Windows 8, refresh, reset or restore windows 7

Howdy all, I am stuck! I upgraded to Microsoft's windows 8 on January 30, 2013. Since then my sound hasn't worked right on my HP G70 laptop. The sound works for a while after restart then dies. (Also chrome didn't work right, but that is a minor issue) The device manager says my onboard sound, (Conexant high definition smartaudio 221) is working properly. I tried to ask Microsoft support but all I got was go to HP support. I downloaded the Audio Playback Diagnostic tool from Microsoft and it couldn't identify the problem. I asked on another forum for help and was directed to the Windows 8 charm settings to either refresh or reset the PC. I, like a fool, refreshed and windows 8 removed most (not all) of my programs. (I had a lot of junk anyway) Nothing has restored or addressed the lack of sound problem. Can anyone on this forum direct me to a solution? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
