Re: The big JAWS update question
A JAWS update can not cause your system to stop playing sound.
Something else might be goind on your machine.

Subject: Re: The big JAWS update question
I spoke to FS support and they as I figured were stumped. What they did suggest and what I'll probably do is to grab the drivers off Dell's website and manually install them with a thumb drive since I for whatever reason am not even getting an internet connection even though I'm hard wired to the router. I'll deal with the internet thing later if I can get sound back first.
I may even run down to BestBuy and buy a cheap external soundcard just to see. So... Anyone have an suggestion on a cheap external sound card by the way?
I might even try giving Microsoft accessibility a call over the weekend. The saga continues.
I always download the exc. File and install that way and have no issues.
Also, I see that those who are having the issues are seems to be all running dell computers.
My sighted brother has a dell desktop newer model and always seems to have some dell related issue with a driver or two when a windows update is installed.
So, I have been involved in two computers updating to the latest JAWS update with no problems. Before I continue I just want to get a feel for if any other people are experiencing problems such as the one described on the list. I don’t want to hit anymore update buttons if there is a high likelihood that I may put some of my computers on the frits. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
