    Windows 8.1 Pro

    here are a couple threads involving the issue with ATI and Nvidia:

    app dumping me back to the start screen?

    XBox music app not streaming

    note that for me, the latest video driver was the problem. so all my metro apps were working fine when I first installed Windows 8. then I started doing updates along the way, including the drivers. and the driver borked my apps. so I did a refresh which solved the problem because it went back to a driver that was working properly. then I would install the latest drivers which put me in the same predicament. it took awhile for me to realize it was a graphics driver problem because it's hard to see the connection.

    Windows 8 Poo Edition (& Windows 7 Premium)

    Hi, folks, - well convinced that ANOTHER install was on the cards I`ve bought an SSD and have re-installed windows on it.
    Its 120GB 6GB/s and I`ll be keeping my program files and system files on it and the data on USB drives.
    I got my Metro function back now its just a wait to see if it happens again.-Then, I will carry on from here!

    Thanks for the advice.

    Now - any tips on tuning my SSD?

    Edit:- @Dirtyvu , - that makes absolute sense because after doing the clean start up, I lost my streaming too!
