Help with my hp dv7

by scoutsout2k6 / December 19, 2012 5:48 AM PST

Recently my laptop decided to take a very long time to boot to the login screen...now it is not coming on at all. I ordered the recovery disks from hp but still can't get anything to come on screen. Also the caps lock and num lock lights are flashing in sync? Can anyone help with this?

Usually it's the motherboard.

I take it the battery out and just the charger gave same results. So, a mainboard.
