    Default Sound stop working in Windows 8

    Hi all,

    I have tried a number of times to get the sound working in Windows 8 these include installing Realtek from their website but when i restall there is no change.. In the device manager under the section 'Sound, Video and game controllers' it does show the 'Realtek High Definition Audio'.

    When i right click on the Audio icon in the bottom left corner and click on Playback devices this gives me a dialog box saying that the computer cannot play back audio because Windows Audio Service is not enabled then it asks me if i wish to enable the service. When i click yes it comes up with the Sound section in here it says No Audio devices are installed (this is under the playback + Recording sections). I just dont know what i have done wrong and i am really in need of sound on my computer.

    Thankyou for you time and help.

    Many of these weird or hard to diagnose problems are due to corrupt installations. I would recommend downloading the ISO file again, slow burn the ISO file to a new DVD and Custom Install Win 8 once again.
