    Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit

    My start up sound comes and goes. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. I've just accepted it.

    Please don't ask why and how but I got startup sound and it's from Win7. Still can't choose which sound but it's there. If I was to guess it would be because this 8.1.1 and Win10TP i have in dual boot are syncing all the time and sound is enabled and running there.

Laptop won't start after hard reboot.
My laptop was frozen and I couldn't get to my start menu to restart it so I did a hard reboot. Now when I try to start the blue windows icon comes up for a few seconds with the rotating dots then the screen goes black. Eventually I hear the windows start up sound, but nothing on the screen.
