My HP laptop was failing to boot up - i followed the steps described on youtube to try and reset the battery
Now I am presented with a black screen and the power light is not lighting up when pressed.
The only response I am getting from the device is when I hold down the power button + windows key + B for 30 seconds, after which the power light comes on for a few seconds, the caps lock key lights up and then the power light goes out after 5 seconds.
