so i got windows 8 on my laptop. One day, when i just started it up, acer logo appearing as usual, but then it go to automatic repair. Automatic repair fails and i get an error code 0xc0000185, pressed f8 to go to startup options, which also fails and gives the same error code. I have a windows 8 installation disc, so i tried to boot into it, but all i get is after it shows the windows 8 logo, the screen goes black and the system just hangs there..... Any help??

 From what I read on the MS web site, this error appears to be caused by bad sectors on your hard drive.  Run chkdsk and let it scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors.

 

 If you can't get into a working Windows 8 mode, you can make a repair drive that you can boot from by going to the Recovery applet of the Control Panel.  This creates a bootable flash drive.  Be aware that it will erase anything that's on the flash drive.

 

Good luck.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

 Go into the BIOS setup and change the boot order so that it tries to boot from USB devices first.

 

Good luck.
