    I think it to be a video card overheating or on it's way out. A sudden shutdown is a good sign of that.
    Agree with you, my friend

    Well, it's midnight here and this kid has got to get to bed.

    I hope all works out for you, Maxxatrill.

    You're in good hands here at Eight Forums. I'll be sure to check in on the morrow.

    1. Because you say, that the problem occurred when you were playing a video game, and since the error message says "interface", I think it could be a graphics driver thing. Try to load windows in safe mode and see if it works. Booting into safe mode will disable graphics driver and most other drivers for the safe mode session.
    2. Although you can't do a system restore, in Windows 8, you have the option of doing a "Refresh". Here is a tutorial on that:
    Refresh Windows 8

    But I suggest that you should try doing a refresh if nothing else seems to work.
    I'm trying to do the refresh thing, problem is I cant access control panel. According to the microsoft website, the way to open it manually is by doing winkey + R then type in control. When I do this I get an error.Click image for larger version

    I'm not even sure if I have the original windows 8 discs either since my computer came with it installed already (I bought it through Dell) although I will look around to make sure.

    Any other idea how I can access control panel in a different way?

    It might help.

    Apparently I'm not even logged in as an administator, which is weird since I'm the only user on this computer. I figure I was already an adminstrator. I will try to find my windows discs to do a clean install, this is kinda driving me bonkers

    Also just wanted to say thanks for everyone who's given me advice

    So the cleaning to eliminate heat didn't work. We can't rule out a hardware problem, though.

    So it continues to boot with the same problem?

    PCs rarely come with install media. Upon the very first boot it will ask to make recovery disks. Laptops and some towers come with a recovery partition. What make and model is this?

    Are you sure you have no install media?

    Correct, the same problem is happening. Still cant open folders, still cant access the windows 8 menu. I'm even having trouble opening certain things through command prompt, such as control panel, but I'm able to open such things as ms paint, or calculator, etc. Just having problems accessing any settings. As for the make and model, I believe it's a
    Dell XPS 8700, though I'm not completely sure. I bought it through my dad's company rather than the Dell website so the prices are a bit different. But after looking on the dell website and inputting a few of the specs, I've narrowed it down to that one.

    And as for the discs, I just looked around and could not find them anywhere. Found discs for every thing else regarding my computer (monitor, keyboard, etc) but no windows discs anywhere.

    Still getting the "No such interface" error when trying to open it.

    Do you have a manual for it? From what I read on the Dell XPS 8700 one needs to make recovery disks. There's no recovery partition that I could see.

    Your choices as I see it is to get to get to disk management to see for sure if there's a recovery partition or not then boot to it if there is, get into System Restore to return it to an earlier time, or contact Dell for recovery media.

    This comes up when I try to system restore. Guess I'll just have to contact Dell. Thanks for the help
