More about preview installation shows black screen
  1. Did you replace windows7 with windows8? If u did that's probably a bad idea
  2. Well..it seems like you have not upgraded but did a fresh install of Windows 8 replacing the previous one. If you have done so, there might be some problems like this was just a preview version not a full install. By the way, is it working fine now ?

  4. Make sure you have the latest bio update. I was also getting the black screen after I first installed Windows 8, I then went ahead and updated my laptop bios, and sure enough it worked. Do note that you must have a working operating system in order to install the bios update( I had to reinstall windows 7-->bios update--->re-install windows 8).
