Hello, Has anyone found new Win 8 Driver for this audio chip "VIA High Definition Audio" .
I had a ASUS P7P55D-E PRO motherboard and running Win8 PRO x64 Media Center

It is working OK with the default windows drive but is missing some of the normal setting the VIA drive has in Windows 7.

its working ok with the default but if you want to run VIAHDA present driver then run it on compatibility mode

Its running OK with the MS driver, but i miss a few things, like i have no sound if the headphones are plugged in, i was able to set it to ignore the head phone jack switch with the real VIA driver.
Also had more control of the 5.1 sound, right now the back two speaker are very low compared to the others and i find not much control over that. Maybe it is WPM.

Not much info on this old motherboard and Windows 8 drivers.

Here is the VIA download site for this audio chip set, VT1828S http://www.via.com.tw/en/support/drivers.jsp
This is the Windows 8 Driver below, but it don't list my chip numbers but it does have some that are close. Maybe i will try this driver in a VM but the VM dont see the real hardware so it don't look like a VIA chip in the VM.


Well i cant seem to post a screenshot here, there are no option to do anything but text. Humm.

Well when i go to the device manager and select the device and then select update driver, it tells me there is no new driver. But that is only looking at the Windows qualified driver and not at third party driver that may not yet be qualified. This would not install software that supports other feature but only the driver.
Windows update did not look for hardware and i have ran and install all updates.

After looking at the files of the new Windows 8 driver from VIA, it looks like it will work with my CHip even though it is not called out in the list at there web site. I have found the device ID's in the setup files.
I just need to get a good backup of my drive before i try it, and i am still looking for the right backup software at this time.

Best solution
