Solved!

Laptop does not boot. Screen remains blank, but caps lock and wifi keys light up.

Pavilion g6 1bus50
Linux

I have tried resetting and tried a new memory stick to no avail. I think it is the graphics chip set but not sure. The next step is replacing the mother board (rather than trying to replace the graphic chipset) but would like to know if the

blinking LED on the caps lock key is telling me anything. It blinks 5 times, pauses and blinks 5 times, and repeats this endlessly. Does anyone know what it means or have any other suggestions?

Thanx

R.J.

Welcome to the HP Forums!

 

I read your post on your HP Pavilion g6 Notebook and issues with the flashing lights. Beep codes at listed here.

 

Have you tried to reload the factory installed BIOS Setup settings. http://ow.ly/Jsqq302g0dj.

Thanks for replying!  The screen remains totally blank so i don't think it's possible to reload the BIOS. Thanks for the

link to the error codes. It tells me it's a general board issue - so might not be graphics chip after all. So, I think the best

solution is swapping the motherboard.

I installed a new (used) motherboard and the laptop is working now.
