HP Laptop Caps Lock Blinking (SOLVED)

HP Laptop Caps Lock Blinking

Is your HP laptop caps lock blinking? This is a BIOS issue, BIOS chip issue, or BIOS corruption issue and I have the solution in this article.

Here is how to fix your HP laptop caps lock blinking and screen not turning on:

  • Hold down the power button until your laptop fully shuts down.
  • Hold Windows key + B key and press the power button whilst still holding down the keys until the display comes on.
  • Let the HP BIOS recovery complete and your laptop will restart and turn on.

HP Laptop Caps Lock Blinking FIX

If you are holding down Windows key + B and your laptop will not go into recovery mode then do the following:

  • Insert a USB stick into another computer, right click on it and format it in FAT32. This will wipe the stick.
  • Go to HP Support and go to drivers and laptops.
  • Type in your serial number (here is how to find HP serial number)
  • Go to BIOS and download the newest one
  • Open the .exe and follow the wizard.
  • Select your USB recovery flash drive.
  • Then Eject the USB and plug it into the faulty laptop that has the blinking caps lock.

Now you can continue with the rest of the fix.

  • Hold down the power button until your laptop fully shuts down.
  • Hold Windows key + B key and press the power button whilst still holding down the keys until the display comes on.
  • Let the HP BIOS recovery complete and your laptop will restart and turn on.

FInding Your Serial Number

Your serial number should be located on the back of your laptop or inside the battery compartment. You may have to remove your battery to find it.

You can also download HP support software which may tell you what serial number you have. This is important because you need to download the right BIOS software for the faulty laptop and not the one that you are creating the recovery drive on.

Conclusion

Usually, when your HP laptop caps lock is blinking, the screen is completely black and won’t turn on. Generally, you will see two blinks from the caps lock button. This is a BIOS problem and you just need to go into HP BIOS recovery to fix this.

Most HP laptops will come with BIOS recovery built in so you won’t have to go through the USB method.

Sometimes the wifi button can also start blinking and your laptop may even beep twice.
