wtf is wrong with windows 8.1

Set up my new PC, and I click the bottom left corner of the screen and it starts downloading some crap, and I try to open it up and I can not so it wont let me see what it is downloading and then, the whole screen goes blank.

Now my whole screen is blank and all I can see is my mouse moving around, I powered off the PC by holding the power button and I turn it back on and I still have this f***ing blank screen. Windows 8 is s***.

Looking all over the internet, no solutions work. I never thought owning a gaming PC would be so frustrating.

Don't restart when updating. Bad things happen.

Pictures always help, is it a legit copy of windows? Did you install all the drivers correctly?

Oh, You restarted in the middle of an update? bad bad bad

I got that blank screen issue after installing sql connectivity.
But it was on a VM so I didn't care.
Basically installing .net 2 and 3.5, then immediately installing sql connectivity and mdac without rebooting in-between completely killed it.

But I somehow doubt that is your issue.

No I did not restart in the middle of the update. Lmfao I would never do that.

Apparently this problem is massively common and not many people can get it fixed, I am reading comments on youtube and microsoft answers and a whole bunch of other websites.

Is it a legit copy of windows? Try starting it in safe mode and uninstalling the video drivers, then reinstalling them.

This happened on a laptop i was working on at work one day. I narrowed it down to the video drivers in that particular case. Reverting to windows 7 did the trick

Yes it is legit, and I am in safe mode now and I am following what they do in the videos (youtube) and nothing works.
