Welcome to Mac-forums, BauerHaus.
If you have tried everything you say you did there isn't much left for you to try to get it to work. I think that perhaps the Archive and Install
imported in your new OS install a serious corruption that prevents it from working correctly.
The only thing left would be to zero all the data from your hard drive and try a reinstall (boot from the restore disk, go to the menubar and choose Disk Utility -> Erase tab - there should be something in the Security Options, I believe, about a long and deep erase of the hard drive) but that will obviously erase all your user files and settings.
If reinstalling the operating system this way doesn't fix anything, my guess is that your problem is indeed hardware related and nothing you can do with software could fix this problem.
I would then suggest you send it in for repairs, sadly enough.
