Hanging in Windows 8 Dev

Hi every buddy , I have a ASUS K50ID Laptop with following information :

CPU: Core 2 Duo 2.20 GHZ , Ram: 4GB DDR3 , Graphic: Nvidia Geforce 1GB , MB: ASUS Tek , OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (ASUS Original)

I installed Windows 8 Developer Preview 64bit , but it hangs between every 1 hour . I tried 32 bit version too , but it had same problem , now I don't know this hanging is for my system information or it is a bug .

I searched Google too but I couldn't find any solution for it . I'll be glad if you give me some help .

Thanks .

    and the main hang: for example I surfing the net and when I wanted to click on some thing ( links ) my hard stop working.
    please give me some solution , pleaseeee :((
  2. What do you have installed on there and did you put any new drivers on it?
  3. I've installed Yahoo Messenger , Opera , Firefox , K-Lite Codec Pack , WinRar ,VMWare , Photo Shop , and all of my Laptop drivers .

    Install Win8 without your laptop drivers.
    Let Windows find any Win8 driver updates on its own.
  5. Hang on: Did you install Windows 8 in a dual-boot with Windows 7, or are you running ONLY Windows 8?

    The Dev Preview is not supposed to be used a primary OS yet, it's not complete or stable enough.

    I installed Windows 8 Dev dual boot with Windows 7 once , AND then installed Windows 8 Dev without dual boot .

    if I installed it without any drivers my graphic drivers and sound will not config .
  8. So you are currently running Windows 8 as your only OS? Probably not a good idea, that.
    Since the OS has not been released, hardware vendors still have to update their drivers. And as I mentioned before, this is software that is not even complete enough to be considered beta yet.
    Besides, once the final version is released, you will have to reinstall everything yet again. I highly recommend you stick to Windows 7 as your primary OS for now.
  9. Best answer
    Use Device Manager to update drivers.

    Not a good idea. Developers Preview is not even a Beta version of the software. It's available so developers can get an idea how to program their own software to work with Win8.

    No you didn't understand me , now I have Windows 7 on "C" and Windows Dev on "D" .

    so what about my Function keys ? if I don't install ATK Package ( For ASUS Function keys ) I can't do some thing like turning on or turning off my Wireless connection .
  13. Do you get a choice of Win7 or Win8 when you first boot up?
    If so you're on dual boot and thats the best way to do testing with Win8.
  14. My function keys work fine. Just 'normal keyboard functions'.
    If you're installing specialized Win7 drivers = 'ATK Package' you can expect some issues.
    This is a 'preview OS', not even Beta yet.

    no , ATK Package is specially for ASUS notebooks , and if I don't install this software then my functions won't work.
  16. Your choice.
    But you were asking why you were getting hang up and blue screens.
    At least you know why you are getting them.

    You should uninstall every program and install them one by one. You should wait some time after installing one to install the next to see if one of them is the problem
