Compaq Presario CQ70 200ED, upgraded from windows Vista 32 bit to Windows 8 Pro 64 bit
Conexant HD Smart Audio 221 is enabled and the sound meter is moving as if audio was working fine but no there is no audio playback. Also, YouTube video's play in slow-motion. On Spotify the progress bar moves (although slow) but no audio. This only happens after the notebook comes out of sleep-mode.
I have reinstalled the drivers and even tried to run them in windows 7 compatibility mode but still no audio. I couldn't find any newer drivers, and HP gave me zero support. I think that it's related to the Conexant drivers, or the Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family drivers.
please help me! thank you in advance
