So yesterday my pc was acring weird when I was browsing etc. My mouse cursor would lag heavy. System was unresponsive. I left it for a few mins but it was still the same.
I was forced to shutdown via power button.
Upon reboot all i see is the bios splash and then a black screen.
What ive tried so far.
Reseat the dimm slots 1 by 1 Connecting my monitor to Mobo. Reseat gpu Unplug HDD except boot drive. Unplug everything except m+kb and display Clear cmos with a screwdriver on those 2 pinboot priority is looking good
All my fans and lights works as usual. Even the fan control.
What else can i do?

Maybe, just maybe.... the CPU is thermal throttling. Check the CPU temps in BIOS, if able and/or check that the CPU cooler didn't work its way loose.

After creating a windows usb. It seems that Ive got my hands on a corrupted harddrive.
correct, i'm a bit late to this thread, but the first thing a system does after your bios splash screen is read your boot device, if it hangs there
It is a typical sign of something being wrong with your primary boot device, be it formatting or hardware related

Yeah, Currently stuck on my normal HDD that i used for storage.

Should I get the new m2 nvme or a cheaper sata ssd?
90% use of my pc is gaming
