ok on f12 menu if you select option 1 and press enter what happens

the problem as per my diagnosis is with a corruption in master boot record of hard drive

if we open the laptop to reseat the hard drive, the warrnaty would get void
as its within warranty, you can get the hard disc replaced within warranty cover
