Windows 8 pro problems on Netbooks.

Recommended Posts

I recently changed my OS from win 7 starter to win 8 pro 32 bit on my Neo Netbook.

I already fixed the resolution issue/problem of win 8 on my Neo Netbook but I still encounter problems.


When doing something on my Netbook like for example typing or even just staring at my Netbook.

It randomly crashes.

What will I do?

Please help me :(

Can you post your specs for the notebook.

It may not have the power to run W8.


W7 Starter was a stripped down version designed for low memory notebooks.


Minimum requirements for pro are:






  • 1 GHz processor or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2

  • 2 GB RAM / 20 GB available hard disk space

  • 1366 × 768 screen resolution

  • DirectX 9 graphics processor with WDDM driver

I can find no mention of that model on the Neo website, but after a bit of time on Google it looks as though it could be a "Basic B2161N", if this is indeed the case, then it is not W8 compatible - Or as you are finding it's not stable.


Time to return to W7, or Ubuntu Netbook Remix.

What's Ubuntu Netbook Remix?

Ubuntu Netbook Edition (previously Ubuntu Netbook Remix) is a version of Linux optimized for netbooks. A link to the last stable release is below.




This is a 700MB download, which may take up to two hours with a low performance high-speed connection, and is not practicable on dial-up.


With this version, you'd create a CD using the ISO file as a disc image, then boot the netbook from it (presumably from an external drive). Linux will run directly from the CD without changing anything on the netbook. If at some point you want to install it on the netbook, an installation option is also available on the CD.


If you prefer, it also possible to create an bootable USB flash drive from the ISO using a couple of small, free programs.
