    Windows 8.1 and my graphics...


    Okay so I recently upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, and have an Asus with an nvidia geforce gt graphics card. The computer is working fine, all except my graphics. Windows 8.1 is beautiful and looks crystal clear and wonderful and then I open Google Chrome and I'm looking at fuzz city. Same with opening Steam or really just about any application that didn't come with the computer. Then I tried to play Skyrim, and it tried to tell me that I needed the lowest resolution when before I played on High. I've upgraded my graphics card drivers. What have I missed?

    FYI, you are not alone as many are complaining about the exact same issues. Do you by chance have a GTX 5xx or higher graphic card? If so, I would go back to NVIDIA and find out what they might know about a possible 8.1 hardware compatibility issue here. And while you're at it, make sure your GTX can handle the GOP protocol, and if not, ask them when you are going to get a firmware update to fix that issue as well. Good luck.
