Pavilion DV5 1120us/ Blank screen no bios no OS

I am working on an HP DV5 1120us laptop for a co-worker. When powered on the screen stays blank, all the lights above the keyboard are on and the caps-lock light and num-lock light are flashing together once every 2-4 seconds.  According to HP here the CPU is bad. However, after replacing the CPU it's doing the same thing. Any suggestions or things I can try? 

 

Please help! 

 

Thanks

If the laptop still do not boot to Bios/Windows, compatible motherboard needs to be replaced ...

I called HP support and they are saying bad motherboard too. They want $425 to fix it! I'll be doing for way cheaper!!!

My dv5 screen is going black (flickering off to black) until I restart. Is this a similar problem?

This is happening to me too and I just bought mine yesterday. If I turn it off and turn it back on it works fine though.
