    No :/

    I'm thinking of doing a clean install (Every time I install Win8 I get a different outcome)
    I'll let you know how that goes... I won't do that until Thursday or Friday because of work.

    I have the same problem and a reinstall did not fix it for me

    I found out it is just a driver problem... Realtek hasn't released the drivers for Windows 8 so Win8 is using the Microsoft drivers which aren't always the best. Hibernating wasn't a problem for me because that's basically what hybrid shutdown was. So as long as I didn't restart I don't have to hibernate and log back in.

    Hi Eve.
    Win 8 RP does have a problem here and there. I means different driver problem on different machine. My ASUS has problem with LAN driver, but it was fixed when installing Windows 8 RTM.
    You may want to instal the RTM Version as it handles Win 7 drivers driver more friendly.

    I presume that you already have the latest driver from Acer website. I found there are some workarounds to try, it might work but not always though. One of it is installing the driver in compatibility mode.

    You also may want to check the physical sound port. The sound port has contact sensor if any audio jack is plugged or unplug. The driver software keep monitoring it to automatically decide the internal or external speaker to use with, as long as the system is on. it might get dusty. Try plug and unplug any audio jack several times to see if it responds.

    Only my two cents. But hope it helps.

    Kevin.

    I would install the RTM but the only one available to me is the beta and that times out after 90 days. I don't have a dev. account anywhere (trust me if I did, I would have it by now :P)


    I thank you for your help, and I'll look into finding a way of getting the RTM somehow...

    90 days worth a challenge.

    Have you tried this driver? Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version for Windows 8

    Try the Realtek Vista_Win7_R263. It is several versions ago. I run it in Vista compatibility mode. It is still, for me, the only 100% reliable driver set from realtek. I used it through the Windows 8 public releases, and now in the RTM. I recently tried the Realtek drivers, written for Win 8. They failed to re initiate after sleep.so I went back to the above
