    Windows 8 Hanging when I connect the charger


    I downloaded Windows 8 the next day after it's release.
    It worked well for a week, but then soon after, every time I would connect my adapter to charge my laptop, it would hang. It works just fine without the adapter. I tried connecting another adapter and it would still hang.

    For now I have downgraded back to windows 7.

    What could be the reason? I wanna upgrade as soon as I can !!

    Some one told me to update the graphics card driver.

    My config is 4gb RAM, 1 GB nVidia graphic card Intel i5 processor...

    PS. I paid for Windows 8. Now that I have downgrade, do i need to pay again !?

    Please help me here.

    Thank you Guys !!

    After installing Windows 8, go to Advanced Power settings and check Processor minimum power state, if it's 0%, increase it to 50% and see whether it hangs when you connect the charger.
    EDIT: No, you don't have to pay again, you can use the same key for re-installation. If you haven't burnt the disc, go to your email, click the link in your receipt and download, burn another DVD and do a clean install.

    Let's hope that works !!

    I have a 'recovery image'. Will that help ??

    Also, when do you think is the ideal time for me to upgrade considering the problems that I already had ?

    Thanks for your assistance, mate !!
