Why is my laptop not turning on?

My laptop shows 3 slow blinks and 5 fast blinks and will not display anything. If this is a problem with the processor, what are my options?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The "3.5 code" or 3 slow blinks and 5 fast blinks indicates a potential CPU/motherboard failure.

Probably best to remove hard drive, for your data, and send laptop to HP for repair.
