This is just a post to help others that had the same problem I did. Windows 8 does not include Open GL (which AMD calls Open CL) support on older ATI Radeon cards like the HD 2000, 3000, and 4000 series. So after a bunch of hunting around, I found the drivers that do work, so you can keep on playing games that need it, most notably – Minecraft. The file is considered a “hot-fix” from AMD so it wasn’t obvious on the site. Here’s the link: http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/catalystlegacywin8.aspx.

It’s Thanksgiving today and besides the usual stuff like health and family, I am also thankful to Sharp. They looked at my TV pictures and said it was a problem called delamination where LCD layers separate. They are taking care of me by picking up the TV and replacing it with a newer refurbished unit. That’s great customer service! I have 2 Aquos TV’s in my house and thanks to service like this, I would buy again. Maybe the 90″ model! Well maybe not anytime soon but I can dream. I’m grateful that Sharp stands behind their products.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
There are strange lines creeping in from the sides of the TV. The TV is 4 years old so I wouldn’t expect problems so soon. The TV has been in the same location since I got it and has never been subjected to any physical trauma. The lines are there all the time but I photographed it on the Xbox login screen so they would be obvious. Anyone know what this is? Can it be repaired? I contacted SHARP so I’ll post the reply I get here on this page.
Here are some photos.
