Won't turn on

My laptop won't turn on, it was fine yesterday. The CAPS lock light keeps blinking. I've tried turning it on and off as well as taking out the battery and plugging it in.

Remove 1 stick of ram and turn on, if no! take out the second one and put back the first, and power on, if okay you know the 1 stick is bad. Remove main battery and power on, "long shot" if no change chances are it is a motherboard issue.

check by removing the battery then put it back again power it on, or without battery power it on directly then check, if still the same problem, the fault is in the motherboard of the laptop, better take it the service center or consult some technician in your area

The battery light is just blinking on and off but the laptop wont turn on. The caps lock and number lock key are turned on though.

The battery light blinking signifies a dead battery. Try plugging it in and waiting 5 minutes then testing again.
If you can't get a charge to take, then the most likely suspects are the charger or the port in the back of the laptop.
Good Luck

My laptop will not turn on

Try another AC Adapter with the battery taken out of the laptop. If the light still blinks then that means the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
