Caps lock flashing indicates faulty memory - it's a POST (Power On Self Test) before BIOS executes. When memory is removed it should indicate "no memory". Carefully re-insert the RAM memory module, check the tiny contacts inside the connector on dust. Then try again.
If there are 2 memory banks (1 one the back, the other under keyboard) remove one RAM memory module.
If capslock keeps on flashing test it with another RAM module.

If the graphics card was intact, the external monitor test would have given you an image.
Unfortunately, this seems like a graphics card problem common to this manufacturer (google HP Compaq Notebook Graphics Problems).
This fault can be repaired only by specialist laptop repairers with specialist tools.
The repair is called Reballing the Ball Grid Array.
Reballing has a marginal success rate and even if successful, the fault can reoccur. A typical professional repair warranty would give you 3-6 months post-repair warranty.
Sometimes the surface of the graphics chip is too damaged to repair.
This repair can be expensive as it may involve several time and labour intensive rounds of disassembly, repair, reassembly and testing.
If you do opt for repair, ensure that the repairer is a specialist, properly equipped with an Infra Red Workstation, experienced in this specific type of repair, is willing to do a No-Fix-No-Fee Repair and offers a Repair Warranty.
If the laptop's warranty has expired and the repair cost seems high to you, it may be time to consider a new laptop.
Sorry for the bad news.
Hope this helps.

Hard drive has bad sectors. Before your replace your hard drive when getting this error, try this- Boot from a Windows XP CD and choose Repair at the first prompt to get the recovery console. Type "chkdsk c: /p/r" at the prompt. Repeat until there are no errors found. Exit and reboot. It worked for me.
