Given all the things that you ahev done, clean the drive with a CD/DVD cleaner and / or air duster. Check the device is enabled in Device Manager and it shows no errors. If it does then read the explanation. If not and it looks OK you will most likely need a new drive!

Blank screen and the power LED flashes Red five times, once every second, followed by a two second pause, and the computer beeps five times. (Beeps stop after fifth iteration but LEDs continue flashing.)
Cause Pre-video memory error.
1. Reseat DIMMs. Power on the system.
2. Replace DIMMs one at a time to isolate the faulty module.
3. Replace third-party memory with HP memory.
4. Replace the system board.

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It
lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that
the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the
Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup
mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated
the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.
To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.
The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to
indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes
it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's
Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.
Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered
on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this
LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.
DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will
remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when
the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or
receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.
Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the
Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.
