Just a couple things about Win8:
#2, Did I have to choose Explorer 10 with this? Now I can't use the Chrysler site properly. They require IE 6, 7 or 8 for best results. IE10 is apparently not well supported.
Does the Chrysler site really require
IE? I always use Firefox, even in Win8.. but if you must use IE, you do know that there's two different versions of IE10 in the Release Preview right? The "Metro" App (tile) version, and the standard desktop version. I think the "Metro app" version of IE10 might have issues with some sites idk.. I don't use it.
if you use the desktop and launch ie through that it works differently and might be better for your preferances...
what kind of pc are you using??? if your not using a 5-touch capable tablet then the METRO interface (new start screenwith the boxes) is going to be anoying, slow, in the way, ANd clunky. its all about touch and the touch interface.
like an ipad/android, and lesser degree blackberry touch.
ive got win8 running on a 1k$+ tablet with a solid state drive.... 16gb ram i3 cpu. bitchen.
also- its a beta/preview nothings perfect yet.
i got my share of complaints.
I've been running the RP on my desktop (dual boot, alongside Win7) with a 24" HD non- touch display.. standard keyboard and mouse setup.. and love it. I think the new start menu screen is super fast, fluid and very pretty on my display.
I boot into Win8 when my PC is in it's entertainment mode lol.. I've found that to further promote laziness, the "Mobile Mouse" app (available for iOS/Android) works extremely well with the Metro interface... allows me to lay back on the bed and control Windows 8 with my iPhone.
--(so in a way, I do have touch! ;))
I didn't pull the specs on the machine I put the beta on but, it's a relatively newer laptop with at least 4 gigs of ram and was running win7 64 bit OS before the beta 8.
The issue was after logging in and pulling up techconnect for any VIN, the systems at the left side of the screen won't open. Like if I want to check for recalls/tsb's on a vehicle. All the systems e.g. brakes, engine, etc. won't open.
Yeah, I'd make sure you're using the desktop version of the browser and update Java as suggested above. Or try Firefox..
