Well, does your laptop manufacturer even support windows 8.1? If not, then no you shouldn't do it until the laptop manufacturer says they do. If so , then you should check that laptop manufacturer's suggested "how to" list. 

But how are we going to even help if you don't even tell us what type of laptop it is...

Don't bother trying to upgrade at this time. Clevo have no posted drivers for windows 8.1 For your laptop.

http://www.clevo.com.tw/en/e-services/download.asp

You can try if you want by doing a fresh format, then installing chipset drivers, Sound, Then Video and give it a shot. You can use the windows 8.1 drivers that are provided *AS IS* by AMD.

Meaning its a simple curtisy driver provided by AMD and you may get lucky and it will work.  If it doesn't though. You are out of luck.

That sucks... Any idea when a new driver might show up? Even if you had to guess...

Thank you for the info.

For clevo not a clue, for AMD there are already drivers out, but they are "As is" only drivers.

So it may or may not work depending on how much of a "lock down" clevo puts on there laptops.
