What did you update the drivers to? What version? Where did you get them? Why did you install windows 8?...not 8.1? Open the CCC and see what driver version you have.

Well, whatever.....read the graphics driver installation guide in the FAQ section.

You cannot use the latest drivers as they no longer support Windows 8...use the free update to Windows 8.1.

Install windows 8.1, install all the important and optional windows updates (from windows update) and manually search the latest driver for that os or let windows download and install a driver from windows update.
