    HDMI audio stopped working after upgrading to Windows 8.1

    Took me a bit to do this one, but basically it needed an uninstall of the Audio drivers and a re-install.

    I use Realtek High Definition Audio as my driver for Audio.

    To find what you have press the windows key, then type Device Manager to start the device manager, Scroll down find Sound, Video and Games Controllers. Expand that tab and find what your drivers are, as I said I have Realtek High Definition Audio - find the new drivers and make sure there is one before you uninstall.

    Download the new drivers.
    Realtek ones can be found here: Realtek - if that doesn't work start here Realtek - choose the one for you, mine was: 64bits Vista, Windows7, Windows8, Windows8.1 Driver only (Executable file) once you've got the new drivers ready for install.

    uninstall the old drivers
    do this by right clicking on
    Realtek High Definition Audio and it'll take you through the process, you will probably have to re-start the computer. once you've done this install the update drivers and once again at least one re-start will be required.

    This worked for me, it did however give me two options for audio, one for the laptop and one for my Dell monitor, it had the monitor listed as mute, make sure you check this isn't happening before you think of going through the process again.

    I had the same problem when I upgraded and had to go to the Realtek site too, the only one my manufacturers site was for Windows 8.

    I still can't get my shortcut buttons working, it's pain in the bum as they were really handy
