I've never really had problems with the game not starting up. All previous issues I've had with the game have had to do with in-game issues. So now I get the "Pvp.net kernal patcher is not responding"

Any suggestions?

This is a fairly new laptop that came with windows 8 installed. Its not some super awesome gaming rig, but i suspect its at least enough to run league

I'm sure it is capable if you purchased it recently, I have an HP Spectre XT Ultrabook running Windows 8 which is capable of playing on medium settings, but it would seem Windows 8 can be very finicky with league. I get the same error you are seeing from time to time on said machine and I can usually solve it by running the launcher as Administrator (Right click on icon run as administrator) In your league folder there is also a lol.launcher.admin exe file which you can make a shortcut to which will force run as admin when you open it. Hope this helps!

Make sure your computer is fully updated with .net framework 3.5/4 installed
