    Windows 8.1 Update Messes with the screen?Why?


    It has come to my Attention that windows 8.1 is a fish. A rotted , disgusting fish that messes things up. First it managed to crash my Laptop when i tried to revert.Now , I didn't update to windows 8.1 and now its sending my Laptop into what i call Operating System Limbo. What it's doing.

    - Failing my Hardrives

    Thats about it so far.. not too much ... yet . But i think it'll be progressively worse.My keyboard driver is
    messed up.My keys go in and out all the time.There's just no winning here.

    go to your mfg's website and download the win 8.1 drivers - not all 8 drivers work with 8.1, you will also to continue to get the 8.1 update nag screen until you update

    or your hard drive is actually failing.. And needs to be replaced..
