BIOS settings/computer boot issue

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I was trying to set up a dual-boot with Ubuntu and changed some of the BIOS settings, but now the computer doesn't restart.
I think the problem is that I disabled the legacy boot settings. Now when I try to start the computer I get that the power button blinks red with 6 beeps a few times before stopping. However, the computer does not boot even after waiting for 15 min.
Any idea about how to fix this?

Did you add a video card by any chance?


The 6 beep error code has something to do with the video.


You normally get that 6 beep error message if you disable legacy mode and enable secure boot.
