    Win 8 BROKEN! NEED HELP


    My laptop was running slow so I tried the new 'refresh' option, wrong decision. Windows 8 loaded it and finished it, when it restarted the blue windows logo showed and said please wait for about 5 seconds and then the screen goes black but I can move the mouse around. I desperately need help with this because I'm going on holiday in 2 days and I need to sort out the booking and that.

    I had the same issue. Could not resolve. My thinking is the RTM preview cannot be refreshed.

    Click image for larger versionI don't think its a preview, I got it of the MSDN. Site. Also when I leave it a while it says windows encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer.

Although it appears to work (screen dims briefly), there's no sign of any screenshot in Libraries, or indeed anywhere else. Is it broken, or is it just me? Doing it the 'old' way via MS Paint still works. Wenda.
Windows FAX broken in 8.1 in Software and Apps
Still broken. FAX send will hang/redial. Didn't work in 8.1PV - may have functioned in 8. The problem is FXST30.dll. Replacing it with the Windows 7 copy resolves it. This may require taking ownership. Someone here with Microsoft's ear might pass that along to the higher echelon.
