Good Morning, I updated my Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 Laptop from Windows 8 Pro to Windows 8.1 Pro by using Store Application.
After Waiting for almost 6 hours, Update was done and after Windows setup, Display was black, Cursor was blinking.....I checked in Microsoft website and i found that not only me and many Dell customers are facing the same issue. i was luckily able to boot to safe mode and i uninstalled the both of my video drivers and i am back to my windows 8.1. After i update my video drivers as mentioned in the link below, still my screen blacks out. So i had no other option than resetting my pc to windows 8 pro.

When i was checking for latest driver for Intel Graphics & AMD Radeon that supports windows 8.1, I am able to find a driver in dell website.
http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/sg/en/sgdhs1/DriverDetails/Product/inspiron-17r-5737?driverId=6GGGM why it's not yet updated in the corresponding product driver list.... Actually i think these are the fix. I am not sure.
If any one has updated and i need a dell support for this
If you are unable to go to Recovery Mode by pressing F8 or F11. Try to force shutdown the system 2 or 3 times while booting and System will go to Automatic Repair and There you find an Option called "Advance Options" & "Restart". Select that Advance Options and proceed from Step 3.
I apologize for not seeing this sooner. There are specific video drivers that will need to be installed after updating to Windows 8.1
AMD Radeon HD 8670M Driver
AMD Radeon HD 8850M / 8870M Driver
Intel HD Graphics 4400 Driver
Please be sure to install the Intel driver before the AMD driver. Please post here if you continue to have problems with updating to Windows 8.1

Happy morning. Im also upgraded windows 8 to 8.1 in dell laptop 5537,I5,4gb ram,500Gb hardisk with intel grapics card 2Gb. after upgrading gone to black screen. i want to go to safe mode to disable the video card in dell laptop.but it is not possible for me.i already tried with F8 key,
kindly any friends knows how to go to safemode in dell laptops by step by procedure
After so much for research, I was able to figure it out the problem is because of Intel Video Driver. There is a beta Intel video driver package which supports Windows 8.1. Try to update that package and post your results. As i have already rolled back to windows 8. It will take atleast 4-6 hours for me to update the status. The link is below for Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 Model.
http://ftp.dell.com/published/Pages/inspiron-15r-5537.html and Install Intel HD Graphics 4400 Driver ver 10.18.10.3308. You have to follow the link as this driver is not yet uploaded in Dell Drivers & Downloads (refered in Dell Post)
There is other way also to enter Recovery Mode. If you are able to boot to OS. launch Charms screen, Select "Settings" and Click on Power icon. Press Restart by holding the Shift Key. System will go to recovery mode.

i'm looking forward to your response.. thank you
i have dell 5537 i5 laptop with mcafee anti virus free
but i update my window 8 to 8.1 and come back on window 8 because some problems.
now my McAfee anti virus not working not set up and also web cam is not working please tell me what is do for my prob.lems
ans also diagnosing system not working,
I would wait to install the drivers until after 8.1 is installed.
I suggest completely removing MacAfee from the computer, restart the system and then reinstall MacAfee and see if the problems continue.
As far as the webcam not working, what program are you using with the webcam, have you tried other programs to see if the problem continues?
good day ..

I wonder on what shall i do if i try once again to update my laptop and face the same issue..
I'll wait for your reply... thank you so much
