Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
I know this is not a new machine but it was running great. I closed the screen, went to bed, to work, came home open the screen swipe the mouse pad and nothing. This is where the screen would come on for my PW. The fan will come on, the Caps and Number lock lights flash at the same time and flash again in about five seconds. The disc indicator on the front left of the machine will not light, the charging light comes on. I plugged it into my bravia as an external monitor and it would not recognize an input. Black screen. It does not have an ozone smell or smell as if anything has over heated. I am leaning towards the motherboard if there is a problem. It worked fine the day before and was untouched when this occurred, the only out of the ordinary activity was I used a Ethernet cable man, and not my wireless. But it was still my internet router. Thanks for any help.
If you remove the power adapter and battery, press the power button to discharge any latent power. Plug the power adapter back in press power. If it still shows flashing Caps lock light, it has overheated and requires a GPU rework/repair.

Testimonial: "I did what you told me to do and Cap and Number lock lights still flash. Does this mean that the mother board needs to be replaced? I would prefer to fix this machine but I also realize it is dated. I found a MB for $60.00 but what will happen next? It always seemed like the fan was trying to pull as much air as it could get, I have been fanatical about cleaning all of our electronics ( my OCD ) won't allow me to not clean them. I really hope the Hard Drive is alright, I have pictures on there and I hope I can get them. Thank You for your help."
