    If the disk utility is unable to fix the disk, then your SSD has gone bad.  This can happen with newer SSD's.  They aren't as roubust as traditional drives for now.  SSD's are either rock solid or troublesome within the first 6-8 months of use.

     

    Call AppleCare and get them to fix it.  It'll take sending or taking into an Apple Store or maybe just maybe they might send out another unit have you send that one back.

    I wish we had better news . . .

    Let us know how you make out there, OK?

    Just to let everybody know, I took it in. They first thought it was a software problem, but it ended up being a hardware problem. They had to delete everything because I didn't have an external hard drive. So if this happened to you, they do have a way to save your data, if you didn't use time machine. With my warranty, they said they could fix it, or give me a new one. (Same model) I'm definently going to use time machine now and have an external hard drive!!! Thanks again to those who helped!

    I got a new one instead of fixing it by the way

    I'm so glad you took it in . . . you would have spent days trying to deal with, to no avail.  When you get it all set up and working great, do make the first of regular back-ups, eh?
