Getting Beep Codes After Running Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware

I'm on a Windows 10 machine which has been consistently working for two years. I got a virus, which I thought should be simple to remove. The virus basically just downloaded extensions into my google chrome and put adware on certain webpages. I used Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware to try to fix it. I let it do a full scan, and quarantined everything it told me to. Then, it told me to restart, and I did. Unfortunately, my computer would not boot back up. I get a beep code that I've never seen mentioned anywhere before: 4 short, 1 long, 2 short. I'm at a loss for what to do, I simply have no idea. Any suggestions?

It's an AMI BIOS but I can't find that beep code listed anywhere either.

 

Unplug it.  Open it up and locate JBAT1.  (See 1-28 of the manual:  https://us.msi.com/M...tml#down-manual) Short the two pins for 10 seconds then remove the short and power it back up.  (Alternatively you can just remove the 3.3 v battery for a while).  This clears the BIOS.  May help or at least change your beeps to something on the list:
