Is Windows 8 installed on the machine? When it boots, I believe there is an option for advanced boot options, one of which is a system re-install. Can't remember how to get into it though. :(

yeah it does have those reset/refresh options except they are not working, it throws an error everytime i try them, that's also partly why I wanted to reinstall it...guess I am out of luck? might have to just get a separate windows 8 dvd and install a fresh copy?

hi, when you are improper shutdown, could you into the screen and one item show Troubleshooting, i think it can be reinstall OS or find the setting in the system, it can be reinstall OS.

yeah none of those settings work, they all say some error and tells me restarting may help...but it doesn't. I'll post a pic when I get home

Windows may be hibernating and not actually off before you boot to those options... Pull the battery first...

Yeah, I tried the "refresh" option in settings.
All it did was mess up everything, it states "all your files, apps, and files will stay intact"
No such luck there, even all the "Asus drivers" was removed.
I'm very disappointed with W8 on my G75, so I'm back with W7 for now.
I'm going to stay with W7 for now till the bugs are worked out!
The OS is too new, and still very "buggy"!
