I have a 6 year old Acer Aspire M Series desktop bought 2007 I have never had a problem changing the OS before W8 was fine but the W8.1 update is where the problem is. After install looks ok until I power down on reboot W8 flash screen shows then the LED'S on the keyboard and mouse go out the computer freezes I have to do manual shut down then reboot W8.1 reboots, but every time you have to go through this repeat process, it will not boot first time.

It was the on-board graphics changed to a separate graphic card.
