    System requirements for Windows 8 are as follows:
    • CPU: - 1 gigahertz or faster 32-bit or 64-bit
    • RAM: - 1 GB (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
    • Hard disk space: - 16 GB available (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
    • Graphics device driver: - DirectX 9 with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
    • Multi-touch screen

    If your system provides the entire requirement then only all the functionality of the windows 8 will be work onto this system including the WLAN connection. Hence I think you need to check the entire system requirement and if your systems fulfill this entire requirement then try to establish the connectivity with the hidden SSID.

    You need to also check the wireless connectivity driver of the system. If the driver not working properly then you need to reinstall this wireless driver and see that it will be helpful to make connection with hidden SSID or not. If not then reinstall supported driver onto it. it fixes your connectivity problem.

    When the wireless connection you have trouble connecting to hidden SSID then try to fix this issue using the manual connection. If you have problem with this connection, find out that the laptop will show the connection or not. If not then try to enable the connection using the router connection. Try to switch on the router and see that it will be effective to your system connection or not. This is the basic way that works to find out that the problem is in the router or not.
