Windows 8 won’t shut down

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

I have upgraded my Windows 7 to Windows 8, at first it was running smoothly but when I tried to shut down, it won't turn off.

I waited about  half an hour but it doesn't turn off. So I forcibly turned it off.

But when I turn it on again it shows a BSD.

I rather go back to Windows 7.

And please share an idea what is that problem

There upon reviewing your question the problem might be the upgrade you did.

Maybe you should do a fresh copy installation of Windows 8.

I also suspected that the reason why you get a blue screen is because maybe because of the upgrade you got a driver issue. My suggestion is not upgraded. Do a fresh OS installation.

Have a nice day!
