Display Problems after upgrading to 8.1

Hey Guys,

So after upgrading to 8.1 my display constantly flashes between my background as it normally is and the background being blank and task-bar disappearing rendering the PC useless. When I do a full restore( back to 8) the PC eventually upgrades itself to 8.1 again and so the cycle continues.
Any ideas?

Are all your drivers up to date?
