Unfortunately reboot configuration is not the answer as it seems to be a processing problem associated with the hard ware. Some you win some you lose. One week old and on its way back.Guess hard ware problems can not be resolved on line
Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.
It could be windows / recovery software issue and/or hardware issue. Since it's a new computer, they should replace it for you. I'm really sorry about the (hardware) issue, but if you need anything else, please let me know any time. Thank you for the update.
