Win 8.1 - Cannot Force Hybrid Shutdown / Fast Startup

Jan 23, 2014

On Acer 3820TG (Win 8.1) I am trying to force system to use hybrid shutdown/fast startup function. I've already tried all steps from this topic: Fast Startup - Force Use by All Users in Windows 8 but no success - system performs full shutdown. The only solution that works for me is shutting down with command "shutdown.exe /s /hybrid /t 0". Then system shuts down in ~5 sec and starts in ~15 s.

If you shut down a computer from the right-click-left-bottom-corner menu in desktop mode, then click Shutdown -> system performs full shutdown. If you click Shutdown in charms bar -> system performs hybrid shutdown. Now my PC is starting in 8s, laptop in 15s.

Hybrid (fast Startup) Shutdown Not Working

Oct 18, 2012

I've had problems since yesterday regarding the hybrid (fast startup) shutdown.

The machine just won't do it, instead it does a full shutdown. I have the option thickened under power options but it still doesn't work.

The only software change was running a portable version of 00 Defrag 16. I used a portable version because installing it would cause the problem I described above (maybe something about reg files?). I've used the portable version a few days ago but just to scan the drive, yesterday I started to defragment the drive and then the problem surfaced.


Running the shutdown -s -hybrid -t -f 0 does a full shutdown too.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8.1 Fast Startup Stopped Working - Critical Shutdown Error

Mar 29, 2014

Over the last few days I built a new PC with ASUS A87 Pro MB, no PCIe cards, and Samsung ssd 840 Pro boot drive. Lots of changes on a daily basis. For a while, the FAST STARTUP hybrid boot was working. Then it stopped, and I'm trying to debug it.

When PAST STARTUP is enabled in power options, I get a repeatable Critical Error - Windows did not shut down properly, and the startup time is as long as it would be without FAST STARTUP enabled. There are no BSODS, and no apparent harm from the Critical Shutdown error.

Deleted Fast Boot Options?

Sep 15, 2014

I accidentally deleted my Fast Boot boot options and when I enable it my laptop restarts and shows the BIOS, without booting into my system(s). However, when I enable CSM boot it gives me option of booting into my systems. I want to restore my Fast Boot options so my laptop boots up faster and basically because my laptop is made for Fast Boot.

Random Disappearance Of Hibernation Option

Jun 26, 2013

I have a random/strange thing happening on my Windows 8 Pro (x64). I have set up the system settings so that when I close the lid my laptop goes to hibernation. However, when I wake up my laptop from hibernation, from time to time, hibernation option disappears from system settings (I attached to screenshots). And, to get it back, I need to restart the laptop. This does not happen all the time. But when it happens, I don't get any hibernation option. As a result, closing the lid puts the laptop into sleep rather than hibernation and that is not very convenient when I want to leave fast. To get hibernation option back I need to restart my laptop.

Windows To Go - No Fast Boot Option?

Jun 18, 2014

Windows to go doesn't seem to have a Fast boot option -- Not a real issue since I use an SSD for this but just curious. I suppose if Windows to Go is being used on different computers and the idea is to use the external device totally then it obviously doesn't make sense to store a file on the Host PC's HDD.

Anyway two screenshots -- you can see the Windows to Go doesn't have a fast boot option. Ist screenshot is from Windows to Go -- both running Windows 8.1 enterprise update 1 x-64 on REAL (not Virtual) Machines.

Maintenance :: Troubleshoot Option Under Advanced Startup Option Missing

Oct 23, 2013

The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. System is a new Dell Latitude 10 ST2 Tablet running Windows 8. Have access to 9 other identical tablets, all configured the same and they all have the Troubleshoot Option. Have tried multiple methods of getting to "Advanced Startup" display (including Safe mode, 'shutdown /r /o', etc.), but all result in only having the 'Continue', 'Use a Device', and 'Turn Off your PC' options - No Troubleshoot. Other than missing this icon, system is working fine. Shy of wiping the disk and starting over.

How To Enter BIOS When Fast Startup Is Turned On

Jul 31, 2014

I have a desktop with Windows 8 upgraded to 8.1, I can enter the BIOS setup by pressing the DEL key only when the preceding shutdown is a complete shutdown (shutdown with fast startup turned off).

If the desktop is shutdown with fast startup turned on (incomplete shutdown), and Windows cannot be loaded during the subsequent starting. How can I enter the BIOS to select to boot from a USB stick?

Win 8.1 - System Time Incorrect When Fast Startup Turned On

Jan 15, 2014

Windows 8.1 ... Noticed shortly after upgrading the Asus VivoTab Smart to Windows 8.1 (from Windows 8) -- that sometimes the system's date and time will be incorrect after a shut-down, turn on cycle. Sometimes the clock is as fast as three hours, but others much longer. Interestingly, if you go into PC Settings > Time & Settings and then toggle off the "Set time automatically" option, and then toggle it back on, the time and date are immediately corrected. However, the time would again be wrong after a shutdown. If the tablet is restarted, though, the time is correct again.

