    Hi, I have been running Windows 7 x64 and just decided to upgrade to 8 yesterday.
    I got 8 up and running then I installed the 8.1 update and activated with the MTK in this section. Well, now I'm having the following two issues after upgrading to 8.1:
    My previous games the I played on Windows 7 Flawlessly get major FPS lag,
    My "Games" app in the Windows Start Menu won't connect to my Microsoft account no matter how many times I click retry (I'm connected to the store and my account is linked to this PC but the Games app just wont open.)

    My hardware (If needed):
    CPU: Intel Core I5-3570k
    RAM: Corsair 8GB DDR3
    SSD: Samsung 830 Series
    HDD: 1TB HDD
    Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4

    (Note: I am using on-board Intel HD4000 graphics.)

    What would be the best way to go about fixing this? I'm almost to the point of switching back to 7 but if I can get this fixed I'd prefer that. I'm enjoying the features that 8 offers so far; even though I'm having some major issues.

    I downloaded the 8.1 64-bit Core/Pro ISO from the 8.1 Repository thread, and I downloaded the Windows 8 64-bit from a different source as the links were deleted here.
    Should I just burn the 8.1 ISO to a disk and do a clean install over the current one?

    Check the drivers and see that they match your computer manufacturer's recommended drivers & try updating drivers too.Try that first and feedback plz.

    That was the first thing I tried and sadly, no luck. :|

    I agree with the fresh install with a pure Windows 8.1 ISO.

    Most probably he did a fresh install already.Let's wait and see if his problems are solved.

    My apologies, I had read it as him performing an update from a Windows 7 base installation. Then in his last sentence he suggests "performing a clean install over the current one"
