Bios freezes on HP Z820

HP Z820
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I went on vacation for 10 days and came back to find that my workstation doens't want to boot up. The small curser under the "V" in the screenshot doesn't even blink. Not sure where to start with this. Is there a key to press on bootup, or maybe a jumper to try resetting the bios? CTL-ALT-DEL does not do anything either. Must power off in order to try rebooting. All to no avail though.

 

(yes the screen is shamefully filthy)...

I unplugged an external USB3 drive I had plugged into the front of the machine and then tried rebooting and for some odd reason, it worked! Happy days are here again...
