X1C 1st Gen Black screen after driver update

Hi,

I hope someone can help me with this problem. I obtained a X1C 3444-GYU from a friend. The display needed to be replaced which I did. I wiped the drive and reinstalled windows 8.1 and everything works with the microsoft display drivers. However when I update for the Intel HD 4000 drivers through windows update or manually I get a black screen during driver installation and when I restart the computer freezes during windows loading.

I'm able to boot in safe mode and roll back drivers then everything is fine.

Do you have the Product Recover DVD's ?

It might be easier with this method...

Unfortunately no I don't have the DVDs and Lenovo says my x1c is not eligible for recovery download. Does someone have the DVD's and could upload an image?
