Hp g62 flashing caps lock

Hi folks!

I have a g62-339wm laptop that I purchased about a year ago and out of the blue it will not boot or even post anymore. Screen is blank also, all it does is the caps lock led flashes once every 5 seconds. No screen or beeps the fan turns on tho:/

I've searched for this problem and all I can find is issues when the caps lock and number lock both flash at the same time not just the caps lock.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance!!

Re: Hp g62 flashing caps lock

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!! I checked both those links you gave me out and it would seem that a bad processor is the culprit with the caps lock key flashing once every 5 seconds but now when I go to turn it on the caps lock light either stays on solidly or doesn't come on at all.... Now what in the world could that mean??

Re: Hp g62 flashing caps lock

I pulled both sticks out and put them in one at a time and tested them in another laptop and they worked fine but still no luck on the g62. Any other ideas??

Re: Hp g62 flashing caps lock

Hey all I know it has been a while since I've been on here but I got a little frustrated with it and let it sit it hopes it would fix itself but no luck:smileysad:  I would like to ask if anyone has any other ideas of something for me to try or anything I can test. I have a good multimeter that I know how to use and I am not afraid of taking the laptop apart!

Thanks

Jake

Re: Hp g62 flashing caps lock

I have a similar problem. My laptop was working perfectly when I shut it down and it wouldn't start again. I came to the conclusion that never will I buy an HP laptop with an AMD processor. I will be replacing the processor and will let you knpow if i works.

Re: Hp g62 flashing caps lock

Hmmm I was really hoping that would fix it! I wonder if the whole motherboard needs replacing. I can only imagine how much one of those are for a laptop :-(
