If Windows 8.1 is the originally installed OS and not an update you can try the following in order to resolve the issue.
Invoke System restore and use it to choose a restore point (perhaps a system checkpoint) dated before the issue began.
The issue you are seeing is frequently caused by a Microsoft Windows update.
Using system restore to attempt to resolve this will not cause you to lose any data. It is completely reversible and safe.
If the Windows 8.1 is installed as the result of a Windows update,then you will have to remove the update or use the recovery media to resolve the issue by reinstalling the original operating system.  I highly recommend saving all important data to an external storage device prior to doing that to avoid data loss.
