Laptop has no picture and caps lock button is flashing

Laptop was frozen, so I pressed the off button until it went off and when I turned it back on, it never went to the screen asking if you wanted to start in safe mode etc... It just sits there with a blank screen and the caps lock button is flashing

Testimonial: "I tried this, but no such luck. I have found out that the one blink on the caps lock means a bad CPU problem. Think I am in trouble."

    I have also tried this for my problem but it does nothing. Other suggestions have aimed at starting the laptop in safe mode, however, this is impossible as I only get a blank screen strat from turning it on.

SOURCE: Can't get my laptop out of hibernate/standby mode. Need help

Try removing the battery and all pwer from the computer.  This will kill the hibernation process.  Put the battery back in, with outlet power if you desire.  Then try to start the laptop in safe mode.  (Everything will be very big)  Go to the start menu, accessories, system tools, and stystem restore.  Go through the process of restoring the computer any time before you tried installing the update! Then it will automatically restart in normal mode and you should have your old internet explorer back and it SHOULD start up normally!  Hope this helps! :)

SOURCE: my laptop power button keeps flashing on and off

This is a first step, a bit of magic that frequently works.

Try a Hard Reset according to HP's instructions at

Open the Notebook from the back side and locate the RAM. Now remove the RAM and place it again and check, you can even try inserting the RAM in different slot if any used slot is available.

Check out.

SOURCE: when i press the power

Hi,

I believe blinking lights on the Caps and NumLock means that there is a problem about the Hardware, I've been a Tech Support for HP and those blinking lights are problems for Video Card, CPU, Memory.
It would be better if you call the manufacturer try if they can service your machine.

Hope it helps. =)

The caps lock button flashing is a code to tell you what the problem is.
Count the flashes and get back to me. They will pause between counts, but if it is one it just flashes slow.

HI,
Do a power drain, this may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im Not really sure how it affects the display of the computer but this method usually fix such problem like that, First, removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter the press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds then connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on, if nothing happens,there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...


Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

We have a new Acer Aspire one and the mouse is frozen. When I try to turn off the unit nothing happens. How do I free the unit or turn off everything?


As this was posted a month ago, I'm presuming you've solved the problem?
However, when your laptop locks up completely, the mouse won't move and the keyboard is unresponsive (press the caps lock key and see if the caps lock LED comes on or off?)
Press and HOLD the power button for a few seconds until the laptop powers off, Wait a few seconds and then power it on again, the computer may moan that it wasn't shut down correctly, but this is normal (because you couldn't shut down correctly)

Have bosch classixx6 1200 express which has frozen displays a flashing key and 36 will not budge, desperate Molly


Simply press and hold the Start button for 4 seconds and the childproof lock will turn off - the key symbol will disappear from the display.

If you want to activate the lock then press and hold the Start button until the key symbol appears on the display.

Will not power up, no fans, post code or display


when you say you press the reset button you mean the power button right?
I assume you just press it and pc restarts...
instead bootup to as far as you can get then press and hold power button until pc turns off then reboot ..you should now be able to access the point where it says windows was shutdown incorrectly or interrupted options to restart normal or last good config etc..
if it doesnt you may need to reinstall windows
