    Windows 8 keeps restarting!


    Hi, this is my first post so I'm very sorry if its in the wrong place, as my laptop was restarting I "stupidly" I must say turn it off before it was finished restarting, now when I start it i won't stop going into recovery mode and restarting again without letting me do anything, I've tried going into safe mode by clicking f8 + shift and just f8, I also tried going into the boot by nothing works, it worked fine all the time never gave me any problem, I tried also to start it over with the windows 8 installation disk but it won't do nothing just keeps restarting , then it say it encountered a problem and is just getting some information an Ethan restarts again, I don't know what to do and some help would be very much appreciated.

    It's defined on Wikipedia as bleeding edge. Sucks. Experienced the same frustrations. Mine seems to be working fine now.

    1) Flash your BIOS to the very latest version for your motherboard (mine's an Asus and went from 0402 [03/2012] to 0802 [11/2012])
    2) Update your video card driver (also Asus)
    3) Update your hard drive firmware (mine's a Crucial SSD)

    Not sure which of these steps made it happy, but step 3 was when mine stopped being an @sshole.

    Hope that helps. Windows 8 is very new.
