    When I turned my computer on, it goes into automatic repair and then says your PC did not start correctly. I keep restarting it, but the same thing comes up. What do I do?

    The issue here is that your Windows 8's files are probably corrupted. Maybe a program tried to access it (OR) the PC gets force shutdown frequently.

    To fix that, you should insert the Windows 8 CD in your CD drive and boot from it. (If you dont have it - http://tiny.cc/xehl5y and burn it to a DVD)

    Then, you should boot through it. (Restart and press ANY key when told to do so)
    You will get a screen like this:

    Now, hit next and click "Repair Your PC"

    Wait till it completes. Cross your fingers and hope it fixes...

    If it doesn't, you should install a fresh Windows 8 installation.
    For tutorial, click - http://www.buildeasypc.com/sw/windows_8/install_windows_8.htm.

    But at step 7, click Upgrade instead.

    Will I lose the files in the computer if I reboot with a Windows dvd? I have photos in there that I don’t want to lose.

    You can give it a try. Nothing will be lost.
