Dell Studio 1558 (almost new) don't boot into Windows 7

Specs: Windows7

When booting up my Dell Studio 1558 laptop running windows 7, as the computer goes through the startup procedure just before it should START WINDOWS 7 it hangs up and only shows a curser blinking in the upper left corner and it will not boot into windows.
F8 doesn’t boot it and F12 runs only pre-boost system assessment build 4124 (all shows OK ; it takes about 1 hour) but don’t continue when any key is pressed to Booting Diagnostic Utility partition. Advanced Boot Options Window doesn't show up as well.
It's not clear how to make Windows 7 work.

"Almost New"

It's under warranty, right? Why are you asking in a forum? Contact Dell.

I bought it in May on eBay but started using at the end of 2011 mostly watching movies using HDMI. It looks like the warranty was 3 months.
It stopped working when I watched a movie. What was strange that the battery light became white althought battery was charged and the computer worked with an adapter ( initially the light was off). Despite I left the computer on with the adapter the light disapeared only when I started Diagnostics with F12.
