    Uninstall NVidia driver and reboot, let windows load the driver and see whether it helps.

    I had this same issue this morning. Spent a bunch of time with Microsoft but ultimately got disconnected from them and decided to fix it myself. I basically solved it by disabling everything on start up that I could get away with. I haven't pin pointed the specific item yet, but I did disable the following:

    Intel Proset/wireless Framework
    Lenovo OneKey Theater App
    Lenovo Energy Management Software
    Lenovo Battery Software
    MS Onenote quick launcher
    MS Skydrive
    Realtek HD audio manager
    USB 3.0 Monitor

    After I turned those things off, everything works great. My hunch is that it is either the Realtek HD or USB 3.0 monitor.

    BTW: I am running a Lenovo y570 if that helps

    EDIT: I just realized this is an old thread....

    Sure, the Win8's new task manager can disable start up items. Start task manager, right clicking the toolbar when you are on desktop. Then click on the start up tab. Right click and select disable. It turns out I was wrong both the Realtek HD and USB 3.0 monitor are running fine. The culprit for me was OneKey Theater. Disabling that and you should be fine.
