    I recently updated Service pack 1 and Window IE 8 on my laptop. Upon rebooting, I lost my audio sound, as well as my touchpad mouse capabilities. Why is this happening? What good is it to do the updates...when it screws up all of the critical settings that were working fine before those updates occurred.
