    It sounds hardware related however we would want to be sure.

    Try downloading Ubuntu onto a USB drive and booting off it in the Demo mode. If the issue persists it's an issue with the Hardware.

    Not quite the simple. You need to mount it onto the USB.

    I use a tool called Rufus. A quick google should find it.
