[SOLVED] PC stuck on BIOS splash-screen during boot

Nov 16, 2019

I've been having a bizzare issue since a couple hours ago.
My system was working perfectly fine, I gamed on it for a few hours and turned it off as usual.
Later today I turned it back on for another gaming session but was greeted by the system post screen, as if I had turned it off incorrectly. The system however seemed to post just fine. When I restarted it, my pc got stuck on a boot loop at the motherboard splashcreen, and has been like that since.
It only loads to that point, then freezes. It won't let me interact with anything or enter the bios, unless I unplug my SSD entirely, which is where I have everything installed.

I'd assume it would be a hard drive issue, but it's still relatively new, bought that SSD less than 5 months ago and this is the first time I've encountered any issues with it, so I really hope I don't have to get a new one.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

My PC specs:

CPU: Intel Core i7 6700
Motherboard: Asus Prime Z270-P
GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1060 6gb
Storage: Samsung V-NAND SSD 860 EVO 250gb
