I have an ASUS G50VT laptop and I installed Windows 8 a week ago today. It had been running just as smoothly as Windows 7 had since I had installed it up until today. I was browsing the internet on amazon getting christmas ideas for my GF on google chrome when: my picture distorted and got all wavy flashing black and picture again for about 3 seconds and then it went black. I tried ctrl alt delete and nothing happened so i decided to restart my laptop.
I turned my laptop on and the republic of gamers boot screen loaded and the windows 8 four tiles boot screen acted perfectly normal(picture looks normal). After it did the windows 8 boot screen my screen went black again though. It does this every time. I get the windows log-in sound but that is it.
I called ASUS and they told me my motherboard wasn't compatible. I asked if they meant BIOS or drivers and they told me no, the motherboard. I think that is bogus. They said it could also be my graphics card. Microsoft told me that it is probably hardware. And it is no longer possible to get to safe mode or do a recovery unless the system BIOS calls for that screen. Mine won't. This is according to: http://www.techspot.com/news/48718-windows-8-removes-need-for-f8-key-advanced-boot-menu-redesigned.html
Is this article true? Is there any way for me to do a system restore in Windows 8 from the boot? Could it be my graphics card?
-I can load my BIOS utility screen and that screen is messed up. I have little white dots everywhere that are vibrating and moving in a wave pattern. The megatrends boot screen after I hit esc during boot does the same.
-I have already tried changing my boot priority to my cd/dvd drive with my recovery cd that came with my pc (doesn't work)
-I have tried booting my Dvd/CD drive by hitting esc during the boot up. (Doesn't work)
-I have tried to get to the Windows options screen using F8, F11 (for ASUS), and F12. Nothing happens
-Microsoft told me to hit: space, esc twice, shift + tab, and enter when i see the microsoft logo. Nothing Happens
-I am open to ANY ideas and would greatly appreciate the help.
