    Windows 8.1 is not showing text in any form


    I am running windows 8.1. I just turned on my computer and got the following screen. It wont recognize keyboard input as normal characters nor will it allow me to connect to the internet. It was perfectly on 3 hrs ago before I turned it off then back on again.

    The link below shows you what my current windows 8.1 screen looks like.

    Something is Fubar. Possible bad video driver. Can you boot into Safe mode?
