Windows 8 pc stuck in blue screen boot loop. Please help!

I recently built a PC and all was running smooth until i upgraded to win 8. I started to get random blue screen errors and checked everything i knew to check. I decided to run Driver Verifier and my PC got stuck in an endless loop of blue screen errors. I cannot get into safe mode to stop Driver Verifier. Please help!!!

    I tried this but nothing happened. Would putting the win 8 disk in do anything?
  3. im sure it will boot but i dont think the windows 8 dvd will actually run any recovery tools. you have to create a recovery dvd/usb from inside windows first.

    sorry im not more helpful

    At this point i might just try and re-install win 8.

    i find that upgrades in any OS will inherit any issues from the previous OS and add some random and strange issues into the mix.

    if you have a spare HDD, install to that first, at least you then stand a chance of backing up important data before wiping the drive.

    i chose the advanced option, it said it will do a clean install and put all the old data in a folder called windows.old. Do you think that would take the problems with it?

    it should do, let us know how it goes.

    just be sure, once the install has finished, your entire directory structure will have been moved into windows.old, so space may become an issue... just delete the folder when your sure youve taken all the important data out... applications however, will need to be reinstalled.

    I put win 8 on last week so there wasn't anything important on the hard drive. I'll post again when it finished the installation

    in that case, removing both partitions and starting from scratch would have been better, still, not worth starting the setup process over again, just delete the old windows folder when/if windows boots

    Win 8 re-install worked, i'm installing the drivers now. :]
  11. Windows 8 re installed and running smoothly, so far no problems and all drivers are installed. I'm posting this from the PC that had the problem. Thanks for all the help!
