    Default Windows 8 Release Preview: No audio output device is installed

    I have installed Windows 8 Release Preview on my computer. I cant hear any sound. Windows 8 says that no audio output device is installed.

    I've tried to use the Audio Troubleshooter but it doesn't solve the problem (it says that hardware changes might not have been detected).

    What can I do to get sound back?

    Go to the Audio Device manufacturer's web site and find the latest drivers. Most likely Win 7 drivers as many developers have not developed Win 8 specific drivers yet.

    I would suggest you to install the drivers in compatibility mode and check if it helps.

    Since Windows 8 has not been released yet not all drivers are going to work with it. Some drivers are very specific about the operating system version, so you might have to wait until the manufacturer releases Windows 8 drivers (if they make them for your model).

    a) Uninstall the driver if it's already installed. Then when you install or reinstall it, right-click (or press and hold) the driver, and select Troubleshoot Compatibility.
    b) Click Try Recommended Settings, and in the next window, click Start the Program.
    c) After it installs, see if it works correctly.

    Thanks for answers. I checked and all drivers are the latest. I have tried to re-install the OS, still not work.
