Start Up, Black Screen.

Hp Pavilion DV6
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Laptop went through an update and shutdown was slower than usual. Did a hard power off, and it worked fine the next day. The day after it would turn on, but the screen stays black. So far I've...

*Performed a Hard Reset.
*Tried BIOS recovery (Win +V and even B)
*Tried System Diagnostic Test (f2)
*Removed both RAM and tested each in different slots and even alone.
*Black Magic (virgin sacrifice)

Note: Screen is blank, no mouse arrow. Fan still runs. WiFi button is red (ever since Windows 10 update last year). Caps Lock button does blink, but only once every 3-4 seconds. So no light code that I've seen.
This has happened from time to time after windows update, but the hard reset usually fixed it.

Does anyone have anything else I can try? I'm running low on goats blood.
