Have you installed Java? If you have 64-bit Windows 8 (typically if your computer came with 4 GB or more) make sure you end up with 64-bit Java (allows you to use more RAM than 32-bit).

 

Also from what I read somewhere about minecraft, I think that Java programs (like the launcher and minecraft) only run in the Win7 like "desktop", not in the Metro phone like big icon mode. I did run minecraft (not tekkit) in a 64-bit Windows 8.1 work computer (Lenovo all-in-one, after hours) just to see what it would do, and it worked even with Intel integrated graphics. Although, any other graphics (ATI or Nvidia) is very likely, much faster.

 

But I mostly run 64-bit Linux at home (on it now).

Digdug had it right. Please don't provide support in the wrong place, it just encourages people to throwup their posts anywhere.
