    Hello

    Lets talk about Win8.1 RTM here.

    I have upgraded yesterday, but first attempt was unsuccessful. Stuck on 81% and I was forced to restart tablet. After that any attempt to install 8.1 failed, so I decided to restore tablet by reseting it. After reset 8.1 installed without any problem.
    Downloaded and updated new drives v4.0.

    Now the problems:

    1. Heating. After 10 minutes back side near NFC became to hot and as a result, unresponsive touch screen :( Especially in bottom right cornet. If tap there, you can see that your click stuck. For testing you use Multi Touch test application (its free).

    2. Pressing power button or Windows key, turns on tables but with 3-5 seconds delay :(

    3. Display drivers crashes when you unlock tablet.

    4. As a result of 3. background on Start menu resets to simple color event though I set to use same wallpaper as desktop.

    _______________

    I understand that this is ASUS issues, not Win8.1 because I have Win8.1 Pro installed on my home computer and everything works excellent.

    It seems that new display driver is a main cause of all problems with Win8.1 on our VivoTab :(
    And I think this is the last time I bought something from ASUS. This company is going to worse and worse

    I've updated to 8.1 and the only issue right now is the video driver. The driver version is 9.14.3.1168, but i'm unsuccessful in downgrading to 9.14.3.1117 which is listed in the ME400CL_2.00 driver update notes. Windows just auto updates to the latest driver version even if you use the driver package. If anyone hasn't updated to 8.1, please tell me the Intel GMA driver version. Hopefully, Asus gives us some updated driver or I'm going to have to revert back to factory.

    Youtube videos don't run smoothly anymore.

    First disable automatic installs of updates
    Second install derives

    Now I can say that old drivers work well. But the problem with heating still remains and as a result, unresponsive touch screen. Especially in right bottom corner of screen.

    Seconded! Not so much the graphics issue but the lag when pushing the power button is getting annoying.

    From Asus Support:

    "Unfortunately we don't have schedule for new updates, so you need to be patient and wait automatic updates from Windows."

    I had the same problem with the Intel drivers that are installed as the latest. If you roll back the driver to the previous version (prior to 9.14.3.1168) the graphics should start working again. I can't comment on the NFC stuff since I don't really use it so have it disabled to save power.

    Then I think in terms of the delay with the power button, that may very well be linked to the issue with the display drivers. Since rolling back to the previous version of the graphics drivers I haven't had this issue either. So something worth investigating!

    Hope that helps! :)

    Apart from those two little glitches, 8.1 seems like a pretty good upgrade on here.

    Ready to throw this garbage in the wall. Have tried all kinds of old drivers. And it feels like its getting slower every day. And WiFi range sucks. Freck! I'm getting artefacts like every time I wake it up from sleep.

    Only thing that works is Microsoft drivers from 2006 But then web browsing becomes too unresponsive.

    Finally got it to work. Probably didnt disable the automatic driver updates correctly the first time. Now using 9.14.3.117 (2012-12-15)

    Smiling again :P
