Windows 8.1, Toshiba Satellite L745

It was originally windows 7, then I upgrade to 8, then the 8.1 preview evaluation copy. I think I started having sound issues when I went to 8.1. I will play for a couple minutes then cut out. If I pause for a few seconds then play the sound works for a few more minutes. The sound works fine when I'm using HDMI to the television or on headset. Could there be a hardware/motherboard issue since it's the speakers that are cutting out? Could it be an 8.1 issue? Thanks for your help:cry:

Could be 8.1. 8.1 has caused some audio systems to stop working or be intermittent. Check Toshiba for any updated 8.1 drivers and if there is none, reinstall the Win 7/8 available driver from Toshiba.

HDMI is different and either the HDMI has its own "sound card" or it uses S/PDIF digital connection and not the actual PC's sound card.

Thanks Fireberd,
I just updated to the actual 8.1 from preview and it still does it. I think I tried updated drivers, but I'll check. Maybe they didn't have them for windows 8 or 8.1 when I checked.
