Docking station sound doesn't work on Dell D830 with Windows 7

Docking station sound doesn't work on Dell D830 with Windows 7

EDIT: I can only mark one answer as the correct one but the actual solution was a combination of two comments (updating the BIOS to A15 AND installing the Sigmatel audio drivers).

"I had a similar experience to yours. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on a D830 with a docking station and the drivers (Sigmatel 6.10.0.5614, A09 for STAC 92xx C-Major HD Audio) wouldn't install saying the device didn't exist. However after I upgraded my bios to A15 these same drivers installed without issue and now the jack on my docking station is fully functional.

Wasn't sure if the drivers didn't work as in they didn't install... or didn't work as in they didn't change any behavior after they installed.

You can disregard if you're already running A15."

"The Vista drivers for the Sigmatel sound device solves the problems on Windows 7 32 bit.
