Hp dv6 LIGHTS FLASHING (Black Screen)

Hi all, I have an HP DV6 and when I turn on the laptop both the Caps Lock and Num Lock lights flash together every 2 seconds. I have googled the issue so was hoping a nice tech would know what to do or shell i give it to our IT guy? cheers

Hardware fault, pretty sure DV6s had a common GPU fault

codes are in the 3rd post here

DV6s have multiple motherboard CPU, APU and dedicated GPU combinations.

Would it be an expensive fix?

It's pretty old, so you are better to put money towards a new laptop.

I had that happen to mine approximarely 3 years ago. It was fixable but would have cost over $600 and couldn't be guaranteed to last.
