RTM Pro - (Most) Apps are not loading Only the splash screen! Help me!


New Member
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 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?
