I'm gonna try to be as detailed as possible.

So I turned off my pc and went to sleep. The next morning I woke up turned it on, and somehow all my bookmarks from chrome was gone. So I opened Firefox, and my pc crashed. I restarted it. My monitor would show the asus logo and then go black. I restarted it again, it did the same thing but this time it showed a "Preparing automatic repair" message, before becoming black again.

I looked some stuff up and came to the conclusion that my OS is corrupt. This is when I went into my BIOS and checked some stuff. I noticed in the SSD Secure Erase tab that my SSD status was "frozen". Not being sure as to what that meant, I tried to do a clean windows install from a bootable usb drive. But it would just take me to a purple screen with a movable cursor on it.

I restarted my pc again, and now my monitor (Asus VC239H) had an orange light (it should be a white light). I looked up what the orange light meant and it said that my monitor isn't getting any signal from the CPU. I tried restarting a few more times but it did the same thing, it turns on, shows the asus logo, then says "No Signal/HDMI" and then shows an orange light when I press the power button on my CPU. I tested all my cables. Cleaned and reseated the GPU (Asus-GeForce GTX-1050ti) and RAMs (G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 2x8gb DDR4 2400). I removed my GPU and tried to turn the pc on using the built-in GPU. All the lights and fans seems to be working fine. But nothing worked.

Please help!!
