    Windows 8 automatic repair loop

    I Just bought a new computer with Windows 8 already installed, started using it, and every 30 minutes after i booted it, it crashed. So i tried to restore the initial definitions of the computer by using the option to do so. While the computer was being restored, it crashed, and then started my problems. I booted the computer again, but now it goes automatically into automatic repair, goes to diagnose and the computer restarts, repeating the automatic repair "loop". I already tried shift+F8, it makes a screen appear for a few seconds saying to press ESC to get to the startup menu, no matter what i do at that moment the computer starts the "loop" again.Please Help Me!

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
    & made the Startup Repair CD.
    Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8
    System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8

    Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

    You can order OEM Recovery disks from your OEM manufacturer's website.

    I would return to the Retailer for Repair or Replacement.

    I had this problem when I tried to update a sata driver. When I restarted the computer, it would go into automatic repair without question and it would fail. The only way you can fix it (to what i've experienced) is if you saved a "restore point" or if the computer did one automatically. I installed it freshly, updated the drivers right away and I got that problem. So I had to refresh/ clean install windows again and I avoided that driver. Worse case, have to reinstall windows 8, carefully install the updates/ drivers and create a restore point, so if you go into automatic repair, it will find a restore point and you can roll back to before you installed such driver/update.

    I'm sure someone else can help you better, but this was just my experience and what I did to solve my problem.

    I hope this helps you somewhat.

    P.S if you bought a new computer, you may have a warrenty or something, the problem can be something else. Good Luck!
