    You're channelling Sinofsky beautifully

    How's it working after a couple of days?

    I've had NO PROBLEMS (regarding the notorious freezing) since I last wrote! What a relief! Yay!

    Oh, that means that the following is a fix proposal / workaround, for this thread:

    Execute this command in an elevated command prompt (and reboot):
    bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes

    I would just like to say that I haven't had any problems with Windows 8 thus far and if I did, and I couldn't fix it myself, I would seek the advice and know how from Gman.I think that some of the posters in this thread have aimed their frustrations in the wrong direction.a) Microsoft is not responsible for drivers on outdated equipment that was never intended to run their latest OSb) Dell never said when they sold you your laptop that when microsoft release another OS we are going to sort out all your problemsc) Individual device manufacturers (ie Ricoh and Nvidia) have neither the time nor the inclination to rewrite drivers for your outdated laptopSo if YOU'VE got a problem with your installation of a new OS on an old laptop then there is no point in venting anger towards any of the above and if that doesn't suit you then you have the option not to try out the Beta software in the end.I am merely stating my opinion and wish no ill towards any of you, and incidentally I wish that you all sort your problems out because I believe thatat Win 8 is a fantastic upgrade.

    I've reinstalled the Windows 8 Release Preview on my laptop and the 'disabledynamictick' trick seems to work for me, too. Glad it's solved.
