    Default Graphic Aberrations in the form of black bars

    Hi there,

    I am running a Virtual Box Machine with Windows 8 RP, and I also used windows 8 CP in earlier time.

    After installing I ran a few apps and they all have black boxes that pop up when there is graphic activity. It is especially evident when scrolling, which creates bars going perpendicular to the direction I am scrolling. I consider it a major problem as the boxes block text and appear to cause the page to refresh constantly. I don't know whether it is a problem with Virtual Box or an issue inside the guest machine, because I have never had this problem in Virtual Box or in the same installation of Windows 8 CP.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    I do not know much about VM's, but there must be a method to update drivers within the VM. I would find out what graphics card you have, then go to the manufacturer's web site to see if there is a Win 8 specific driver (these are also beta at this point.). We have listed Win 8 specific driver download sites in several threads within this Forum. Take a look at some of the other threads.

    You have to remove the guest additions, they must be incompatible.
