Are you installing from a cd/DVD? Since the program has some corrupted files from the interrupted install you will need to start over. Have the Win8 disc in the tray and restart the computer. Just follow the instructions to restart from the DVD. The program needs to get ALL the files onto your hard drive for it to finish. Hope this helps you.

Windows start up file corrupted. If you cannot access it through safe mode, you will need to reinstall or do a repair install of windows. As this netbook has no DVD drive ( as far as I can recall), you will need to EITHER boot from an external USB DVD Rom drive, OR if you have not got one of these, then you will need to go onto another computer, download this:

ACER LAPTOP NOT STARTING


Try to reinstall windows overwriting the previous installation so that all your data, files and programs will not be deleted. If you have your windows installation cd, insert it to the cd/dvd drive and start/restart your laptop. It then detects the installer and scans your computer. Just follow the on-screen instructions. But during setup, do not choose the "Repair Mode" instead choose "New Install". Now when attempting to install, then system will detect your previous windows installation so there highlight (using the arrow keys) choose "Repair Previous Installation". When you do this, all windows system files will be replaced but all programs and personal files will be in tact.

Cannot start up my laptop since in done an update


Try booting into "Last known good configuration" it is on the same screen as Safe Mode, if that does not work, you can try to run CHKDSK /r from the windows install CD, just choose "Repair" in the option, if this does not work I suggest removing that hard drive and slaving it into another computer to get your data off and then reload Windows onto it. It is missing a .dll

Are you able to start the computer in safe mode?
Try starting the computer into safe mode by following the instructions found here.
If the computer loads in safe mode, then you can try disabling some startup programs by reading the instructions found here and restarting your computer. If this fails to fix it, you'll probably need to reinstall windows.

Theres no display on screen


by shutting the screen you have activated power saving followed by hibernation.when you lift screen and press power a screen appears telling you what programs are currently running and your icon to enter.by removing battery you have (computer term) illegally shut down,possibly with programs running,which incidently is a good way to loose sys32. which would require a repair or install.
Not ur case as of yet.restart ur pc and press f 8 about 4 seconds later .black screen with options appear ,navigate to start windows with last good configuration.windows will restart with last good settings .
if you choose to go asleep whilst a program is running you can configure windows not to go into power save mode or hibernation,turn off hd,turn off pc etc .
if you right click mouse in any space on desktop,select properties,screensaver,power.....you can change settings there to suit.
