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.
