I noticed that there was a password set on my BIOS and I read in the forums that I could reset that by taking out the CMOS battery. Well I did such and while I was doing that I decided to clean my keyboard and fan unit, so I undid the screws for the keyboard and took the keyboard off. Now, after putting everything back together, my laptop will not turn on to the BIOS and thr caps lock light is flashing continuously and thr wi-fi amber light is on. I know the continuously single flash usually means there is a problem with the CPU, but I am wondering how this could have happened. I have done everything from the forums such as reseating the memory modules, trying to restore the BIOS, letting it sit overnight while running, power resetting, and taking out the CMOS battery again. Is there any other steps that I could be missing?

This is the Maintenance and Service Guide for your Notebook: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03591281.pdf
Can you please go through the replacement procedures of the components that you already replaced and confirm whether you had done everything accordingly? We will have to make sure that we are not missing on anything that is not letting the Notebook boot properly now. Please take utmost attention when you check the procedure for the procesor. If we miss on a small thing, it could be a problem.
