Re: windows 8.1 tablet 2 issues

Manny: if you were talking about upgrading the BIOS, I would say stay with what works until it stops working. BIOS upgrades don't (so far) provide new usable features.

Yup I'm thinking the same. I don't have any problem with mine, so I'll stay put.

Ah - sorry, I now realise you were asking about upgrading your bios, not upgrading from Windows 8 to 8.1... My mistake. And yes, stay put if 1.22 is working.

Hey all. I just got the TPT 2 and updated all I could and got 8.1 pro on it. It is working great...but there is one quirk I'm noticing.

 

When I plug in the tablet the colors show pretty true. When I unplug the tablet, the contrast is high. It actually looks more vivid and I don't mind it. However, do you know how toggle this setting so It shows the same color scheme when it is plugged in or unplugged?

 

Thanks!

Re: windows 8.1 tablet 2 issues

Hi everyone.

Recently I done the clear install of Windows 8.1 on my TPT 2 32 GB due to high cpu load in standby after updating to Windows 8.1 via Marketplace. Now it's alright with that issue, but there are several new.

 

First, afterglow on the screen, i.e. desktop taskbar glowing when I switch from desktop to somethink black. That's real weird.

Second, camera settings in camera app are gone. Some of them still present in Charms bar settings, but I can't se any if I swipe screen vertically, there are only change camera, timer and exposure buttons. I can access this options through other app that use camera, but not to all, and now I can't shoot videos, the picture is all blurry and I can't adjust any settings. If I try to install lenovo integrated camera driver, it says that there are no devices; device manager shows that integrated cameras and flash are in system devices class now.

Third, brightness adjustment works inadequate.

 

My BIOS ver. is 2.11, I tried to install all lenovo drivers from TPT 2 support page, and still there are no progress. Any help would be appreciated.

Well, afterglow is not afterglow, not always present. Seems like just a driver issue. Waiting for update.

I will make it simple for all of you "The product doesn't fit for Use"

 


why should I be involved in checking my BIOS version, or re-install factory settings and lose my file, it's like buying a car and asking me to check mechanical settings, and even if I'm able to check these settings, the product doesn't work. THIS IS  BULL**bleep**.

 

For three days I've been trying to turn on my tablet after last update from Windows 8.1 and I can't do that.

 

ARE YOU SATISFIED WITH THE MONEY YOU ARE GETTING FROM SELLING SUCH RUBISH TO CUSTOMERS!!!!
