    What type of drive do you have in your laptop? If you remove the hard drive, are you able to access the BIOS?

    Do you have any other drives installed besides the OS drive?

    Every time I did an install I would have to remove all the drives or windows wouldn't behave correctly until after drivers and such were installed. Namely the chip set.

    I recommend removing the HDD and see if it will let you boot into the BIOS.

    I think before tearing apart the entire laptop:

    Remove the AC Adapter, Battery, and the CMOS Battery. Wait one full minute. Reinstall the batteries and AC Adapter.

    This will reset your Bios to default settings hopefully undoing whatever issue is keeping you from getting into the BIOS.

    Did you try removing all of the cards (MSATA, Wifi) and all but 1 stick of ram?

    Try removing the GPU and see if it works with just the intel CPU graphics?

    If none of this works, it may be time for a newer laptop.
