    Hi all

    Unable to install x32 or x64 bit version on dell n5110 which has intel HD Graphics 3000, it installs right upto checking your devices and then the screen goes black and thats it... nothing else... :angry2:

    I am thinking maybe a graphics card video driver issue maybe, strange as the development version work ok ?

    UPDATE**

    OK, windows infact does install, but unable to view anything on the laptop. If i connect an external monitor it works, so dont understand why. Installed the Dell disply drivers using the external monito to see and still nothing on the laptop screen, if i book intowindows 7 it works ok, so its something to do with windows 8. I have even injected the driver into the install.wim, but still not working.. strange as the developers version worked ok??? :mad::mad:

    Try to run Windows update from external monitor. Maybe one of the 6 or 7 updates includes a fix for your problem.

    I think this is the issue of screen resolution. You should try to lower the default resolution in Windows 8 to support your laptop's screen.

    i think its just a problem if your screen resolution too....try to change it if not working......go to your BIOS and try to chanfe yur graphique card size to be compatible with 3D

    I did an upgrade from windows 7 too, and that went the same way, installed al ok upto the part when it says "getting your devices ready", and then Black Screen and nothing after that!, unless i plug in an external monitor, uninstalled driver, reinstall nothing at all!.
