    Re: Sound problem with Mac after installing Windows 8

    Hello Friend,

    In The Window 8 Mostly All Have Drivers Already Installed With The Process Of Windows 8 Installing.. So Sound Driver Also Installed In Windows 8....
    So Problem Is Occurred In Your Hardware Means May Be 2 Reasons :

    >> Your PC And Sound Boxes Are Not Connected To Each Other Accurately....
    >> Your Sound Boxes Are Not OK, Or Your USB Port Not Workable (Means Which USB Port You Use For Connectivity With PC To Sound Box)

    Solution :

    >> Firstly Check Your PC Sound With The Help Of Earphone....
    >> Than See Your Sound Box Are Connected To Power Supply As Well As With PC

    >> And If Your Sound Not Workable Any Condition Than Again Format Your System And Look This Time Is Accurate Sound Or Not
    >> If Again Error Than Go To Service Center Because That Is Hardware Problem.....

    Hello friend........

    I think you haven't install the audio drivers. or they may be partially installed
    So,please insert driver CD, re-install audio driver and restart your MAC book.
    Now you can getrid of the problem

    if not so
    please update the audio driver under the device manager in controlpanel.
    win 8 System.jpgor
    You can get in to internet download new audio driver software related to your windows-8 (64 or32 bit).
    as your previous drivers are not compatable with the Windows-8 (62/32 bit) version


    Thankyou........

    Dear Friend...

    This is one of the most common problem faced and shared by the many Windows 8 User.
    The thing is that, it is mostly not compatible with Mac or some low system hardware configuration.
    If you wan't to sort this problem, then you must have this hardware requirements:-

    1. Processor 1GHz or faster
    2. RAM 1GB (32bit) or 2GB (64bit)
    3. Hard disk space 16GB (32bit) or 20GB (64bit)
    4. Graphics card Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device or higher



    If you have the above mentioned requirements in Mac, then you can manage to use Windows 8.
    If not then we have another alternate for you because the sound problem might not be repairable until Win 8 specific drivers are released.

    You could try using Win 7 drivers installed in compatibility mode and then you can audible with Windows 8.
    A part from that, there is no other alternative for that.

    Thank you...

    Dear Dude ...


    Follow the below steps carefully

    You need to Troubleshoot to know where problem occurred

    Update your Operating system

    Check the "" SOUND PREFERENCES "" once

    For that go to the " System Preferences "

    Click on the SOUND

    After that go for the OUTPUT button

    Then check the Device list

    Select the Internal Speakers ... then test your Sound

    Slide the Output volume to the Louder volume


    Be sure that mute button is not checked ( Ticked )

    Make changes based on the requirement

    After that you need to go for the RESET option

    Then Restart the device


    Problem will definitely be solved


    VERY GOOD LUCK

    Hello Friend

    First of all install
    Boot camp drivers and services form the disc or USB by running setup.

    Restart your computer and then set your boot camp control panel settings from the system control panel.

    You will now be able to use the
    touch pad features like to finger Horizontal scrolling and also altering brightness and volume

    However you will not be
    operating at real speeds or have great battery life.

    As you know that Windows 8 consist all driver Installation during Installing.

    Therefore it will not be Audio driver problem.

    You have to check your sound box system as well as USB port Error.

    You have to test your sound system with earphone as well as other devices.

    Restart your devices.

    You will not face this problem again.
