It is a hardware error. Something got loose or damaged in the shipping would be my guess.

Most likely the hard drive. But it could be one of the boards in there.

You might want to open it up and see if you can find anything loose or disconnected.

Otherwise you really need to get a professional copy repair person there to see exactly what is wrong and what it would take to fix it.
