I much prefer to use headphones/earbuds from my HP Docking Station than listen to HP Laptop speaker audio. Today, the speaker decided to take over the audio. I've checked the Driver & it's up to date. Is there some other controlling mechanism?
With the eventual online assistance of an HP Tech, I checked every conceivable problem area including trying 3 sets of earphones. Resorted to switching over to the audio output port in the HP Spectre. I didn't realize until later that day that the HP Dock port being used by my Epson Printer no longer functions. Was able to connect via wi-fi. I concluded that the HP Dock probably suffered electrical damager of some kind with the loss of two ports. Thanks for your advice.
