Check for any file system errors and bad sectors using Option #2 of:Use this command with Disk Check:

chkdsk C: /f /r
If your using a SSD, do not run the hard-drive tests on the SSD, check your SSD support page for appropriate testing tools.

Golden, I don't even get to the languages screen. crashes at 'starting windows'. AddRam, I'm using the original install disk for this machine. BlueRobot, I wondered about that. I'm trying a different hard drive now.

Sometimes updating the firmware helps, but we do see a steady stream of bad new SSD's.

You probably are aware that these will always be RMA'd by the manufacturer within the first year. Sometimes it's good to get them involved in testing to set that up.
