So I've put Windows 8 on my ST... I've noticed if I install the N-Trig, it crashes the OS.
Has anyone else out there put it on their ST yet? What have your experiences been?
Put the Win 8 consumer preview on last night over existing Win 7 installation. N-Trig doesn't crash the os, but it doesn't work.
Tried uninstalling the drivers, and reinstalling. Nope. Let Win 8 search and install, and got something called N-Trig duo bulk. Kind-of works, but is not smooth, and only has single touch. Found some other threads that say to run the N-Trig dpinst executable as admin. That installs the drivers, but Winows 8 disables the multitouch function with some error it found, and single touch does not work.
Ran diagnostics. Nothing. Grabbed the most current drivers from both Dell and N-trig. Nothing.
So, at this point, only the single touch functions using the N-Trig duo bulk which came from Win 8 hardware rescan. Meaning multitouch functions do not work.
By the way, the pen works whether N-Trig is there or not.
I loaded Win 8 on my ST as well. I had to reinstall the drivers for a number of components. Even though the driver for the wireless NIC installed it says that it can't start the device. Were you able to get yours working and if so what did you have to do?
Another day out, but somewhat forward.
I have everything working -- mostly. I did a clean install in Win 8 CP -- in other words, I wiped out everything and started from scratch. Installed Win 8 CP, which of course did not have a lot of the drivers, so I made sure I had the latest from Dell and added them in the following order:
1 - Updated the BIOS to A03
2 - Network driver R317737_ZPE (really not necessary as this appears to be a USB to Ethernet driver)
3 - Intel Chipset software A00_R311637
4 - Network driver R316053
5 - Video driver NJ0X3_A04_ZPE
6 - Audio R312580
7 - Radio adn Rotate Control R317878
8 - N-Trig multi-touch digitizer A00_R313366
While things are working, I'm not convinced multi-touch is functional, but I'm not sure exactly how to test it. The photo app doesn't seem to allow zoom in - out via multitouch (like you'd expect on either an Android or iPad), so, I'm at a loss there. At least all the drivers show they're present and operational.
(Although, I notice that for N-Trig, there's only one thing listed and in the original Win 8 install over Win 7, there were about 7 or 8 items listed.)
Let me just say that I really resent not having the Start button, and am really missing the run command. That's a Win 8 issue, and not a Dell ST hardware issue, so it's a whine here unrelated to the hardware.
I've done a clean install of Win 8 on my ST also. The default camera APP in Windows 8 isn't working. Nothing is diplayed on teh screen except a black box, although Video and Pictures can be taken unsing it. Anyone else have this issue?
Hi, excuse my English. Today I installed Windows 8 on my Latitude ST and to me the camera not work.
It seems that there are also other driver issues.
I did not understand, the video driver section 5 of Don E F (NJ0X3_A04_ZPE) is not the video driver, is the camera driver, is a mistake? Thank you.
Installed the Windows 8 Consumer Preview (32 bit) today on my Dell Latitude ST. Updated my BIOS to version A03 and it works OK for the most part...
Issues found so far:
All in all: it works, but the device doesn't provide the true Windows 8 experience. The screen resolution is too low for app snapping (requires at least 1366x768), and the device feels a bit slow when you give it a heavier workload. Cut The Rope even warns that the device is to slow, and rotating from landscape to portrait and back isn't nearly as fast as it should be. If you consider buying the Latitude ST: hang on untill Windows 8 is released and slates with Windows 8 are available.
N-Trig multi-touch drivers for Windows 8 are now available at www.ntrig.com/Content.aspx they work, although it is not as smooth as on an iPad or modern Android tablet. That's probably due to the tablets limited processing power, and not the drivers.
I'm having the same issue trying to get the front camera working. It worked when I had Windows 7 installed.
I've noticed that if I install Skype, for some reason Skype has the ability to toggle between both the front and the Back camera. once the camera is toggled in Skype. the camera is then switched in the Os.
Its funny that Skype has the correct drivers and the drivers that ship with Dell by Dell are not working? Also event though Skype has the proper drivers for the Front and Back camera by adding them to the system it still doesn't make the stock Windows 8 camera app work or the Dell Web Cam Central.
Things I still cannot get to work in Windows 8 CP:
intel graphics media accelerator 600
