If it's brand new take it back to where you got it from! Does it have a warranty?

This issue can be caused by any of the following:

Corrupt boot files on the computer.
Settings for hard disk drive are not correct.
Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue.
Boot devices not set properly.
BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly.
Connections loose or disconnected.
Bad Hard disk drive or other bad hardware

Was the system built or bought from dealer

Issues from being assembled could be motherboard touching medal case or stand off on one of bus lines

Assembled
Memory not seated properly
Bios configuration not setup correctly
Cpu clock speed not registering properly

If system is under warrenty send back to manufacturer asap.

I've seen 3 mobos do the same thing you describe. 2 were FIC and don't remember make of the other. Flashing BIOS fixed one, but other 2 were beyond help. Wound up RMAing them to vendor. Both had bad BIOS CMOS chips.

Note: These were identified during bench testing prior to assembly in case. Only mobo, CPU (known good), RAM (known good) and onboard video (got a display) to contend with. Suggest you bench test to remove as many variables as possible.
