    Win8 fast startup problems


    Hi guys , i have a problem. My win8 doesn't start up properly. I get a black screen when i start the os and i can only move the cursor. I've upgraded all the drivers and the bios. If i turn fast start up off everything works just fine.
    I really hope to fix it, 'cause i wouldn't like to turn off the fast start up forever.

    fwiw;
    I had maybe that problem intermittently, would reinstall the graphics driver and be ok for a while then start happening again.. Then intel came out with a newer version HD3000 graphics driver dated middle of Jan2013. Problem solved for me.
    I had not experimented with unchecking the fast boot option.

    Have you tried Automatic Repair - Run in Windows 8?
