    Hi I need assistance, I turned on my computer this morning (its a samsung chronos 8 laptop) and the screen was all black and it had an option of boot menu and i am using windows 8.
    1. Windows Boot Manager
    2.Windows Boot Manager (again I don't know why)
    3. SATA CD : : TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-U633J
    and App Menu

    It will not boot up when i try to select the options of 1. Windows Boot Manager, 2. Windows Boot Manager, or 3. SATA CD : : TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-U633J. Every time i click "enter" on any of the options nothing happens. Could someone please help me?

    Some change(s) must have been made to the machine. What was installed or what settings changed the last time it was used?

    You should be able to restore the machine to the factory condition (the way it was when you bought it) by pressing F4 on the boot screen. Just make sure that all your backups are recent because all your files and programs will be lost. Your manual should tell you in more detail, but System Restore may also be available by that method if you want to try that.

    It would be a good idea to maintain a full, system backup so that you won't lose everything when something like this happens, or when the hard drive fails, which they all will do, unless you stop using them.

    I downloaded an automatic update for windows 8 and after that I was stuck in the Boot Menu/ App Setup. I tried pressing F4 like you had said but nothing happened. Also when I attempt to select one of the options like "Windows Boot Management" the screen will just blink. I am able to go into the App Menu and select "Setup" but im not sure how I can fix it from there.

    Not sure if win8 has a recovery console but sounds like Bootrec could fix that...
