I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

It works fine ...

My Compaq 615 laptop screen doesn't come on, instead it blinks capslock 5 times. What shlould I do? It has an AMD Athlon X2 processor, with Radeon 3200 graphics. I didn't install any new software or hardware recently. All I did was work with the system at night, shut it down, and when I turned it on the following morning, the screen refused to come up, but the caps lock blinks 5 times.

Sorry to hear that. Please refer to the Blank Screen LED Error Codes document from HP Support. It sounds like a "General system board failure." The explanation says to contact HP for assistance. The motherboard might need to be replaced, and you will probably require the assistance of a technician to fix the problem.

Hello, Any certain meaning for LED caps-lock blinking (white) one-two,  one-two?No change in frequency,  no beeps. I found a page about the Caps-lock LED blinking sequences.*This one is blinking in two-times sequences.    But on the HP "legend" to interpret the blinkingI did not see a matching interpretation for that one-two,  one-two,  sequence.[The closest ones were 4.2  and 4.3 but I have "no beeps" and these are only two blinks (not followed by a slower nor faster blinks).] This is for an HP split x2  tablet/notebook.  *

So I was using the laptop with an hdmi cord attatched to my tv and it wasn't playing sound. I went through the control panel and attempted a few different things with no luck so I rebooted the computer. When it turned back on only the tv screen worked and the laptop screen was black. No backlight just dark. I performed a bios recovery and that went through succesfully but the caps lock button still blinks and I still have no video to the laptop screen.

I have tried resetting and tried a new memory stick to no avail. I think it is the graphics chip set but not sure. The next step is replacing the mother board (rather than trying to replace the graphic chipset) but would like to know if theblinking LED on the caps lock key is telling me anything. It blinks 5 times, pauses and blinks 5 times, and repeats this endlessly. Does anyone know what it means or have any other suggestions?ThanxR.J.

I have desktop pc with two keyboards usb and bluetooth. Also TOSHIBA Bluetooth Stack software, but in device manager: keyboard > hid keyboard device both using microsoft drivers. And I dont have any software installed for keyboards. Also bluetooth has separate system tray indications (it is also disabled) so its not that.

Acualy I dont have anywhere in registry KeyIndication. So any ideas how to disable it? Thanks

You'll find that the messages are controlled by a piece of software that came pre-installed on your machine when you bought it. Try looking for a Hotkey managing app to see if the notifications can be disabled.

two blinks is corrupt BIOS. Connect the power adapter to the notebook and the hold down the Windows key and the B key at the same time. It may take a full minute or so of holding down the two keys, but you should  see an onscreen message responce that says that it is recovering the BIOS.

Good afternoon,

I just did a clean install of 7 to fix errors with my laptop, and it fixed one, but not the other main issues,
My caps lock, and number lock button on the keyboard don't have a light on it and the pop up that is supposed to pop up doesn't show up on screen.
I figured by doing a clean install it would all magically appear again... I was wrong, I have tweaked everything I could think of looking/trying to change setting from the keyboard in control panel, (including messing around with ease of use) and Gateways so called "support" area was of no help, as well as googling the issue has led me down a path of useless tips, I have also looked on this forum for help.

Any help in this area would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Hey,my DV6-3023CA had thermal issues and intiate a thermal shutdown after hitting 103C very quickly.I disassembled, put on new thermal paste, cleaned fans and re-assembled.Now I get 1 blink on the caps lock.Tried every method, disassembled+reassembled over 5 times now.I think the CPU may have been damaged by me somehow during disassembly (no bent pins) or the extreme temperatures.Now I'm wondering 2 things.1) Is there any way to verify the CPU is the problem without sending it into HP? 2) If my CPU is dead, what can I upgrade the computer's Turion II P520 to?I've checked the manuals and there are a lot of CPUs on the same architecture, but I'm not sure which ones are compatible. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Seven Forums markrheuer. A couple of possibilities, starting with easiest.

Start> In search box type keyboard> Under Control Panel, click on Keyboard> IF your Keyboard properties has a Key settings tab> Key Settings List> Double click on Caps Lock> Display Caps Lock status on screen> Click the check mark box> Finish

If no key settings tab, you can make your screen flash when you have Caps lock on

Start> In search box type ease of access> Enter> Make the keyboard easier to use> Check the box next to Turn on toggle keys> Apply> OK> Back to Ease of access main page> Use text or visual alternatives for sounds> Turn on visual notifications for sounds (Sound Sentry)> Choose visual warning> Apply> OK

I see where some Dell users have had success changing a registry key. Suggest always backing up your registry 1st

Registry - Backup and Restore

Start> In search box type regedit> Enter> Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Dell Computer Corporation\QuickSet\QuickSetControl and set it's value to 1

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support Forum. I am afraid this issue cannot be resolved remotely and it is a bit difficult to understand and know in details what exactly you removed/replaced. Since it started to occur after this change obvious this is the cause. Please, review these artciles :>>>> follow the appropriate instruction for your specific situation.  If they don't help, you can consult with HP Service center or bring the computer to HP authorized service center where the technicians will probably be able to help you solve the problem. If you cannot find a troubleshooting solution, contact HP Customer support for further assistance or to have the computer serviced.

