HP 15-f033wm Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR) Doesn't not turn on, and I've done hard reset. No fan noises.

HP 15-f033wm Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows XP
My laptop won't turn on, the LED lights blink on and off, and I don't hear fan but I hear something clicking lightly. Laptop is out of warranty. I have removed battery pressed power button for 15 seconds, and connected power but not battery and nothing. HELP!!

Is there a pattern to the blinking lights?

The caps lock blinks white (One blink lasts about 2 seconds followed by a 3 second pause.

From the chart in the link I posted above>>

 

CPU
LEDs blink 1 time
CPU not functional

 

In other posts I have seen- this usually is not solved by replacing CPU. In those cases it seems more likely that it is CPU socket on motherboard. When it comes to replacing a motherboard you are better off buying a new laptop.
