Hey guys my Dell Latitude D830 will not display the bios, nor does anything come on the screen at all when I hit the power button. I cannot open the CD/DVD tray or boot from CD/DVD because the BIOS won't come up. I cannot turn it off by hitting the power button, and it just turns off by itself in 30~ seconds. This happened after I put a new hard drive in and installed windows 7, but I only installed chrome and then shut it down. Half an hour later what I described happens.

The CAPS LOCK indicator is flashing

Thanks in advance for reading this, and hope the community can help

Caps lock flashing?.... reseat the memory modules... remove Hard Drive and attempt to boot... probably bad memory though
