Turn off hardware acceleration

Sometimes, it may not be clear if setup completed or not. If you see Office 2013 shortcuts on the Start screen in Windows 8, or under All Programs > Microsoft Office 2013 in Windows 7, it's likely that setup completed successfully.

If the problem happens when you try to start one of the Office applications, and it crashes or nothing occurs (perhaps the screen flashes briefly), there may be a video card compatibility problem. To workaround this problem, follow the information to turn off hardware acceleration in this article: Visual features or video quality may differ from one computer to another in Office 2013.
