Computer won't boot up, black screen and HDD light blinking

Ask a question Sprankle
My laptop when pressed the on button everything turns on except it won't boot. It stays on a black screen and the HDD light keeps blinking continuously. It causes the screen to flash slightly whenever it blinks... any reason why this is happening?
