My sister gave me this laptop to fix it, but I have no idea what is going on! it turns on, but doesnt post/boot, the Caps Lock light flashes, and the F12 light is orange...

Anyone encounter this problem and was able to fix it? Thanks!

*The caps lock light flashes, then pause, and then flashes agian, the F12 light is solid*
 
Try the following and see if it will turn on...

1. First make sure the device has been charged.
2. Unplug your charger cord.
3. Remove the battery.
4. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds.
5. Now plug back in the power/charger cord.
6. Now put the battery back in.

If this doesn't help, then test the power cord to see if it is good. Either try your cord in another device, or try another devices cord in your laptop.

Should that not be the problem, then check the battery to see if it needs replacing.
