    No sound in Windows 8 Consumer Preview, Error Code 1297

    Two days ago i downloaded and installed Windows 8 CP 64bit. Every thing is working fine, apps are running properly, graphics are great. But there is one problem and am unable to solve it.




    Since i installed Windows 8 , there is no sound in my system . I tried many things including drivers but still there is no success. Please help.

    I would like to suggest you to go through the below steps and let me know:

    • OnStart page, type services.msc.
    • Go to Windows Audio.
    • Now under the Log on Tab, make sure Local Service is selected in current account
    • Once you done this go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy.
    • Now here extract the Expand Local Policies and after that click on the User Rights Assignment.
    • Now here on the right pane, scroll to create global objects and verify if LOCAL SERVICE listed below. if this was not listed then double click and select Add User or Group and type in LOCAL SERVICE and click OK.

    Now once you did just reboot the system for the best result.

    Thats correct. It helped many people restoring their system sound. If in case it wont fix, just go through the following steps:

    • Type cmd on the start page, right-click on the program and select Run as administrator.
    • Now type and run below command on command prompt
    • Code:
      secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose
    • Restart the machine for best result.

    If still face the same issue then i think you have issue with the driver and so therefore i would like to suggest you to make install the latest and new sound driver on your system and then you can solve your issue. If the drivers don't install, then i would like to suggest you to try installing them in compatibility mode, because i have seen lots of people facing issue with installing driver.

    First of all uninstall the driver if it's installed. After that while you install or reinstall driver, right-click (or press and hold) the driver, and select Troubleshoot Compatibility. Now here select the Try Recommended Settings and in next window choose start the Program.
