    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7

    Was it something to do with HP Solution Center? That "program" is not just one program, it's a suite of programs, and one of them runs and looks for updates all the time. Sounds like that was the culprit. You don't really need it anyway, you want to keep any programs that are used to make the Fn keys function, and anything that has to do with the touchpad, but extra curricular HP 'Solution Center" programs are just not needed. If they cause problems, take em out.

    I have this problem too. Can you help me please? It just started doing it today after a Windows update (Windows 8). I have a test tomorrow and have an essay for friday, so it would be very nice if you gave a quick response. My laptop is an Acer E1-571.

    I had this same frustrating issue & this was how I resolved it.

    1. Since the flashing screen couldn't allow me restart my PC in safe mode, I pressed the power button to force a shut down.
    2. I pressed the power button to start up and pressed the power button again after 2 secs to create an unusual shutdown.
    3. On next attempt to start up (by pressing power button again), Windows tried to repair startup so I could now boot into safe mode with networking.
    4. I already realised the flashing issue had to do with my Norton 360 installation so I had to find a way to properly uninstall it.
    5. I Googled "Norton_Removal_Tool" from Norton and downloaded it.
    6. Since safe mode wouldn't normally allow installations, I downloaded "SafeMSI" to enable me install/unistall in safe mode.
    7. After running "Safe MSI", I installed "Norton_Removal_Tool" to remove all Norton products/services.
    8. The above action demanded a restart which I obliged to.
    9. Non essential step: I ran Malwarebytes to confirm that all is alright & switched to a new antivirus.
    10. My PC is back and happy again : )
