Issue: BIOS not reaching post
Backstory: Several days ago,my slave HD started to lock up the OS with any related programs running from that disk. In an attempt to fix it, i used Hiren's boot cd and tried to have the HD ignore bad sectors. In the midst of trying this and that, my usb drive in which i was booting from, started appearing twice in the boot menu when pressing (f11?), in addition when posting it was displaying 99,B2,A2 slow enough to where i could see them instead of a rapid number display, at times appearing to hang at B2 and or A2. Second weird symptom i noticed was in the bios in the boot manager, i saw two extra instances of my primary HD (SDD) for a total of 3. I gave one a higher priority, saved then the computer restarted. This is the were i'm currently at, it displays a black screen. After pressing the Power button, i can feel the fan kick on,only indication i have of anything to go with is the LED light on the exteriror frame, lights the HDD LED for 3 seconds then cuts off.
Ive tried so far: Resetting the ECU - Pull battery out, unplug PSU, hold power button down for 30-60 seconds, plug PSU back in, attempt to boot, power off, insert battery back in.
Resetting the CMOS - Unplug CMOS battery wire from MOBO, wait 3 seconds, plug in, attempt to boot, unplug CMOS battery for 30 seconds to 5 minutes.
Remove GPU and RAM stick - Removed NVIDIA GPU, and the 12gb RAM stick, attempt to reboot.
I haven't had any issue with my stock cooling fan and i do not have anything over clocked.
Currently, i have the battery out of the laptop, and the cmos battery unplug from MOBO, will attempt to see what happens after 12-18hrs.
