    How to install driver for ATI RV530 video

    Solved my problem by going to: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1536711 the driver was not installed. I had to go to device manager and find the ati folder and then it installed the drivers needed. I'm now back to 1920x1080 resolution. Yeah! :) problem solved.

    upgrading to Windows 8.1

    I won't do anymore preview upgrades again. A few nice extras but not much different than 8.0. And now that I re-installed win 8.0 I had to call to get it activated again and I can't get the right legacy drivers for my ATI RV530 video so the resolution is too big. A big headache for nothing! I'm...

    upgrading to Windows 8.1

    I did a clean install and had to call to reactivate and then I can't find the legacy drivers for the ati rv530 video. someone sent me a link to the amd page and its installed but the resolution is still bad. Why can't win 8 handle a 5 year old driver?

    How to install driver for ATI RV530 video

    installed the drivers and rebooted but still in the wrong resolution its set to 1152x864 when it should be 1920x1080. I did have the right drivers before my mistake of trying out win 8.1. Now what do I have to do to get it to work?

    How to install driver for ATI RV530 video

    thanks I'll give it a try. I've gone back to Linux Mint 15 since it handles my hardware better than windows and it's easier to use. I look at win 8 as experimental. Hope they get it right some day. Its fine on a new computer but not so good for a 4 year old PC.

    upgrading to Windows 8.1

    Thanks. I did give it a try because it's not a hard drive I use much. Win 8 is more experimental. My main hard drive on this PC is Linux Mint 15. So if I need to reinstall Win 8.0 do I have to format the hard drive and reinstall my original win 8 disc? Or will there be an option to over write...

    upgrading to Windows 8.1

    I would like to upgrade from Win 8 to the new Windows 8.1 preview and try it out. Once I install Win 8.1 preview will I be able to install the Win 8.1 final over it when it comes out this Fall?

    Internet Explorer 10 is gone from program list

    Thanks, it did open IE10. But when trying to create a shortcut, It says it can't find location. "The file C:\windows\system32\iexplore.exe cannot be found". I pinned it to the taskbar for now. How would I add it to the tile desktop?

    Internet Explorer 10 is gone from program list

    OK, I'll give that a try. I didn't think IE 10 could be gone... just hidden and the Start Menu 8 probably caused it. I uninstalled it. Thanks.

    Internet Explorer 10 is gone from program list

    I rebooted after uninstalling start menu 8 and IE 10 its still gone. I can't even find a way to reinstall it. Win 8 is rather confusing. Maybe that's why I've been using Ubuntu lately. it's easier and better organized. I hope Win 8.1 improves things. Let me know if there is a way to fix this...

    Internet Explorer 10 is gone from program list

    Thanks, maybe that's why it's gone, because of start menu 8. I'll uninstall the give it a try.

    Internet Explorer 10 is gone from program list

    Just plugged in Win 8 again and did what you said about setting IE as default and rebooting. Nothing happens. I guess I'll live without IE 10. Can't you even reinstall it? or I'll go back to Chrome browser. It's surprising that MS would let this happen.

    Internet Explorer 10 is gone from program list

    Thanks, I'll give it a try later. I never really use IE, was just curious how it could disappear.
