Updates :: Windows 8.1 Updated And Now Stuck On Loading Sign

Aug 1, 2014

I recently, restored my acer m5-581ptg to factory settings, since it is an older version (2012), there were about 111 updates that needed to be installed. That all went fine and then on startup, it starts up and shows the loading sign and 'please wait'.

I tried tapping f8 and shift + f8 with no luck whatsoever, and i also disconnected from power supply and took out battery, and restarted, still starts up 'no funny noises or anything' and then just sits on 'please wait'.

Dell Latitude 100l With Windows 8.1 - Loading Files And Get Black Screen

Oct 22, 2013

I have an old Dell Latitude 100l laptop, with XP installed. I use it for University work. Now I've was able to download from Uni a copy of Windows 8.1, as an ISO image onto a DVD disc.

When i try and boot to the disc, it says "loading files"........and after a while i just get a black screen.

Is this because I cannot load Windows 8.1 onto my Dell laptop?

Setup Installation :: Win 8.1 Stalls During Loading Screen?

Feb 8, 2014

Today, I restart my PC and now it refuses to load Windows. I have changed nothing recently, neither in BIOS nor software. It was a simple, routine restart and it hasn't worked since. I even tried re-imaging my primary drive from 1 month ago (after trying more recent images) and I still have the issue. In BIOS, all drives are recognized, bootable discs work fine. I tried resetting the BIOS just in case to no avail. Also tried disconnecting all USB devices, no good. I can't even get Linux to load, so I am suspecting my SSD might be shot--but it shows fine in BIOS. I don't mind replacing the drive, but I want to be more certain that is the issue before I spend the money. Or would this possibly be a motherboard issue?

Fast Boot Causes Black Screen After Loading Desktop?

Sep 15, 2014

For a few days I have been having some problems with my computer. Whenever I shutdown properly and then start again, the Desktop loads fine and after a few seconds of coming to the desktop. I see a black screen in front of me, I try to press num lock on and off to see if the system froze, it indeed froze. I disabled fastboot, after that even if I start after shutdown, it boots fine.

If I restart, it boots fine. Not sure why as my system should be fully compatible with fast boot. Here is my system specs, everything is updated as of posting:

MSI Z87 - G43 Gaming Motherboard with latest BIOS
Sapphire TriX R9 290 OC
Samsung 250GB 840 EVO
8GB RAM

Windows 8 Stuck On Black Screen?

Apr 3, 2013

I was casually using my pc and it suddenly shutdown. I tried to restart it, but it's stuck on black screen. Here's the thing there was no windows logo or no bios or no nothing appeared on the screen. It just goes black even if I restart it a hundred times. I am sure the cables of the monitor are fine and I am also sure that there are signals coming from the pc.

P. S. I even ASSUMED that the pc must have switched on and typed password to login and waited enough to get it to sleep mode and then recover from there. But still no luck.

Maintenance :: Windows 8 Stuck On Attempting Repairs Screen?

Jul 31, 2013

I have a Toshiba laptop, it's less then a year old and came with Windows 8 pre-installed, so i don't have a disc. Last night i was watching a movie on it when it froze up, i had no choice but to force reboot as it was unresponsive but when it rebooted it when straight to diagnosing and attempting repairs! I left it over night to allow it to repair but it never made it past that screen.

It's less then a year old and it hadn't had a single issue up until last night? I've tried rebooting to watch for options watch for booting options but it doesn't give me any choices at all just goes straight to Diagnosing and attempting repairs!

Graphic Cards :: Updated To Windows 8.1 / Screen Stuck In Letter Box

Sep 15, 2014

To my own stupidity I decided to update my computer from Windows 8 to 8.1, every thing would be fine if not for the fact that my screen is now stuck as a letterbox.

The native for my monitor is 1920-1080 and was what I was running at pre-update, after restarting, my screen is confined to a letterbox setting. Changing the resolution does nothing, when looking for a solution I came across a post from this thread:

8.1 upgrade - generic video driver problem

I've got the same graphics card as the OP and have found the same events. My question is what did he mean when he said

"I deleted the AMD leaf-item (Control Panel, Display adapters, AMD Radeon HD 7650D)and rebooted the system." in post 3.

