Black screen and caps lock blinks 5 time

HP Recommended
HP EliteBook 820 G3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have HP EliteBook 820 G3 laptop.I dual booted the laptop about 2 months ago and there was no issue.Now the screen turns black and the caps lock blinks 5 times. I went to troubleshoot but the page says there will be long pauses blink and short blink.But in my case, there are continuous 5 blinks.How to troubleshoot and recover my laptop?

@mk1011 

You said the PC is dual-booted -- so what OS did you install, a Linux OS?

 

IF you replace that with a Linux distro, or add a Linux distro, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- including solving any problems with booting the other OS and/or installing the other OS.

Your best bet for support with issues with Linux is to contact the support forum of the distro you are using.
