My brand new computer was working fine for the past week and a half. Today I woke up and was able to access everything just fine. When I returned later in the day, after a normal shutdown from my previous session, I booted and noticed that I was stuck at the
blue windows logo with the spinning dots for much longer than usual.
My computer with the SSD boots fully in about 15 seconds, with only maybe 2 seconds at the windows blue logo.
Now it is on a constant loop on the blue windows screen and will not boot. I also cannot boot from the recovery disc I was given for some reason.
Windows 8 was pre-installed onto my PC by Cyberpowerpc, the company I bought from.
I spent $2300 on this monster of a computer and I need it to work. I can't believe Microsoft would release Windows 8 with this problem, as I see many other people are having this issue.
Also of note: I disabled the hybrid shutdown, hibernation file, and pagefile, if that makes any difference. It didn't seem to before and worked fine for days. Now this has happened so I don't think it's related, but thought I should include it. I am also running
McAfee Internet Protection 2013. All of my drivers for all of my hardware was up to date.
