    IDT Audio Pavillion DV6 Not Working

    Hi All

    Just downloaded Windows 8 Professional from Dreamspark Premium. Installation has gone really well and I'm getting used to it already, but there's a slight problem - no sound

    Has anyone got any instructions for sorting this out? the laptop I'm using is a HP Pavillion DV6-6b50sa which normally uses IDT Audio.

    Installing audio drivers aren't my forte so if anyone could help then it'd be much appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    EDIT: Just tried unplugging the headphones - sound works fine without the headphones, but when I plug them in it goes dead again, then the whole thing just stopped - any ideas?

    If anyone else has the same problem with IDT Audio - go to the 'SWSetup' folder (accessible from the C: drive), then 'Audio' then run IDT. It will ask you to restart - restart then when you log back on, sound will work through headphones too

    Yes indeed.

    But that folder isn't always there, on clean installs for example.
    So you need to get the driver from the MS Update Catalog if you need the latest Win8 driver.

    This fixed it for me here:
