Hey everyone,

 

This is far beyond my abilities to fix it seems. When I try accessing my Bios by pressing delete, or using the windows 10 boot menu, it freezes.

I have tried re-installing windows 10, full and reset, formatting the entire HDD and reinstalling windows, taken my laptop apart and tried resetting the Bios by removing the bios battery. 

 

Any help here would be fantastic, thank you.

You are pressing delete repeatedly and rapidly during start up? Try pressing F2 repeatedly and rapidly instead.

Thanks for the reply and advice Rocky. Just gave that a try, no luck I'm afraid.

If easily accessible I would remove your hard drive and see accessing UEFI freezes the computer? If it does then you have a hardware and not a Windows problem.

Given that a try already removed SSD & storage drive. Even tried without ram which obviously didn't work. Cheers for the suggestion, though!

This is crucial to finding any issue related to a specific problem. For instance, my Alienware Alpha has had the same problem your Laptop is currently having.

Yup, because the key that causes UEFI to be invoked during boot can and does differ by brand.  On my HP laptop it's ESC.  I wrote a post long ago regarding this, UEFI Boot Example from HP 15 Series Laptop

Sorry for the late replies. I managed to corrupt my Windows install trying to fix my bios lol. It's a MSI GE60 2PC Apache Laptop.

Judging by the research done with this model, A lot of people have had to have it sent back because something with the BIOS just plain died.

 

I will suggest one thing: If by some chance of luck the Graphics Card is removable, try that.

Hey Retro,

Really? I never knew that! I thought it would be more known when you google the laptop. My bios used to work. Already removed the ssd and d drive. I can't, or want to try, to get to the graphics card. :(

Not looking good!

If it's out of warranty, And the BIOS really is screwed out of order, I'd say salvage what parts you can and just apply them to a new build. It's what I did with my old Laptop.
