    Default I get a black screen when trying to boot windows 8 CP

    Hi all,

    I installed the Windows 8 CP. Now I am downloading updated display drivers from the nVidia website and I just get a black screen when trying to boot. During the driver install process, the screen went black. I waited a few minutes then restarted the computer. I can see the fish logo as Windows boots, but then the screen just goes black again and I can't do anything.

    How can I resolve the issue?

    peraza, welcome to the Forum!

    First off, you need to install Windows 8 RP. CP was released almost 4 months ago, & RP is a huge improvement over CP. Get it here.

    Windows 8 Download, Windows 8 Release Preview Download, Windows 8 RT Download,Windows 8 ISO

    Too, it's not usually necessary to add 3rd party drivers unless absolutely necessary (like if you have poor graphics). MS has tested the provided drivers, & most have had no issues with graphics. Don't fix what isn't broken.

    Try Win 8 RP & see what you think.

    Thanks for the quick response, Cat.

    In fact, I was trying to avoid re-installing. But it seems thats the only way. Thanks for help.
