said by Chrno:Thanks. I just also read that the fault could be the gpu, as HP designed 1 heatsink for the CPU/GPU, as opposed to 1 for each. Im going to open it and check them before I do anything. If its the motherboard, there is no sense in replacing that.
I have seen a lot of failures with this series. The blink code for the caplock does indicate "Check CPU", but the fault ain't the CPU. It's 99% the mainboard.
For 11 dollars... I guess you can replacing the CPU a try.
