    I have the 4550 card maybe thats the issue?

    -Disabled auto driver install in Local Group Policy Editor
    - Run driver sweeper in safe mode, atiman and ccleaner
    -Got vga mode, but drivers still fails.

    Maybe try again without insytalling original hp driver first? But guessing the switch version does not work then.

    Also had problem installing the hp drivers in vga mode, would just hang.
    Installed as vhd but im guessing that doesnt matter.

    I installed this software, and it works fine for enrolling fingerprints and such, but it's not doing anything on the Windows logon screen when using a Microsoft/Windows Live account. Coincidentally, using a regular local Windows 8 account works fine. Any ideas to fix this?
    Or does anyone know of drivers that work with the Windows built-in biometric settings?

    Edit: Installed the newer 4.0.1 Digital Persona software, then upgraded to 4.11 with similar results.

    Anyone having performance issues with the intel graphics and power saver mode? It's been laggy on the desktop and with the metro apps. With some apps, such as Cut the Rope, they crash when loading. Wondering if anyone has any advice or suggestions.

    I loaded all the drivers according to the sticky. Thanks!

    Cut the rope crashes for me too on intel, and some apps are quite slow with it (music and solitaire especially) that are fine on ati, even without power saving.

    On the subject of snapping, do you think it would be possible to change the resolution outputted to the screen via the registry? Or would it damage the screen seeing as higher resolutions aren't supported?

    To help transition to Windows 8, wouldn't it be nice if we had some "how to", a tutorial, something, anything, from Microsoft?! Well, my friends, I found something that should help.

    Introducing Windows 8 Consumer Preview

    They have a really informative overview video that's near the end:
    http://video.ch9.ms/ch9/f57b/18c49b35-b661-49b1-935c-a0050174f57b/WindowsBlogWin8CPDemo_med_ch9.mp4

    And here's a link on making a clean install. It's my preferred method, since it's "fresh" without the usual decay from a worn install. Yet, I'm interested in the migrate option (just keep personal files) 2nd, after 1st trying the upgrade option (keep personal files, apps, and settings). Either way, we better backup.
    How to Make a Clean Installation of Windows 8 | 7 Tutorials

    I know we are mostly touch screen users here, but keyboard shortcuts are a great way to get around too. Especially useful, when I'm at work with my 2nd monitor and external mouse and keyboard.
    A Collection Of Windows 8 Keyboard Shortcuts

    And the old Windows 7 shortcuts work still, so:
    Master List of Windows 7 Keyboard Shortcut

    If you have anything that could also help one familiarize themselves with Windows 8, please share. I'd like to find a HP TM2 video, but haven't found one yet. Perhaps after the Lenten rush to Easter, we pastors get a breather. Then maybe I'll make one.

    Good info! I played around a bit, and found the following:

    Win + Q brings up a full-screen applications tile, and you can start typing immediately into the search box for the program you want if you don't see it listed.

    Win + W brings up a full-screen settings tile, and you can start typing immediately into the search box for the settings you want if you don't see it listed.

    Win + E opens My Computer in normal Windows Explorer.

    Win + R opens the Run command.

    Win + I opens the Charms Settings menu.

    Win + P opens the Charms Multi-monitor Settings menu.

    Win + D switches between your current app and the regular desktop.

    Win + F opens the Charms Files search menu.

    Win + H opens the Charms Sharing menu.

    Win + K opens the Charms Devices menu.

    Win + L locks the screen.

    Win + C opens the Charms menu.

    Win + M minimizes the current window.

    Win + 2 minimizes and restores the current window.

    Win + 3 switches between open Explorer windows.

    Win + 1 opens 7Stacks Start Menu if you have it installed. 7stacks | Alastria Software

    I thought Win + [Number] opens the programs pinned to the taskbar, so Win + 1 for me opens IE10 Win + 2 opens explorer etc.
