Win 8 Start Up System Config

Help please. Dont think this is Win 8 specific but it affects my Win 8 Acer but not my Win 7 laptop, In System Config there are three Start Up options, Normal, Diagnostic & Selective. My Win 8 PC will run in Selective only, always reverts to that if I select either of the others. All items are checked in Start Up & System. Have tried a few things to no avail like memory tests and sfc.

(On my Win 7 PC if I untick a Start Up item then it goes from Normal to Selective which seems reasonable? It returns to Normal when the item is rechecked.)

Any help much appreciated Thanks

Just a thought, if you bring up task manager then the start-up tab, check to see if any program is disabled. This might be why it is showing as Selective.
