I installed Windows 8 a couple of days ago on a laptop that has a Windows crashing history (service always said the problem was software, I think it's hardware, but that's a different topic). When waking up after sleeping times, the screen wouldn't display anything, I had to reboot using the power button multiple times. Finally, this morning when starting up only the manufacturer's logo showed up, Windows didn't start at all. Or at least that's what I saw on my display - nothing. Some normal sounds however could be heard from the laptop, smth was definitely running there. So I tried to reinstall Windows 8 again (all my data backed up, no problems there). I can choose a language and then press Install. Then it hangs forever on "Setup is starting". I burned a new DVD, same behavior. I don't know where to go from here... So if any ideas & time, please share.
