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?
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.
