we need the blink codes

 

the PC has no pop out easy battery,  so disconnecting it first, is problematic, as we always do FIRST.

do the BIOS screens all works < poweron, push ESC, or F9 or F11,  ?  they must or battery can be shorted inside.

if BIOS works,

then boot F9 to a USB stick with (linux live or windows 7/8'10 live PE on it)

run now?  if not battery bad.

 

just did this to my Sister-n-laws,  the battery was swamping the power regs,  so new battery all is good.

 

but that is not the only thing that can fail.

so we test it all.

the battery

BIOS ok

USB port boot to UDisk OS, PE, or linux

we even test the HDD  (SSD) if susppected,  (all alse works but F11 install fails)

 

I am not HP, and I am fully retired since 2009 from this industry. older than dirt,

I can't acces BIOS at all, my laptop display does not react to anything. What should i do? And by the way, the caps lock blink is once (the cpu error one i think?)
