Ok, so here is my predicament. My laptop (Presario CQ61) has been having some overheat issues for the past few months. I bought a cooling fan to set it on for the time being. But, unfortunately, it still shuts down from time to time to cool itself off. Ok, no problem. Keeps me from spending too much time on it. Recently, I was having some issues with it, and I decided to restart. about halfway through the reboot, it powered down. I thought something had gone wrong, and turned it back on. I got the message that said it had shutdown to prevent overheat. well, I was a little impatient and went ahead with the reboot, and made sure the cooling fan was working (touchy usb cord) after that screen, it went black again to bring up the usual screen that allowed me to start in safe mode, but it didn't fill out the screen. it just went to a blank prompt screen, and I guess it froze there. So I forced it to shut down, watched a little tv, and came back a half hour later. But when I came back and turned it on, all it did was light up the power button and the wifi button. the caps lock and the number lock or scroll lock indication lights are blinking in 2 blink intervals.

Did I do something wrong?

I have turned it off, let it set, and turned it on: same thing happens
I tried every single F# key, nothing changes
CTRL+ALT+DEL does nothing

the only thing I can do, is watch the lights flash, or force it off (pressing power once does not shut it off)

and if this is in the wrong place, im sorry. it looked like the right place to me.

Hi,
I think the problem with your laptop reside in power supply and that's why it cant boot completely. try to find out the issue with power supply and everything will be fine.

I have unplugged from the wall, separated the cord from the....box thing... whatever. and unplugged it from the computer. unfortunately, the battery is crap, so it wont even hold enough power to even try to start up. I plugged everything back together, made sure it was all the way together, and still, nothing. black screen, blinking lights. and when I say black screen, i mean it isnt even backlit black. the screen is still off.
