From "on" button to black screen w/blinking hour glass in center of screen. Will not boot

After an attempt to reset to factory, on restart I have a black screen with a small square in the center which has a  blinking hour glass in it. Boot-up will not proceed beyond that point.

Hi
First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.

Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat

AND/OR - Power on your PC, press Esc (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.
Choose System Tests (Fast Test does a 4 minute hardware check).
