the sound problem is probably about drivers. Try the sound card manufacturer's web site and see if they've got win 8 drivers.

If you upgraded directly from XP to win 8 the bugginess probably comes from your system being too old for win 8 to handle. My experience has been that anytime a new windows comes out backward compatibility only goes back 1 maybe 2 versions, anything more and you're better off with either an intermediate version or keeping your original version.

A large usb stick to backup any data you want and you can wipe your drive and go back to XP.
