It is the hard drive that has faulted.
A corrupted install can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to repair it. The fact that we cannot get to the recovery window, confirms it is the hard drive that shorts out, and causes the computer to stall on startup.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the computer to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
