I have an HP laptop that has been acting up over the past few days. After I got back from a few days of not using it and trying to turn it on it froze on the HP screen, pressing and holding the power button and restarting made it boot. The next day it refused to boot, this time I took it apart and it booted, but hung when shutting down. It got all the way to shutting the wireless off but would not shut down without holding the power button. Today then I tried to rearrange the RAM and took it apart again. It started today and hung on the HP logo once or twice and then it turned on but went to a black screen, no HP logo. After a reset (no AC, Batt. Press and hold power) all of the power lights that show that the computer is on blinked, the first time it blinked about 2 times then rebooted and continuously blinked. Later it just continously blinked. It is not the same light as you get when you have a low battery. I tried booting on only AC, only batt (tried 2 batts) and both, still get the blinking light.
I would like to thank you for trudging through the above and for your help.
My laptop is an HP-G60-630US that is about 3 years old.
EDIT: Oh, it is also running Windows 7 and has Ubuntu studio installed, so grub should show up
