Won't start after change in BIOS.

hp pavilion 550
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Had problem with updating windows 10, contacted microsoft support and they couldn't help after several tries. 

Made a start cd and usb but the computer wouldn't start in any case. Went to hp support on web, found a site to alter the BIOS. Followed instructions exactly. 

Now the real problem: the computer dosen't start at all, just sending beeping signals. Can't enter the BIOS. The signal i 6 beeps. Can not find any resetbutton.

HELP PLEASE

Hi

 

Plug into a wall socket.

 

 

  • With the PC off, press and hold the Windows logo key and the B key at the same time.
      note:
    On some models, it might be necessary to press and hold the Windows logo key and the V key.
  • While pressing those keys, press and hold the Power button on the computer for 2 to 3 seconds, and then release the Power button but continue to hold the Windows logo key and the B or V key until the HP BIOS update screen displays or you hear a beeping sound (usually 8 beeps).
    The HP BIOS Update screen displays, and the BIOS update begins automatically. This might take several minutes, and you might hear additional beeping sounds.

Hope this helps.

 

HP have prepared rather lengthy documents,
and there are videos to watch, to cover, seemingly, all BIOS eventualities.

I've tried all that already but not helping. 

Another thought, I have a wireless keyboard. Is that a problem for those solutions?
