    Welcome to EightForums. Are you using Microsoft drivers for your sound, or the driver from your manufacture site?

    Windows 7 and Windows 8


    I have a laptop with 8.0 and I want to update to 8.1--the problem I have having is I am not sure where to go and get a clean update. It keeps saying on my laptop that I need to download my apps first and I believe I have done this. I can see the icon for Windows 8.1 but it will not let me download it. Any suggestions?
