    Hey I have got windows 8 RTM Pro on my laptop and a lot of the apps are not working for me.
    For example the apps I cannot load (out of the ones I have tried)
    TuneIn Radio

    all that happens with these apps are I see the splash screen but then it goes to blank screen (I noticed its the color of whatever style my metro page is)

    I also have trouble with games. it opens fine loads my friends list but I cannot see there info/avatars its just there name and a grey avatar and when I try and click on games I just get a blank box opening up.

    My resolution (MAX) is 1280 x 800

    the system requirements for Windows 8 are thus:

    Windows 8: system requirements

    Processor 1GHz or faster
    RAM 1GB (32bit) or 2GB (64bit)
    Hard disk space 16GB (32bit) or 20GB (64bit)
    Graphics card Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device or higher

    Windows 8: additional requirements

    To use touch A tablet or a monitor that supports multi-touch
    To access the Windows Store and to download and run apps An active internet connection and a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768 pixels
    To snap apps A display with a resolution of at least 1366 x 768 pixels

    Another thing to try is the compatibility pages for Windows 8: Windows Compatibility Center: Find Updates, Drivers, & Downloads for Windows 8, Windows RT and Windows 7

    If your sure your system is compatible can you post how you installed the os, on what media and if on disk, how fast was it burnt?
