  • What is the make and model of the netbook you have Windows Developer Preview installed on?  Did this issue recently start, or has it been performing this way since you installed the OS?

    Also, does your netbook meet the minimum requirements for running Windows Developer Preview?


    ·     1 gigahertz or faster 32-bit or processor

    ·     1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)

    ·     16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

    ·     DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver


    I would also suggest visiting the manufacturer's website and downloading the latest graphics driver.
