No Sound in Windows 8?

Goldenbarstewart
I have an ASROCK MB G41M-VS3 with latest BIOS - integrated sound - Nvidia 9600 GT PCIe - 4 GB RAM. All else seems to work but the sound - from Device Manager the sound drivers are indicated to be up to date - and DriverMax also indicates that all drivers are up to date. The sound works fine on the other systems on the same computer - Win XP x64, Win 7 x32 and Vista x32. Any ideas?

    ...let windows 8 install it? If you let windows install (during windows setup or from windows update) the drivers, sometimes it doesn't use the best driver for your devices. Try installing the chipset driver and/or audio driver from the ASRock website and see if that helps. You may also want to try going to the VIA site and look for a driver for the VIA?? VT1705 audio codec (the audio on your motherboard) for windows 8 if the one from ASRock doesn't work. You may have to install in 'program compatibility mode' for it to function correctly (if there is no windows 8 driver). I had a similar issue trying out windows 8 preview on an old ibm thinkcenter S50. Good luck.
