Okay Everyone This time I'm really not sure if this is in the right forum. My new Laptop sounds, to me, like transistor radio when I play music. Sure it has Dolby. But. With two tiny speakers on the bottom, it doesn't seem to help much Today I fixed the problem. I plugged in the sound system I used on my desktop PC. 2 XA3021 Altec Lansing speakers, with a matching Altec Lansing XA3021 sub woofer. I've had them for about 10 years now, and they still sound really good. Here's my question. Does the Dolby that comes with the Laptop only work with the built in speakers or does it extend to my Altec Lansing speakers?
