Solved!

My system makes 6 Long BEEPs at the start of the post test and does not start.

H9-1300
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

While attempting to change the boot disk I loaded the default BIOS Settings.  On restarting the system made 6 long beeps and did not start up.

 

I have tried to clear the BIOS with the CMOS clear link and also by removing the battery waiting a while and then refitting it and plugging the power lead back in.  Nothing seems to work and I have not been able to find a way to down load the manual from the HP site.

Hi:

 

Does your PC have an add-on PCIe x16 video card?

 

If so, setting the BIOS to its defaults may have caused the problem.

 

If your PC has a video card, remove it, and see if the PC will start up.

 

Then follow the guidance at the link below to reinstall the video card...

The originally fitted graphics card was still in place but removing it stopped the error.  We then removd a blanking plate fitted over one onboard graphics connector and were able to get into the BIOS and to boot the system.
