The embedded controller times out waiting for the BIOS.

I recently bought a used laptop, but when I power it on the caps lock flashes 5 times (slowly) then 3 times (fast). I found out this is a "The embedded controller times out waiting for the BIOS." error and was wondering if there's any way for me to fix it.
