Please make sure that the device is not set to disabled.  Is there any exclamation point error dev-mgr-exclaim-pt.gif or unknown device message (just like the image below) in the Device Manager? Was it working properly prior to the upgrade? You can also try a Windows System Restore to an earlier date when the sound worked.

Thanks! The driver is not disabled. I do not see any exclamation point. I'll have to get my Windows 8 disc when I get to it and refresh my computer.

It is still not working! Please I really need help now! I've tried refreshing my computer with my Windows 8 disk but I cant. Is there any other option than restoring my computer.

Re: Sony Vaio S Audio/Sound not Working

I just want to know if the issue started after the upgrade to Windows 8.  Was it working properly prior to the upgrade? There is also a possibility of corrupt registry entry for the audio device.  You may try to check if Windows audio service is started and running.   Please make sure that you follow the Windows 8 Clean Install Instructions for VAIO PCs.  It is also possible, however unlikely, that the audio card has already failed even after trying a full format recovery.

It just stopped working. It wasn't the upgrade. I'll try a clean install. Thanks.
