Stuck at black screen, commands don't work

Hello, my laptop had some sort of weird event and it reset. I think it might be power related, since my wife was cleaning up and unplugged it, removed the fused power strip it was plugged into and replugged it into the wall. It failed to bootup at that point. I tried resetting the BIOS, it said it was corrupted. So I updated with a USB and the file from the HP site. Still wouldn't do anything. Reset CMOS and updated BIOS again, same issue. If I hit ESC or F10 during boot, I get a blank screen with white text at the bottom left saying the selection from the button (startup paused etc...) Has my motherboard crashed? This model has only an internal SSD and no HDD, could the SSD be corrupted?
