I upgraded Windows 8.0 to 8.1 and now my speakers won't work. The computer sound is normal (lousy) but the speakers nada.

The most common issue with sound that worked previously, after an upgrade is either the drivers, or the settings for the drivers. Usually we end up uninstalling any software in "Programs and Features", "uninstall or change a program" that relates to the sound card. If there is none, next go to device manager and uninstall the driver from there, restart and let windows put it back. I'm curious by 'the computer sound is normal' what are you hearing that through if not the speakers? In this case it sounds like the 'settings' under volume control, or control panel,sound, are set to digital, and your speakers are analog. If you have more than one item in here, one is likely digital, ensure it's not enabled. Finally if there is a problem with the driver, it will show you an error, instead of a sound icon. Reinstall the driver. If you have an OEM PC, like dell, gateway,etc, the drivers you require should be on their homepages, it's helpful to know your pc's model #.

My sounddriver not working

Try to uninstall and reinstall the driver back maybe the file just got corrupted, how?

Here' what you need to do:
- Go to device manager
- if your sound card driver is not working then you will see an icon with a yellow exclamation mark this is your sound driver.
- remove it then reinstalled it back by just refreshing the device manager
- this will automatically install the driver back and this should resolved the problem

If not,then you can try to restore your computer back to previous date where your sound driver works, just think of that date and use System Restore

Hope this help:)

Missing icon from taskbar
1. If you have uninstall your Audio drivers from your system the volume icon will not show in the taskbar. You have to reinstall the audio drivers to restore the volume icon back to the taskbar

2. If the your volume icon is missing from the taskbar and you did not uninstall the audio drivers, then go to Start -> Control Panel -> Sounds,Speech, and Audio Devices -> Sounds and Audio Devices ->"Place volume icon in the taskbar" box -> Uncheck & check -> Apply & OK and your volume is restore at the taskbar. (Reboot if necessary)

Hope it helps.

No System Tray Blue Tooth Icon

The GBU321 installation software that comes with the CD was the problem. Called their tech service who made me uninstall the BlueTooth Drivers that the CD and Windows 2000 installed first, and then "directly" download and install the BROADCOM drivers. The adapter works very well now. Thanks.
