    @ johnmpc94 and sargey. Please post what BIOS version each of you have. I think Mystere is onto something here.

    Another option is to install Win 8 RTM in which it handles devices more smoothly though it will run for 3 months only

    When was it released? Do you mean the leaked RTM Pro?

    Thanks, surgery. That shoots that theory. For you anyway. It may not be the case for the thread starter.

    I'm glad you found this thread where others are helping. This is beyond my knowledge.

    Just to be sure -> You found nothing in Control Panel -> Performance and Information Tools -> Advanced Tools and/or Events Log?

    MSDN / Action pack users can get Windows 8 now.

    If it still doesn't work you may need to do a System Integrity Check By Shawn Brink.
    Choose option two from the tutorial if you feel option one isn't your choice, then post back here

    Hope that helps you.
