    No Sound on my laptop (Except headphone)

    Hi, I've just got my Windows 8 through Dreamspark Premium. I was using windows 7 and did a clean install of windows 8.

    After installing windows 8, there's no sound from my speaker. Sound only works with earphones. What should I do?

    My laptop:
    Asus N53J

    I went to the asus website and update the audio driver, it partially works now. The sound is there, but I keep getting error message about SRS audio cannot be found. I go to the add/remove program and saw two programs have been installed:
    -Realtek High Definition Audio Driver
    -SRS audio contro panel

    I uninstall the SRS audio control panel and it seems the error message is gone. But I hope I didn't corrupt anything.

    I remember I don't have this problem with Windows 8 release preview...why?

Greetings everyone, I just received my new sound card and I'm excited to try it out. I've hooked it up and connected my headphones into the proper jack. I try out the audio and it's bloody awful, worse than on-board audio (which is not too bad). I don't know what's wrong, this (I hope) shouldn't...
