Brand new laptop is likely to have a warranty I would call the manufacturer and tell them what is happening.

You are probably having a problem with the security certificate for 'secure boot' being validated. Since it is new, I would return it for another. A new computer that has that problem probably has more.

The workaround is to turn off 'secure boot' but like I said, this is a warning that there are probably other problems in addition to this error.
