The laptop I got for Christmas stopped working last night. When I turned it on, the Power button's LED was on but the charger light was still on. The screen stayed black and I'm not able to turn it off, no matter how long I press or hold the power button. Sometimes while playing a game I could hear the fan blowing loudly and the computer getting pretty hot. Is there something wrong with the battery? And how do I fix it?

You should not be having problems like this with a new PC!
You paid for free HP Tech Support as part of the warranty coverage, so you might as well make use of it.
Unfortunately, we are NOT HP Tech Support and we have no way to diagnose or repair your PC, so while this PC is still under warranty, you should contact HP Customer Support directly to have them put you in touch with HP Technical Support to see what they can do about troubleshooting and repairing your machine remotely.
I did this recently and the HP Tech was able to remotely access my PC from the Internet to check out the problems.
If they are unable to fix your PC, then you need to explore what options you have to get it replaced under the warranty.

If you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html
NOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!
