Anyway, I installed my windows 8 OEM, updated the drivers, and everything ran fine. I incorrectly tried to turn on RAID and windows needed to repair itself afterwards. It reverted back to the system restore point when I had just gotten it. Everything worked fine except the audio from the 3.5mm jack had stopped working. I tried reinstalling drivers, using 3 different sets of headphones and 2 sets of speakers. Nothing worked, so I had the notion that the system restore messed up the audio somehow. I decided to use the new Windows 8 feature to completely restore my PC as if it were a complete windows reinstall, and the same problem. The audio in that back jack won't work for anything. I tried googling around with no results. HDMI audio works just fine.
