Hello,

I have a HP Pavilion dv7 1135 nr Laptop. I was using my laptop normally this morning and all of a sudden I get a random black screen. Not knowing what to do, I turned it off and let it sit for a bit, thinking it just over heated or something. I turned it back on hoping the black screen of death would go away but it didn't. The laptop boots up normally and the black screen is there and my caps lock light is flashing (I don't know why it is doing it). I am hoping somebody has some solutions to how i can fix this problem.

Thank you.

Hi Bape, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Try plugging in an external monitor to see if you have video output.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thank you I figured out it was Blink Code 1. I really don't understand what that means.

Here is your blink codes and descriptions.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...product=3816592

Blink 1 means your CPU is none functional, Blink: 1 - Caps Lock/Num Lock CPU CPU not functional

Explanation:The computer processor (Blink code 1) has stopped functioning properly. Contact HP for assistance.

Are you sure it is 1 blink code?

Bruce.

Blinking cap/num lock led code reveals that my processor is no longer functioning properly. Where can I buy a good one equivalent to the one in my HP Pavillion dv4? If I can replace it myself I would like to do so rather than pay an arm and leg for someone else to do it. After careful research...it's actually not hard.

I had the same issue today with my HP, I also have the CPU failure, I havent found much info with a long term fix however I do know how to get the laptop back on and it seems strange but it works, just turn your computer off and take a blow dryer turn it on to level 2 or the highest it goes and ull wanna blow in on the back of the computer all the way over to the left where the top vent is for at least one min, after that the computer will be a little warm but just turn it on and wala its back on, sad thing is anytime the screen goes out or u turn it off you have to do the same thing, but at least you can back up information.
