    Hello Churin,

    It looks like you may have disabled all your shut down settings and such. Was it always this way, or happen after doing anything specific?

    Hello Brink, I always amazed with your reply in lightening speed!!

    What I did which I do not normally do is removing pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys before upgrading(in-place) to W8.1. I restored the hiberfil.sys but no effect on the problem.

    That shouldn't have affected this.

    You might see if doing a repair install may help.

    The repair install I tried failed. There was no message explaining why. Check disk, System File Checker found no problem. I disabled all service but for those for Windows, and disabled all startup application softwares, but still the repair install failed.

    The OS was originally W7. I do not think the problem was on the W7 but cannot say this for sure. The W7 was upgraded to W8 with everything including apps etc. inherited. W8 was then upgraded to W8.1 likewise, which is the present situation. Upgrading W8 to W8.1 was time consuming and pains taking process: The update installation could be done only for 5 or so of them at a time when the total updates listed were over 200.

    Any other suggestion will be very much appreciated to save my W8.1?

    Pleased to report that the problem is resolved by installing the graphic card drivers.
    Thanks for trying to help me.

    Thank you for posting back with your findings. Odd that a graphics driver would cause that.

    The driver for the video card was "Microsoft basic driver" which must have been since W7. The problem might have something to do with my monitor being 4K or 3840 x 2160.
