Fix Black Screen Error During Installation Of Windows 8.1


One of the errors that users are experiencing when trying to update Windows 8 to  Windows 8.1 is a blank black screen that blocks the installation process from completing and reverts the original files to Windows 8. Microsoft also yet to release a fix, It appears that everything comes down to video card drivers, Windows 8.1 might not be compatible with some older driver of your operating system.

How To Fix Black Screen Error During Installation Of Windows 8.1


For solution of such issue, download Windows 8.1-compatible drivers, regardless of the model you have. In safe mode, disabled the Intel graphic card in device manager and restarted the laptop in normal mode then downloaded :

Then everything worked fine and you have to notice that Intel(R)n HD Graphics 4000 and AMD Radeon HD 8800M Series.

    As amongst all those handful of tax payers that essentially pay taxes; I feel we the tax payers need to demand that we stop sending monetary aid to these international locations or we stop paying out taxes to assistance points we will not concur with. Permit Obama, his administration and Cliniton pay for this aid; in its place of Michelle and family traveling.
