Hey guys,
I have the consumer preview Windows 8, No problems with sound initially until i plugged in my headphones. No sound at all, at first i thought the headphones where broken so i tried 3 other pairs of earphones and still nothing. Anyone have any ideas as to whats going wrong?

Welcome to the forum. When you right click on the speaker icon in the system tray at bottom right of your screen and select Playback Devices, what are you setting as default?

I don't know what brand or model you use, not in your system specs, but you should have options like HDMI, speakers and headphones, or dual headphones, SPDIF... when you right click on one of these, gives you the option to set as default.

Hi...in my WinXP, i was able to use both headphones and speakers together, but here in Win8 I find the option to only use one of them at at time. Is there a setting which can play automatically with headphone/speaker whichever is plugged in or do I need to change the default everytime I plug in a device? Thanks
