    Hopefully I posted in the right section. But anyways I will be as detailed as possible. Currently I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 115dx running Wins7 out of factory. One day I was using my computer perfectly fine, everything normal and running great. I decide to close the lid to put it to sleep.

    I come back later to find that it didn't actually sleep and was just stuck there. This has happened before and I would just turn off the computer and it would be fine. But recently I did and it is now stuck at bootup. The caps locks blinks 1 time, which corresponds to CPU not functioning I believe. I reseated harddrive and ram, didn't do much.

    Then randomly as I am trying to get it to boot by turning it on and off, waited a few and it booted up normally. Perfect. Then I decided to shut it down instead of putting it to sleep just to find later when trying to get on, its back to the problem.

    Any help would be appreciated on how to prevent this without any major repair work.

    This will be the only BUMP I give my thread, I'll just figure no one has a clue.

    I'll move the thread from Windows 7 to Hardware to see if those folks have a clue. :)

    Here is the support site for the Compaq Presario CQ56-115DX laptop.

    You might want to add and save this site in your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can readily refer to it when needed.

    Here is the section on resolving sleep and hibernation issues.

    Thank you.

    Thanks but I've already done those "fixes" on the HP site before I came here asking help. None have worked.

    I ended up figuring it out myself. Seems to be that the motherboard has bad solder points, let my laptop heat up and restarted and it worked for now. Will have to remelt solder points.
