    How to install windows 8 ?


    I had been using windows 8 and everything was fine till accidentally it downloaded windows 8.1 which i did not like ... so when it was saying to me that do you want to install windows 8.1 after downloading it , i said NO . But after that , all i have is a black screen. No matter if i swich it off through the switch butto in the laptop , it stills appears as black screen. Seems like the windows 8 has been uninstalled due to the download of windows 8.1 .


    Any advice on what to do ? I have also my folders which i think might have been delated after this

    Any help is appreciated
