    Windows 8 audio not working!

    I was just using my earplugs on my Windows PC and I when I disconnected them, my audio stopped working.
    I have a quad-boot of Windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 Release Preview, Windows Developer Preview, and Windows 7. Sound doesn't work on any OS but Windows 7. When I play music on the Music app in Windows 8 the app crashes. Also, when connecting HDMI, sound works but Music app still crashes. Please help!!!!

    [UPDATE] Music app has stopped crashing.
