just what are the specs on this machine? Did you run a Windows 8 compatibility tool to see if this machine would even run win8?

think it's called Modern...but anyhow, your video must be capable of at least
1024 x 768, so if your graphics adapter and monitor can handle this, try
setting your resolution to this or higher.

I take it you are having trouble finding a Windows 8 driver for your video card?

Accoring to http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/latitude-d820 your laptop either has an Intel 945gm video card or a Quadro NVS of some sort. The Intel card only has Windows 7 drivers (which may work??? I'm not sure). I'll leave you to look up the Quadro drivers.
