Does the hp omen have a cmos battery? I'm trying to get fix my laptop after I updated it. The caplocks key blinks 5 times slowly and 3 times rapidly. I've removed my ram and placed it back, held windows key and b (v) but to no avail so I'm going got a cmos reset only I can't seem to locate it.

OK thanks. Looks like that motherboard does not have a cmos battery.
You could go into the bios and use F10 to reset bios, then F10 again to save and exit.
You could also disconnect the power cord and the main battery to remove power to the board for 5-10 minutes to do the same thing.

If you rapidly tap the ESC key during Power-On, do you get a menu of options?
There you should be able to choose Bios from F10 at that point.
Does the bios open then?
To add, can you try disconnecting the hard drive before attempting to access the bios? see if that helps.
