Hello everyone.

Yesterday I was trying to download a VST Plugin for Fruity Loops and actually it was a virus and after restarting my computer I had a bluescreen. I tried everything to get it back to normal, like backuping, starting in safe mode and so on. after that I got the windows 10 iso on my external hard drive and started to install windows 10 in UEFI-Mode on a new SSD but always had a blackscreen after a while randomly. That triggered me so hard, that I went into Bios and changed everything... That wasn't smart and now when I try to start my computer Its always blackscreen and I cant even go to BIOS. I want to ask you guys if you maybe have an Idea how to fix that. Is it possible to reset my computer completely without turning it on?

Thanks already.

The after effects of downloading and trying to install a pirated plugin are often quite bad.
Yeah, I learned from that. I dont know why it never happened to me though. I seemed to be lucky all the time, thats why I started trusting every "okay website". Kinda dumb of me xd But why are people doing such things, I dont get it.. To try out their coding skills and then be so proud of it to use it on others or what is the motivation, I really don't get it : O meeh

Or, the malware was always there and you just didn't notice.

In any case, don't pirate software.

Tom's Hardware has a strict policy regarding assistance with pirated software. No help at a all.
The only thing I'll suggest is a full wipe and reinstall.

Closing this.
