Windows 8 and 8.1 won't start-up on my Dell laptop despite several re-installations, why?

I've a Dell Inspiron N4050 on which I've installed Windows 8 and 8.1 thrice, but it won't work alright. Most of the times the lockup screen doesn't appear at all, a black blank screen appears and the Windows won't resume any more beyond that. Is it a hardware specific issue?

    The problem is with Windows 8 and 8.1 only. Windows 7 and other Operating Systems work perfectly and no hardware problem exists. I think there is some hardware compatibility issue between the Dell hardware on my laptop and the Windows 8 environment.
