Fixed my webcam. Wouldn't work on Windows 7 after working for a year.. tried everything to fix it. Decided to reformat and install Windows 8.. same problem. Sent my laptop for repair.. worked the first time I booted, then didn't work at all again. Installed 8.1 yesterday and so far no problems at all. So... I'm LOVING it. :) Also, love how fast it is, and the features.. I used to be pro Windows 7 but this is better.

Haven't tried it yet. I checked the Windows Update to see if it was there, but it wasn't.

I can't be bothered to go look for it online if that's what I'd have to do. Windows 8 works fine for me as it is.

You have to use Metro to update it.

Also, has anyone had any driver incompatibilities with 8.1?

Welp, almost nothing works for me in the Metro UI because I disabled UAC.

What part of Metro? The store app?

The changes seems so small.
I mean, it's a free update so why not?

I would LOVE it if it would work on my laptop. I'm backing up my computer on a 32 GB SD Card (yes, all I need will fit, only need music and save files really, as well as documents), so I'm gonna try it again.
