    Hello Atif, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Is your network driver certified for Windows 8?

    I've read elsewhere that someone reported that turning off Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) in their network adapter properties sorted this for them. You might try the same to see if may for you as well.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Brink

    Thanks for replying. Well, as I said I have been using original Windows 8 Pro since a month now (once it was available), i never had such problem which shows that my network driver is fully compatible with Win 8. I applied fast reboot thing just yesterday and problem started than... And its weird that its not happening every time.... Its a slight tweak that may be needed. Turning off IPV6 may hamper my other Internet experience as IPV6 is now the "in" thing and service providers are now being switched to this in addition to IPV4... I am not a pro so I wonder, i might not hamper some internet experience (happening in the background) after disabling IPV6???

    I'm not aware of to many sites using IPV6 so far, but this is really just a test to see if it may help or not. It's not going to affect anything other than IPV6 connectivity. It can quickly be turned back on after testing though if you wanted to give it a try.

    Hello!

    It appears that Hybrid Boot on my puter decided to take a Christmas vacation as it appears to not be working. I have hibernate enabled, as I use it daily as my motherboard doesn't support sleep correctly, or at least I need to jump some pins or something to get a sleep mode going. I have Fast Boot enabled, used Group Policy to force it, cycled it on and restarted and turned it off and restarted and turned it back on, and nothing. It's just like a normal boot, I feel like I'm using Windows 7 or something, what is this blasphemy!?

    I do not know what to do, but I've noticed that when I go to the Power Options to turn on Hybrid Boot, a message on top says that some settings are being managed by a local system administrator. My person is my administrator, so I don't know where it's coming from to say that. This just happened kind of recent as well.

    Hello Andy,

    The being managed message is most likely from the policy that you enabled for fast boot. You could use the tutorial below to quickly check to see what policies you have enabled that may be responsible.

    OK, so I defaulted the Fast Boot settings back to Not Configured and the message is now gone.

    As for fast boot being enabled, I will check that.

    Nope, Hybrid Boot is still not working. It's still doing a clean shutdown and startup.

    It seems I may have to wait until next year it seems for Hybrid Boot to come back from vacation...

    Andy,

    Odd, do you remember if you may have made any changes to anything right before it stopped working?

    You might see if doing a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated when it was working may help.

    Regarding Andy's problem...

    Sorry for bothering guys, but it seems I have the same problem.

    It seems this was like that from the moment I've enabled it a week ago.

    The settings are default from a HP OEM install. I don't know if they changed something default from Win8 settings or not.

    Any ideas will be most appreciated.

    Thanks

    If you guys have a motherboard with UEFI, then also check to see if Fast Boot is enabled in UEFI as well.
