Windows 8 : Diagnosing and Resolving Startup Problems
When you power on a computer from a cold state, system configuration (power-on self-test) occurs first. During this phase, the firmware performs initial checks of hardware, verifies that required devices are present, and reads the system configuration settings from nonvolatile memory on the motherboard.

Most firmware interfaces allow you to create supervisor, user, and/or general passwords that are not accessible from the operating system. If a supervisor password is set, you need to provide the password before you can modify the firmware configuration.

Memory-related problems typically cause intermittent failures, and they are difficult to diagnose without a special diagnostic utility.
Using Windows 7 Hardware Troubleshooting Tools : Troubleshooting with Event Viewer, Troubleshooting Startup Failures with Startup Repair
A physically malfunctioning disk, motherboard, or RAM module can prevent a system from starting, but so can a faulty disk configuration. If you need to troubleshoot a system that does not start, you first need to rule out software configuration or data corruption errors on the disks as the cause.
