Well no matter how much I try to trick, tweak, update drivers, use alternative drivers my current system hardware just doesn't like windows 8. So I'm sadly reporting that I've returned to windows 7 until I replace all my hardware, which is not likely to happen any time soon. The really sad part about this is, I truly enjoyed using windows 8 Pro. Once you get around the quirkiness of the metro screen, it's quite nice. I'll still be stopping in this forum now and again...if nothing else just to add my 2 cents worth.
