Caps lock flashing

Hello,

 

Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum.  I am sorry for the issues you experience with your HP computer.

 

Based on your description this should be hardware failure - 5 blinks is for the systemboard/motherboard.

 

Please, review these 2 HP official articles about such issues you experience now. Follow the appropriate steps that fit your case to attempt to fix the issue:

If you did try everything in the articles but nothing helped, I am afraid you will need to bring your computer (or ship it) to service - HP Authorized service center. If the computer is still under warranty, you will need to notify HP support first. If you are not sure where such a center is located, please contact HP support for assistance in finding one. Here is more info:

Please, let me know how it goes.
