    I did an experiment and I updated to this version.

    How do I confirm I have the same version installed?

    In the control panel it displays

    Is this the one?

    I installed the new driver and the issue appears to be fixed. Man I was sweating on this one. Took a long time to download. Got a popup from Windows 8 saying my system could not use this device. Did system restore. Back to square 1. Problem still there. Second attempt went a lot better. After uninstall computer took about 10 minutes to restart and showed zero activity. Then did install and another restart, another 10 minutes. Everything appears to be working well now but man does Windows 8 leave you hanging for a long time and shows no signs of life. Makes me nervous. Confirmed that I now have the in device manager so the operation was a success. Like "Curly" once said " If at first you don't succeed, keep on sucking 'till you do". Thanks Guys.

    Hi guys, I just got a new Windows 8 laptop, but there is no sound coming out of the subwoofer in my 2.1 system. When I plug the speakers into my old XP laptop the sub outputs sound just fine, which leads me to believe it's a Windows 8 issue.

    I'm using the Realtek drivers that came installed with Windows 8 (version Has anyone else experienced this with their sub? I'm wondering if updating to the driver from the Realtek site would fix this issue. I'm usually reluctant to install a driver outside of the official Windows Update site because from my past experience it can introduce more issues (as apparent even in this thread).

    I used the MS drivers, but then, installed these new ones from Realtek -- and they work great. One of the files says Installer (I think) and that is the one I used. The other is only the device drivers.
