Totally borked my BIOS after latest update + Solution!

h9-1215t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

After successfully updating my BIOS with the latest from HP I completely borked the BIOS by fiddling around with the settings. Push 'power on' 6 long beeps no video. Then a thought came back from the dim recesses of my mind from the dawn of time...that is about 5 years ago. I carefully(!) pulled the side cover of the machine and extra carefully removed the CMOS Battery (CR2032) and let it sit for 5 minutes. Reassemble, power on, successful boot. Remember this trick so you can tell your great-grandchildren...no wait they'll be quantum computing by telepathy...hmm.
