Need to determine ROM family for computer that won't boot

HP Recommended
Omen 880-160se
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,  Which is the correct ROM family for my computer -- 8437 or 84F6? My computer won't boot so I can't find out that way. Is there another way? I need  to know the ROM family to make a recovery disk using the correct BIOS file. Thank you.

You seem to think this is a BIOS issue -- so does the PC not even start up?  Asking because "won't boot" can mean a LOT of different things.

When I turn on the computer, it gives two long, low sounding beeps then two short, higher-pitched beats, which I believe means the BIOS is corrupted. Nothing appears on the monitor.  My next step was to recover the BIOS using a USB recovery drive. I got stuck when I had to choose which BIOS file to use. Thank you.
