Windows 8 Audio suddenly stopped working

  1. #11

    So I did a Refresh and the audio is working (surprise). It took an hour to do the refresh and at least another 3 hours to do all the Windows updates. My list of programs that were removed total 130+. I expect I'll have to re-install at least half to get back to my working environment. All that just so I can hit the Win key and see those pretty tiles :-)

    Too bad, that is a hassle but sometimes is needed. That says Windows was corrupted and the problem and not the sound card/driver.
