Specs: Windows 8
I just installed windows 8 on my laptop but before I did I had windows 7 my laptop crashed and was going through the infinite boot loop now with windows 8 on it when I try to install or Download it goes straight to a black screen with no cursor or anything on it but the computer is still on.

✔ Best Answer
Start by testing the hard drive. If that's okay, move on to checking something else.
You can test the hard drive with HGST Drive Fitness Test for DOS:

Create CD from the CD image using ImgBurn: http://filehippo.com/download_imgburn

Boot your laptop from the CD when you've made it.

If hard drive passes the test, try an external monitor plugged in to the laptop to see if you get an image. If you do, your laptop's graphics adapter is probably faulty.
