    Did you try a reboot? If the Reboot didn't help, try a "refresh". Go to the Device Manager, Uninstall the Realtek audio but DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. Fixes lots of problems and may take care of yours.

    Windows 8.1 Update 1 (x64)


    Meh... I would do his stuff first, and if that didn't work check that Windows is actually using it by right-clicking the speakers and clicking properties and enabling the thing.
