Acer aspire 3680 - new out of box won't boot

Tried to start my acer aspire 3680 for the first time, it was the very first start, nothing's even been installed yet. It started to boot up, and then went to the blue screen of death - something about shutting off the system to avoid further damage. Now it won't boot again. I've tried removing the battery and just using the ac adapter. The battery lights up, the computer lights up when power is on, and the hard drive does sound like its spinning, the cd drive will open, but nothing else happens when you push the power button.

The motherboard is dead. if its new within 12 moths ring up acer and book it in for repair if its outside of warranty then you will need to buy a replacement from an online auction place or a computer repair shop.

Unable to recover system

see if your system restore is in my computer c:\ drive
should be there it will probably say acer on the folder

restart while in restart press F7 then when options appear select boot with cd or cd/dvd
then enter this will start the system with the cd
if it does'nt start the win setup then restart might need to try a couple times
if setup still does'nt start then make sure the cd is the right recovery disk

Acer Aspire 3690-continuously reboots then checks harddisk several times, every time I start this Laptop

First remove any new, or unnecessary hardware, extra mouse / keyboard / monitors / dongles / and even the battery.

Try again, and if possible, get into 'safe mode' by pressing F8.

If it is stable in safe mode, you at least can try removing devices under, START / CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE / DEVICE MANAGER. Then whilst disabling various devices, try booting again into normal mode, and obtain a new, AND correct driver for whatever piece of hardware was deemed to be at fault.
