Windows 8: Fixing Windows 8 Boot Issues

Last Update Date : Apr 03. 2018

Step 1:
Checking PC Power Supply Connection

1 Verify that computer power cord is properly connected to your PC.
2 Press the 'Power' button to check the power LED.

Step 2:

 Checking Monitor Connection

1 If your PC is connected to an external monitor, make sure each component has good connections.
2 Check if the external monitor is turned on, and then set the external monitor to the maximum brightness.
3 Press Fn + F3 key repeatedly to adjust the brightness for a laptop computer.

Step 3:

 Resetting BIOS Setup

1 Laptop: Remove all devices that are connected to the computer.

Desktop and all-in-one PC: Remove all devices from the computer except keyboard and mouse.

2 Press and hold the power button for at least 4 seconds to shut it down.
3 Turn the computer on again and immediately begin pressing F2 key 3-4 times repeatedly to access ‘BIOS setup’.
4 Press 'F9' key to initialize the 'BIOS' settings then press 'Enter' key.
5 Press 'F10' key on 'BIOS' settings to save and exit 'BIOS' setup.

Step 4:

Recovering System Files

1 Shut down the computer.
2 Turn the computer on again, run the 'Recovery' program.

(If your system fails to access 'Recovery', it could be due to hardware problem.)

3 Restore the boot files before restarting the system.

Step 5:
Restoring Your System to Its Original State

1 If an error message still appears, press and hold the power button for at least 4 seconds to shut it down.
2 Turn the computer on again, access the 'Recovery' program to roll back to its original status (see the video SS-102(E)).

If the problem persists after going through steps 1 to 5, it could be due to hardware problem.
