    Problem running Win 8 on NetBook Asus Eee PC 1001P

    Unfortunately you can't the max resoultion that the 1001P can support even with the correct drivers is going to be 1024x600. The only fix is impractical which would be to install an LCD with a better resolution. The EEE 1005PR sports a 1366 x 768 wxga LCD but it's also 10.1 inch and not 10 inch...

    Are You Still Using Windows 8 Developer Preview?

    Yep still plodding along with it. That and other operating systems. I hate to sound old school but I prefer XP "still" on a system with low memory and low end CPU. Millions of workstations can't be wrong. :) That opinion's not going to change until the final farewell XP update. :D

    Solved are there any network drivers for this desktop?

    Fortunately there are both 32 and 64 bit 7 drivers available for the Plex 380 available on Dells support site. Now whether he can use them in VM ware is another thing. I haven't mussed with VM ware for awhile as it really bogged down the early C2D system I use. So I'm far from an expert, but...

    Solved are there any network drivers for this desktop?

    Dumb question probably, Dut did you download the installer from "dell support" let it extract to C: then browse the drivers folder it creates and transfer it to thumb drive? Because I'm staring at a mini card driver installer right now titled "Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card...

    Microsoft tries to block Linux off Windows 8 PCs

    What part the virtual disabling of non sanctioned software and potentially hardware? (or) Microsoft's denial Regardless it cinches the decision on my next build to be based around the Z68 chip set "just to be safe" As when it ages I usually turn old hardware into a Nix server for media files...

    Solved Window 1 to 8 lol

    I used 1.0 and I can state with 110% certainty that WDP isn't remotely similar. Although I think they could take a cue from 1.0 and add a static clock to Metro. The pop up is nice but I don't want to hover over every time I want to see what time it is. If your doing this from the ironic humor...

    Does Windows 8 offer any advantage compared to Windows 7?

    I have to say that unless they make discernible changes in the Metro UI regarding letting the EU add shortcuts to the interface along with other customization options. It has no real advantage. That being said about the UI I have noticed a slight speed up in initial boot time and the way it...

    HOw Can i go bck to 7

    If you installed over 7 "that's bad news". :sad: I urge anyone attempting this to become familiar with Disk partitioning and Imaging software first. So that you can make the appropriate image backup prior to installing WDP over Windows 7 in upgrade installations. As this would make...

    Solved Windows Developer Preview on old PC

    Nice catch! Doubly Confirmed, I just loaded WDP onto an old Athlon XP1800 system, which I know lacks SSE2. I received an identical crash to what you described when trying to run both Services and Event Viewer.

    Video driver install problems

    There's another option if an installer crashes and or fails to run. Download and install Winrar. Locate and download the installer for your version of the X300 driver 32 or 64 bit from ATI. Instead of double clicking to execute it right click to discover a new extract option :). Extract the...
