    Default Crashed laptop, won't boot and caps lock light presario cq56

    I have a presario cq56 which was given as a gift this Xmas, yesterday it froze and crashed while on Facebook, I turned it off by the power and turned back on, the caps lock f12 and power light all came on but te laptop didn't boot up, I herd the fan come on briefly also. The caps lock light flashes twice then doesn't for a few seconds then flashes twice, it keeps doing this consecutively, I have tried taking battery out etc.. Anyone have any ideas?

    See the table for blink codes here Troubleshooting LED Blink Codes or Beep Codes During Startup or Boot HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

    If it is right its corrupted BIOS. Try take out the CMOS battery to reset the BIOS. I'm not sure on you rmodel but it could be accessable under the cover for the RAM memory.

    Try a hard-reset first. This means unplug the AC-power-supply, get the battery out and press, and hold down, the power-button for atleast 30 seconds. This should clean the complete memory so you can start from fresh.

    If I do the 30 second press with the battery taken out, will it wipe out all of my memory ( my memory aka pictures music videos are not backed up)? my laptop was working fine this morning and when I came home today, the screen wouldnt turn on. The caps lock light was on but when I unplugged it, the light turned off, but the screen still remained blank.

    Pictures and music are on the hard drive, not the memory. Performing the 30 second process won't harm the pictures and music.