THE SYSTEM: Windows 8.1 (upgraded from Windows Store). Intel Atom processor.


1. Stopped the Windows Time service, registered it again and restated it. The issue remained. I entered the desktop and clicked on the time in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. From here I confirmed the time zone was correct and changed the date and time. That fixes the problem during the current session, but the time/date are again wrong on reboot.

2. Tried Safe Mode. In Safe Mode, the time is correct and stays correct.

3. Tried Clean Boot. In Clean Boot, with all non-Microsoft services disables, the issue returns and the time is wrong again.

THE BREAKTHROUGH THAT BEGS FOR AN ANSWER: While reading this thread, I read up on Windows 8's Fast Startup. Just on a lark, I went into the Power settings area of the Control Panel and turned off Fast Startup. Now the clock is correct. There's a downside , of course, to this in that shutdown and startup is notably slower.

The tablet now keeps perfect time -- but cannot have Fast Startup - which is a bummer for a tablet.

1. Is this is hardware issue? Asus is offering an RMA -- but hate to add to a landfill when this is fixable with software.
2. Is there a way to check the BIOS clock on a Windows 8.1 tablet ? I believe it's a UEFI system....
3. Is there a way to fix this so fast startup can be used -- and have correct time?
4. Is this a known issue?
5. Is there a way to make sure the Windows Time service is activated in a Fast Startup.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 With Fast Startup Enabled Hangs Occasionally?

Oct 24, 2013

I'm not sure what's exactly the problem but sometimes Windows 8.1 hangs at the Windows logo at boot with Fast Startup enabled on a mSATA SSD with my Lenovo Y570 laptop.

My laptop does not support Secure Boot/GPT or UEFI, so I'm really unsure if that's the problem.

Once I disable Fast Startup the boot process never hangs ever but it makes my bootup time slightly slower.

Maintenance :: WinKey X Shutdown Options Not Operating Correctly?

May 26, 2014

I have a new ASUS ET2702IGTH with 8 to 8.1.1. I have noticed some strange behavior when using the Winkey+X menu to shutdown or sleep the unit. If I use the power button on the Start Page, it operates correctly.

After testing I have realized however the system is requested to enter sleep results in a Shutdown, after about 2 or 3 minutes, when an APP such as Bing Weather is open. This means open with an icon on the Taskbar . If it is only partially open, with the Task Manger showing the app, the system will not shutdown or sleep.

But using the Winkey menu, a Shutdown results in a shutdown, but takes several minutes. If I select Sleep, the unit shuts down. Since it appears there must be some difference in the command issued by the different power buttons, how to compare the two options to see what might be going on?

I do not know if this situation might introduce some type of problem on a system, but since the behavior is different, the system might be left in an unusual condition.

I have not tried the options from the Charms bar. McAfee is currently on this system since it was part of the bloatware. Possibly its behavior is different for the two shutdown options.

Remove Boot Options From Advanced Startup?

Jan 18, 2014

I have three options in the Advanced Startup - Use a device menu that I believe are from the previous owner of this Surface Pro. I have ubuntu, linuxmint, and BestCrypt Volume Encryption. How can I remove those options since they do not apply to anything on this device?

I looked in msconfig and nothing but the normal Windows 8 is listed under the boot tab. Also only have the Windows 8 install listed when I run bcdedit.

Unable To Enter Advanced Startup Options

Jul 19, 2013

I have a multiboot scenario set up on my laptop, and I'm using the Windows 8 Graphical Bootloader to manage my other operating systems. I need to install two programs, GBridge, and Synaptics Touchpad Installer, and both use unsigned drivers. It seems Windows 8 doesn't ask for confirmation to install unsigned drivers like previous versions of Windows, it just outright denies them without user consent.

As a solution, I figured I would go to advanced startup options and disable driver signature enforcement like I did *successfully* for my Windows 8 desktop, but after it reboots to enter advanced startup mode, it just goes straight into Windows! No matter how many times I tell it to enter advanced startup mode, it refuses to do it. I even tried removing all my multiboot options and it still goes straight into Windows without asking me what I want to do.

For the record, I've tried it these ways:

Charms Menu -> Settings -> Change PC Settings -> General -> (Advanced Startup Options) -> Reboot Now -> Troubleshoot -> Advanced Options -> Startup Settings -> Restart (What a pain in the ass to have to navigate all this crap btw)
Choose an OS -> Other Options -> Advanced Startup Options
From legacy boot menu -> F8 -> Advanced Startup Options

All these attempts and methods achieve the same result: a normal reboot without giving the options of what advanced startup I want.

