    That error code could also be indicative of a hardware problem. Now, if I were you, I would try installing another OS, like Ubuntu, to see if you get the same results before trying to troubleshoot a (potential) Wiindows 8 installation problem. Then, if that installation fails the same way, I'd return it to the store pronto! See here: Download Ubuntu | Ubuntu
