Try a Hard Reset as follows.
Shut down the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery. Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds. Re-insert the battery, plug in the AC Adapter and see if the notebook will start.
If the above fails to help and as your notebook is only Three months old, you should contact HP and arrange to have the notebook repaired under warranty.
If you live in the US, contact HP Here.
