I performed a factory restore from the internal restore utility and partition. Everything went perfectly until the final reboot. Now the laptop is stuck at boot-up: first the HP logo appears, then the "circling balls" appear for a few seconds, then the PC resets, screen goes blank for a few seconds, and the loop starts again.
