    Default Media Center crashes system on startup.

    Previously Media Center was working fine when I was running Windows 7.

    I've recently installed Windows 8 on my HTPC. After that I installed Windows Media Center using the Add Features.

    However when I try and run MC by clicking the icon, the screen goes black and the computer does not respond (Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't do anything). I have to hit the switch on the back and turn it on again.


    It uses intergrated graphics on the Intel motherboard, i've updated to the lastest graphics drivers from the Intel website.

    Has anyone had this issue before?

    How did you install Win 8, an Upgrade Install, or a Custom Install from removable media you created?

    An Upgrade install from the DVD.

    I might try and do a clean install.

    The Clean (Custom) install from DVD is the MUCH better option. Good for you to burn the DVD, many have not and must start over woth the download to Custom Install.
