It could be a bad hard drive. Some of them will get stuck if the HDD is bad. Try removing it and starting the system.

If anything, if its brand new just take it back and get a replacement.

try pressing f12 when prompted and pick your hard drive as boot device--if that doesnt work go in the bios and see if your hard drive is recognised if it is try loading the bios fail safe or default settings--sometimes done by pressing f5 but different bios may do it other way

I'd pull the hard drive, and try booting the system another way.... from a CD or bootable USB stick. If it boots another way, the problem could lie with the hard drive.
