Hey, guys. I'm having an issue with an old CyberPower laptop.

When I start it up, it freezes in the BIOS startup splash screen, I am unable to get into the BIOS, and I see visual artifacts on the bottom of the screen... is there anything I can do to fix it or do I need to go ahead and buy a new computer?

How old is the laptop? Is it running on battery power or is it plugged in?

What BIOS messages are displayed leading up to the freeze?

I have a loading splash screen and am unsure on how to disable it is the issue preventing me from letting you know that... I know the progress bar is about 65% complete, if that helps at all... and I cannot get into the BIOS or get to the boot choice screen either one.
