everything looks to be working on the windows side - have checked sound services volume level no problems found - sound works fine on the apple sid

was looking for a way to check the drivers on the windows side
Commented:
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.

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