Hi everybody,

My homebuilt pc had a random bluescreen error the other day. Today, it full on froze and when I hard-reset the tower, it showed the typical Asus motherboard bios option and then blackscreens with a single flashing cursor. I've tried to boot the bios by pressing del or f2 but it just delays the blackscreen.

Question 1: can I boot windows without replacing the motherboard or ssd?

Question 2: is this likely a hardwear issue or a software issue?

Specs;
120 gb SSD; windows 7 64 hp installed
1 tb conventional hd; hold simply expendable files (mostly steam files)
Asus z170 pro gaming motherboard

Please let me know if you need any additional info!

Thanks!
