    At the black screen, press and hold the power button until the system

    With the system still powered off, press and hold the Shift and F8 keys.
    While still holding Shift and F8, press and release the Power button.
    Continue to hold Shift and F8.
    The Lenovo logo should appear on the screen followed by Please Wait.
    Release Shift and F8 at this time.
    The Recovery screen should appear. If only a blank screen appears and not
    the Recovery screen, retry steps 1-5.
    From the Recovery screen, click on See advanced repair options.
    Click on Troubleshoot.
    Click on Advanced Options.
    Click on Startup Settings.
    Click on Restart.
    The PC will now reboot to the Startup Settings screen.
    Press 4 to Enable Safe Mode as prompted.
    The PC will now boot to Safe Mode.
    Enter your user name and password as prompted to log into Safe Mode.
    Open the Start screen.
    Type “devmgmt.msc” and press Enter to start Device Manager.
    Double-click on Display Adapters to expand the Display Adapters category.
    Right-click on the specific AMD Radeon HD device or nvidia device and
    choose Uninstall from the menu.
    At the Confirm Device Uninstall prompt, check the box Delete the driver
    software for this device and then click on OK.
    Restart the PC.
    The PC will now boot to Windows normally.
    Enter your user name and password as prompted to log into your PC.
    Make sure your internet connection is working and then run Windows Update.

  16. Simply click on the Menu button in Chrome and select Relaunch Google Chrome
    in Desktop (or the opposite Windows 8) mode. You will then be transformed
    to the Modern UI app in couple of seconds. Done. Simple.

  17. Or you can just hit the power button onthw sign in screen hold shift then
    click restart >.>

  18. So it was my GPU driver that caused it… 

  19. Windows 8.1 likes to turn on laptop camera randomly and take pictures

  20. this doesn’t work for me,but i found new way that is press F12 into the
    boot options and choose first selection

  21. shift F8 doesn’t do anything here; the only thing I can do is adjust the
    sound (which is kind of useluss atm), connect to a second screen (if one
    black screen doesn’t suffice) and a bunch of other useluss things;
    otherwise I can only see the mouse

  22. When I try to get in safe mode, I get the same black screen… Impossible
    to do anything. 

  23. such BS EA hasn’t fixed this crap. This is why I won’t bother purchasing
    another one of their games.