Windows 8.1 Not Booting - Reset Button Takes To Startup Repair Options

Sep 28, 2013

I just recently installed 8.1 on my desktop. These are the specs:

ASUS M5A97 mobo
AMD phenom II X4 965 BE stock clocks
crossfire HD 7770's
8gb DDR3
500 tv sata internal hard drive 7200rpm.
500w psu.

The problem is, I'm not able to boot up my PC. When I boot, I get the Berta fish logo, with a white dash in the upper left corner. It will stay there and load for as long as I let it. If I hit my reset button then it will take me to the startup repair options. Booting into safe mode from there yields the same result. The only way I've managed to fix it was either a refresh or a system restore.

Dell :: Windows 8 - No Menu In Advanced Options (startup Settings) After Restart

May 8, 2014

I've got LATITUDE E7440 laptop with Win 8 Pro preinstalled. I need to disable driver signature enforcement in advanced options. I've read about how to do it in many places, but basically.. when I go to Troubleshoot -> Advanced options -> Startup SettingsĀ 

And I push restart, menu for type of booting (below) doesn't appear. It just restarts as usual. Can I get to this menu in another way or why it doesn't appear?

I've got 4 laptops and this menu appeared only on one of them after restart. I've even reset it to its factory settings, but it didn't work out for me.

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8 Flickering At Startup And Shutdown - ATI 5470

Jun 21, 2013

Recently I updated my hp dv6 3122sl to Windows 8. Now, obviously the drivers provided by microsoft didn't work, so I installed the softpaq by hp in this order ....

1. sp52351 for intel hd graphics (1st gen)
2. sp50640 for my ati radeon 5470 (it's important to set compatibility with windows 7 for this one) and now the switching is working fine.

However there's a big big problem. The screen flickers 3-4 times at startup and shutdown if I enable fastboot from the control panel, and it's so annoying that I disabled it, sadly.

I tried to update drivers, using custom drivers by leshcat and later official drivers by ati (13.1 for example, which I installed over the hp ones), and the they -more or less- worked, because I could use the fastboot smoothly... but my pc had several thermal shutdowns since I installed other drivers! So I switched back to the old sp52351 and sp50640.

There it is my question: (Maybe with intel+ati 5470) have flickers at startup and shutdowns?If yes, any way to update drivers without make my laptop blow up?

No UEFI Tile And No Option / Function Key For BIOS At Startup

Aug 6, 2013

I am trying to boot from USB in order to start using Ubuntu but my problem is that when I go to the advanced settings - troubleshoot - there is no UEFI Firmware Settings, which, from what I have gathered is necessary to be able to boot Ubuntu from my USB flash drive. So far the solution that most people have is that there is no UEFI on that particular computer/type of windows 8, and on the startup screen to press f2, f11, esc, etc but there is no indicator as to what key is is on the ACER splash screen, similar to this. scn101.jpg

Therefor, I cannot get into BIOS?

I recently purchased an Asus N56VJ with Windows 8 pre-installed. At first I was trying to downgrade to Windows 7, but could not get past the windows splash screen trying to do a clean install . Anyway, while I was trying to figure out how to install windows 7, I was messing around in the bios. I decided to just stick with the Windows 8, but my bios is screwed up. I do not have any boot configuration options anymore. I tried to flash my bios, but the bios was still the same. I did a full reset on my machine, and still no change in the bios. Is there any way to get my bios options back to the factory settings with all the options?

How To Put Laptop Into Hibernation

Sep 15, 2011

One thing I noticed about Windows 8 is that there doesn't seem to be an obvious way to put my laptop into hibernation. For clarification, this means that that everything that is loaded into the RAM is written to a file on the HDD. The device then fully powers down. Upon pressing the power button again, the device will resume, similar to the way it does in sleep mode, but without have the power drain associated with storing the windows session in the volatile memory.

I went into the power settings and enabled hybrid sleep for both plugged in and on battery, but when I clicking on the power option in settings (by using the shortcut Win + I or by moving your mouse to the bottom left corner of the screen) there is only an option to put it into sleep mode. I know that it isn't doing hibernation because when it goes into hibernation, you must press the power button to bring it out of hibernation. I want it this way to reduce battery drain and to prevent accidental resuming if the laptop somehow opens while in my backpack...

Windows 8 Went Down When Resuming From Hibernation

Aug 26, 2013

Windows 8 is clean-installed on a new primary partition of a harddisk. All device-drivers came from DVD Windows 8 Setup, there is no any driver updated yet.

Windows 8 can go hibernation but can't resume from the hibernation. The Windows 8 logo dissappeared fast and the laptop immediatelly went off, I didn't see any blue screen.

Here I attached some files that are collected by SF_Diagnostics_Tool.

MEMTEST86 reported no error. BIOS has been updated to latest version (before ver.3303, after ver.3315).
