Hello,

I have an hp laptop and it's about 3 years old. When I power up the laptop it makes the sounds of booting up and the lights turn on but it just sits at a black screen with caps lock continually flashing. I have gotten it to boot up normally once by turning it on and off for a couple hours but then it went into sleep mode and now it back to not being able to do anything at a black screen with caps lock flashing. It has windows 7. Please if someone can help me that would be great!

First thing to do as suggested by HP also, turn of your PC take off the battery take of charger open the RAM slot.

Take of the ram and disconnect the wireless card

Press the power button when in that point and keep it pressed for like 30 sec.

Reassemble it all and try to boot.

It may be a power problem or BIOS failure - try this out it should be OK.

If that does not work, the worst scenario is that you just reset your BIOS from CMOS by taking out the small battery behind the RAM modules for a few seconds.

Hope the info helped.
