About one quarter of my Metro apps show the loading screen and then load up a blank dark-blue screen. I cannot click on anything and the right-side menu shows but the menu items do not work. Apps like Google Search, Hulu Plus, and OneNote are doing this. I have already tried uninstalling then reinstalling to no avail. Any ideas?

The troubleshooter helped. I had to both update my Intel HD 4000 display driver and uninstall the DisplayLink driver. – Jason Christa Nov 21 '12 at 2:16
