    Audio Error after the installation of new Windows 8?

    I am having a Sony Vaio Laptop. I tried to install Windows 8 on my Laptop. After installation I am witnessing a very weird problem.A sound icon with an "X"appears at the time of starting telling me that the Audio Service is not running. Restarting the PC, installing drivers, starting the audio service and reinstalling Windows 8 did not work. Can you suggest me a solution?

    There is BIOS software to upgrade the hardware or to make the default configurations.
    You need to download the BIOS software from the website depending upon your model.
    Go to the following website select your product
    then go to the drivers section and download the BIOS driver and install it and restart your machine.

    my friend the windows 8 has an advanced audio settings i mean directX is advanced ......so the error message will be displayed ....

    TO fix this you need to update your BIOS for the windows 8

    SO update your bios setting and re-install the audio drivers then the problem will be resolved

    When your drivers are uptodate, files are okay and windows 8 is reinstalled. your problem needs observation from another angle.

    Your computer , how old is it? if a little old then you need to install a new BIOS (basic input output system) upgrade and it will be ready to read, analyse and load the newest driver files which it currently can`t .

    Check for the sound card integrity from a good diagnosis software (lots of them are in web and absolutely free) do decide wheather the card is okay or not.

    Thank you.
