computer wont boot into bios, just black screen after ssd got unplugged while running

While my computer was running idle, I had my side panel off, messing with my 1tb hdd to try to get it to be detected, as it has been having problems. While hooking it up, the power came loose to my ssd, and now my computer wont even boot into bios, it just stays as a black screen. When I turn it on the fans and
Leds light up like normal, but nothing is displaying on the screen.

  1. What SSD do you have?
    You're probably going to have to secure wipe it and install windows again. SSDs hate loosing power, I has the same think happen when I had to force windows to shut down which is why I keep disk images of my drives so I only had to restore from my drive image.

    Thanks for your reply. However my main concern is not the data on my ssd, but rather that I fried something inside my computer. Normally when I turn it on it won't even boot into the bios, just sit at a black screen with no response from the monitor. However, I did turn the computer on and left it at the black screen for around 5 minutes, where it finally booted into the bios. Would you have any idea why the boot up is taking so long, or how to fix it?

    I've seen it many times where a Window computer takes 5 to 10 mins (yeah, 10 mins...) to boot after a power outage or system crash. It's doing something to recover....

    Now, after that 1st really long restart everything is fine, how about your system? (was it just a one time occurrence?)
  4. Try clearing your CMOS. It's also possible your SSD is toast.
