My acer aspire E1-531 windows 8 won't start and keeps continually looping with the message "Automatically preparing to repair" the rotating circle appears then the screen goes blank for awhile then a message pops up on screen to quick to read then goes back to the repair message help

Boot from Windows 8 CD, open command prompt and type: BootRec.exe /fixmbr

No CD then donload and burn an Iso of windows 8 from here

Sometimes it could be as simple as removing anything connected to a usb port, otherwise follow Fruit Bat /\0/\ 's excellent advice.
