The problem can be caused by some reason and the reason is hardware related so if the laptop is under warranty then I will suggest you to replace it without taking any head ache anyway otherwise please check the causes and if possible do the things I suggest or take help from any friend or neighbor.

1.This can happen due to defective ram or memory modules.

In this case you have to remove the rams from the laptop and clean the copper contacts of the ram with a pencil eraser then reseat them and check the issue.

2.If the issue persist then the problem seems to be severe as the mother board or main board of the laptop seems to be defective.

In this case you have repair the mother board or update the BIOS of the mother board which can only done in a service center.
