For about a week now I have been unable to use my laptop as Windows 7 fails to boot. No software was installed or removed prior to the failure, and no hardware has been changed. It was shut down normally one evening and would not work the next day.
Safe mode and last known configuration both result in a momentary Blue Screen and the machine starting over. The computer did not come with Windows, so there is no factory reset option. I did not have backup, but do not mind any data loss as it is a new computer without any files of value.
Only today was I able to actually access startup repair after changing the setting in BIOS from AHCI to IDE. (Don't get me wrong, I'm completely clueless, I just followed advice from a thread somewhere online.)
Startup repair is not able to fix my problem automatically, and it gives me these details.
Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21199648

Problem Signature 06: 3
Problem Signature 07: CorruptVolume
OS version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1

Any ideas? Is it my HDD?
The computer was bought less than two months ago and is covered by warranty.
Any and all help is appreciated. I am close to calling the manufacturer for warranty service but want to see if anyone here has an opinion/advice.
