Windows 7: Windows 7 Wont boot - Showing recovery box - Administrator X: CMD

Then look at the Advanced optinon menu to see if there are hardware diagnostics to check the hardware.

You can also Refresh Windows 8 which will reinstall the OS while keeping all data, programs and settings in place. You may be prompted for the Win8 DVD however.

Another option if this is a factory OEM build is to run Reset Windows 8 which draws on the Recovery partition to recover the OS to factory condition. You can first rescue your files using Paragon Rescue Kit Free Edition 11.0 Free
