    A lot of people are getting a black screen after updating to 8.1, but I had no problems getting to 8.1. I was foolishly looking around and tried to install a skin pack that was supposed to be compatible with windows 7/8, and after I downloaded and installed it I had to restart my Surface Pro 128 GB and upon logging in on restart I only get a black screen. I don't have a cover for it, and I only bought it yesterday. PLEASE HELP!
    I've tried every solution on the internet I swear!

    Tried pressing shift (or the arrow since its touch screen keyboard) while restarting
    I don't have a recovery image and you can't find one anywhere on the internet
    Tried making a bootable windows 8 USB HDD

    HELP ME

    not sure if this would work but if you can get it to a projector and plug it in. see if it was skinned across all 'extended screens' which i doubt
    give it a shot im not sure it will work though.
    good luck

    also try booting it into safe mode like you would do with a jailbroken ios device.

    I have experinced the excact same problem. Black screen after logging on. But both times it has helped to connect a projector or an extra screen. But I fear being on the move without an extra screen or projector.

    What to do?

    I haven't figured out how to start my Surface Pro 3 in safe mode. How do I get the screens showed in this: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows-8/ss/windows-8-safe-mode.htm
