Well it happened yesterday when i left my house... and i left my pc on charge for 3 hours i came back and the screen was black. I noticed that the caps lock and num lock light were flashing and that the screen would not appear. I tried rebooting the pc but the fan kicks on for around 5 seconds then the caps lock and num lock lights flash.
Laptop is not very old it is a (HP-DV6000) Costly
It is not a virus i am 100% Sure
-My thoughts on what caused this occourence is that i have left it on charge to much and battery fried?
My Question is What can i do to fix this When i boot my pc it will kick fan on and then it just Flashes cap lock and num lock no screen appears.

I don't think you damaged your computer by letting the battery charge. The battery on most computers charge whenever the machine is turned on.
It sounds like you may have a fried motherboard. I would try restoring the operating system.

Something has definitely gone wrong. Before jumping to the conclusion of a fried motherboard, I would try resetting the CMOS.
This is done differently on different models.
Some let you do it by removing the main battery (and unplugged of course) and holding the power button down for 10 seconds.
Others you have to remove the CMOS battery (small button battery on the motherboard) for 10-15 seconds. This is harder as you may have to partially disassemble the device (don't void your warranty though!!). If your lucky you might able to get to the CMOS battery via the RAM or HDD cover on the back. Google about your exact model about how to reset the CMOS.
If this doesn't work I recommend getting it repaired by an expert. Hope you still have warranty cover!!! It may well be fried and motherboards are expensive. Usually better value to buy a new one

Your warranty may be extended if it is logged as a model that suffers from this common fault:
Also, check here for a PDF that shows information on the CMOS for your model:
Hope this helps.
