    Updated to Windows 8.1, but it broke my PC.
    I tried everything, updating all drivers, old and new versions, with Hardware ID and softwares.

    You may have to do a clean install to fix it. You can download windows 8.1 here, Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help , its option one here, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create. You can install and activate with your 8.0 key.

    You could also try the "Enable low resolution video" option an advanced startup, Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode) - Windows Help
