    windows 8 apps?


    Windows 8 Developer Preview English, 32-bit (x86)

    Includes a disk image file (.iso) to install the Windows 8 Developer Preview and Metro style apps on a 32-bit PC.
    Note: This download does not include developer tools. You must download the Windows 8 Developer Preview with developer tools 64-bit (x64) to build Metro style apps.

    Metro apps don't work with resolution under 1024x768, is your resolution lower than that?

    Hold your mouse over the Windows flag select Search, type Device Manager and click to search, select Device Manager from the list Settings.

    Go back to search type in snipping tool and click to open it, If you click on New you can copy your Device manager and save it to Desktop

    Click image for larger version
    Then using the Click image for larger version Symbol you can upload the Snip here

    The Intel Graphics Media accelerator 3150 chip is not the best but it should support resolutions high enough to run apps, have a look here for a newer driver to install; http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sear...AE+GMA+3150%29
