My HP Omen laptop computer does not boot up, just sits at blank screen. Then the Caps Lock key blinks 5 times slow and three times fast. I know it says on support that that blink code means: System Board issue - The embedded controller times out waiting for the BIOS... I don't know why this would happen.. Its a little less than 2 years out and obviously out of warranty... I want to know if there is a way to fix this, or am I screwed??? I took great care of it, never dropped it, always kept it in my laptop bag and never let the battery die completely.. yet here I am with a dead computer... Its hard to believe that this new of a computer would be dead already, for no apparent reason... so either HP products have gone down hill, or I am the most unlucky person in the world right now... 😕 . HELP??!!
