    Any Video driver that doesnt make metro dissappear??


    I have an HP dv2913cl Laptop.
    I always have a hard time finding drivers for it. I have a few missing, which I will try to figure out later, but my main issue right now is my video driver. I can't seem to find any drivers that work on Windows 8 x64. If I cant get it to work I'll have to go back to Windows 7
    I have tried the video driver listed on the HP site and it installs fine, the picture quality/resolution is perfect but as soon as I log in and move the mouse the Metro screen goes completely blank. There is absolutely nothing on the screen. I have to hit windows key + D to get to the desktop.
    Once I uninstall the driver it goes back to the generic microsoft driver, the picture sucks but I can use metro no problem.

    I have tried the older driver version listed on that webpage and I have tried many others. None seem to work for me. Any ideas how to get it to work?? It says I have an
    NVIDIA MCP67M Graphics/Video Driver

    Thanks
