Well the dock found it's driver automatically, and it had drivers built into it's own flash drive too. However I did find the most uptodate drivers from hp too, and did install those. Since I dumped the IDT sound driver off the computer, I get the sound function as I wanted it, with the only thing that dosnt work exactly right, being the illuminated button that mutes the sound... pretty heppy with where i ended up actually :)

So, it turns out that the IDT driver changed the behavior of the sound system in a way that I didn't want, how bizarre!

Well, I did a fresh install, but downloaded and installed the drivers from the HP website. I didn't want all the bloatware that came with it originally, so I didn't do the factory type refresh.

Actually, I decided to uninstall the IDT audio driver, and got the functionality that I desired. Apparently that driver was changing the way the system behaved. The only other thing that changed was that the light/button that mutes sound stays as if it were muted all the time now (which is how it was prior to the re-install) however the function of the button works.
