Hello,

 

Here is a link to the led blink codes:  http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01443366&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=uk&lang=en&rule=26781&... Once you figure out what the issue is, please repost and we will try to help you, okay?

i have looked at the list allready and it seems to me that it idicates CPU failure. But im not too sure it the light is blinking continusly and i have tried another cpu inside the machine and this didnt work. I didnt however try the same cpu it was an older chip but still fit.

Re: Compaq Presario CQ62 FAULT HELP HELP HELP PLEASE

It's a hard reset; where you disconnect all power sources, battery, plug, usb devices, etc, and then hold down the power button for a minute to clear residual charge, which will reset your bios--an intern friend here @ Hp Support  DDotDacherDash calls it a 'cold start' and I was talking to him while also conveying to you. Sorry about that.

Re: Compaq Presario CQ62 FAULT HELP HELP HELP PLEASE

Ive already tried that but still have same fault. Ive had a reflow performed just in case it was video card still same fault. I tried a different processor in the motherboard still same fault. But wasnt sure if it had to be exact same processor the one i used fit.

Originally i thought it was a video card issue but evidently not. Now i really cannot pin point the issue. Theres no video output on screen vga or hdmi. Once turned on it turns itself off. Then i turn it on again and there is just a continusly light flashing on caps lock. 1 light every 3 seconds. Really need to fix this issue.

Hello,

 

 

That's the cpu. No doubt. Here's a link to codes:

Hp bios is extremely finicky. If the laptop doesn't have the right cpu, it just ain't going to go!

So you reccomend buying a new cpu then. They have the same model on ebay for £10. So i may try that. Should that solve video issues etc.

Just to make this clearer. I jus connected everythi back together and it started and caps lock blinks twice. Then restarts and the the caps lock blink once continusly. So maybe bios failure????? Any help on restoring this. As i dont want to buy a cpu for nothing.

Hello,

 

 

The laptop can be having multiple failures; the blink codes indicate both an undesirable cpu and a corrupted bios.

I don't know what to tell you other than . . . I don't know.
