Windows 8 RTM Black Screen on Inspiron N5110

This question has suggested answer(s)

Hi

I have installed Windows 8 RTM on my Dell laptop, but the graphics drivers do not work. I have tried the beta drivers from Intel and they do not work either (http://newsroom.intel.com/community/intel_newsroom/blog/2012/05/07/chip-shot-intel-hd-graphics-windows-8-driver-now-available-for-download). The issue is that Windows 8 does not recognise the laptop screen. It works great via a VGA monitor and if I disable the graphics driver the laptop screen works, but is limited to 1024 x 768, which isn't really of much use.

I'm sure Dell are already aware of this issue as it has been reported so many times already elsewhere, but I still can't find a solution. Intel is blaming Dell and Dell is ignoring the issue or at least being very uncommunicative... Can anybody point me in the riight direction to get this resolved?

Thanks

Jared
