View Full Version : Blank screen loading after install
02-22-2012, 07:21 PM
Hi. I just installed Windows 8 (x86) on my desktop PC, and despite the installation was successful when I start the PC after the Windows 8 loading screen I get a blank screen.
I also tried to Google to find a solution but couldn't find any.
Thanks to anyone willing to help me.

Perhaps, currently we can only install windows developer preview in the virtualbox. you need to download the latest virtualbox. I never met the blank screen problem in the virtualbox.

Personally I don't think it is the problem of virtual PC. ch7usman said he installed in real.
At this moment, I don\'t have enough exp about this, however, try to recover your system, see if it goes normal after recovery. If not, then I suggest you try another new installation instead. Anyway, it costs not much time.

I have installed the 64bit version and have the same problem. I have tried to reinstall with the same result. I have noticed the mouse pointer is visible and the default power saving settings appear to be working.
I more than meet the minimum requirements.

I also have the same problem. I installed Windows 8 which I upgraded from Windows 7 and my screen is blank at booting. I have read other blogs and I found that the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 on my Acre laptop maybe the problem. If I plug in a monitor with an HDMI connection, the monitor and the laptop screen show Windows 8 with no other issues. Does anyone have any idea how this is happening?
