M.2 ssd got disconnected from slot(was held in place with piece of tape). It happened while I was browsing web and than pc crashed, which is normal behaviour cause windows was running on m.2. But when i put it back, my pc started up, but it is now stuck at black screen, cant even enter bios. So i did some troubleshooting and got to the point where I removed all harddrives and gpu. After removing them i hooked up monitor to motherboard but still blackscreen. I even removed battery from motherboard to reset bios, but no help. So did i manage to somehow damage my motherboard when my ssd came loose? Any help much appreciated!

Why would the M.2 SSD on your platform be held in with tape? Didn't the board come with a standoff and screw or a clip(Asus Prime B360M-K) to secure the SSD in place?

But when i put it back, my pc started up,
What?! You mean the system powered itself back on?

The Asus Z170-a board did not come with standoff screw. Sorry for confusion with that sentence, I meant that when I put m.2 ssd in place again and than started up my pc it just is stuck at black screen.

Is it possible that my motherboard is fried? I have done multiple startups, but still black screen. I also did reset for motherboard.

If you are lucky you just corrupted the master boot record of the OS disk when you disconnected it during a write operation. Simply contact ASUS support by email and they will send you standoffs and screws, don't use tape.
