Just when an operating system finally arrives to truly take advantage of the TouchSmart interface (Iq770), it installs fine, but then CRASHES. THe fluid interface shows up after the first boot, then disappears to a blank screen with a cursor which DOES respond to the mouse input.
Has any else tried the WIndows 8 Customer Release and have similar or same problems? Everything else (including the touch response) seemed to check out fine on the initial boot...just that the video disappears after the system crashes.

I'm having the same problem when try to boot a Presario CQ60 running windows 8. When I press the power button I see the COMPAQ screen with instructions to enter the startup screen. Then the screen goes black and there is no audio. This will continue untill I hold down the power button untill it forces down. Then if I immediately repower It will boot properly. The same symptom also occures if I attempt to reboot from a fully functional system.

make sure your system is able to run Windows 8....a good read
