Blinking Caps Lock and Scroll Lock Buttons on Compaq Laptop

by ron1959 / March 25, 2009 2:42 AM PDT

Over the weekend my laptop crashed while I was using it and a white screen appeared. I shut it down and now every time I turn it on the Caps and Scroll Lock lights keep blinking and the screen stays black. I have tried taking out the memory cards and battery and then reinstalling them and still the same results. I just got laid off so I don't really want to spend the money to get it fixed, I have a bunch of pictures that I have not backed up (stupid me). Any help would be appreciated.
