You may need to take your laptop to a computer shop to see if maybe it’s infected or something like that.  Oh sure, Jaws could have broken your windows installation somehow but I just don’t see how it could have in the way your describing.  Obviously something is wrong so that is why I’d recommend having a pro look at it.

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.
