    Windows 8 Evaluation Build 8400

    Screen split into 8 views

    The screen is split into 8 views immediately from when laptop starts. (2 across and 4 down)
    Odd thing though is that an external monitor connected only shows the one view.
    Also the screen will go blank (purple background) every two minutes or so for a few seconds before the screen comes back. The cursor changes to a circle as if something is about to happen just before blank (purple) screen.
    Could this simply be a graphics driver issue?
    Help please!

    Hello notallbad. Welcome to Eight Forums.

    My recommendation is to do a clean install on unallocated space ...
    the final version of 8 Evaluation Build 9200 ...
    and proceed from there.

When I split screen, all application windows are resized to fit in the -now smaller- desktop resolution.

Can't view a website and the Excel web app via the split screen. Windows 8 keeps replacing one with the other. I do know how to have 2 sites up at the same time. I access the Excell web app via Sky drive. Is that the problem?
