Boot Error/Black Screen

Hi,
I just turned on my computer today and I got a black screen. The startup logo came on and everything and after that just a black screen no login screen or nothing. I don't know how to get into safe mode on the windows 8 (which is the system i have). Please tell me that. I got an error screen once but after when i tryed to get that error screen back it didnt come on. It said something about a boot file missing. I havn't downloaded anything on my computer for the past 2-3 weeks. Yesterday i used my computer and it was running smoothly but today it stopped. Yesterday i was using the internet and play call of duty black ops 2. Thanks for all the help!!!
Specs:
System: Windows 8
Cpu: intel core 2 duo e8400
Gpu: geforce gtx 660
Mobo: asus b5q-e
Ram: 2x2gb ram

  1. Best answer
    Power your system on and then turn it off in the middle of Windows' bootup. Do that a couple times in a row and eventually startup repair will load. Let that run and see what happens.
  2. The windows bootup doesnt actully come on. I'm sorry i think i said that incorrectly. It only gives me the option to run BIOS setup and thats it. Im sorry for the misunderstanding. And also i run Windows 8 so i dont think startup repair will happen. Thank You! Quick reply please as i have to do some work on my computer. Thank You!

  4. Startup repair will happen if you follow the instructions I wrote, as that's how you get to startup repair in 8. Do you not even get the little circle-thing on the screen at all, though?
  5. No i dont. The windows symbol does not come on. After the BIOS setup its a black screen
  6. Do you see the hard drive listed in the BIOS? If so--can you access it via a Linux live CD?
  7. I do see my hard drive i actully have two external and internal and i see both of them. But i do not know what you mean buy Linux Live CD. My error code for the error i got is 0xc000014c. Thanks.
  8. I mean if you download a Linux distribution CD that will run Linux off the CD, can you see the contents of your hard drives?
