Computer won't boot and gives me 8 beeps after I downloaded the most recent BIOS Update on 12/27/20

HP Recommended
Pavilion P-5700
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

After I downloaded and installed new BIOS and restarted computer does NOT start and gives me 8 beeps. I have tried rebooting with the MS key and the B key pressed and nothing happened. I've tried restarting with MS key and V key and nothing happened. I have tried my RECOVERY flash drive and the result is the same which is no reboot and 8 beeps sound. I have read other people's comments with the same issue but have NOT seen any successful recovery. What do I do now? I thought about unplugging the C drive in hopes that the RECOVERY flash drive would apply its own BIOS but I am not sure if this will lead me to restoring the previous working BIOS. Please help !!!!!

When you power-on your computer, can you enter BIOS SETUP mode, or do the "8 beeps" occur before you can attempt to enter that mode?
