    Change PC Settings Window Problem


    I recently installed W8 on my laptop and it worked perfectly well. I installed it over my W7 Ultimate installation. Aside from reinstalling Nvidia, I didn't have other problems until I reinstalled the Built-in Chipset Driver for my laptop.. When I did, my Change PC Settings Window changed to this:

    Click image for larger version

    Click image for larger version

    Click image for larger version

    My other W8 Metro windows had the same problem too, like my Music app, etc. My Metro Start screen works ok and everything else works ok..

    When I deactivate the driver, it returns to normal but then when I restart, it automatically reinstalls it.


    I am using Acer 4755G, 8GB ram, with Nvidia 540m (2gb). Core i7.

    Try Rolling Back the Driver.
    Properties --> roll-back driver.
    Hope This Helped.
