My Compaq 615 laptop screen doesn't come on, instead it blinks capslock 5 times. What shlould I do?
It has an AMD Athlon X2 processor, with Radeon 3200 graphics.
I didn't install any new software or hardware recently. All I did was work with the system at night, shut it down, and when I turned it on the following morning, the screen refused to come up, but the caps lock blinks 5 times.

Sorry to hear that. Please refer to the Blank Screen LED Error Codes document from HP Support. It sounds like a "General system board failure." The explanation says to contact HP for assistance. The motherboard might need to be replaced, and you will probably require the assistance of a technician to fix the problem.
