New 8.1 HP laptop. Services all became disabled after a restart. I was adding some new apps and programs at the time.
I cannot do ANYTHING. It lets me start some services individually, but most give an error message saying "windows cannot start this service" I have no functionality, not even system restore. No internet. NOTHING AT ALL., except that it does reboot slowly to the "desktop". I know NOTHING about Windows 8.1
HINT: 1. I was messing around in "Msconfig" but dont remember what I did as I was trying to start in safe mode.
2. Also I am required to put a monstrous password in each restart. which was never required before,
3. It wont even allow me to create a recovery USB. Recovery partition does not work. Sys Restore is not available.
QUESTION IS: How can I get all my services turned on and enabled at one time instead of doing them individually?
How can I repair this PC?
I see why people did not like 8.1. Only using it for a week. It is crucial I get this up and running. I had just transferred all my files from my dying XP desktop and my entire business relies on this laptop now. I had successfully set up 2 wireless printers whith great ease earlier in the day. Do not know what happened.
I will be out all day but will try to follow EE and reply on my phone, ????
Thank you in advance
Thanks in advance.
