Compaq Presario CQ56 Caps Lock blinks

[ Edited ]

Im was watching videos in YouTube, and suddendly screen comed white complety, and it didn't even response to Ctrl+Alt+Delete. Then i shutdown it holding power button. Then tried to start it, but then Compaq logo appeared and there reads all normally Press ESC for startup menu, then the computer continued to boot normally and there is Starting Windows and after few minutes, screen goes black and nothing happens. Then i tried to restart, and tried to access BIOS and when i was in BIOS, the screen did go black again. Then tried to reboot, and this time Caps Lock LED keep blinking. LED flashes 2 times, then there is a small gap and then it flashes again 2 times, and the same is happening all the time. Does it mean that there is a fault in BIOS? Laptop is only just few months old. I tried hard reset, but same thing happens, caps lock just keep blinking.

Edit: I just noticed sometimes there is not light even in Caps Lock, just blank screen, thats all, and sometimes when i try to boot it the Caps Lock just shows light, it doesnt blink or something, it is just on. But usually it binks 2 times and then there is small gap and it makes same all day. Is the laptop totally broken or is there way to fix it?

Edit 2: Now it is blinkin 1 light, then gap, then 1 light, and same continues

Hi,

 

I just meant you should try the Hard Reset procedure - removing the battery and holding down the Power Button etc - If this doesn't help, I would strongly recommend returning the notebook to HP and have it repaired under warranty.  You can contact HP on the link below.

 

Contact HP

 

Best wishes,
