Pavilion dm3 notebook won't start with hard reset

My hp Pavilion dm3 notebook went into sleep mode ad won't start up again. I tried the hard reset a number of times without luck. The led light colour is pinkish. Same pinkish  colour for the bluetooth led instead of blue.

What do I do?

Hi @Adesola_OOU,

I grasp that the notebook went into sleep / hibernation and you are unable to wake it up.  The LED lights are a pinkish color. You have tried restarting it several times but the issue remains. While I wait for the requested information, try a forced reset. HP Notebook PCs - Performing a Hard Reset or Forced Reset.
