Yesterday, for whatever reason I decided to download windows 8.1 since it was a free download. After the download it rebooted fine. I rebooted it again for whatever reason and got a black screen after the blue windows logo shows up.
This is a custom built computer also.
After a bunch of reboots I was finally given the option to boot with advance settings and I tried to do system restore. But the only system restore point I had was the 8.1 upgrade.
So I googled the problem and I saw alot of notebook users having the same problem due to some graphic drivers.
I tried to install them but I got an error saying it failed to load detection driver. Googled the problem and apparently you can't install drivers in safe mode. So now I'm stuck...and I'm not even sure if that's the problem.
I don't have the flash drive that I used to install windows 8 with, nor do I even have a flash drive...so im stuck. I'm stressed out and about to go to sleep so if anyone has any solutions please post them.