Hi, khdphd, and welcome to the forum....

They say they cannot download the file? I have always seen every HP that uses those hkCMD.exe files to be able to download them for that computer in the event of a reinstall.

Did you look at software available for download for your computer? If it is there, then you can download it, uninstall the current version, reboot and install that one and it should load the original files back in place.

Try uninstalling hkcmnd from Programs and Features (it may be named something a bit more fancy)

And I know what HP *said* - but look anyway.

When I hit Caps Lock, a display pops up in the lower right corner of the screen to notify me of the change.  It looks like this: How do I stop this from happening?  I've found a bunch of workarounds via Google, and they all either don't work for me or don't apply.

 Looks like you have a wireless (bluetooth) keyboard. Easy way (if you don't use Bluetooth)Click Start.Type MSCONFIG.Allow User Account Control? - click Yes.Click Startup tab.Remove check marks from "Bluetooth Software" and/or "HP Desktop Keyboard".Restart computer. If you want to only shut down the little graphical presentation and you want to keep the bluetooth icon, use the steps above to prevent "HP Desktop Keyboard" from loading, but do not remove the checkmark next to bluetooth.And then prevent the OSD for the bluetooth caps lock indicator by making a minor change in the registry:Click Start.Type REGEDIT.Allow User Account Control? - click Yes.To backup your registry (in case soething goes haywire), select Computer, click File menu, click Export, give a name and save.After backing up registry, open each of the following registry values (the little folders) in this path:  HKEY_LOCAL_MCHINE_\SOFTWARE\Widcomm\BTConfig\General\Double-click the value KeyIndication in the list on the right.Change the hex value from a one (1) TO A ZERO (0).Close the registry editor window and restart your computer. You don't need to save anything - it happens on the fly (scary).

One of my clients has a T410 with Windows 7 64-bit installed.  When he turns on his caps lock, the indicator lights up and the same indicator appears on the screen and then stays present until the caps lock is turned off.  When caps lock is turned off the indicator disappears in about 3 seconds.  My other T410s are not experiencing this issue.  What can we do to change the indicator so that it only appears on-screen for 3 seconds?  I appreciate your help.

A:Caps lock indicator remains on screen at all times

I have checked with my clients who report this.  Both laptops are model 2522-2BU and it happens whether they use the laptop keyboard or an external keyboard.

Randomly my screen will go black, with the LCD backlight still on; some of the time the caps lock light flashes but not always. I have to force shut down with the power button, but it happens often during boot up. It's a brand new HP Pavilion 15-ab128na. Posts online seem to say the cap's lock light indicates a hardware problem, so it looks like I'll have to return it to HP. Worth mentioning: the problem occured before I installed linux, I hoped it would go away but it hasn't! Anyone else experiencing similar issues?

Got a HP Probook 450 G0 here, which is powering up with no screen display. No BIOS, no nothing. It isn't the backlight. You can hear fans spinning up, the Caps Lock key starts flashing, but nothing else happens. I've removed RTC/BIOS battery, nothing. Removed and swapped RAM, nothing. Plugged into TV with HDMI, nothing.  I'm starting to suspect it's something more complex - a motherboard problem, a BIOS problem, or a CPU problem. I seem to remember older HPs having Caps Lock blink codes for reporting issues, but I can't see any info about that for the ProBooks. Any ideas?

I'll be in a game, and press caps. The window will minimize. This has never happened before.

Also, when I click my cursor into a bar to type, then press caps, the blinking cursor thing goes away, and I must re click into the bar to continue typing.
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Hello everyone.  I'm attempting to help diagnose my sister-n-laws HP 15 laptop.  I've searched high and low for an answer but all I'm finding is people with different types of "3 beeps".  They either have 3 "short" beeps or 1 short with 2 long or something like that.  I can't find ANYTHING with 3 long beeps.  It does 3 long beeps twice and then nothing.  I can hear the hard drive spinning too. No HP or BIOS documentation ever mentions anything about 3 long beeps either.  Does anyone have any idea what is going on with this thing?

