    GE is advising their customers that this issue can be avoided by not switching the external display off and then switching it back on during normal monitor use and by not using a USB extender cable with active hub. If the sound loss occurs during normal operation of the monitor, users can enable the sounds back on by restarting the monitor. A software patch will be provided to correct this issue permanently.
