Hello I tried to upgrade my laptop to Windows 8 a while back but I kept crashing all the time. Just wondering if anyone has successfully installed Windows 8 with all the correct drivers yet?

Weird, you don't need to install drivers. You need to update them. Since Win 7, and now we're on 8, drivers are automatically installed or yet automatically available for you so you'll save time and do other things.

Go google for drivers for your laptop.

Well, I did actually believe the hype but thanks for reminding me. :D  Though it worked for me for some reason it repaired itself once and then WALAH! Like Magic I was able to use it again. Though I really treat the installation of drivers on my desktop as a precautionary setting just to say its safe to use. Hahaha
