I just installed Windows 8.1. I have a Gigabyte GA-970A-D3P mobo. 1 stick 8 GB RAM, FX-6300 CPU, and a Radeon HD7770 video card. It seemed to install just fine, but when it gets to the desktop (or whatever they call it now), it crashes to a black screen after approximately 2-3 mins. No error messages or warnings.
I've uninstalled, reformatted, and reinstalled 8.1 twice, but it continues to have the same problem. Any ideas as to what the problem could be?
