    Edit: rebooted it and for some reason i now can reset the whole computer. It's restoring as we speak. Let's hope for the best! Again, thank you very much for your help!
    You might have to reinstall windows 8. How did you install it? Or did it come pre-installed. If it came pre-installed, access the bios menu, and their should be an option to reset your pc to factory edition(when it left the factory).
