Black (backlit) screen on netbook after Windows 8 boot screen logo
I just got a new netbook that was preloaded with Windows 7, but I wanted to upgrade to Windows 8 so I did. I downloaded and installed the appropriate graphics driver from Intel, and mostly everything else works fine (crisper picture, HDMI-out functionality).
However, when I shut down the computer and turn it back on (using "Fast Startup" mode, which I'd prefer to keep using) it gives a black screen after the Windows 8 boot logo, which I can actually get around by putting the computer to sleep and waking it back
up. In addition, strangely it works fine when there is a HDMI cord connected, but not when no HDMI cord is connected.
I've exhausted all avenues where drivers are concerned, I dug around for more versions and such, but to no avail. Is there anything I can do, does anyone know a quick fix for this issue or have experienced it before?

Method 2: Perform Clean Boot and check if you are able to delete file.
To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows 8 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.
