Hi, 

Usually a single blink every two-three seconds means that there is a problem with the CPU and you should take it to a technician to look at.

 

Try to perform a hard reset. Remove power adapter and battery and hold down power button for 30 seconds.

Let me know,

Hello David,

Thanks for your response.

I have try the hard reset several times.

I did take the laptop apart and reset the CPU.

Still no luck.

Could it be the motherboard also?

Is ther a way to test the CPU?

 

Thanks for your help.

Dennis
