    Some Questions about Win 8


    HI all,first of all i'm new here..so let me introduce myself My name is Lovepreet (u can call me Love,my short name).i'm from india & new windows 8 user.i have windows 8 pro & i love windows 8
    but i'm experiencing some problems with windows 8 on my Notebook Pc Asus K54L
    1.my battery draining quickly after some usage even in power saver mode.before there was no problem
    i think problem started after i installed newly chipset drivers & yes Intel rapid storage technology driver also drain my battery quicky.so i uninstalled that.now i know chipset drivers are necessary.but i have problem with this.
    2.wallpaper changing itself quickly after some time,windows 8 clock is faster than windows 7.
    i set time of 1 day & i selected many wallpapers.this is on laptops on all friends of mine.after plugged in or wake from sleep wallpaper changes.this not happen every time..anyway minor problem.
    3.how to clean install Intel HD Graphics driver ? because windows 8 pre-installed Intel HD Graphics wddm driver & when i install it from windows update,it failed.
    4.my Notebook light blinking strangely,before it was normal while in sleep mode,like it is hibernating.but i selected sleep in all options in power options ?
    Plz answer my questions,Thanks

    If you refresh you will lose Windows updates & have to install them again.
    You will lose some other things too.

    When I refreshed one time, I lost all the programs I had added plus some files & folders.

    I don't have a battery operated computer so I can't help with that.

    Someone else will have to help you with your other questions because I don't have the answers to them.

    Once you do get your problems fixed, I suggest you get:

    Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

    & image all your local drives on a usb drive.
