Pavillion G6 2229tu won't boot,giving LED code

Pavilion G6 2229tu
Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)
Well I have a hp pavilion G6 2229tu , it's showing the same 1 blink LED code , and the towel trick works but the problem is it has a i5 3rd gen processor and gpu in embedded in the cpu chip itself , and there is no dedicated graphics , which I think means there is no seperate gpu chip on motherboard . So why does that towel trick work for my laptop ? Does it work in case of excessive dust ?? I can't open the laptop worrying I won't be able to reassemble it .. Can anyone help ?

Hi @coolrockstar27,


Thank you for posting at HP Forums!


I have read your post and wanted to help.


I understand that the laptop does not boot up, but the towel trick works. Please run the hardware tests when you can enter Windows successfully.


If the CPU is not functioning well, it is better to contact HP support or a local repair store to arrange a repair.
