    Experience with my HackBook Pro and HP Support

    My HackBook pro (HP ProBook 4540s) was working flawlessly since Nov 27, 2013 when I bought the hardware. All of the sudden, on Dec 28, 2013, my HackBook Pro would no longer boot. Instead, the CAPS LOCK key would flash continuously (there was no obvious pattern to the flashing LEDs) and there...
