HP G61-448ca won't turn on - black screen, flashing lights by caps lock and num lock

HP G61-448ca laptop won't turn on.  There is only a black screen, non-stop flashing lights by caps lock and num.lock, plus the orange network light. 

 

The light code list given by HP describes sequences of lights flashing 1 to 6 times.  However, this flashes non-stop. 

 

Two days ago it would not turn on, initially, but came on after several tries over a period of time.  Today it will not turn on at all.  It always runs hot. 

 

I can't find anyone posting that they have found a definitive answer to this problem.  Apart from cleaning and fan inspection, any thoughts?   It's about 3yrs old, and off warranty.
