Did you read the previous thread in this Category?

In my opinion,

Windows 8 is still very new. It is going to have problems until all the bugs are worked out, and all the World's servers are updated.

I will install windows 8, when they start bragging about windows 9, by that time, windows 8 should be working pretty good.

List all the data you have here, or, copy and paste the http link to this thread.

 

Check to see if the Drivers for your Computer's Graphic Card, are up to date.

 

A positive with Windows 8, is Microsoft Support. Windows 8 is moving forward, like it or not. :)

SL viewers work fine in Win8 once you install video drivers from the maker of your graphics/video card, i.e. NVidia or AMD.

That's the most important point. The Microsoft drivers won't be full feature drivers for any hardware that doesn't come OEM on a Windows 8 machine. And you can't count on the name that's on the case of your machine to have the proper drivers either.

Everybody left it up to the video card manufacturers to not only produce, but also distribute the new drivers. Why the laptop manufacturers that use those video cards aren't mroe involved in making sure that something made and available for free, and makes their own machines work better to the consumer is beyond me.
