Windows 7: Power loss during reboot

Power loss during reboot

We had a power loss for about 1 sec. during which I happen to be rebooting. After I cannot access the OS, the BIOs, or even the DVD drive. I get the Bios Logo screen only. Any suggestions for solving this issue are greatly appreciated.

Can you get into the BIOS/UEFI settings?
There may be a note on that BIOS splash screen telling which key to press.

If you can get into the BIOS settings, go to the EXIT Menu and Restore Defaults.

If you can't get into the BIOS then try a Clear CMOS procedure (Note Clear CMOS and CLRTC are the same thing):
  • Note all your current BIOS settings
  • Shut down the computer > remove the power cord.
  • Remove the motherboard 3v coin battery.
  • Move the CLRTC jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3.
  • Touch a metal part of the case and Press and Hold the reset button for approx. 30 seconds to discharge all power from the board.
  • Put the CLRTC jumper back on pins 1-2.
  • Replace the 3v battery > replace the power cord > boot.
  • Immediately go back into BIOS and reset all your preferred settings. If the CLRTC worked you will need to reset the date and time in BIOS.
Can you hear/see all the parts running?

Thanks for your efforts. The SSD had retired itself. All good now.

The SSD died? And you replaced it?
What brand and model was it?
How old?

Samsung 840 EVO about 1 year old. Support approved the RMA immediately. Should be here soon.
