    As Vadim pointed out, what I recommended was a workaround for you to be able to have restore points created when you like.

    To actually fix this, you may need to refresh or reset Windows 8 if you do not have a restore point dated before this wasn't working that you could use.

    Personally, I would recommend to use the workaround for now to avoid a refresh or reset until you have time to do them.

    I received this HP Notebook g6-2237us, on March 19th, 2013, from Hewlett-Packard.

    Since that day I have had:

    5 Resettings with the help by telephone from HP technicians, due several problems in operating the Notebook.

    Installation of the OS by HP technician (free House call), using the CDs provided Free of charge by HP, as I could not get the R
    recovery disks the regular way.

    Sent the HP Notebook to HP facilities in La Vergne, Tenn., THREE (3) WEEKS AGO, to change the "connectivity card" as I was having continue problems with Internet.
    Also, they reinstalled the OS, ONE MORE TIME, as I was having problems using the System Restore (Restoration UNSUCCESSFULLY....).

    Then, After I received the "repaired Notebook" from La Vergne on July 24th, 2013, I started having problems with the screen: when I started up the screen was blinking ALL THE TIME every 3 seconds, for 2 days. I contacted the HP Case Manager and I was told to send the Notebook to La Vargne "for repair". During these 2 days I kept trying to get the screen to normal using functions keys F9 and F10 keys individual and together until I could enter the country until it started working again.

    So, as you can see it does not pay to do another reinstall or reset .

    Thank you.

    I'd say that if it's still under warranty, then I'd be asking for a new replacement. There's some defect with that one.

    Good for you, but it's not clear why you ignored the rest of my instructions. It's up to you, though, whether to use the workaround or just refresh/reinstall the OS or even send it back to HP, given other problems of which you informed us suddenly in a form of reminder O_o

No System Restore Points
Just thought I'd do a system restore point to get over a problem in another thread here and - there aren't any! Shouldn't windows automatically make them? I've had this problem for a year with windows 8 (now 8.1) and I think I even had it with 7. Before that it never seemed to be a problem.

No System Restore points
I've been running Windows 8 since 10/27 and just noticed there were no System Restore points. Doesn't Windows 8 automatically create them when a significant event occurs, like Windows Update? I created one manually but would like to see Win 8 create them.
