    If you are still having IDT Audio issues with Windows 8/8.1 try the following.
    No sound: Error: 1068-dependency service failed to start - Microsoft Community

    Going into the services and manually turning off those 3 services, then turning them back on...That worked for me after upgrading to Windows 8.1 and losing sound. I now have sound thanks to that. Multimedia Class Scheduler is disabled on some machines by default after upgrading to 8.1, turning it on should resolve the IDT Audio problem.
