I checked the Logitech site and apparently these speakers do not need any software when used with Windows 8:

Support + Downloads: Surround Sound Speakers Z506 - Logitech

What was the actual driver you installed? If it was a sound driver are you sure it was correct? Please post your system specification if you need any help in this direction.

I'm not sure if it tells you on that webpage or not but apparently your not going to get it with some web pages due to how they are built
