    Hello,

    Anyone updated to Windows 8.1 preview? I have installed yesterday and faced a few problems

    1. WiFi lost connection - fix: check driver properties. Some of them are in wrong state, like limit connection to only B or G and so on
    2. No battery icon at all. - temporarily fix - Delete Microsoft AC adapter drive in hardware and re-scan for changes. After restart of your tablet you need to repeat this step.
    3. drivers. Just install last packed of drivers.

    I cannot say a lot about changes in 8.1, but most important for me is ability to make icons small so I don't have big canvas of icons on main screen.

    Ask questions if you have, I will try to answer.

    Hello,

    i have updatet also to the Windows 8.1 Preview and have the same problems with the battery icon. The problem is I cannot see the actual charge state.

    Maybe there will be a fix to this issue.

    I've installed the GMA drivers from a HP Envy X2 and graphics is now fluid.
    Any ideas to get the cameras working?

    I updated mine and the screen is stuck on. I mean I push the power button and the screen goes black, but it has a glow to it and at night it actually lights up the room with a black screen. I left it off the charger just to see if the screen would kick off and it never did, it just ran the battery dead.

    On a side note, I did update my Surface Pro and it works great other than the Cisco VPN client that used to work.

    I've tried all the steps including the drivers from Asus, HP Envy, and uninstalling the AC adapter driver in hardware. When I restart, the battery icon is no longer there. I can't change screen brightness. It's stuck using the basic Microsoft display driver so screen navigation is terrible. And my screen won't turn off unless I power down the tablet. This sucks! But I guess that is what I get for installing a preview release.

    This should not be like this. I just reinstalled drivers package from asus and everything is working.
    Camera works for internal app and now it's very very fast! Asus camera shows black screen, but itu takes pictures if you press on-screen button.

    Working like a breeze on my Acer Iconia Tab w510 which apparently has the same Atom chipset as the VivoTab. I am quite surprised why are you facing problems with VivoTab smart!

    I had exactly the same problem, I couldn't change screen brightness and no battery icon. Didn't know what to do.
    But checked Windows Update this morning and it downloaded and installed an Intel driver update for Intel GMA. Everything is now working perfectly. The changes and improvements in 8.1 are really good.

    Asus VivoTab Smart ME400C

    Update: Asus camera is still not working, Microsoft camera is.

    When I started reading this thread I thought to myself "well, maybe I'll just stick to the vanilla for the time being".

    But it looks like the worst problems is fixed with new drivers from Intel.

    My Vivotab is brand new, but I can't wait to install,the 8.1.

    I tried earlier to install, but got error message.. I'm installing windows updates as we speak - hopefully that's what's missing!

    Btw, is it possible to create a backup ISO? And maybe store on SkyDrive?

    I just clicked windows update and showed me that driver. But as I said, with this driver tablet crashes every time you press power button. After rollback everything is back.

    Can anyone confirm this:
    I see strange multitasking behavior of metro applications. In 8.0 when you swipe from top of screen, you close application. Now if you do the same, application seems closed and if you start it again if will loads from start. But, if you close application then open task manager you still can see this application on first tab and if you double click on app, you will be switched to it and application will be at the point of time when you close it. For example run calc, enter some number and make calculation. Close calc, run task manager and double click on calc. You will see that you numbers are still there. Same for games. All those app are still on memory. I don't know is this normal behavior for 8.1, but for me it looks lie bug. If I close app, it must be closed.
