Have you tried visiting the manufacturer's site for most recently updated drivers?  Does it appear to work correctly in Device Manager?

Again, have you checked the version of Bootcamp? Bootcamp supplies drivers for Windows - if Windows 8 sound is not supported by Bootcamp, you're going to have a difficult time getting it to work.

Hmm, my apologies. I just noticed that you commented back and said that it was up-to-date.
