x300 Graphics issue on Windows 8 Developer Preview

I recently decided to install the developer preview on my x300 and none of the apps will open other than the file manager and the desktop. Later i found out that the resolution had to be greater than 1280 x 768 or something like that and the graphics are a terrible 800x600!!! How do i get my screen resolution and apps back!?
