to the dock and the sound worked fine...

      Might chalk it down to the users for now...

        Figured out what it was..

        XP SP3 for some reason removes the Realtek HD Audio Driver..

        Simply downloading it and re-installing it fixes the issue...

        BTW, it was a Fujitsu Dock biggles..

            Hahaha, all good mate,
            It's common sense in Forums otherwise they don't work properly...

            I know :VB: doesn't stand for VisualBasic, it's one of the emoticon codes, but which one?

              It comes in a green can and the first word is the name of the state we live in. Need any more clues?
              1 1 was a racehorse.
              2 2 was 1 2.
