    Windows 8 Apps not working on my HP Touchsmart TX2


    Hi,

    I just installed windows 8 32bit edition on my HP TX2 everything work just fine except the APPS.
    Form some reason when I'm clicking on the Apps (Weather for example) I'm getting the nice blue screen of the weather app for about 2 secs and then it's just switch to a the green background and nothing happens.
    I get the same results in all the apps except IE,Control Panel , Desktop.
    Does anyone encounter with this problem??
    My Graphic driver is ATI HD3200
    Processor AMD Turion X2 RM-74

    Please help

    Regards,
    Amitay

    Welcome to EightForums
    Some success has been gained by changing screen resolution. I went up on mine but i don't have touch screen so this may not be your case. Good luck to you.

    As usual, run sfc scan, failing that refresh or reset your PC. Make sure your data is backed up. Remember this is a very early release and is quite buggy.

    Did you read my earlier post- if sfc doesn't work, run refresh and failing that reset. And for God's sake, this is a buggy pre-beta don't get sentimental about it.

    Bill2 Believe I'm far from being sentimental about this issue but you know it will be nice to see it works like the vids on youtube that shows windows 8 working good on TX2 with all the features.
    Anyway can you please explain me how to do refresh and reset???

    Go to Action Center and click Recovery, you can see refresh and reset in the window.

    There are tutorials for it already.

    Refresh Windows 8
    Reset Windows 8

    Make sure you applied all the updates from Windows update as well, as some of the updates may be helpful.
