    No audio windows 8 preview

    I updated from xp to windows 8 and since my sound blaster Audigy 2 has not been working...I tried everything by updating drivers etc... The problem seems to be I cant get my windows audio started in services... From looking around the solution is editing the audiosrv files but I don't know what to delete etc...Here is what they look like...

    Any help would be much appreciated...
