    the only difference is when I launch anything that prompts UAC to say hi.. my system sounds slider on the volume control panel is jacked all the frakking way up but that sometimes happens when I reboot...

    am I safe in ruling that an oddity of windows 8?

    Looks fine.

    You might check for newer sound drivers and modify that volume slider so that it will remember the settings.

    see..I do modify it, but it seems to revert every so often. the other sliders stay put..*shrugs*

    See laptop's page:
    Sony eSupport - SVE141290X - Support

    If that's really a Realtek audio card, try updating to the latest drivers (currently 2.71: if the original driver from first link doesn't work well).
    Download Realtek High Definition Audio - FileHippo.com

    That's a bit weird.
    If you plan on re-installing the drivers you first might give it a try with the windows built-in audio driver to see if it works better.

    I plan to zero my system out and start virgin when windows 8.1 releases as I plan to upgrade to it, so I'll see if that fixes the audio slider issue and a few minor...nuisances.

    That's what I'm planning to do as well...

    Good luck.
