HP beats laptop won’t power on caps lock flashing

HP Recommended
HP Beats 15 - p030nr
Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit)
My laptop has been stored away in a dry place for a while without use but upon attempting to use it today I discovered I could not turn it on. The light for the power cord lit up and he power button lit up as well. I could feel the fan running but the screen remained black. The caps lock button began to flash and it began beeping rhythmically at me. I did some research and found that I should try restarting the device in various states of power capacity, with the battery out but plugged in, not plugged in with the battery in, and such. None of these attempts have had any success. I then saw that I may need to readjust the Raam of my computer. But that requires disassembly skills I do not possess. What are my options? Is this a simple fix that I am just missing or do I need to get it professionally repaired?

@Bradbaxter

Thank you for posting on HP Forums,

Flower_Bud is at your service.

 

As I understand, your notebook does not boot and caps lock light is blinking, 

No worries, as I'll be glad to help you, that said, I'll need a few more details to dissect your concern & provide an accurate solution:

When was the last time it worked fine?

Were there any hardware/software changes made? 

How many times caps lock light blinks?

 

You could refer to this article which explains the issue: Click here (Go to LEDs near Caps Lock and Number Lock keys blink when starting the notebook >BIOS flashing light error codes for computers released after April 2015 )

 

As per the error message, you could perform the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the article. 

 

Keep me posted,

Cheers!
