Windows 10 Beta Users

If you didn't know you were one, you aren't paying enough attention.  Why carefully QA when you can give away something that mostly works and fix all the problems that it emails back to you?  There's a reason my primary PC and my wife's are Windows 7.

Suddenly the external speakers on the Toshiba stopped working.  Headphones plugged into same 3.5mm jack worked fine.  I fiddled with all the myriad sound settings and controls, with no luck.

Apparently Windows 10 installed an update with an audio driver that did not work with external speakers.  I grabbed an audio driver from RealTek and boom.  It all works again.
