    Do you see a message saying "no bootable device found....."? I think your going to have to do a factory reset, if that's even possible now.

    well there isnt a message like that. and there is no way for me to do a factory reset that i can find without being able to use the computer past the bios.

    do you think it would fix it if i just bought a new hard drive to replace the old one? because that would be a cheap fix.

    How are you going to install Windows on the new hard drive?

    So it just goes right into the BIOS? Something isn't right with your BIOS settings if it isn't even trying to boot from something in the boot devices list?

    yup. as soon as you press the power button it shows the asus loading screen for about 3 seconds and then it goes straight top the bios.
