Windows 7: Dell Latitude D630 in docking station - no audio

Dell Latitude D630 in docking station - no audio

D630, Windows 7 x86 7100 RC1

I am not getting any sound out of my speakers that are connected to the docking station. All the sound comes out through the built in speakers. I check playback devices and "Speakers" is listed with nothing to configure.

Anyone know any tricks?

Download and install the Vista (32/64 bit) drivers for you system from Dell's website. I chose not to install the application but only the driver and everything is working great.

Win 7

Next week I am going to try to install Win 7 remotely on my dads computer (helping him via phone) wich is a Latitude D630. I loaded the lated bios in January before I send the computer to him. Is the intallation without issues or is there something I need to be in the look out for?

If you're running Win 7 32-bit, you need the Vista 32-bit version. Otherwise you need the 64-bit.

If it's not working do you have Winmagic SecureDoc on the laptop? I tried it on a D830 and the Vista drivers don't work when the SecureDoc bootloader is installed.

Audio: for me (Dell D630, running Win7x64 SP1), the Dell support site identified:

R171789.exe (7MB)
4/12/2007, A11
Applies to:
STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio

After installation, it still did not work, I had to reboot, and it worked fine after that.

How to duplicate the audio ports

I want to use both the port that docking station has and the one on my laptop simultaneously so that i can connect to external speakers. Unfortunately I have only one port on the docking station and one on the Laptop. Can you tell me if it is possible to do that?

Let me know.

FYI, I have latest BIOS and latest drivers installed.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64

D830, Windows 7 Ultimate x64 T7500

My Dell docking station is Model PR01x (PA-10/PA-13), which is the driver I search for on the Dell site for my specific model. I found a Vista x64 driver that worked...It allowed the sound to pass from the docking station through the external speakers. The driver I downloaded extract in a folder name 2Y0VM. After running the setup executable, I rebooted and the problem was solved. GOOD LUCK! PS. a lot of the drivers work for several different Dell models...D830, D630, D620, etc.
