I recently installed the Windows 8 update, but since my audio has not worked. It won't recognize headsets or even work through speakers. When I try to re-enable them through the "Services" it doesn't work and comes up with Error 1297 - I really need help please, I want to have sounds. It's really annoying!

I really need some help with this, I'm a bit worried now too. I accidentally deleted all of my files - my games, my work etc., so I'm in a serious situation here. I've even reinstalled Windows 8 now, completely from scratch but it still doesn't work! I still can't even fix it in the services file in Run. I still get Error 1297, I need help.
If this fails, how do I revert to XP?

- Run "regedit.exe" from command prompt.
- Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Audiosrv\
- Removed "SeIncreaseWorkingSetPrivilege" from RequiredPrivileges
- Start the Windows Audio Service again.
Note: Make sure Log on => This account is set to "Local Service".

Got the same problem- i have stopped and restarted services but still no sound also tried the above too but still nothing?
I have checked the sound card,checked the volume etc It seem to have stopped out of the blue? Also downloaded fixit but cant find any problems.
Im using vista, thanks in advance for any help.

You need to install the updater Windows 8 release preview. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/release-preview?ocid=O_MSC_W8R_OandO_Consumer_EN-US This worked for me.
