If you are going to send it back anyway, it might be worth doing the F9 reload... or if you can get it to boot in safe mode you can use Windows Refresh/reload (independent of Asus reload)

You might be able to see the error parameters in the Windows System log, if you can boot under SafeMode.

Did you work under the cover, put in new memory / disk? Something might not be seated well.

FYI, you should never power off a Windows machine with the power button - unless you set the power button to shutdown/sleep/hibernate - always use the Windows shutdown/reboot - give the machine time to sync the data to the disk before powering off.

You could build another boot drive, boot on a LiveDVD/usb drive, something to determine if it is a hardware problem or just a blown Windows installation.

At this point you could call the place you got it and see if they can help - or replace it - give them a chance to help you get it fixed before returning it.

By "bcod" do you mean BSOD, Blue screen of death? If you built a recover DVD set you could use that, or download a WIndows 8 iso and try to boot on it to do a Windows repair.

It's pretty unusual for this to happen, it is probably hardware if you didn't play around with the install - or powered it off too many times without letting the data sync to disk at shutdown causing corruption to system files.

Good news. Windows tried a disk repair, ran into too much uncorrectable corruption, and asked you if it could do an OS refresh, which was one of the options to try if you could have booted into Windows somehow.

Now would be a good time to create the recovery DVD / USB drive, or clone the drive to another drive as a backup.
