Looking at the service manual, it doesn't say anything about five beeps without the blinking LED. With the LED, it means a memory issue. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Welcome to the forum.
I am not a HP employee.
Five beeps on a HP system board manufactured in 2012 indicates possible RAM failure or system board/CPU failure.
Reference this HP document (LInk) for details.

Thank you! That was really helpful. And it turns out, that was my problem - a CPU failure.
Fortunately, the CPU failure wasn't major - turns out while taking it out of the other board, I managed to get a little thermal paste on the pads. (I, uh, mistargeted the thermal paste a little and got some on the socket cover.) Cleaned them up and now it's booting just fine again.
