    My friend borrowed my computer and now the CAPS lock blinks two times then pause and repeats. It's a bios failure and I did what was listed for hp support and downloaded a recovery USB. My issue now is that no matter how many time I hold the windows key+ B or V and hold the power for 2-3 seconds, the screen stays black so it never reads the USB or goes to the BIOS screen. I know that my screen is not broken because once before the bios screen came up months ago. I've looked at many video in regard to this but none seem to have my issue. After putting in the USB, my screen stays black. there is no fan running an the CAPS lock blink and the internet button is orange.

    Can anyone help? I have not been unable to use my laptop in over 8 months and I am trying to avoid another expense right now since I am starting back at school.

    Ok, please read my 2nd link carefully first, removing the Cmos battery let a poster there update the Bios with a Usb stick which fixed his laptop.
