Hello. Last week I replaced most of the insides of my PC with new parts. Everything was working perfectly for the first few days, but today, I was chilling online in a social app, when suddenly my computer froze. I couldn't select anything, so I decided to do a hard reboot. I shut my computer off, and rebooted it and went to use the toilet. 10 minutes later I came back and found that I was still at the pro series msi bios setup/boot menu screen. It shouldn't take this long to boot up, so I shut my pc down, unplugged the power, held my power button down for 30 seconds and unplugged all unnecessary devices. Still I get the same issue. 


I can get into bios setup which takes me to an msi screen where I can examine different parts of my pc, and I can access my boot menu. I have 2 drives. a 240 gig ssd and a terabyte hdd. I am dual booting windows 10 and windows 8.1 from the ssd. when I go into the msi menu, it clearly shows that it detects my ssd and hdd, and when I try to enter the windows boot manager manually via boot menu, I am just brought back to the pro series bios setup/boot menu selection screen to get stuck with a loading wheel of death.


when I view my storage devices in my msi click bios menu, I can see my drives say hotplug disabled. is that bad? or normal?


Also just tried to load windows from the usb I originally installed windows from. I get the same issue. cannot boot from usb.


I'm not sure how to tell you my system specs without getting on my pc, but I'll tell you what I know.


my pc parts include:

cooler master hyper 212 evo (cpu fan)

evga supernova nex650g 650 watt gold power supply

msi z170a pc mate motherboard.

intel i5 6600 processor

nvidia gtx 970 gpu

8 gigs of ram

corsair force 240 gig ssd (refurbished, but new to me)

my old hdd 1 terabyte.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
