I have a Compaq Presario M2105US, and it won't boot up. When I press the power button, only the Caps and Scroll lights begin to flash continuously. After a while, the fan does go on, but there could be a few different reasons for this. Two days ago, I ran the update program, so I don't know if there was a BIOS change. On top of that, there was a power outage for about half a second. I took apart the laptop (WHY ARE THERE SO MANY HIDDEN SCREWS?) to disconnect and reconnect everything to no avail. Bringing it to a professional would be a waste of money, since it was a cheapy to begin with. Any ideas out there?
Thanks for any advice,
