Solved!

BIOS

HP Recommended
HP Laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Every single time I boot up my laptop, it goes to the bios screen, says initalizing, then just shuts off. It just keeps doing this over and over and if I let it continue to do this, it will just turn off and the caps lock will blink, 5 long times and 3 short times. Can someone help me out here?

Hey there, I actually ended up figuring this one out myself! All I had to do was take out the CMOS battery, then boot up my computer. The BIOS ended up loading and all seems to be working now. Thanks for trying to help though.
