I just installed (dual boot) ubuntu 16.04 LTS in a dual boot mode (along side Windows 8.1). I get into my laptop if I choose Ubuntu. However, if I choose to boot with Windows, I get black screen. One interesting thing that I noticed, with hit and trial, is that if I entered into grub command line (I did this by pressing ESC when I get option to choose OS in my grub screen) and enter any garbage stuff (winch result in error message) followed by ESC key, it direct me to Windows? Can you please help me to get solve this issue.

Not enough information. You need to boot Ubuntu and go to the site at the link below and get the boot repair software. Use the 2nd option to add the :ppa to download it. Then run it by selecting the option to Create BootInfo Summary and post a link to the output here.