My Compaq CQ62-209WM was working great until a couple of weks ago.  When I turned it on the screen stayed black, the caps lock light blinks once every 5 seconds, and the wifi light stays orange.  Read on this forum of others with similar problems.I tried a hard reset and it worked the first time, long enough for me to back up the important stuff on my hard drive, but did not work the second time (or any time I have tried it since then).One blink indicates CPU failure so I ordered a new CPU and thermal material, dismanteled the unit and replaced the CPU and thermal material this evening. Still have black screen and blinking lights - still one blink every 5 seconds. Tried hard reset, no change.Any suggestions? Not able to replace computer at this time - willing to try almost anything.Thanks in advance.

Hi @micwtx ,  Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have looked into your issue about your Compaq Presario CQ62-209WM Notebook and issues with the flashing lights and not starting correctly. Here is a link to computer does not start. It has the LED blinking codes and suggests that it could be your System Board. Have you tried to reseat the memory and HDD? (it is in the document) Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices, as these could cause some issues. Plug the power adapter directly into a functioning wall outlet. Do not plug it into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source as this could cause and issue.Hope this helps you. Thanks.

I'm a sloppy typist. I don't know if I hit some key combo or what but I was typing a letter in word pad and suddenly my typing is in all caps. I have used a reg file to disable my caps lock key on this laptop because it gets in my way - a long time ago. I know it cannot be the caps lock key. I do not have a shift key sticking.

I saved the letter, then copied it to Polyedit another word processor, and it still types in all caps. Firefox does not seem to be effected. I even tried rebooting and nothing helped.

If, as it sounds, it is booting up but not ever displaying anything on the screen, check the cable between the motherboard and the screen. It might just be one of the connectors (at either end) has worked loose. With the computer well booted up, move the screen gently down to nearly closed. If you ever see anything on the screen then it could be the cable is faulty where it hinges.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Not a techie.  Can't get straight answer ANYWHERE.  New laptops tend to NOT have indicators on the keys.  Hoping Windows 10 has indicators that can be turned on and PROBABLY would show up in the tray at the bottom right of the screen. 
I have heard of sites where such things can be downloaded but again NOT a techie, so I hesitate to go outside of Windows/Microsoft for downloads.  I do not know what download sites are safe or spoofs.

Please plain English ... i.e. go to settings etc.  Or just give me a Microsoft approved site for download.

A:Screen goes blank for a few seconds during boot

It seems to be fairly normal for there to be a short loss of video just after the Windows logo, but 15 to 20 seconds, and the "No signal" message seems a bit odd.

If I recall correctly, that little space is when the video and other drivers are loading and/or finalizing their setup, and the computer is deciding what screen to use. I have read that the GPU actually scans on of its ports on startup, and that is what causes the screen to go blank for that short period, as the GPU is sorting out which screen to use for the primary monitor. It doesn't matter how many screens you have, it still goes through the check.

I would start troubleshooting by making sure that all of your drivers are installed and up to date. Check your Device Manager screen to see if there are any yellow triangles. Those might be slowing down your boot.

If those check out, we can move on to the Event Logs.

Hi all
I have run into a little bit of an annoying problem while logging onto my computer. I get to the login screen, enter my password, it then says welcome and fades out like usual. But insted of it going to my desktop it just goes blank for five to ten seconds with only the curser in the center of the screen spinning round as if it was loading somthing.
I have had this problem for a few months now and have lived with it. I know it is just my user account because I tried making a new account and it works perfectly.
Thanks to all

Ashley, you can try booting into safe mode and see if you get the same lag. If not, boot into safe mode with networking, and see if the lag returns. It may be your NIC card or driver. A possibility anyway. A Guy

On my old Sony laptop this problem never occurs, but after duel bootng OSX and Windows 7 on my MacBook I get this possible problem on every boot.

My MacBook starts as nromal, I select Windows 7 (OSX boots fine) and it just hangs on a blank screen for around 20 seconds with an underscore flashing the whole time before anything starts to happen (that bit where the Windows logo forms etc).

This makes the boot times around 1 minute or so, whereas on my old laptop they're only around 30 seconds.

This is Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit). Everything is updated, using Bootcamp 3.0 drivers etc, working perfectly just like XP did.

I'm sure this question has been asked before, but I have tried searching, and can't seem to find anyone with this problem. Is this just apart of booting? Why doesn't this happen on my other PC?


Edit: Mis-typed title, meant to say 20 seconds.

A:Blank Screen for 30 Seconds before boot starts?

You can try looking in the system log files (from the log viewer under admin tools). Ususally if a driver or piece of hardware takes longer than expected to become active a warning it put in the log.

On the other end of the spectrum is the Windows Performance Toolkit which you can DL from here:
Windows Performance Analysis Developer Center

It is much more involved but it can possibly pinpoint a specific driver that is hanging for 30 seconds. That is assuming that the black screen is during the windows boot and is not bootcamp itself waiting for something bfore actually starting the windows boot...

