I am making the switch back to an integrated video card, because I dont play much games and want to sell my expensive video card and power supply. When I removed the video card and turned on the computer, the log in screen was in a 800x600 resolution, then when I logged in, I was in the metro start menu (Windows 8) and many files are missing in the menu such as Chrome. Then, the screen automatically switches to my actual monitor resolution, which is 1400x900, but and all the icons are back, but as soon as I move my mouse, it says Windows 8 has gone through a problem and will restart (and it shows a percentage of completion to fix the problem), then once the computer restarts, the same cycle happens again: low resolution, missing icons, switch back to 1400x900, icons back, crashes again, forces restart.

What should I do?

Easiest thing would be to reinstall windows.
If you want to work at it, boot into safe mode and uninstall the old GPU drivers, both of them. Reboot and let windows reinstall the iGPU drivers and then update those drivers.

What do you mean let Windows reinstall the iGPU drivers? Do you mean this is supposed to occur automatically?
