Sony Vaio STAMINA/SPEED switch not working correctly

\015 I recently acquired a Sony VGN-Z46GD (less than 2 weeks old). The STAMINA/SPEED switch is not working right. Whenever i switch it to STAMINA mode, it restarts over and over again, showing the blue screen every time. So I'm stuck in the SPEED mode. It also restarts when i close the lid. I already configured it to "do nothing when the lid is closed". I want to see if there's a solution before I use the warranty. Help anyone?\015
