Had a rather eventful evening with my pc.
So, have a bit of info to share before getting to the issue. I got two computers, one that I use as my personal, and another one used as a server for a minecraft and gmod server, just a little hobby thing with friends.
Now, my own pc dies while I was sleeping, as I started troubleshooting I came to the conclusion that my psu had died. I got worried that other parts might've gotten damaged, so i took the psu from the server pc and used it in my own to see if anything broke. Everything seemed to work fine and the pc booted without any issues.
Due to me being a bit low on funds, I decided to just switch over and use the server pc as my main one, still treat it as a server, but add my gpu into it so I could at least join up and play with friends occasionally. This would be my temp solution until I had saved up for a fully new pc, my old pc needed an upgrade on ever part anyways.
I decided to rebuild the server into my own case, as that case was a lot better and I could add some more fans. Moving everything over went smoothly and I felt confident that everything was done correctly.
As I booted it up, the gpu caught fire instantly. Luckily I had the side panel off and quick access to a switch to break all power. I instantly did it, blew the tiny fire out and removed the gpu. On the surface nothing looked damaged, not even the gpu but it did have a burnt electricity smell.
I decided to try and boot the pc up without the gpu, and as a relief I saw everything boot up, all fans turned on, screen turned on and no weird beeping sounds were made. Sadly thats where the next issue came. The pc now gets to the manufacture boot screen (asus in my case) and the instructions on how to enter bios shows up. After that nothing happens, it freezes in that screen. It wont boot up automatically, and I cant enter the bios as I get no reaction when pressing the keys on my keyboard. The keyboard do light up so I know its connected. After looking more closely on the mobo I can see the boot_device_led is glowing red.
After a lot of googling I have tried using other ram sticks, remove the cmos battery, boot without hdd, switch keyboard and usb ports, nothing. The pc still boots normally to the point of the asus windows, but after that it freezes and the boot device led turn on with a red light.
Any idea on what might be wrong? Can it possibly be fixed?
