    Default audio disappears after windows 8 RP

    Hi all,

    I just installed the Windows 8 Release Preview and my audio disappeared. The audio bars are displayed when I have the volume icon opened but there's no sound coming out.

    Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

    I would read through the various threads in this forum. Sound problems are a common complaint. Usually it's a driver issue. Many of these issues are covered in the numerous threads.

    Hi Gringo,

    Welcome to this Windows 8 forums.

    Completely uninstall the sound driver and install the audio drivers in compatibility mode. Check if it helps.

    Thanks. It seems a old problem. Many threads are talking about this, but no fix.

    It is a beta after all. Many device manufacturer's have not yet developed updated drivers that are Win 8 specific.
