This is most probably happening because there's a chipset driver for the
motherboard that you haven't installed. There should be a basic driver CD
that came with the system, or you can determine the motherboard make and
model (it's usually screen-printed on the board) and from that you can find
the manufacturer's site and get that driver set. Installing that is the
first thing to do after a Windows reinstall.
If you don't have luck with finding the chipset drivers you need, another
posibility is to go to the Windows Update site (start/all programs/windows
update, at the top) and letting the site look for drivers you need. It's in a
list of sections of update, on the left.

No sound from external speakers with toshiba dynadock

if using XP, go to start control panel , sound and audio devices.Under the audio tab make sure the C Media CM106 sound device is selected under sound playback. Then under the volume tab set the volume somewhere in the middle or at the top if you don;t have active speakers . Then Under Speaker settings advanced, make sure the speaker setup is set to Laptop Stereo speakers. Also make sure the speaker volumes are up on the speaker volume button. click ok. If no result check that the cm106 sound decvice was cemented in as I saw it dissaper when I thought i had slected it. I think the key thing here is the device and the laptop speakers setting.
