Problems with Windows 8 Dev Preview (Sound/Graphics/Control Panel) RRS feed

  • Question

  • So my when I originally installed the dev preview on my laptop, everything worked fine until earlier today when my sound just stopped working. I tried restarting but that didn't help. I can't test the speakers because it says another application is using them.

    That is only the beginning of my problems, however, as pretty much all of the metro apps will not run. For example, when I try to run copper it tells me Error, possibly in relation to hardware accelerated graphics. 

    I decided to try a system restore but when I search and click on it, it never launches. Same thing with Windows Update.

    Any help is much appreciated.
