Solved On bootup, no sound, stuttering flash video

Hello!

I have a very odd problem. When i boot up my PC from being powered down, I get no sound at all through my realtek HD sound card. Not from any sources, mp3s, line in, web videos, etc.

Also when this is happening, when i play a flash youtube video, it stutters.

Nothing gets the sound back, not even disabling the sound card, etc.

So I then do a reboot of the PC and after the reboot everything works until i shut down the computer. The next day i turn it on and no sound. Reboot fixes it.

Anyone have this issue before?

*Edit, also wanted to add that i have updated to the latest Realtek driver off their website in hopes of fixing this issue with no luck. R2.70 dated 6/22/12

Windows 8 has a different power down sequence than other Windows Operating Systems. When you power off, its not really powered off completely. Its in a sort of hibernation state. Because it doesn't do a "normal" boot with the BIOS this could be your problem.

There is an option to correct this. Give this a try and see if it fixes or helps the problem.
With Windows 8, “off” isn’t really off

You know I've noticed that when my computer goes to sleep I lose sound as well. I disabled my computer from going to sleep to solve that issue. Also when I turn off my pc one of my USB devices stays powered on too.

That did the trick, boot up time doesn't seem any slower. Thanks!
