My computer boots up to this blue screen that gives me this error message. Gives me the option to press Enter but the screen just flashes and gives me the same error with File:\WINDOWS\system32\winload.efi

Cannot access Startup settings.

Can only press escape for UEFI firmware settings. Any help would be great.

Hi

 

That error message is usually caused by errors in the Boot Configuration Data or simply BCD. I would do a automatic repair using either installation CD/USB or "System Repair Disc". Do you have the "Windows 8" installation disc in hand ?. If not do you have another system with "Windows 8" as OS ?.

I don't have the disc. My friend has a Windows 8 computer. 

 

You can create a "Recovery Drive ( USB )" or "System Repair Disc ( CD )"  from your friend's machine to fix your system. To this work, both of your OS should be the same. If your machine is installed with Windows 8 64 bit , then your friend's machine should be the same. A repair disc created from Windows 8.1 may not work with Windows 8.0.

 

Please follow instructions from the below link to create the "Recovery Drive".

After successful creation, boot from the disc and run "Automatic Repair".

Hi

 

Please try manually rebuilding BCD.

 

1. Open Command Prompt from Recovery Drive.

2. Type bootrec /rebuildbcd and press "Enter". 

 

     If you see :

 

    Scanning all disks for Windows installations.

  Please wait, since this may take a while...

  Successfully scanned Windows installations.
  Total identified Windows installations: 1
  [1] D:\Windows
  Add installation to boot list? Yes<Y>/No<N>/All<A>:

 

Press "Y" to confirm.

 

3. Reboot the system and check whether it boots. If not, run "Automatic Repair" 2-3 times continuously. If nothing helps you may need to "Refresh" or "Reset" PC.

Looks like "C" drive is corrupted. There is also a possibility for hard drive might be faulty. What is the make and model of your laptop ? (some laps may came with built in diagnostics tests ).