I looked up the HP error codes, one flash is supposed to signify a CPU problem...but I can run Half-life 2, WoW, Runes of Magic, and 8 track Guitar Pro 5 files just fine. So I figure my CPU's (AMD Turion x2 dual core @ 2.0 Ghz) got nothing wrong with it.

I've spoken to HP support, they told me to reimage my computer to factory settings...I've done that, twice....flashed the BIOS...and tried running startup repair....any hints?

Caps lock and Num lock reversed

On my new Gateway ML6720, the caps lock and num lock are OFF, but my caps lock and num lock lights are on. And vice versa. I don't remember it being that way this morning when I first turned it on.

Why are the lights reversed from what I expected?

Since it is New, I would call Gateway. They will have knowledge if this is a problem with the ML6720 model.

Hi blank shuts 20 - Dead Z820 screen down seconds after - all I have a HP z with dual CPUs that suddenly died It was working just Dead Z820 - blank screen - shuts down after 20 seconds fine then one morning when turned on the screen was black and every fan Dead Z820 - blank screen - shuts down after 20 seconds in there a lot BTW kicked in full belt This stayed until I pulled the power - the button did nothing So I went back to normal trouble shooting - removed everything and tried to boot up with just one ram stick also did this with two - one for each CPU in case this made a difference Now what is happening is at least a little calmer - the PC is turning on - still a blank screen but at least the fans seem to run normally but after about seconds the system powers off I would suspect something thermal but it it is turned on immediately after the shut down it takes the same seconds to shut down so it it was something overheating I would expect the second shut down to be much quicker I have swapped the graphics card but not had a chance to test the old one in another PC yet so suppose this could be the issue It seems like the system thinks something is not there and shutting down but I can't figure out what Any one got any ideas Ev

Hi there @Dip009?,  Thank you for joining in on the HP Support Forums and Welcome! This is a great place to ask questions, find solutions and get help from others in the community! I read your post on the HP Support Forums. I wanted to reach out to you and help! I understand that you had upgraded to Windows 10 and now you are having an issue with the screen going black when you plug the AC Power Adapter in or unplug it from your HP 15-r063tu Notebook PC.  Do you get any error with the black screen?Have you tried to see if you get the black screen in Safe Mode?Have you tried to run the power troubleshooter? Have you checked the Power Settings to make sure that the Brightness is not set to 0% when the power cord is plugged in?  Have you tried going into the Change Advanced Power Settings to make sure that none of those settings are set to turn the display black when plugged in?Have you tried doing Windows Updates? Have you tried doing updates using the HP Support Assistant? Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant if you need it. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers on your system at the time of purchase or that need updating.  Another option to try might be to go to the HP 15-r063tu Notebook PC Software and Driver's page, click on the orange Check Now button and HP will identify any out-of-date or missing drivers and software needed.  I have a couple of documents for you to read over for more troubleshooting steps.

Hi guys,

I am new to this forum and would like to enlist your help with regards to a problem I've been having.
A month ago I upgraded to Windows 8.1 (my computer started the upgrade automatically) and since then I have been having problems with my lock screen.
When the computer powers on, the lock screen is just totally grey (windows theme color) but with the icons (Ease of Access, Internet Connection, Power Options) still visible below. When I press a key or click on the screen, I am able to type my password and log in as per normal.
I was wondering if anyone here has a fix for this issue? I know it is not very major but I would appreciate if you guys could help me resolve it.

Thank you!

- Chris.

What happens if you try to assign a different wallpaper/background to the lock screen?

I m trying to fix a friend s computer It s a Dell Inspiron laptop I can t give more detailed specs because it s not in front of me The problem is that after about seconds after powering on the screen goes dark It happens no matter what - either a normal boot or after 30 seconds screen blank laptop 6000 goes Dell Inspiron a boot straight into BIOS The screen goes completely dark but the power LED stays lit Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop screen goes blank after 30 seconds Obviously the problem isn t with the LCD backlight because the BIOS screen appears fine although it doesn t stay on I don t think the problem is with power either because we were running it off AC and the indicator light on the power supply stayed on Plus the power LED stays lit and according to the BIOS the battery is at It happens to consistently to be a loose wire or bad connection I have been checking out the different BIOS options although it is hard when the screen keeps failing I don t see anything that could cause this My theories not that I am an expert at all is it could be some kind of a screen saver or power management feature that keeps shutting down the monitor to save the screen or power Or a temperature issue By the way are screen savers even necessary on a laptop Or perhaps the problem is with the monitor switching feature - we re going to try hooking it up to an external monitor to see what happens So what s going on and how do I fix it nbsp
