Here is a user guide for that PC. 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04658261

On page 93 is the description of that beep code.  It states

Red Power LED blinks six times, once every second,followed by a two-second pause. Six beeps.

Possible cause   Pre-video graphics error

The problem might be on the graphics card.

If you check out the link I posted. -  There are three steps to complete in the block for five beeps, besides the bad graphics card.  If doing all of those and still no joy, then complete the steps in the block directly above that one. (five beeps) For the pre-video error. While the graphics card is still removed.

 

BTW: is this a SFF or Tower?

With the video card removed, check the memory chips, on at a time.
