Hi, bare with me here as I try to explain this as clearly as possible. So yesterday I tried to boot my laptop only to get a black screen, no bios/post, nothing. Power lights come on, fans spin, but that's it.
I had tested it down to the point where I was pretty sure it was a GPU/Motherboard issue. It has always run pretty hot so my plan was to do a GPU reflow.
However this took a strange turn this morning. After leaving it sitting for 12 hours I tried to boot it up and surprise, it went into post. After that it went to a windows update screen, went to updating 100%, then I got a blue screen of death with the error code "worker thread returned at bad irql" then it restarted. After that straight back to black screen of death and can't get it to post again.
This has really confused me as I was sure it was a mobo/gpu issue until this and was all set to perform a reflow today. Now, not so sure what to do.
If anyone has some helpful insight into my issue I would very much appreciate it.
