I have been experiencing an odd issue. When my Windows 8 PC starts up, it will show the Windows panes without the loading animation and remain stuck there indefinitely.
I have a strong feeling that this has to do with Windows 8 and it's kernel hibernation... The PC experiences no difficulty starting from cold boot (reset when stuck, or restart, or full shut-down). It will only hang from a normal startup... (Kernel in hibernation, load drivers and user profile only). This is rendering Windows 8 quick-boot useless for me.
This issue began a few months ago and is one of the main reasons that I chose to perform a fresh (clean) installation. My previous installation was an upgrade over Windows 7.
Things I have done to attempt to resolve the issue.
- Update the UEFI (BIOS).
- Check my boards power settings.
- Reinstall Windows
I was just wondering if anyone else has been experiencing similar issues?
There is one other, minor, issue that I have been having recently... My Netflix app has been failing to work... I don't have the exact error ATM... When watching Netflix in the desktop environment (IE and Chrome) Silverlight will crash after about 30-60 seconds of playback.
Other than that, I have been having no issues whatsoever with my installation.
I will let you all know if I find anything else out or figure out what is causing these issues.
