Welcome to the Forum,
Make sure you have the latest drivers from your Graphics card manufacturer's website installed.

Thanks 4 the reply.

On the first boot of win8. Windows allowed higher screen resolutions but the Start Apps failed to load and returned focus back to the Start menu. With windows stuck with in smaller screen resolutions the Apps work.

Follow my advice in my previous post,make sure you use the latest drivers from your manufacturers site and not let Microsoft install a Generic Driver.
What graphics card do you have?

Mark Phelps gave a reply 3 Weeks Ago on Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL chipset Driver.

"Also, I recently did some testing in Win8 CP -- and the same driver limitations apply, that is, NONE of the Intel 915 video drivers will install, no matter what you do. You get a simplified version of Aero using the Basic driver that is installed automatically."

I'm assuming you are using the Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL chipset. The driver for that chipset currently does not work due to the driver being xddm. We are working on a workaround, and so far non have worked.

It would have been a better choice if the default had have an option for 16x9 wide screen. 1280x 768.
I'm getting black bars on the top and bottom when playing a video as if I didn't have a wide screen monitor
was if I was using a VCR.


I can switch back to an older version.
The computer is only for recreational use and I did want a redo back to a cleaner version.

errr. The microsoft basic display driver cannot handle outputs because it has no control of the hardware. That is what the drivers from the manufacturer are for.
