Hi there, I am new to the Forum. I hope you can help me.
The original Windows was 8 upgraded to 10.
I replaced the bottom cover. The Notebook was working fine before. In the proses I disconnected the CMOSS battery, HD, DVD, WiFi adapter, etc. I have done this before many times.
Before assembling all back, as I usually do, I performed a quick test. I connected the LCD, memory, CMOSS battery, on/off button board, keyboard and DC charger.
When I pressed the on/off button the led on the on/off board turned on, the CPU fan turned on, the HP logo on the back of the LCD turned on, the LCD screen stays black and the caps lock led start blinking once every 2 or 3 seconds.
Because this Notebook was Windows 8 and use UEFI I decided to finish the assembling and try again. It responded the same as before.
I can’t believe that the MB is bad; it was OK before replacing the bottom cover. Probably something to do with the UEFI/Windows 10 combination??????
What I have tried?
1-Hard Reset: no battery, no DC charger and pressing on/off button for 15 seconds.
2-Disconected the CMOSS battery for several hours.
3-Turning on and hitting the Esc, F12,F11,F10… button many times (all the F buttons).
