Compaq Presario CQ60 Flashing Caps Lock

So today I went to a clients house whose laptop would boot anymore. The caps lock light is pulsing and nothing else. The fans seem to fire up but nothing else.

Well I took it back to the shop and put in a new Hard Drive and was able to load Windows and thought that that was that. Well on reboot same issue.

I tried a hard reset. To do this take out the battery, unplug the unit and hold the power button for 15 seconds or so. This works sometimes but not this time.

So I called HP. It was out of warranty, and they felt it was a Motherboard.

So if your having this issue and your under warranty call HP. 1-800-HP-INVENT.

If not it looks like your buying a new Laptop.
