Hey steve!

Too bad that you had to switch back to Windows 8....

But i Got my problem fixed!!!!

All you had to do is to first uninstall & then re install the Conexant Audio drivers which you can get from your drivers folder in your laptop.

Then after that, go to control panel-->Sound-->in that set your speakers as your default device & same for the headset too when plugged in.

Then you will see everything will be working just fine!!!!!!!!!

All the best!!!!!!
