    hi all,

    I've an Advemt Tarina that after login gives a black screen.

    Ctrl + alt + del, selecting task manager does nothing. Eventually got into some options after disabling secure boot and booted from
    A w8 recovery pen drive I had for an other pc - but any option selected just gave a bsod and returned me back to the same menu.

    I can't boot to safe mode (like all other versions of windows).

    Thinking an scandisk /sfc will fix this but am struggling to work out how to get into windows.

    F8 doesn't respond... F7 allows me to enter boot manager.... but that's it.

    Running W8/8.1 64 bit

    Any help appreciated


    TIA


    Gerald

    after restoring back to previous version of windows, it turns out issue was caused by w10 upgrade. W10 now active and laptop user can now login
