One of your usb ports is either damaged or has an object stuck in it causing a short. Unplug all usb devices and look at each port. Note if one looks slightly different from the others. There is a plastic tab that fits into usb plugs. If this tab is bent and touches the side of the port, it can cause the short. If this is the case you may be able to either clean out or bend back the bent tab.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This error code usually points to an installation of windows that has been corrupted. I'm assuming that you have no USB flash drives plugged into the laptop when booting, if so, remove these and try a reboot. Then try to boot to safe mode (f8) If this fails, boot from the CD drive by setting the DC boot option as 1st boot in the bios, put the windows installtion CD in the drive and go through the install proceedure, selecting the REPAIR option. If this fails, you will need to reinstall windows. To recover any lost files, after reinstalling windows, download a utility such as recover my files and set it to a format recovery to get any lost files back.
Sounds like the image doesn't have the right drive controller driver included. Could be because the image was created on a different laptop or could be the drive controller is configured differently. You can confirm this from the STOP error code on the blue screen
Go into the BIOS setup (probably F2 at boot) and see if the controller mode is set to AHCI. If so, set it to compatibility or combined(?) and try again.
Either way, if you've installed an image for the wrong hardware, you probably should do a remedial install. Boot from your Windows XP disc and follow the prompts as if you were doing a clean install until you get to the license agreement. At the next screen, it should show you any existing Windows installs and give you a new option to repair. Let this go - it won't touch any user files, just replace all the Windows files with those from the CD. Have your system drivers and service packs handy to tidy up when it's done.
The lock leds are used by some computer manufacturers as an error indicator. if you are unable to boot up and the lock LED's for caps and scroll are constantly flashing then it would indicate that your computer has most likely encountered a hardware error preventing it from loading. if you can add a comment with the manufacturer and model of your computer I can help you check the error
Like the Jonas brother said, it's difficult to diagnose this one without actually seeing it. That being said, you can always save some money by messing with it yourself. Personally, I'd probably look at a bootable CD next. You may have to get into your BIOS and change the boot order to reflect the CD first. If you can get a CD to boot, you've got a problem with your hard drive - although it's probably a software problem and not a hardware problem. In English, that means you'll have to reformat the hard drive and reload Windows. If you don't have a Windows disk, you might try loading a Linux OS. They are free (and far more stable too!) for download. If you need help with that, just post it on this thread and we'll walk you through it.
