    Could you please tell the sequence of flashes?

    Could be a defect CPU, GPU, BIOS corruption etc.

    There should be a certain number of flashes, then a break, followed by a certain number of flashes etc.
    Could you please tell the sequence?

    Check out the HP support forums; You'll find more posts from people with simular issues.
    Loads of complaints about the DV-series black screens, not booting or running 20/35 degrees hotter than chips specs. :(

    Try this:
    - Remove battery and charger.
    - Hold down power button for 30 secs.
    - Replace charger only and see if it powers on...
