-Hey guys. So I unboxed my new desktop today and went to set all the peripherals up before booting up the computer for the first time. Unfortunately, I initially had trouble because upon booting up the computer, it would not read my monitor (using HDMI), Keyboard(Razer Lycosa/AZA USB Keyboard), or mouse(Razer Naga). Everything appeared connected and to not have moved during shipping. I also connected the monitor to my laptop via hdmi cable and it worked perfectly. Later I was able to get the desktop to recognize the keyboard and mouse. However I was forced to use an old VGA cable instead of HDMI for the monitor. When I booted the computer up again, it said that my Windows 8 installation was corrupted. (specifically a system32.exe file). I inserted the recovery disk and noticed that Cyberpower installed 2 of the same Windows 8 OS. Unfortunately neither of them were functional. The recovery disk was ineffective and I am not sure where to go from there. I really would like to see this PC work as I literally just unboxed it today....please help!
-Is there any way to uninstall and reinstall Windows 8 properly?
-How can I make sure I am running only one version of the OS?
-What can I do to make my monitor reads the connection to the desktop via HDMI cable?
