So I bought a 500gb ssd to replace my 256 gb ssd that came with the computer. The laptop only has 1 ssd slot so I had to take out the 256 ssd and put in the new ssd. After doing this, the laptop displayed "no bootable device" on the screen. So then I figured I had to put windows on an external harddrive to boot windows. So I took out the new ssd I just put in and put in the 256 ssd. Now it wont turn on. The keyboard lights wont turn on, when I plug in the charger it gives me a blue light

That isn't how you install Windows. See this guide on Tom's Hardware for the proper steps:

I'll follow those steps, but can you tell me how to turn on my computer?

Sounds like a possible short. Put the new SSD in and follow the tutorial. See if that does the trick.

If not, your motherboard may be damaged.
I cant follow the tutorial because I can't put the media installer on a usb. I have only my computer to put the installer on a usb and my computer wont turn on at all.
