    Default video driver crashes in Windows 8 CP

    Hi all,

    My video driver crashes in Windows 8 Consumer Preview. Any advice how to get a working video driver? Here is the thing:

    I get the fish, it goes black, then dead. I get the error video_tdr_ and then something I can't read because I have 1 second.

    Any advice how to get a working video driver on this install for my HP envy?

    If you are still using Win 8 CP, then you should consider updating to Win 8 RP using this method. Win 8 RP updates many things including a larger driver base. It does require a Clean Install. Perhaps this is all you need.

    You do not even say what video card you are using.

    Have you tried to do a startup repair? Check if you're able to boot.

    a. Insert the installation DVD or USB and boot Windows 8 from it.

    b. In the ‘Windows setup’ page select the ‘language to install’, ‘Time and currency format’ and the ‘keyboard or input method’ and click on ‘next’.

    c. Click on ‘Repair your computer’ and select ‘Troubleshoot’.

    d. Click on ‘Advanced options’ and select ‘Automatic Repair’ and select the operating system.
