This PC has been off for more than a year. Initially, I charged it for about an hour then turned it on but all I get is a blinking CAPS Lock and orange light on wireless button. Charger lights is on so I think that's not the problem.

So, one of the steps said to count the number of blinks before a break. I did count and the blinks are 3, therefore it's a memory error. So I opened the back of the laptop, removed and reinserted the memory card but it didn't solve the problem.
