This does not sound like a Windows problem. It's more like a hardware problem with the video card. If you have recently update the video card drivers I suggest you revert to the older drivers.

Good luck

The standard method is to boot into safe mode (safe mode uses the generic VGA video drivers and should work if it isn't a hardware problem). Then you you can go to the hardware settings and revert to the older driver. But, Safe Mode can be difficult to enter in Win 8. I suggest you read these instructions:
