    Windows Blue: No Windows desktop mode!? No!

    Honestly, the desktop is just about perfected, it would be counter-productive on Microsoft's side if they didn't work on the metro style. I think Metro can turn into something great, If they know where to go with it and where to stop. <cantfindthetildaonmykeyboard> Eve EDIT: Found it...

    Minecraft creator tells Microsoft to 'stop trying to ruin the PC'

    I like Windows 8, and I understand that WINE is a pain in the behind to configure, but I wasn't saying that I'd switch to Linux to run the PC games. I was stating that if the game companies stopped making games for PC, then people wouldn't have a choice but to change to whatever OS the game...

    Minecraft creator tells Microsoft to 'stop trying to ruin the PC'

    A: dude, calm down, it's not that big of a deal. B: What I was saying was, IF by some small chance that a game company chooses to not make their games for Win 8, that I would resourt to usiing whatever OS they chose. I never said that I would not use Win 8 because I don't like the...

    Minecraft creator tells Microsoft to 'stop trying to ruin the PC'

    Lol Notch is a funny dude. I agree that not making Minecraft (or other games for that matter), for Windows will surely be a slam on Microsoft. Gamers will resort to Linux or even OS X. I personally like Windows 8 overall, but when it comes down to gaming, If all of the games are for Linux, I'm...

    I would install the RTM but the only one available to me is the beta and that times out after 90 days. I don't have a dev. account anywhere (trust me if I did, I would have it by now :P) I thank you for your help, and I'll look into finding a way of getting the RTM somehow...

    I found out it is just a driver problem... Realtek hasn't released the drivers for Windows 8 so Win8 is using the Microsoft drivers which aren't always the best. Hibernating wasn't a problem for me because that's basically what hybrid shutdown was. So as long as I didn't restart I don't have to...

    No :/ I'm thinking of doing a clean install (Every time I install Win8 I get a different outcome) I'll let you know how that goes... I won't do that until Thursday or Friday because of work.

    i had Windows 7 64bit (installed x86 windows 8 because I was running slow due to lack of ram.) I had Windows 8 RP on this machine awhile ago and it worked perfectly fine... I'm not sure why this is so different... and here's how it works: I boot my computer No sound I Hibernate my machine...

    Well.... Installed video drivers and no sound again... hibernate computer, wake it up, sound again... Is there a process that controls sound I should restart (other than windows audio service, I tried that)

    No sound

    I tried all of the above except for the soundblaster drivers(because I know I don't have soundblaster) and none of it appeared to work... I was up until midnight and even did a system refresh.... nothing.... I hibernated my machine to go to bed and started working on it again about 10 minutes...

    No sound

    Hi I installed Windows 8 on my laptop and got the audio drivers installed all fine and dandy... Except that's what Windows says. The driver says it is working properly and when I use the sound (Like playing something on Itunes) windows does the animation in the sound mixer like it is working...

    Screen/External monitor fails to display anything

    Okay guys i have a puzzling one for you... I'm running my trusty Emachines E527 with Windows 8 RP. I was playing Minecraft on an external monitor (a TV) and I get a blue screen... no biggie I've dealt with these before. I do a hard reset and turn my computer back on and I don't get an image on...

    I ended up using KeyTweak. Only because I'm uncomfortable editing the registry by myself.

    Internet Explorer fails to work... period

    Actually i found out a system refresh solved my problem fantastically. Unfortunatly it deleted all of my software but left a nifty list with download links so I wasn't too upset. I found that the problem most occurs when you use the Upgrade option to go from Windows 7 to 8 so that might have...

    Windows 8 boot changer?

    I'm not really a fan of the Windows 8 fish... I like the Windows 7 fish much better. I did some searching around on Google and I fail to find someone with a Windows 8 boot updater. Has anyone else find a way to change the boot to whatever I want?
