Windows 8 sound problem

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
Ive updated my pc to windows 8 (clean install).
And cant seem to get my sound to work at all, i get the clicks for volume adjust though??
Ive checked services and they are running, also im using realtek 2.70 driver? which is the correct one.

My motherboard is xfx x58i with an i7 950, not overclocked or anything.
Cant seem to find anything in the bios related to audio.
Any help would be great as im pretty stuck.

Thanks smile.gif

already tried that ha, it says sound is outputing and displays the graph going up and down.

Get nothing out speakers, or headphones, on either front or back.

reinstalled them 4 times, it is the latest version according to realtek it works with win8 ??
with windows 7 it used windows update to install it, is windows 8 drivers wise really this bad, feels like windows xp drivers wise, the nvidia driver windows 8 installed doesn't seem great either.
Is my pc outdated? lol

Interestingly enough I have the exact same problem with nearly the same rig, I built my brother a new machine for xmass with my old gear, and it's the same board, the XFX X58i, along with the same chip, and an XFX HD5870 video card. When I put the system together I had no issue with sound as I was using sound via HDMI out of the HD5870 video card, but when he got it home, his old ass stereo uses 1/8" and he had the same problem as you. The icon looks like it is playing, the bar moves across, but there is no sound. We tried installing the Realtek 2.69 drivers with windows 8 support, but the problem persists. XFX have become an epic pile of **** on their support side in the last 18 months (never buying their gear again) and have all but abandoned support for all of their legacy hardware. You might need to chock this up to incompatibility.

Further note, if you buy a new Nvidia card series around GTX 680 or later, you will need to keep an ATI video card in PCIe slot 2, otherwise it won't work. Don't ask me why...but all I can say is **** XFX.

I will let you know what happens, he's going to see if he can hook it up another way, either via the optical out, or via some other way.

Do the default drivers installed by Windows not work either?

To me it seems like sound card drivers cause more issues than just about anything.
