When I power up the laptop nothing happens except there is a light that blinks on the caps lock button. It is 3 slow blinks then 2 quick blinks. HP code instruction says it could be a bad memory chip. I removed the chip, put it back in, and it didn't help. Bought a new memory chip and still nothing. Anybody got any ideas? Thanks.

If there is more than one RAM for the computer I would consider replacing each.

It is is also possible it is a corrupt BIOS. You can try removing and then replacing the CMOS battery.

If none of this works, then I would suggest having it looked at.
Thanks for the response and the suggestions. Unfortunately, there was only one chip and I replaced it with no success. Also, took at the cmos battery and replaced it as well. Still Nada.
