HP DV5 1106AX won't boot, caps & num lock lights flash

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

My HP DV5 1106AX Laptop boots into Vista Home runs for some time (10 to 15 mins), then hangs with Black Screen.

 

After pressing the Power button for some time (forcibly powering off) it shuts down.

 

Again pressing the Power button shows no activity only Caps and Num lights flash continously after a  gap of 2 secs.

 

I reffered the support page for LED Blink codes, but my problem is LEDs blinking goes on and on..... while the support page lists for 5 blinks.

 

One more interesting thing... My laptop again successfully boots if i kept it idle for more than 12 or more hours and then again freezes with blank screen within 10 mins.

 

Tried everything like removed Battey, pressed power key for 30secs, reinstalled Memory and Hard drives...... But the problem still there.

 

Any ideas ???

 

 

 

Thanks.

I had almost the same probleme, laptop was in sleep, tried to wake it up:keybord and light were on but a black screen. Then decided to turn off by holding power. When i start it back i had the cap lock and num lock blinking twice continusly. I hold the power button to shut it down then by mistake touch the ''quick play'' next to the 'mute' and everything was find.

Hope this could help.