Did he go ahead and un-install it? Clarification on what he exactly done would be great.

btw, if I did go ahead and un-install my graphics card like the OP originally suggested, would it reinstall on restart?

Windows 8 Stuck At Black Screen (with Mouse Cursor) After Deleting Linux Partition

Aug 15, 2014

I have a problem in my dual boot machine. I decided to remove Linux mint 17 from my dual boot with windows 8.
I used easeus partition manager to delete the partitions associated (root, home and swap). Then I got unallocated space just before my windows partition. So I moved my windows partition to the extreme left possible. Then I merged this unallocated space with my second storage partition.

These steps required reboot (specifically the moving of windows partition). When I rebooted my PC I got an error that grub was not found. I realized that I had forgot to fix MBR and load windows boot loader. So I used windows 7 recovery disk (yes windows 7 as I don't have windows8 recovery or installation disk). I got a windows 7 style boot loader instead of windows 8's graphical one which has advanced recovery options built in. But I proceeded. Then eases did its job with the partitions. After a reboot now I am stuck at a black screen after entering my password with a movable mose cursor. I can only press Ctrl+alt+del. Selecting task manager from it does nothing.

Since I don't have windows 8 disks and windows 8 boot loader I am not able to refresh or reset my PC. Neither can I shift restart my PC to get advanced boot options. One more thing to note, that while entering password, I noticed that the lock screen and account pictures have changed to defaults of a freshly installed windows.

Computer Restarts And Stuck At Restart Screen

Jan 24, 2013

When my computer restarts, it seems to never end. I once waited 20 minutes for it to restart but it was still at the same screen. Now whenever it goes into restart, I just hold my power button until it shuts down. I don't think it's good for my laptop so I want to figure out a way to have a fast restart. I got this laptop 3 weeks ago and it always had this problem. My old laptop restarts in under 2 minutes.

Stuck With Only 4 Rows On Start Screen For 1920x1200

Feb 5, 2013

My problem is that no matter how hard I try I can't get more than 4 rows on my start page

I have installed Windows 8 on a PC with the following hardware:
nVidia graphics card and latest drivers.
A Dell 27" monitor running at 1920x1200
A secondary DVI to HDMI cable to a 54" Samsung TV (1920x1080) - used for Media Center

I have googled the web in vain and tried many solutions which involve changing registry keys or specifying the MonitorSize. I have also tried the Decor8 app but it limits me to 4 rows.

I have tried unplugging the TV and rebooted but this didn't work.

About the only interesting thing I can find is that if in my display settings I switch to 1080p I only get 3 rows, and if at 1200p I switch to portrait mode I then get more rows - but obviously this isn't particularly useful since my monitor can't pivot.

By comparison I have a VM at work running Windows 8 at 1920x1080 and it happily displays 6 rows - go figure.

Dell :: Windows 8.1 Stuck On Gray Wait Screen - Auto Repair And System Restore Won't Work

Jun 8, 2014

I have a Dell laptop Inspiron 15R 7537 that came with Windows 8. Yesterday I upgraded to Windows 8.1. Everything seemed to work fine after the upgrade. I shut down and re-booted several times with no issues. When I turned the computer on as usual today, I got the log in screen, then it briefly went to the desktop, then came a gray screen that blocks 99% of the desk top. This gray screen says "please wait" and has a cancel button at the bottom. It hangs forever and the cancel button doesn't work. It gives no other information.

I read several threads on the Microsoft Windows forum and this seems to be a common problem. How to boot using the Windows 8 recovery media disk that came with the Dell computer. I selected Troubleshoot, then Advanced Options, then Automatic Repair. I got a message that it couldn't do an automatic repair, so that didn't work. Next I tried System Restore, but I got a message that there were no restore points available from which to restore. Just to clarify - the Recovery Media Disk I have from Dell is for Windows 8 - not 8.1 - so maybe that's the problem.

The computer is totally worthless the way it is now, so unless there is some fix for the hanging gray screen in Windows 8.1, I would be happy just to reload the original Windows 8 Operating System. At least that worked.
